hey ladies, you all have been getting to know each other while i was sleeping then doing the morning school run i see, lol im a Kiwi by blood but my parents are in Oz atm my FIL and step-MIL are in Canada and my MIL is in Sweden but OH was born in South Africa and my family mostly still live in NZ lol we are pretty spread out
yeah , me and DH met online and his dad had moved him and step mum and brothers to Canada from the UK for work ( they came to the UK when DH was 6 from South Africa ) and DH's mum had moved to sweden with his sister about the time he went to Canada with his dad, I was planning to go to Canada but DH decided that Uni out there wasnt what he wanted so returned to England to go to Uni here and I came here ( part of a plan to see Europe and ive still not gotten out of the England! cept for visits to DH's mother ) and my parents moved to Brisbane for my Dad's work in early 2008 before DS1 was born and left 2 of my sisters in NZ who are now married one with a toddler and pregnant agian the other only married earlier this year and no kids on the way yet lol. DH's father then moved to Maylasia for work then took early retirement in NZ (because Step-mil's parents live there ) taking DH's brothers with him but the earthquakes scared him and Step-MIL off and then went back to Canada at the beginning of this year leaving DH's full brother in NZ with his girlfriend.
lol complex family, DH and our boys only got to meet my Dad earlier this year at my sisters wedding, my Mum came out to the UK when DS1 was born so DH had met her and she met ds1, I thank God for Skype else keeping in touch would cost us a fortune
yay!!!! good morning everyone and welcome NDH and leopard!!! so nice to get to know more sisters in Christ!
NDH- thats a fab testimony you have! i wont go over the big details of my testimony again, as i think i typed it somewhere in the beginning of this thread. basically, i was saved about 4 years ago, even though i believed in God before that, i did not know Him. i did not pray much or have a relationship with Him, didnt read the bible at all. i just believed He was there and He created everything. how much sweeter it is to converse with Him daily. i love to talk to Him and listen to what He has to say to me. its a beautiful walk that im thankful i didnt miss out on entirely! my Dh was saved about 3 or so years ago after much prayer. my family now has been led to go to church, bible study together, pray, and live by His grace. its amazing to know how much we have changed.
we have recently been led by the Lord to submit our bodies to Him for His purpose. we were pregnant with our 5th child and i prayed for Him to show me what birth control to use. i didnt want anymore children. He has turned that completely around and asked that i trust Him with my body and know that His plans are greater than mine. we are now pregnant with our 6th and have no idea how many we will end up with. we wont ever prevent any children and we wont ttc anymore. just leaving it all in His hands. we have already gotten presecuted for this, and i expect any way the Lord leads someone they will be persecuted by the world when they agree and follow. our own family, friends, and sadly even other christians make comments to us that we have too many children. we have no fear of it though, as the Lord is leading the way and will always take care of us. i compare it to the person the Lord leads to sell all their things and take up missions in other countries. im sure people will think that person is crazy for doing such things, but to that person the Lord has spoken to them and they know they are doing His will for their life.
wow hun, im sorry its taking so long. the longest i was ever ttc was 5 months and it was horrible. it takes a toll on your emotions. i cant even begin to imagine 14 months. my heart goes out to you i hope the hsg works!
