Welcome and Blessings!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I have named this blog "Running to the Cross" because that is what I often find myself doing...running to be with my Lord Jesus! I often cover many aspects of life on my blog, as it is my journal. I used to write things down in all sorts of notebooks, but my writings would soon be lost. So I decided that it was time to start a blog and share my thoughts and ideas with others. Many topics you will find here are prayers, homemaking and organization, children and pregnancy, funny stories, and the challenges of parenting and motherhood. If you enjoy my blog and leave me a comment, you are likely to have me visit! I love meeting others and gleaning from the lives of others. May you be blessed! Your friend in Christ, Heather

The Wait is Over...

Yes...it is a definite miscarriage.

It all started yesterday morning. I am doing okay with it...though, I'd rather not have to go through miscarriage AGAIN...

As these are the dates that I have miscarried (including this present one):

  • December 22, 1999
  • June 3, 2001
  • August 4, 2006 (ectopic pregnancy surgery)
  • July 2, 2008
I remember each and every miscarriage as it was yesterday...the pain I felt with each one, the struggles I had as to why God has to take these precious lives away from me...

But our days are numbered, and some of our children only have a few weeks in the womb...others maybe more...but it is all in God's perfect will.

Nothing happens outside of God's will. He has shown me that time and time again. I am at peace with this miscarriage as I am with all of my miscarriages. I know God has His plan and His purpose for each and every challenge that comes our way. This is one of the ways He draws us nigh unto Him and gets our attention.

I guess I will just snuggle with my youngest for now as she is a very sweet and petite baby...
Thank you for all your prayers and comments, they blessed my heart and spirit!

You may be having peace about the miscarriage, but I'm here grieving for you. I love your attitude about it, I wish I could say mine was the same....

I pray for you! I know what you're going through....my last miscarriage is still very fresh in my mind.

Hey! We're the same age!


Take care of you, and get lots of rest and vitamins!

Eat another potatoe!
I had to eat raw potatoes for a couple of weeks and still whenever I am making some another way, I will eat a few slices(and the children have come to like them also with a little salt). I know I don't know all the details, but if you just started to bleed again, then maybe you are very deficient in Vit. K, like me, having lots of children close together. My heart is with you on this & I am praying for you. If you have other information (you don't have to share with me) that confirms otherwise, I don't want to give you a false hope, but I DO so want you to not lose this one, or anymore for that matter!
I really hope you're just deficient, sis!
Prayers abound for you,
