Out of Control…

You know what’s amazing? The last 3 times I’ve left the country crisis happens at home. I don’t know why, but it’s been a really hard year and there’s so much I’m still processing. This past week my best friends dad died, a friend miscarried, and Lucia Rae Morrison went to be with the Lord. I’m torn with grief yet, I have a two year that doesn’t let me stop to think for even a minute. Is that the Lord’s grace?

I don’t know why bad things happen to good people…it’s a tough one. Even more so, I don’t know why I think everything should be fair. It’s not fair that I have good health and someone else doesn’t or that I’m married to an amazing man and someone else isn’t. But I think it’s healthy to ask the questions and talk things out with those closest to me…or to the whole world through my blog :) 

I really needed good news this week and I got some. Another friend is expecting…and I’m reminded that there’s a miracle in our midst again. I’m smiling.

Blogging is a funny thing. I guess I just needed to write for a minute. Everyone has hard weeks…this was one of mine. Thanks for listening.

hey noemi – wow thinking about you with everything going on – praying God gives you lots grace and encouragement!!!! Let me know if I can do anything to help. Like maybe watch adriah while you have a coffee date with God? And then maybe we could take her swimming together?

I have been following your blog since the sextuplets were born and I found your site. I then realized that I know of your husband and some of the staff at your church through the Morrow family and MCC. Anyway, you have encouraged me through your blog and I absolutely LOVE your photography. You are truly blessed with an amazing talent from the Lord. Someday, I would love for you to photograph my family. I also have a 2 1/2 yr old little girl, and they sure do lighten the heaviness of life at times 🙂 I am saying a prayer of encouragement and peace for you today. I find myself asking many of those questions as well…..how does God decide who to allow certain things to happen to some and not to others, etc? Hard stuff, but God is faithful and His ways are not ours…Have a great day Noemi, and thanks for the blog and sharing of yourself and your amazing photos!

I feel the same way at times…hang in there. Our prayers are with you during this hard week.

God Bless you!

Hi Noemi,

Kathleen Heger here…last time I saw you was at Jenny L’s wedding last fall, taking amazing pictures no doubt? Do you have an email address you could send my way?

Hi! Thank you for sharing. As one who has been through a tumultuous week also, I do understand the need to have validation of the feelings that we have. Then to remember that God is in control and has allowed us to have the faith, family and friends who can share these times with us is vitally important. I continue to claim the promise that says, “Hold on, my child. Joy comes in the morning. Weeping only lasts for a night.” Your beautiful photos are once again awesome!
