Well these past couple of months have been filled with every range of emotions. In July my dad learned he has stage 3 lung cancer. Attempts by my wife and I to become pregnant have been expensive and unsuccesful. There have been bright points too. My school age class at work was the best I have ever had and we had a terific summer. I experiened my first Cursillo. My wife and I just began PRIDE Foster and Adoption classes. I'm not sure what God has in store forus but I know that he wont give us more than we can handle. I just dont like being in controland I hate the unknown. I guess I just need to trust and turn things over tohim.

Okay I went to our church's Easter Vigil mass tonight. The mass started of with the church in darkness and we went outside and each one of us lit a candle and that is what lit the church up for the first part of mass. As the mass is going on I look up to one of the stained glass windows above the altar and it looks like someone is shining a light in from the outside or something. I look again and I see an image of Jesus standing in the window. I kept looking and it and it was as if he was watching over the mass. I was very overwhelmed by what I was seeing. As I was standing there looking at this vision of Jesus I felt a sense of calm and peace come over me and God layed on my heart that my wife was pregnant. We have been trying for 2 years to have a baby and I just ovewrwhelmed with the feeling that she was pregnant with a daughter. I was so overwhelmed with emotion. People may say my eyes were playing tricks on me or whatever, but I KNOW WHAT I SAW AND WHAT I FELT.
