If I were going to say that this season has been busy, that would be an understatement. Between my 2nd to last semester of school, getting ready to move, and welcoming a baby girl in a couple of months, the daily excitement keeps the blood pumping for sure. To add to all of that, my 2-year-old, Hudson is quite the handful.
Starting the nonprofit “The Fletcher Foundation” has been the biggest joy that I could ask for. This week we are sending out our first check to help pay someone’s bill that has gone through a miscarriage. That is what we wanted to do on our mission to help eliminate bills due to miscarriage or stillbirth. If you want to learn more about it, check us out at thefletcherfoundation.net.
Anyways, fall is my favorite season. It seems like we are going to go right into winter just as we skipped spring this year. Through all the busyness, our Lord is so good and he always provides for me. Our new small group through our church is the biggest blessing and I love going Tuesday nights and growing to be more like Him.
Lately it seems like life has been a whirlwind. This last Friday we celebrated the life of Fletcher. Fletcher is our baby boy that was a stillbirth baby. We had a great event with all of our close friends and family. Everyone that needed to be there to make the event special made it.
Through this loss, we have started “The Fletcher Foundation.” The Fletcher Foundation’s mission is to provide financial and emotional support for anyone that goes through miscarriage or stillbirth. It is an experience I wouldn’t wish on anyone and is the most difficult thing me or my wife has had to go through.
When things are hard we have options. We can let it destroy us or through it we can glorify our creator. Our God is good to us even though our life doesn’t go the way we want it to. It is so easy to have doubts in Jesus when things aren’t going the way that we want them to.
My challenge and prayer for myself as well as the world is that as times seem to be more chaotic and hard, we turn to a God that is passionate, loving, and always forgiving of our sin. God is our constant and he never changes.
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your way submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
