He will be our guide

When we got married we picked a verse to go on our wedding invitations that we thought would be a good 'blanket verse' for our marriage.
The one we chose was Psalm 48:14;

"For this God is our God, forever and ever.
He will be our guide even unto death."

There are a lot of great thoughts and promises in that verse.
First and foremost that God is our God forever - He's never gone, He never leaves us. As confusing and hard and hurt as we may be He is still there and He is still God and He is still in control.
Then the promise that He will guide us - through good and through bad the hand of God can be seen. He guides and directs and carries us through, even when we don't understand or know where we are going.
And He does that even unto death. Until the end of our lives. Until we join Him in heaven. He will guide us.

That verse has taken on a whole new and special meaning the last several days. We aren't just dealing with the complications of a high risk pregnancy right now.
On Monday we found out that Paul has been mobilized and the Army is moving him to Georgia December 3. We don't know too many details about it right now so I won't say too much more, but it adds a whole new series of complicated twists as the Army won't move me there too and if I moved on my own I wouldn't be able to live with Paul until his training was over (we think that would be January) so I am thinking of moving back to my parents, but we don't know if the Army health insurance would cover me up there as I can't use the Ontario Health Insurance as I haven't lived there for the past three months.
At the end of this month Paul goes away for a couple of days where he's suppose to find out more and be able to ask questions, so we'll know more then. Until then, we wait. And not so patiently at times!

Again, I'm praying for you for whatever happens. Isn't good that we can trust the Lord, no matter what happens?

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I lost a baby to incompetent cervix that wasn't caught in time. I know you're in the hospital, but be glad if they admit you. You should really be on hospital bedrest if you have an infection and a rescue cerclage. Don't even get up to go to the bathroom! Let them and the Lord take care of you right now. You main job is to grow this baby.

Keep us updated!
