What a batty week! I realized that I didn't actually give you a quote last week because of all of the hospital drama, so this week I'm giving you two quotes that you'll hopefully love!
The first quote is what I've really adopted as a personal mantra this week. As one who is always planned and who values structure and the known, it is so hard to give up control. But what I've taken away from many of your messages this week through email/texts/comments is that we're on God's plan, not our own. He has a plan and a purpose and it's far better than any plan I can create. After all, this is the same God who created rainbow chard, sunrises and sunsets, weather patterns... oh, and life. Meredith and I have undergone a crazy shift of GO-GO-GO... to wait... wait... ... wait. She welcomes the change of pace, and I'm still having a hard time adapting, but I'm working on the downshift.
Secondly, Meredith and I seriously sat in the hospital room Sunday morning and cried reading everybody's encouraging words. My mom organized a little prayer team, and I've heard from so many of y'all that you've been praying daily. Mere has said every day this week that y'all's and our prayers are being answered. Every morning I wake up expecting to have to take Mere to the hospital, and every day God keeps Cece in her momma's tummy for another day.
And we are grateful.
Not just for God's peace, not just for His timing, but for our friends and family who have lifted up Meredith and Cece in prayer. It's hard for me to explain how grateful we are, but this Winnie the Pooh quote gives you a picture...
I promise to keep you updated, while also continuing my daily blog, as long as you promise to keep reading! :)
Talk to you soon,
Thanks for stopping by! I've updated the blog every single day since 2008 (over 4 years), so be sure to come back tomorrow! Here are some fun and helpful links!
