Day 89 – Ten More Days

Ten more days. Is that even possible? Time flies when you’re… waiting? The calamitous waves off in the now very short distance are still threatening to look at. I only issue quick glances, hoping that maybe they’ve disappeared; this was all just a bad dream. It never happens. It’s all just as real as it was 89 days ago, yet my perspective is graciously and generously enriched with trust and peace. A very powerful fear tries to gain access to me. Sometimes it almost does. I am quick to remind it that, “I trust in Jesus. Go away.” There is great power in saying that because the fear and anxiety always retreats. I might have to say it a few times, but fear has NO power over my God.

My beautiful little angel is tucked safely away in her cocoon. I feel her sweet flutters and marvel at her strength. A baby who is supposed to be so feeble and “incompatible with life” seems to be telling a different story.

“Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.”  (Revelation 2:10)

  1. Beautiful words, and as always, I marval at your undying faith in God! I am honored to have such a special woman in my life! XO!

  2. Your strength is hardly believable! Ten days. Wow. Although so much is unknown right now, one thing for sure that you do know is that God will never let you go, He is and will be with you.

  3. To the Yusko Family-
    You, your family and your sweet baby Nora have touched my heart. Our paths are unknown, so we rely on the strength that the LORD gives us (known or unknown)- I thought I would share the following with you: Isaiah 41:10  fear not, for I am with you;  be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you,  I will uphold you with my righteous right hand- Your journey is unknown but let the strength in the LORD, your family and your own guide you to peace (wherever that may be). Thank you for sharing your journey and letting us be a part if your lives!

  4. Aleisa and William,
    We continue to pray for you and for little Nora. She and you have touched so many, given so much.

    Lord please continue to be with this family and hold them close. Give them the peace and understanding only you can provide. You’ve given Nora the strength this far, grant her the strength to see her awesome parents here on earth. Give them all time. Give them a miracle.

  5. On a beautiful summer day, the Yusko family plays in the sand on a Michigan shore line. Squeels of laughter are heard as Gavin and William skip the rocks. Aleisa’s beautiful hair blows in the wind as she snaps a picture. She smiles adjusting Greta’s bow and bends down to kiss her. What more could anyone ask for? We ask God to bless you with Nora Rose and let her experience the simple joys of life with you.
    Love , Jenny and Greg

  6. Aleisa, your sharing this story in such an eloquent and open way has renewed my faith in God. You are unbelievably strong woman and I will be praying for you, Nora and your entire family these next few weeks. Thank you for sharing.
