I love this excerpt from Streams in the Desert: Never look ahead to the changes and challenges of this life in fear. Instead, as they arise look at them with the full assurance that God, whose you are, will deliver you out of them. Hasn’t He kept you safe up to now? So hold His loving hand tightly, and He will lead you safely through all things. And when you cannot stand, He will carry you in His arms.
Do not look ahead to what may happen tomorrow. The same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering or He will give you His unwavering strength that you may bear it. Be at peace, then, and set aside all anxious thoughts and worries. Francis de Sales
What a beautiful reminder!!
Nora did not care too much for the echocardiogram and made sure we all knew that! She tolerated the quick EKG while distracted by a fabulous magic wand and was happy for the rest of the visit.
Here is our stinky little Cupid waiting patiently for the doctor with Daddy.
The echo and EKG did not show any changes and we don’t have to come back until April. Nora looks and sounds great and her belly troubles are not related to anything with her heart, praise God!!!
The weather was nice for about 5 minutes, so Nora and I walked up to the bus stop to wait for the big kids! They were very excited to see us!
Nora is usually asleep while the big kids are getting ready for school, but was wide awake this morning. She just wants to be close to everyone!
Someone else was a little grumpy this morning…
Today was the first day without any stinky diapers!! She did get a little gaggy throughout the day at different intervals but never puked. This has been one of Nora’s best days in quite awhile!
Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 5:20 NIV)
