March 30, 2014 – The weight of this surgery has been almost unbearable in the last week and a half. Some mornings I have struggled to just get out of bed. I’ve been caught up in fear and allowed it to darken my thoughts and cloud my faith. Facing the unknown can be¬†terrible and painful.

But today was different. Today I received the greatest blessing imaginable. Today I felt the prayers of many, many faithful people completely lift my soul and carry me in a way I didn’t comprehend before. It was tangible. An overwhelming feeling of¬†love flooded me as I knew my Heavenly Father heard their prayers and mine. He is mindful of me and my sweet, brave girl. He has a plan and I just need to trust it.

I still don’t know the outcome of the surgery, or what truly lies ahead, but I am calm. Surgery day will come and we will face it as a family knowing that we are not alone.

We are so grateful for your love and prayers.

  1. The ebbs and flows of life’s experiences can be brutal, but you are handling this with such grace. It is obvious that you are allowing the Lord to be a part of your life.


  2. We’re with you too! We fasted today. Hope all goes well. I guess you can’t really know the outcome, but maybe you can find some calm amidst the “storm”. I like the quote that says, “Sometimes the Lord calms the storm. Sometimes he lets the wind blow and calms His child.”
