6 "do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
So often, when you have a sick kiddo (like Grace) you can feel like you are carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders (how to provide the best care for your child, advocate well for them, protect them, etc) and that is a burden that we weren't created to bear in our own strength. It can be mentally, physically, and spiritually debilitating when you feel responsible for all aspects of your sick kiddos (and your healthy kiddos too for that matter:-) well being, which makes me so grateful for the truth found in Mathew 11:28-30.
28 "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Here's the deal, our praying village... please remind me of these powerful truths when I'm in the hospital and broken because the roller coaster feels like too much to bear. Please also continue to pray us through each step of this journey because we are not above reproach when it comes to feelings of fear and anxiety and we all know that's where the enemy wants us, but we also know that prayer and truth are the best and most powerful tool that we have!
Last weekend we took a mini vacation to La Toretta on Lake Conroe (only about an hour and a half away). Grace stayed with us the first night and then went to my in-laws the second day and night so that we could spend some quality time with Abigail and Andrew. We had a great time! Some of the highlights include, going on this giant slide about a thousand times, the lazy river, and golfing (it was the kids first time doing real golf).
We have had two family outings to the movies with Grace so far and she is a great movie goer so far...
Just for fun, here are a couple sweet and silly pictures of our sweet Gracie Doo...
We love and appreciate each of you!
