I have been experiencing more peace over the past day and a half as the Lord continues to work on my heart.. big time (again, I had to learn the same lesson with Grace), drawing me to a place where I can leave my (His) boy on the alter before the Lord (figuratively speaking, meaning I surrender Andrew to whatever God says is best) and trust that God's will is better than mine (even if it's not at all what I want). What that DOES NOT mean is that we give up a bit of hope, stop continually asking/begging the Lord to heal Andrew, giving him a long, healthy life, or we don't fight for his life with all that we have (in God's strength of course)! The elephant that has been sitting on my chest for the past week has morphed into more of a gorilla which is a huge improvement. Isaiah 40:31- Those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
I don't like posts with a lot of words and no pictures, so in case you are like me...
Just a couple warriors snuggling in the morning!
I can't leave out this little warrior who is fierce in all she does, especially if that means standing up for her siblings. On Friday night, there was boy who was bullying Andrew, physically knocking him down on purpose, while they were playing a game. Abigail sprung into action, telling him he better not touch her brother again, to which he got up on his tippy toes to make himself even taller than her while glaring at her in an attempt to be intimidating. I asked her if she was scared and she laughed and said "no!" I thought to myself, that poor boy had no idea what type of little ninja he was dealing with. Mama Bear might have also made an appearance (a God-honoring one) to make sure there wouldn't be any more of that shenanigans ;-)
