Sometimes things do not hit me until I read them. Make sense? The other day I was reading about another woman who lost a baby. She said, "We are living every parents' worse nightmare, and we are surviving." Wow, is this what we are doing? Are we living though ever parents' nightmare? I cannot speak for every parent, but it struck me in a whole new way what we are experiencing.
I'm not sure Jason and I are surviving, but we are loving deeper, laughing more with every smile Zach gives us, and cherishing every moment with each other more than ever before. Sometimes I've even a bit "needy." Ha! Hard to admit. I can't help that I don't want to let Jason out of my sight. He is some kind of special to me. Though Satan's attacks are brutal and constant, GOD holds us steady.
I recently heard a song I had to share. It speaks so perfectly of what happened to us with Reese and who we are holding onto. About GOD's answers...His yes AND His no. We received a "No" from GOD to have a long life with Reese on earth as our daughter, but we still have to trust Him just as much as when His answer is "Yes." Easier said than done, I know, but oh, how He is faithful!
I could say so much more, but I'll let you listen to the words. The song is Waiting Room by Jonny Diaz.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving, and thank you thank you for all of your prayers.
He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.
They were glad when it grew calm, and He guided them to their desired haven.
Psalm 107:29 - 30
