Jeremiah 29:11

I've talked a lot about plans here lately and how I make them and then get discouraged when they don't turn out the way I'd hoped.  
Yet I keep making them again.
God makes the plans.  
Not me.  
When will I learn?
This morning we drove got to MUSC at 6:00 am and turned our beautiful baby girl over to the hands of someone else.
They accepted her with love.
We have faith that they have her best interest at heart and will use every tool they possess to keep her safe and healthy and free of pain.
At this point, we don't know if they can do this.
But they will try.
This is much the same as God did when he entrusted her to me and Matthew.
We are doing what we can as well.
The rest is up to her surgeons.
And God.
I have to admit, I love relinquishing the responsibility.  It helps me stay focused on what I can do, which is to stay calm and love my baby.

Thanks again to all of you for your thoughts and prayers and continued support for us!


  1. I am praying that God grants you the peace that passes all understanding! Babygirl will be well-taken care of at MUSC. What a blessing to be close to one of the best hospitals when you need it.

  2. I'll be thinking about you. Well written post, and you'll be well taken care of at MUSC.

  3. Beautiful post. Prayers go out to you and your family. You have an incredible outlook on life, and you are ministering to people all around you through your strength and courage.


Thanks for joining the conversation!
