God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

Anna Grace - January 1

Today I am resting in the bed at the townhouse and Brian is at the hospital with Anna Grace. I talked with Brian and he said that she has been sleeping comfortbly most of the morning. Her nurse said that she is doing well. It is a comfort as a Mommy to know that she is able to rest and appears to not be suffering despite all the tubes coming out of her little body.

Brian stayed with her last night late and didn't get home from the hospital until close to midnight. It is just so hard to leave her each day. We are thankful though that she has such great nurses taking care of her while we are away.

My plans are to try to go to see her for a couple of hours this afternoon. I know I am supposed to rest, but I just have to at least lay eyes on her today. We haven't been able to hold her yet and that is so hard. We are praying that we will be able to hold her for a little while on Monday morning before she goes into surgery.

I am feeling very weary today - physically & emotionally. The Lord tells me:

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. II Corinthians 12:9

I thank you Lord for your Word. I am weak.

Love in Christ,

Be prepared to be really emotional when you hold her for the first time. Blake was 6 days old before we could hold him. He was soaked with the tears Randy and I shed. I am praying for rest and comfort for you. It is so hard to leave your baby at the hospital.
Brian and Tina, Our heavenly Father has prepared you spiritually for this journey. He will NOT leave you! Run to Him and pour your heart out to Him. Only through HIM will you find peace. We are praying for Anna Grace to get the rest she needs for strength for her surgery. The Fosters
