ROMANS 12:12

ROMANS 12:12
"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer"

Speaking to Gracie Ann's Doctor this afternoon, she said that since Gracie Ann had such a struggle through the night last night....they did not feel safe moving our little one out of the ICU today.  

If tonight goes better for Gracie Ann....they will discuss moving her into a regular hospital room tomorrow
She started eating again today and our Lord is healing our sweet Gracie Ann slowly....at just her perfect speed.

Dear God.....I just miss her so much!! 

Her feeding and medicine alarms kept going off on my phone and each and every one I heard, tore at my soul!
  My heart has a huge void without her home.
As her mommy, it pains me so greatly to NOT be able to stay right by her side at the hospital.....But because of my transplant, I cannot be in a hospital....and that suffering is a selfish one. 
Missing her so much is a wonderful opportunity to practice trust, moritification, and patience.
 As our sufferings are so valuable to our Lord, every tear that rolls down my cheek is offered up as a prayer 
Thank you so much for storming Heaven for our sweet Gracie Ann.
  Our Lord is listening....as He always does.

I will end with the beautiful Scripture that inspired me to start

ROMANS 12:12
"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer"

Madison just sent this picture of she and Gracie Ann.
This is our oldest baby and our youngest baby
I call them my bookends
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for making me a mommy
