Another Anniversary

Today is the first anniversary of the first time I got to hold Finley. For those of you who followed our story closely, you may also recall that this means today is also the one year anniversary of Finley’s repair surgery. After 19 days Finley was finally strong and stable enough for them to operate. Praise God!! I remember everything about this day.

Look at how far we have come.

Finley climbed up the entire flight of stairs today. She has started trying to stand “hands-free” and is getting more confident each day with attempting to cruise around. Before we know it she will be walking!

So amazingly enough – I am not stressed about the cyst situation. I am taking it one step at a time and right now I am just waiting for them to call and schedule the MRCP. We’ll see what that tells us. Everywhere I turn God is reminding me to trust in him and not worry. The sermon on Sunday at church (which was amazing- anyone struggling with fear/worry – you should listen to this message http://www.ajesuschurch.org/topic?id=855&c=1190#855); the Beth Moore book I picked up and felt led to buy “Believing God”; and the whispers from my heart.  It’s going to be ok.

“God does not offer us a way out of the testings of life.He offers us a way through, and that makes all the difference.” –W. T. Purkiser

  1. thanks for sharing…..Finley is doing so well and we are all so happy, as well as, encouraged daily by your story. The sermon sounds great and will listen.

  2. It was so good to hear from you today, to be encouraged by you. I had to check facebook to make sure it was you, since I didn’t realize you had a blog!

    I had no idea what you have been praying through here. Your faith is inspiring to me and it’s good to read of your daughter’s progress. She sounds very healthy and like she’ll be into all the cupboards soon 🙂

    We serve an awesome God and he has great plans for you in this. Beth Moore’s book sounds like a breath of fresh air.
