Trusting and Praising God

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!! 29 weeks, 11 to go ~ this pregnancy seems to have flown by! Ever since we learned about the markers found on Landon's ultrasound to indicate complications, we have not stopped praying for God to heal him. My doctor did tell me that the technician was not 100% sure about the 2-cord umbilical vessel, so we decided to pray that she would prove wrong in that. It is something that we determined to trust God in no matter what the outcome. We laid it in His hands and we didn't worry or fret over Landon's health, or the complications that might arise. Last week I had another ultrasound and was informed that the bright spot on his heart had completely disappeared! Not only that, but they were also able to see a normal, 3-cord umbilical vessel this time! Whether the technician got it wrong to begin with or God decided to heal him miraculously, we don't know. But either way, it is a miracle. Lesson learned: trust God IN ALL THINGS no matter what. 

We also have been praising God for our sweet little Bella, as we fondly call Ellie. She is such a joy and a delight to us! She has grown up so much this year and it amazes us to no end the conversations we have with her on a daily basis. She has been loving this summer weather, soaking up the great outdoors. She loves blowing bubbles, drawing with chalk, going for walks in the stroller and swimming in the pool! 

Bless the Lord, oh my soul, all my inmost being - praise His holy name!
