Mommy Monday :: Give Praise!

I was planning on doing a post on daylight savings and how we handled it this year and stuff. Then last night I was watching a video that someone posted on Facebook about a baby who was born with a heart problem and had to have open heart surgery at just a couple weeks old and all this crazy stuff and I'm still thinking about it.

As I was seeing the pictures of this tiny baby totally connected and tubes everywhere I couldn't help but cry. That had to be unbelievably hard for the parents and I have heard so many stories of just really hard and sad experiences that break my heart. Then of course I cannot help but think of my own son and what if that was us and I get even more sad. Then where I end is simply praising God. He didn't have to choose to give us a boy who has been perfect and healthy since the beginning, but He did. And I never want to take that for granted. Everyday we live together is a big gift from God and I am so thankful. I don't know what the future holds and it can be scary if I think about it too much. But the sweet thing is that I have a big God who never changes, who loves me and who I can trust. 

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust 
in the name of the Lord our God. 
Psalm 20:7 
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! 
If I would count them, they are more than the sand. 
I awake, and I am still with you.
Psalm 139:17-18

Thank You Lord!
