It's a rainy, dreary day today. I've been following a little boy's blog (actually his mom's blog about him).* Baby Stellan is 1 1/2 weeks older than Porter - which is one of the reasons his story touches my heart so much. Stellan was born with a terrible heart illness and has been in the hospital for the past week and a half. Every day is touch and go - one good, one bad, and so on. This and the story of Cora Paige have strengthened my faith in God...as well as SO many other people's faith. Both families are so so strong. One has now given their daughter up to God - the other knows their son might leave this earth at any time. But they still continue to hold onto their faith in Him now more than ever. They are completely comfortable with "God's will be done". Their strength inspires me. We live in a world where we focus on money, things, the fancy homes, fancy cars, blah, blah, blah. I for one see my own children with different eyes now. I hug them tighter, laugh more often, cherish more moments. I don't care if we live paycheck to paycheck, have a small home, or can't afford the newest trends. I have three BEAUTIFUL, HEALTHY children and I know that just like Cora and Stellan, God has a plan for Tucker, Sawyer, and Porter too.
