And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:7
I woke up this morning with peace. That peace. The peace that can only come from God because you know that it doesn't make any logical sense for you to be at peace.
And I know this peace has come to me because of prayer - many prayers prayed by many people.
I receive text messages, Facebook messages, emails and phone calls so I know there a lot (hundreds, maybe thousands?) of people praying for this baby and for me and my family.
If this baby is born healthy and whole, it will be the miracle that I am praying for and expecting.
But if we find out she has Down Syndrome then we will love her, protect her and care for her with all we have for as long as we live.
And if we find out that she has Trisomy 18 then we will love her, protect her and care for her with all we have for as long as she lives...whether that's 20 minutes or 2 weeks or 2 years.
Thank you for your prayers. Please continue to pray for our sweet baby girl.
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. - 1 John 5:14-15
