Amen, and amen.

I've been praying for Stellan. And I know a lot of you have been, too.

I was touched and convicted by this post today.

an excerpt:

"what brings me great comfort, even now, is that none of this surprises God. The fact that this morning has not gone well, by our earthly hopes and standards, does not mean that God is wringing His hands. This did not come out of the blue for Him. As my friend Ann likes to say, God is not on Plan B. This is still Plan A.

Indeed."

Me too Jenny! I've been following it for a while, and have been getting the updates on Twitter, and her faith is AMAZING and such a rebuke to me. Praying so hard for Stellan and his recovery. Makes me truly thankful and grateful for the healthy son God has given me and to never take that for granted. She's a much stronger woman than I could ever be! I would be a ball of mush, 24/7!!!

I agree with Abby; I think I would be a basket case in her shoes. Just reading that post (and many of the others) made me cry! Reading them makes me hold Josiah a little tighter, and thank God for my 3 healthy little ones. I have realized how much I take that for granted.

I love that quote about how this is not Plan B for God. Something so important for us to remember in every circumstance!!
