another inspiring momma

one of my best friends from high school, found out recently that the life she is carrying inside her will not live for long after delivery. the condition is called anencephaly. just typing these words brings tears to my eyes again. my heart is so heavy for my friend. after reading One Thousand Gifts a while back i try my best to look at all situations knowing that God is in complete control of them and will use EVERY situation to bring glory to himself if we allow that to happen. my friend Leah and her husband ARE allowing that to happen. already, they have ministered to my own heart and i know they will be touching many more with their story. a story of grace, and love and peace that only our heavenly father can give. it is something that just blows my mind. please read her blog. she is an amazing writer, so honest and also funny. please also keep her and her family in your prayers during this time.

thankful for:
friends that have a strength from the lord that ministers to my own heart
the GOOD i KNOW he will bring from leah and onans story
it warming back up just a hair
garrets teacher continuing to be such a blessing to us

Oh Bonnie, I know Leah through you! I'm so sorry that they are enduring this, but I agree that God has given her a peace and comfort that can only be explained through His strength. I'm praying for them as well!
