Audrey Ann Huffstutler was born this morning, May 6, 2010, at 4:55 a.m. On the National Day of Prayer, and we have been so thankful for the multitude of prayers that have been going to God for us today. He has been good to us and we are thankful for all He has blessed us with today. And His grace continues to amaze me.
Today Audrey as been very stable, she is on a ventilater, and has had some medicine to help her lungs work better. She has had many tests today and we are still waiting to talk to her doctors about all of those. Some of the test results will not be back until tomorrow, so once again we are waiting and trusting. She is a little fighter and we continue to hope she simply amazes the doctors with these test results.
Over the day I have tried to stay focused on the Promises of God as well as singing songs. One that came to me today was from our Easter Cantata: "Once again I look upon the cross where You died, I'm humbled by Your mercy and I'm broken inside. Once again I thank You, Once again I pour out my life...Thank you for the cross."
My trials seem hard to bear but I am trying to remember that God knows, He suffered, and He cares for me and for my precious Audrey more than I ever could.
Please, LORD, help me to trust You!
