I don't know how to express how much we appreciate everything that has been done for us this past week as well as the past 2 months that you all have been praying for our sweet Audrey. Your prayers along with the Grace of God continues to amaze us, and we trust that is what will keep us in the weeks, months, and years to come.
Please remember not to take any day for granted, don't let a day go by without kissing and hugging you precious children or telling your loved ones how much they mean to you. And above all, take every opportunity you can find to share Christ with those God puts in your path. We all have a story, and God gives each of us what we can handle and allows our story to be used for His perfect plan.
I will be continuing to blog and use our story as a ministry to others who may have walked, or will one day walk a similar path as we have. The only think I ask is that you do not send my story to someone who does not know the outcome of their story yet. I said to many people over the past 2 months that I do not know how I will ever get through if this was how my story would unfold, but then I realized that God does not give me the grace I need until the very time I need it. And when it came to the time where we found we did have to go through this, God's grace and peace were there each step of the way, and I know it will be there for as long as I am on this Earth.
Philippians 4:6-7 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
