Psalms 40:1

Psalms 40:1 says "I waited patiently for the LORD to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry."

Nothing the Lord has us walk through is ever in vain. He is constantly teaching, molding and making us into better people. Not always do we enjoy the walk, but looking back we can rest assured that His plans are perfect.

After 6 long weeks of waiting and praying, we went back to the doctor on Wednesday to do another scan of Aubrey's brain. Our prayer all along was that she would be healed of the cysts and that no abnormality would be present. No matter the results, we knew she was gonna be perfect for us and that we would faithfully walk in His will.

We did the scan and then were brought back into a room to wait for the results. After about 45 minutes of waiting (longest 45 minutes of my life) the doctor returned and proclaimed..."they are gone!"

All glory and honor goes to our faithful God!!! Our precious baby girl is 100% healthy and growing just fine! Her little brain looks normal and the cysts will not return!

Over the last few weeks, I have become convinced that I want nothing more than for Aubrey's little life to be used by God. I want God to take this little girl and do mighty things through her. I hope and pray that God will make Himself known through her and our whole family. Every trial and season...I pray we stand firm and only reflect His light.

Thank you so much for your prayers, thoughts and kind words of encouragement...each one has meant so much to both Christian and myself. Sometimes people think that when others are going through hard times, that their words aren't heard or needed...that couldn't be further from the truth. At times, I clung to the encouragement and words of others...just daily trying to make it through. Never think that you aren't a blessing to someone in times of difficulty.

I can't wait to see our sweet baby girl's face and one day tell her about the miracle that God did in her tiny life.
