Today in church the readings and the sermon centered around the story of Abraham and Isaac. You know, where the Lord tells Abraham to sacrifice his son and when he does, the Lord stops him and allows him to sacrifice a ram instead b/c he had proven his complete and total trust in Him. That’s obviously the abbreviated version!
Anyway, it hit home. Grayson is the Lord’s. And God not only has counted the hairs on his head, he also already knows what the outcome of his birthmarks will be. He knows if the one on his head has affected his brain and He knows if and/or when he’ll need laser treatments. And I need to trust in His mercy.
It’s so easy for me to forget that God is in control when situations like this arise and although getting out of the house for church this morning was a struggle, it was so so worth it to be reminded of this.
So I will work on laying my worries at His feet and putting on a brave face when I answer questions about his little face. Like I did this morning when people asked. And we’ll get through this time like we did with Bailey. And I’ll get through this time and come out, hopefully, even more trusting in the Lord.
On a side note, I honestly don’t even know the words to tell you all what your comments have meant to me today. I have smiled and cried and felt so surrounded by love and support. Thank you to all of you that commented. Thank you for the emails too. Like my sister said in her comment, when I started this blog it was to update family with current photos of the kids and I never could have imagined how it would bless my life.
Today is a good day.
