After re-reading some posts from that time in our lives I can truly say with all of my heart that our great and wonderful God carried us through, just like he is carrying us through every day no matter the trial or the joy. That day 4 years ago is no different then today. Our God gave us Melanie a bit early on that day. He also gave us a wonderful hospital with amazing doctors and nurses. He gave me a courageous and godly husband that lead us through one of our most difficult times. He gave us the blessings of friends and family that would help, encourage, and most importantly pray for us. He gave us the physical and mental strength, although some days I felt I could have used a little more, to make it through each day. He sustained our baby girl and grew her into the beautiful, energetic, and funny little peanut she is today.
Reviewing the blog of our life 4 years ago was a really good eye-opener for me. I need to depend on God today just like I did during those days. Thankful for the good days AND thankful for the hard days; knowing that each day is a blessing from Him.
