Praising, yet again....

Today was a big day.
Today we took Noah to a pediatric cardiologist.
This momma's heart has ached for him... his present.... his future.
Today our little boy, Noah Wyles, was okay.

Never having had to go through a medical issue with one of our children has been an incredible blessing--a blessing that we didn't recognize. At Noah's last well-check a heart murmur was detected. My heart sank as irrational thoughts overcame me. What if he has to have major heart surgery?  What if we lose him? Lord, I can't do this....

The last few months I've struggled to grasp more fully the sovereignty of God. We've been surrounded with much sadness and have felt deeply the hurt and pain of others. Noah's heart murmur hit at a vulnerable time for me. 

This morning the cardiologist clarified that Noah has a functional heart murmur. He should grow out of it. He'll need to listen again in a year or so. This was the best case scenario. Praise God!

Today, I'm thinking and lifting up those families who don't have clarity. Those who haven't been told the "best case scenario." I can't begin to imagine or understand your pain and ache. May God continue to bring hope and joy through the small things and victories in your life. May He continue to speak deeply into each of us as we step forward to trust our Maker.

"For the LORD is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless." Psalm 84:11
