Carlie's Surgery

Carlie leaves tomorrow for Boston.

Oh. My. Goodness.

I have known this was coming, but now it just seems so real. Like it's actually happening. 

Her surgery is scheduled for Thursday, April 2nd. 

To be honest, I am nervous. 

I don't want her to go. I just want to keep her here in my arms. Forever. But then God showed me this verse,

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may work through me." 2 Corinthians 12:9

In my weakness. He is strong. In my fearfulness. He is brave. In my doubting. He is faithful.

 And no matter what the outcome is, it will be good. It might not make sense. But it will work together for the 'good' of God's plan. 

"And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." Romans 8:28

These next weeks are going to be challenging. But God will walk with us, as we walk down a far too familiar road. The memories from months ago come back. And I remember my time spent in the CICU {Intensive Care Unit}. But I also remember the way Rosie loved. She loved without fear. That is how I want to love. Without the fear of loss. Or heartache. Or pain. Rosie was worth it. And so is Carlie. Her life matters. 

Our family would so very appreciate your prayers. I will {hopefully} be updating on my blog. If we set up a different way to update, I will let y'all know.

Thank you friends. For covering our sweet little girl in prayers. It means so very much to our family.
