Bring the Rain

I had to share this song today. I too follow blogs and care pages. I’ve been following Stella for a while now. She has Spinal Muscular Atrophy (Type I). Her Mother Sarah is such an inspiration to me. We sometimes forget that God uses our lives to not only help our aliening children but He uses us to show people that although what we are going through is really rough we CAN make a difference in MANY lives! As Ava continues to get better her daughter still struggles. I’m learning not feel guilt but yet to celebrate as none of us know what is just around the corner. We MUST praise God where we are in our lives. We MUST ask for Him to send the rain because we know with that Rain comes our ability to be closer to Him. “It is not our circumstances that change our lives it is what we do with those circumstances that determine how we live on!”

If you could say a prayer today for Stella and her entire family I would greatly appreciate it.

Ava is doing fine. Actually she is napping as I type. She hops around as though her life has been without medical issues. I did shed a tear today at the thought that so much good has been happening to her. I praise God for her healing and her ability to be more “normal” everyday.

Thanks for dropping by. My hope is to take our holiday family pictures tonight so keep your eye our for those. Much love to all of you!

Oh Terri!!! Thank you!! You are so sweet . . . and we appreciate your prayers. We know that Stella won't get better like some children but we continue to pray for miracles or for the finalized cure!!! We know if HE wants to do it, HE will. We'll see what His will is for her life. Big hugs and prayers for you all! Ava looks great!!!!

That is always so sad to hear about any little one. I will say a prayer for Stella and her family.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
