Jeremiah 29:10

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

As I sit here next to Owen in his hospital bed, I am reminded of this verse. It just keeps repeating in my head, over and over.
The Lord knows the plan for our lives. He knows what Owen will be doing 10 years from now. He knows how all of this turns out.

As I sit here, frustrated and feeling alone I am reminded of this verse. God is here, God gives us hope and a future. It may not be the plans we have or the future we think we want but it is there.
I sit here worrying about Owen's life, his future. I sit here and worry about my future and how Heath and I will provide for our children. I worry about how we will take care of Owen and what he will be like as he grows.
"Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will take care of itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34
That verse seems impossible for me to live by at this moment. However, that is what I will strive to do. I will remember that The Lord knows the plans He has for us and that we should not worry about tomorrow.

  1. Not sure if you'll remember me but our sons were quarantine neighbors for a brief time at childrens. We were in room B in the corner, joshua was getting ready to have his reconnection surgery. He was the second oldest baby in the NICU. I found your page through one of my preemie mom's, my online friends. I'm so happy to hear owen got to go home and continues to flourish. He has come such a long way. I know your going through a rough patch from what im reading but he is such a strong guy. You guys will get through.
