6 Months Old!

I'm going to have to adjust the date of this posting as it is techicnally already past midnight - but my sweet girl is 6 months old today!  It's hard to believe that it's been that long and in other regards it seems much longer.  The time has not flown though sometimes I do wonder where it has gone.  The haze of the first several months has gone thankfully.

Thank you all so much for your words of encouragment and your prayers when I was feeling so sad the other day.  I can't tell you how much it helps!  I know I'm being carried.  I know I am weak.  I pray that God will use this time to mold me into the person that HE wants me to be.  I understand that my emotions make some uncomfortable, but they are what they are.  I don't need to be "fixed", but know that in time God will do what He wants to with me.  I trust that He will guide me, He will restore me and He will fill my heart with His love and peace.  What more could I ask for?!  (Well, I could probably think of a few things, but in the grand scheme of things this is what matters.)

June 16th - the 16th of each month now has 2 markers on it for me.  The first is Eliana's birthdate.  The second is the date of her open-heart surgery.  It has been two months now.  Her heart is strong and doing great!  Thank you God for this blessing.  A friend of a friend's son went through surgery just a week after Eliana and has had major struggles.  In fact, he just recently went home.  I thank God for the healing He is doing for so many children - people that I'm following who have children facing some of the same struggles as Eliana.

I'll try to post more tomorrow.  As usual it is very late here (2:20am) and I need to head to bed.  We had a really fun evening tonight - well, all but poor Isaiah who fell asleep early and missed out on the fun.  I tried to wake him, but he was worn out.  We'll work on more fun tomorrow.

An early Happy Father's Day to the wonderful men in my life!

With love
