I added two new YouTube videos down at the bottom. These two songs are sort of my rocks right now. "Bring the Rain" was a song I first heard back in March driving home from the hospital to spend some time with Taylor and it hit me so hard I almost had to pull over. There has been so much rain in our lives lately and especially this past winter but through it all we all have been so blessed and have been able to find such peace in all that has happened. So, God will bring us rain but he'll get us through it too and this song reminds me that through all of the rain I will continue to praise him for our blessings.
The "My Savior Loves, My Savior Lives" chokes me up every time. "I am not skilled to understand, what God has willed, what God has planned". Yes, I don't understand why all of this has happened to Grady and to us but I know that God has a plan. I was talking to a friend one day and trying to put into words how I feel. I was explaining that I want to have faith that Grady will stay healthy but then if he doesn't what does that mean for my faith? She said, "I don't mean to hurt you but God hasn't promised to keep Grady healthy. He's promised to get you through whatever may come." and those words have stuck with me like glue. I don't understand or know God's plan but I know he loves me and lives in me and that he will get us all through whatever comes.
So, take some time to listen to these two songs and think of Grady and whatever else comes to your mind.

ARGH! From one tear producer to another! I don't know what was harder to watch - Grady going through all that was done to him or seeing you and Ryan often times numb from all that was happening. Talk about growth and maturity - your relationship with each other, with family and with God certainly did grow and mature over the past year. I still would undo all Grady went through if I could but I thank God and give Him the glory for the change in relationships that grew from Grady's illness.
