I will get to meet...

my newest niece or nephew tomorrow morning.  Ally is having a c-section at 8:00 tomorrow morning.

We're not sure how long Junebug will be here with us on earth.  It could be seconds or minutes.  I'm praising God, though, that He knows.  This is His plan.  Not ours.  We trust Him with all the details.  Yes, we can be sad, disappointed, angry, and heartbroken.  He is too. 

We just rejoice in the fact that He blessed Rob and Ally, and the rest of us with this little miracle in the first place.

Wow, the hearts that have been changed because of Bug.  The people whose spiritual lives have been impacted for the better.  The relationships that have been strengthened.  The outpouring of love for Rob and Ally and a little one.  It's all just amazing. 

And as much as we love those three, God loves them even more.  His love is ultimate. 

...loves like a hurricane, I am the tree.
bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy!

Oh, how He loves us so.
Oh...how He loves us.
How He loves us, oh...

We are blessed enough to get to be there with them.  When I would want to be selfish with my child, they are willing to share God's little miracle with us.  I'm ready to love on my Lovebug.

Your prayers would be appreciated so much tomorrow.  For as much as we trust God, it will be a difficult time for our human hearts.  Pray for peace that we cannot even comprehend to fill that surgery and recovery room.  Pray for a blanket of love to surround them.  Pray for guidance in the decisions that will have to take place by both the doctors and Rob and Ally.  Just pray.

Thank you so very much.

Love you, friends.

Oh my goodness, friend, I read their post with tears streaming down my face. What a journey of learning to trust when things just make no sense at all. My heart aches for you and your family.

BUT...I know our Father in heaven is faithful. I know he will hold you all tight and heal your broken hearts. I will be praying for you tomorrow! With all my heart.

Please update us when you are able to.

Sending you a HUGE hug tonight.
