And now let the weak say, “I am strong.” Let the poor say, “I am rich.” Because of what the Lord has given for us. Give thanks.
As much as I’d like to think I am the one in control of making Emily’s life beautiful, I’m not.
Let me back up a minute here and explain what I’m talking about.
Since Emily was born, and since receiving her diagnosis three years ago, and also learning that our sweet little girl may not lead a “normal” life [as we know it]….. it has been a passion of mine to make her life beautiful. But it’s more than that.
The truth is, I am not the one in control of making Emily’s life beautiful. God is.
He sent her to us, knowing that she wouldn’t live a so-called “normal” life. He sent her to us knowing that she would need to be taken care of her entire life. He sent her to us knowing she would be a happy little girl despite all of her challenges and for that I thank Him.
We will always continue to make life beautiful for our precious little girl, but we also know in our hearts that we aren’t the ones in control.
Thank you Lord, for her beautiful life.
