THE Month



It is so surreal that this month, THE month, is finally here.

Alex and I have spent the past year with our eye on the prize - August 2012 - which will mark Kate's one year post transplant anniversary.

I cannot believe we are finally here.

It is August.

We've {almost} made it.

Our miracle turns two in 18 days and celebrates her first re-birthday in 30 days.

Wow.

While we remember the horrible days that filled August 2011, we also praise our LORD that he has brought healing upon our sweet Kate. 

I keep coming back to this verse.  It has been so important to me over the years and is so fitting now. 

"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 a hope and a future."
Jeremiah 27:11

HE had plans to prosper Kate.

HE had hope when we did not.

HE had plans for her future.

Our GOD is good!

Let the celebration of life begin!

This month, THE month belongs to my sweet baby girl!

You better believe August is going to be one huge party!
