I'm learning

I'm learning all sorts of things since Emma has been sick. Are you like me and like to help out when someone is struggling or going through a trial? It's hard to be on the other end of the help. God is teaching me to let go of my pride and receive the blessings so many of our friends and family are pouring on us during this season. Pretty humbling. I think I'm slowly getting the jest of it though.


I'm also learning there is a lot to do for Emma. There is paperwork out the hoo-ha, and things to think about that I didn't even know I needed to think about!


I'm learning that God is using our struggle with Emma's disease to touch more lives than we will ever know, and that He has a plan so much better than ours (thank you, Jason.) I only wish I could understand His plan now so I didn't struggle so much. I guess that means I'm learning to have more patience too!


I'm learning there are so many people in this world doing the best they can for their children who have many different disabilities...we are not alone in this struggle. I can't wait for the day when there is no more pain, no more tears and no more suffering for the sweet children of this world.


I will close with a quote from a very special lady of a very special child who is in the arms of Jesus now. Angie said,
Many of you have asked how I am so strong. The answer is that I am not strong, but my God is, and He is in battle for me. My end of the deal is held up by praising the One who has chosen me to walk this. And I do.


Thank you Jesus! I do too!
Below you can see Emma at physical therapy today. She liked rolling down the mat, and she especially liked snoozing in the big-o bean bag.

  1. Christy,
    I am so envious of the strength that you have to hold it all together and show up to therapy glowing and looking beautiful every time! I am so truly blessed to have been introduced to your family!
    Always praying,
    Ash

  2. Hi there Christy!

    I love this post and know your every word intimately. So good to see you and Ems playing together! Looks like fun, how come they don't make stuff like this for us adults! I could use a good roll down a soft matt away from all this for awhile!

    Hang tight, stay strong! Have you ever read Behind a frowning providence by John J. Murray? If really was wonderful! Check it out....
