Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Just breathe....

I am learning when God carries us, He allows us to catch our breath, to rest with Him. One word that comes to mind that carried us through those first crazy days is "breathe". Our pastor texted us that exact word several times, and I learned when I did breathe and focused on God, I found peace. Amos and I have often said that the strength we both have felt that last few weeks just doesn't make sense. Believe me, we both still have our moments, me probably more than my amazing husband. However,
every. single. prayer. is being felt. So more than words could ever say, thank you. Thank you for your prayers, calls, meals, texts, cards, cleaning our house, mowing our yard, help with Anastacia, the list seems to go on and on. We read every note, email, card and feel amazing peace.

Amos and I just returned from a business trip in Atlanta. I am continually amazed to see how God continues to reveal His perfect timing for us. We are so blessed to be part of such an incredible company that God has had His hand on, and we have so many wonderful friends and mentors through. I was able to spend some time with a dear friend over the weekend. She has been an amazing mentor to me in so many ways over the years, spiritually, as a mother, a leader and wife. And she has been through more than her share of trials and challenges. The truth she spoke to me was exactly what I needed to hear at the right moment. This is tough, sucks, will change us forever, and will take time to heal from, but we will make it through it. So thank you for the reminder that we will make it, and to continue to lean on Him daily!

One quick request. We have a doctor appointment and ultrasound Wednesday afternoon. If you could please pray for peace that surpasses all understanding, strength, and the miracle of healing for our precious little boy we would appreciate it. We love you all!
