Preparing for Maggie (Part 2)



Wanted to show you some of the beautiful head scarves and bandannas I bought for Maggie. Our pediatrician appt. was great and my doctor was very positive about her current situation. We are sending her file to a specialist at Vanderbilt. I have gotten all of Emily's 24 month clothing down to wash and have purchased them a few cute outfits to match ... I say all that to say "Please Pray For Quick Travel." I keep hearing 5 months before travel and at moments that is more than I can bare.
"Jesus Calling" my daily devotional is fabulous at pointing me in the right direction for the day ... Today is all about "bringing ALL your feelings to Christ, so that your faith can protect you from anxiety, bitterness, etc that wants to take root in our heart." Eph. 6:16. So I am sure I will need all your help to remind me of my SHIELD OF FAITH when I am feeling worry for my precious daughter or impatient with God's timing. He has brought us so far and it looks like He will have to carry us the rest of the way.

God will carry you the rest of the way, but I completely understand your need to care for your child. You are doing such a wonderful job of getting things ready and researching what can be done medically to improve her condition. I can't wait until I see your gotcha day.
I will pray for you Gwen. You are a complete inspiration to me right now. I actually spoke with our SW about the child of promise list after seeing your posts. I never thought that would be something we would consider.

The scarves are beautiful. Praying for God's perfect timing. Do you know how old she was when she suffered her injury? Have you sent her care package yet? What will you send?

I know the wait must be horrible. I think it's easier when there's not a face to go with it. God is faithful. He will see you through. The scarves and Maggie are beautiful.

I will be praying for you and your family. Maggie will be so worth the wait. She will look so cute in her scarves. You must take a family photo with all of you guys wearing them once sweet Maggie is home.

Ashley said...

I can't wait to see pics of Maggie in those pretty scarves. Jesus WILL carry you through ... you just have to trust Him (and yeah, I know it's easier to say that when I'm not in the situation!) Praying for your family as y'all prepare for Maggie and for quick travel!

Jewels of My Heart said...

All of the scarves and bandanas are just beautiful... can't wait to see her in them.
I can't imagine how hard it is right now for you but God is on the throne and He is faithful... I am praying for a quick TA and until then Jesus is holding your little Maggie in His loving arms and taking care of her... This too shall pass and soon she will be in her Mama's arms...
