Ben and I dedicated Grayson at church today. It was such a wonderful experience and it just makes me remember what a blessed life we (all) have. As you know, things have been tough with Grayson's eating and sleeping issues lately, and it is so easy to get caught up in all the negative parts of life and lose focus of the big picture: our loving God is in control. My sweet sister-in-law, Holly, gave me a gift that included the following bible verse which is a beautiful reminder that even though waiting is tough, the Lord IS working his good in our lives:
Be brave and courageous.
Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.
Another verse that has been the theme of our day and which Ben and I are declaring to do is:
and when he is old he will not depart from it.
