22 Have faith in God, Jesus answered. 23 Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, Go, throw yourself into the sea, and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. – Mark 11:22-24
November 28th and I can finally take a breath. Since Mia was born on the 5th, it seems like life has been non-stop appointments, endless discussions, and worry about what the future will hold. The last 3 weeks have felt like 3 months. I always felt like the time moved so fast with Fynn that it’s actually nice to take a breath now and think, “She’s only 3 weeks old.”
I need to remind myself that in the middle of all of this, we just have to enjoy the snuggles, the playtime, and the sweet smell of her little head. There will be time to worry about all of that other stuff later. Today, I’m just going to enjoy being with both of my kids.
We did have good news that I shared with my friends already. Mia’s hearing test turned out fine. As the audiologist said, “There is nothing wrong with this little girl’s hearing.” Also, the cardiologist is very optimistic about her VSD. He just wants to wait and see. It’s not causing her any problems now, and they will monitor it closely to be sure it doesn’t. As he put it, “I have athletes walking around with the same murmur, and we just keep an eye on it.”
I have unabashedly been asking God to throw some mountains into the sea for me this week. Just asking to remove one mountain after another for this little girl. I’m sure there will be many more mountains in the future.
At least today we can sit and be still. After all, she’s still just 3 weeks old.
