Waiting for results...

So I told myself I wouldn't count down the days till Kiersten's test results came back on whether she has Alper's Disease or not. The doctor first said it would be 21 days, but then he said 21-28 days. I wasn't going to count. That would just make me a nervous wreck. But now I know, it's about the time I should be getting results back, a mama just knows. I don't know which day for sure, but I started getting prepared to get the results last Friday. I decided I would not let my fear, nerves, etc., get the best of me. I was going to spend the weekend with my family celebrating Jesus sacrifice for my life. We had a wonderful Easter weekend. Now that it's about to be Monday, I of course still have a little yucky feeling in the pit of my stomach, but at the same time, I feel at ease, Because He Lives. This has always been one of my most favorite hymns, all year long, not just at Easter time. I didn't hear it in church today, but those sweet words of this hymn were somehow whispered into my ear, Because He Lives.

Because He lives,
I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives,
All fear is gone,
Because I know,
He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
just because He lives.

I love it how a particular song you haven't heard in a while can come into your life at just the right time. Amazing. It can only be the works of God. I feel God is hearing me and I know whatever news I get this week, everything will be okay because He lives!

May God bless you today the way He has blessed me!
