A year ago seems so far away in words; in reality, I will be turning my calendar to August in less than a week. I can't look back on this year without thanking the Lord for his provision.
Tomorrow will be 11 months since we loaded up in the car, excited to meet our son. Tomorrow will be 11 months since God chose the perfect plan for our family.
To be honest, I don't know how I feel about August. As I stood at Holden's grave, I felt as though we should be somewhere else in our life by now. But I am slowly realizing we are exactly where we need to be. I am trying to be content in all things.
I think about the thousands of people in Uganda I would not know anything about, had God not called Holden home. I think about the work He has done in Chet and I as a couple, and as possible future parents. I am still humbled by it all when I think about it.
I don't have to ask why anymore. I can be content with His work in our lives.
Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and He will establish your plans. Proverbs 16:3
