Our lives changed going from a family of four to a family of five. And Fiona's medical issues not only changed our day to day routines, but also our outlook on life. God taught me the importance of trusting Him fully. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding" -Proverbs 3:5. And man, is there a lot I do not understand. I do not understand why He choose this path for our family. But whats important is that He choose it. I know I have been blessed with more then I deserve.
We go into 2011 with anxious hearts. I can see the army charging down the hill, and I stand my ground ready to embrace the impact. The beautiful thing though, is I know I am not standing alone. Next week is going to be very hard, and in seven days, we may walk away from the battle field with a-less-then-hoped-for outcome. I praise God for giving Fiona a condition that she has a real fighting chance, and for every second that he has blessed us with her in our lives. And I trust that in everything, she is in His hands. That is the greatest comfort of all.
Farewell chapter 2010, and so we start a new one. Happy New Year!
