Journaling thoughts before we know our baby's diagnosis

January 17, 2014
I am numb. There seems to be a lot of silence around me. My thoughts have been hijacked. Either I'm thinking about the fact that we will be witnessing our second child die in 20 weeks, or I'm just blank...a white flag flapping in the breeze.

We have incredible peace right now. I know this peace comes from us asking God to take this burden from us. The Bible tells us to lay our troubles down at the foot of the cross. No pain and fear we feel can be as intense and horrifying as what Christ accepted on our behalf. Because we believe this we have courage to face today.
