I had staff wives lunch today and we actually listened to 3 sermons this time. It was the sermon series on Habakkuk that Pastor Craig Groeschel did in April. Holly picked this out over a month ago and who would have thought it would be so timely for me. I got so many things from this sermon. The book is about going through a difficult time and not understanding why God is letting it happen but trusting in Him through it all. Habakkuk questions God and even wrestles with God on the issue, but comes to a place where he knows that God is sovereign.
These two verses really spoke to me.
LORD, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, O LORD. Renew them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy. Habakkuk 3:2
Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights. Habakkuk 3:17-19
Both girls had great days today. Adleigh is looking much better. She had an echo today and it showed no infection had gone to her heart. She still has her PDA and it is small to moderate size so they are still just going to watch it. She hasn't had anything grow in her spinal fluid culture, this is such an answer to prayer! She started eating today. She weighs 2 lbs 11 ounces! She is getting to be such a big girl!
Adleigh being so peaceful.
Liana is still on her nasal cannula and doing so well. She moves up to 12 ml of food at 11 tonight. She weighs 2 lbs 1 ounce. She is just straight up chilling. We are going to try and let Wade kangaroo care her tomorrow and that will be the first time he will hold her! I love these two beautiful girls!
