From your head ...
To your feet!

"LORD, you are my God;And in the very next chapter:
I will exalt you and praise your name,
for in perfect faithfulness
you have done wonderful things,
things planned long ago."
"You will keep in perfect peaceWe will head to Luke's cardiologist's on December 16 for a fetal echo. We decided to do the fetal echo before my regular 18-20 week OB ultrasound. We didn't want to experience that "Well, we're not sure, but we think something's wrong with your baby's heart" moment again. So we'll get a good look at the baby's heart first, and then do our regular ultrasound on December 27. And we'll pray that God keeps our minds "steadfast" on His "perfect faithfulness" while we await these appointments.
those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you."
Just a quick note to see how you are doing and to say hi! I live wayyyyyy over here in South Carolina ... get your dad to show you SC on a map!
I'm 42 and have a single ventricle just like you do! We're pretty special, not everybody gets to be a Cardiac Kid! And what's even better, I know a *lot* of grown ups with heart defects - we aren't rare anymore!
But you gotta take care of yourself first - keep your heart strong so it can keep on going! So get outside and play! And drop by my blog any time you want to!
"Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up."
"Near the Sheep Gate in Jerusalem there was a pool, in Hebrew called Bethesda, with five alcoves. Hundreds of sick people — blind, crippled, paralyzed — were in these alcoves. One man had been an invalid there for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him stretched out by the pool and knew how long he had been there, he said, 'Do you want to get well?'
The sick man said, 'Sir, when the water is stirred, I don't have anybody to put me in the pool. By the time I get there, somebody else is already in.'
Jesus said, 'Get up, take your bedroll, start walking.' The man was healed on the spot. He picked up his bedroll and walked off."
