It has been a very humbling week. My dear friend Michele has an eleven month old baby girl, Gracie. She was born with an extreme heart condition. She has fought many battles in her 11 months. Last week she was listed on the 'heart transplant' list. Saturday night, her parents received a call that they had a heart for her, an absolute miracle that it happened so quickly. Sunday she had the transplant, only to find out that the heart wasn't good. She is now on life support, awaiting another heart. She can only be on life support for 5-7 days. I can not imagine the daily pain and anguish that Gracie's parents and siblings are going through. I worry about them. They have taught us so many lessons over the last year. They have amazing faith. They have endured MANY trials, but continue to rely on the Lord to guide them. They have shared very intimate details about their sweet baby. They have touched the lives of 100's of people. There are people praying for them all over the world! They have been able to share the gospel through this experience. We love them and pray that the will be sustained during this difficult journey.
Our family has been blessed by sharing this experience with them. We are humbled to know them and humbled to be able to learn from their example. We have been reminded of how fragile life really is, and how our faith can carry us in difficult times.
PRAY FOR GRACIE AND HER FAMILY!!
