A year ago today, November 17, 2017, we learned that something was wrong with our baby Hope and that she wasn’t going to make it. That evening I went home and was in a complete loss. I prayed over and over and over again. Not really for God to “fix” what we were going through – but for him to hold me. I just kept praying, “Please hold me.” “Please guide us through this.” “Please help us understand what we can’t.” Then, two nights later, as I lay in bed holding my baby bump and praying, I heard a whisper that said “I’m here.” It wasn’t my husband and to this day I can only explain it was a voice from above. The next day I quickly created this printable and it’s sat in our kitchen ever since. God is there. He is holding us and guiding us no matter what – and THANK GOD for that.
This print is a reminder that we are never alone. You can grab it for free HERE. It’s 5×7 but will also fit in a 4×6 frame. Frame it, share it as a card with a friend, or just keep it on your desk. If you ever need someone to talk to or someone to listen to your story, I am here. Feel free to DM me on Instagram or email me at AppleSlices4th@gmail.com. Today my husband and I plan on decorating the house with holiday decor, spending time together, and even going on a fun date night tonight. We will honor Hope as much as we possibly can and celebrate all the good things to come. No matter what, never stop believing in the good. Even when (or especially when) it’s hard.
