Autumn Shows Us How Beautiful It Is To Let Things Go – Free Fall Chalkboard Printable

If you follow my on Instagram, you may have see me requesting prayers for a health issue. I had a scare last week. We had just moved into our apartment over the weekend, and I thought my water had been leaking, and at 33 weeks I wanted to make sure the baby was safe, so I went in to the doctor’s office to get that checked out.That came back negative, thank goodness… But then they noticed a cut I had and tested me for a very serious infection. Just what I needed, I mean, I am still waiting to get a cancer biopsy after the baby is born, so this new health issue just broke me. I’d been really good at just waiting on the Lord & being content to wait for results, but this new potential issue was something that could make my family sick too, and that just pushed me over the edge. Up until then everything I’ve dealt with has just been in regards to my health, and not my family’s.

While waiting over a week for the culture to come back, I spent my time bleaching everything in sight. Then I went in for another baby appointment and they gave me my results: Negative for infection. Praise the Lord. And an extra happy bonus was that we got to see our baby’s face in a 2D ultrasound that day. He was hiding his face with his little hands. Awww.

This year has been rough. I’m not going to lie. But I have been learning to let go of fear, and replace it with thanksgiving & the confidence that God has me and my family in His Hands.

I don’t want to turn this blog into a place where I share all the yucky things happening in my life. But I do want to be raw & real- not everything is happy go lucky, and I just have to hold onto hope.

If there’s one thing that I am going to take from all my ups and downs this year is that I am never going to take a single day, breath for granted. Good health is a gift & no one is bullet proof. With all that said, I thought this quote was beautiful, and so perfect for this time in my life. I’m sure I’m not the only one who needs this reminder, so I wanted to share it with you all.

With all that said, thank you for every single prayer for me and my family. I am blown away by all the sweet emails, comments & words of encouragement.

    So glad there was no infection and you got to see your sweet boy! I follow you on Instagram and was thinking of you this morning. You’ll be in my prayers!

    Hannah! You have been in my prayers! We recently had a scare about a month ago with a lump that my husband found under his arm. Within the day, he had testing and was questioned about his family history of cancer! That was one of the worst days I have ever had! The tests came back that Chris is cancer-free for which we praise God continuously! This reminds me to not sweat the small stuff and be grateful for each day that we have to love and serve each other. I will be praying for you as you give birth to another sweet child and that your biopsy will come back clear! Rest in God’s peace and trust in His will and healing power! You are not alone! All my love and prayers! ~Dawn
