Thousand Reasons Thursdays - Journal Entry #20
Well, we're still here & waiting!!! All we're waiting for are some home nurses! So frustrating!!!
As far as you're concerned - you're doing great!! You're trying some solid foods (rice cereal, applesauce, pears, peaches, bananas, green beans, squash, & chicken). So far you like rice cereal if it's mixed with fruit, applesauce & peaches, & green beans. You're getting a tooth too! You've been chewing on everything.
Tom Petty sang, "The waiting is the hardest part..." and that really is true! Looking back, I can now see that God was training me in patience and trusting in HIS timing. But I couldn't see it right in the middle of it all. That is how most of life is - the telltale sign that you are growing spiritually is being able to look back and acknowledge that God was at work during a difficult time.
During this period in time, it seemed like we were never going to get the medical equipment rentals correct, the home nurses scheduled, and keep Paxton healthy enough to go home. When one thing was in place, then there was a problem in another area, and when that was resolved, the other areas had been messed up. But in the middle of it all, here was our little guy, showing us that he was growing and developing in God's perfect timing, and nothing was going to stop him. It brought us encouragement and hope to see him happy and playful.
