Waiting is the hardest part...having such a peace in my heart for something so wonderful as us releasing our son into the arms of the Creator of the entire Universe, makes waiting the hardest part. I want to spend every second with him, I don't want to close my eyes and sleep, but the peace that we know, that deep stillness that is in the natural, unfathomable, also makes me wonder why we have to wait to offer our gift without blemish...It's like when you find a gift for someone and it brings joy to your heart knowing it's perfect for that person, you can't wait to give it to them...We are grateful for the week, but the hope is overwhelming! I am the richest woman in the entire world! It may be boastful, but, seriously, to be given the opportunity in modern day to literally and legally lay our child at the feet of God, that is the MIRACLE! Noah's beautiful 7 month life here on this earth IS the miracle. My heart transformation, Jason's, maybe yours...No matter what, no matter where, God gets ALL the glory! You see, what may bother some that the doctors never have diagnosed Noah, it adds to my peace...NO ONE CAN LABEL OUR SON! We are so very grateful that the ONLY reason for death is that Noah was given as a gift to the Most High God! Science wants to wrap its brain around a specific diagnosis, but when one lives up to one's name, "Noah-Peace-Shalom-Nothing Missing, Nothing Broken", then no test can define him, no category can label him, he is called by his name. The death certificate can't say something specific. Unless you want to get technical, then fill in the blanks with "Earth sucks. He got a glimpse of Perfection so Noah went home to be with Jesus." So sorry, devil (fyi, he's unworthy of upper case emphasis!), but obviously you are quite dense because you try this daily all over the world. You try to cause hearts to harden toward God, try to distract and discourage. You messed with the wrong family...We'll only shout it louder, love harder, tell even more people about the amazing unconditional love of God, the saving grace of Jesus Christ and the Peace that passes all understanding. Noah is God's alone and the devil does not get one bit of the glory. God knew our hearts, just as He knew Job's...Friday will be a glorious day!
