Counting my blessings

I thank God for these little girls every single day.  God has blessed us so greatly.

I have been trying to figure out how to write this post.  I do not know if I can put into words how much someone I do not know has affected me.  Last week, I found a blog (through another blog) of this incredibly amazing family.  Take the time to read the story of Courtney and her amazing little boy Tripp.  I cannot imagine the pain of what they are going through.  Tripp is very sick and Courtney has devoted her life to making his the best it can possibly be.  Tripp is a beautiful gift from God.  I am amazed.  I cannot get this sweet family off of my mind and all I can do is pray for them.  I know that this is the best thing I can do for them and I know that God has put them on my heart for a reason.  I have prayed for this family, wept for this family, and I will continue. 

I do not know understand why such pain exists here on earth, but I do know that God can and is using it to His glory.  I also know that, after reading their story, I have been in constant awe and gratefulness that God has blessed us with two healthy girls.  I have always thanked God for our girls' health, but after reading about this family, I am grateful on a whole new level. 

Please pray for Courtney and Tripp.  I don't think they will ever know the impact they have had on my life.

Don't forget to thank God for your blessing every day!
