I remind myself each day to be patient.
I remind myself that healing takes time.
I remind myself that the only way forward is one step at a time.
I remind myself to celebrate the baby steps.
I remind myself to treasure each moment we've been given.
I remind myself that God is in control and has been all along.
I remind myself that nothing on this earth lasts forever.
I remind myself to look at this season, these circumstances, our life right now, through the lens of God's truth, and not focus on the very real challenges we see with our eyes each day.

With that said, our girl showed how strong she really is this past Thursday when we went for a walk outside in this beautiful Houston weather.

Every day that La Petite Belle has energy or feels well for a few hours, we take full advantage of it. She loves to be outside, to feel the sun on her face.

Thank you for continuing to pray for our sweet girl. She is getting stronger each day as we've been outpatient again for almost a week. As you remember us, please pray for complete healing throughout La Petite Belle's gut and an increased appetite so that she can really start to eat and heal. Pray for her nausea to be gone and continued recovery for those kidneys. Also, pray for guidance for Beau and me, as we continue to search for employment.

Despite what doctors may say, I am choosing to believe that God has and will continue to heal La Petite Belle. It may not be as fast as we'd all like it to be, but we will continue to thank God for the healing He's provided.

I remind myself that He is the only One who can heal.
How He does it is up to Him. We just have to trust.

I remind myself that He loves La Petite Belle and wants the best for her.
I remind myself that He loves our family.
I remind myself that His plans for us are always for good.
