My New Lip!

But how could they ever get upset with this little face?

I am contemplating very deep things as I lay here in my crib... not just thinking of a plan to get my hands unswaddled so I can suck on my fingers... uh oh I think I just got caught! :)

I am so grateful for all those people who have been praying for me this whole time. When I am too small and too weak to pray, you have lifted me up. You can see how small I am so you must know that I have a very big God. Because little people can only endure big things when God is their strength.

I am about to go into surgery, and I feel pretty brave. My parents tell me that is because so many of God's children are praying for me right now! I know it is going to hurt, but it will be worth it if this temporary struggle makes me (and my parents) look a little bit more like our real Dad in heaven. 

Dad and I are celebrating my four month birthday! I want to grow up to be just like him! Maybe I love him so much because he reminds me of my real Dad in heaven, the One who looks after me day and night, sustains me, and has a big plan for my life. Tomorrow I will get my new lip. I'm not excited about it now, but it will be worth it if with my new lip I'll look a little more like my dad.

You are such a brave boy. You look very handsome in your new pictures, and we know that you were fearfully and wonderfully made. It is an honor to know you, Little Guy.
