Two Options

It's been one hundred days since our Hannah was born. Today we celebrate our girl and so much more. Oh how the Lord chooses to bless us in ways we could have never imagined. Every day the Lord has been with us, and every day he will be. This post is just simply posted in order, but it seems so appropriate for today. I thank our Lord daily for our Hannah.

As I read today I thought about how I’ve wondered why the Lord didn’t save our Hannah, why she didn’t get to live.

And I thought about how we think those are the two options: she could live and she could die and 'God let her die.' But that’s not the only other option. He could have never given her to us. What if the two options instead were: have us get pregnant or have us not get pregnant. And then the perspective changes, and then we thank him. We could have been trying for months to get pregnant with no success and then we would cry out ‘Lord where are you?’

But instead he gave us sweet Hannah Grace. Yes, her life was short, but oh we are blessed. How do we so quickly blame the Lord for the bad without thanking him for the good?

Oh, Lord thank you for our sweet girl Hannah Grace. We are truly blessed.
