A Smiling Heart :)

Well, yesterday I was hoping I would come back from Bragg and have answers for what was next for Cale and I. There's just so much unknown, it would be nice to have some kind of idea. Nothing was settled and I kind of think I feel even more like there's more unknown then I knew! That's okay though :)

So far today Cale is doing good. He hasn't made any noise really this week. I'm not a fan of that...he did let me cuddle a little more last night. It was SO good! His eye is still red, even with the patch on the last few days. Hopefully that will clear up soon. When they walked with him today, his left leg is doing okay when they have the brace but for the most part it's still bothering him a lot.

I was reading in Jeremiah, and there's a well known verse that through middle school and up was my theme verse. "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." I've continued to claim this verse through all of this, but the other day when I was reading, I didn't just read that verse, I read before and after. I felt so much hope as I was reading, still no answers...like the verse that says "Cale will have a full recovery, and you will both live happily ever after." but as I read my heart seemed to smile :) I read it to Cale too so his heart could smile with mine.
This is what the Lord says: “You will be in Babylon for seventy years. But then I will come and do for you all the good things I have promised, and I will bring you home again. For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you,” says the Lord. “I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes. I will gather you out of the nations where I sent you and will bring you home again to your own land.”
I think the biggest encouragement for me was verses 12 and 13 when He says, when I pray He will hear me and and that if I look for Him, I will find Him! Yeah!

Here comes the weekend! :)
