It was another quiet day for me and Ella.

The weather was a bit cooler today so the Bun and I went for a walk to Super Target. We were not on a specific mission other than to get outside and enjoy the summer weather.

In the early afternoon, we had visitors. Bethany and Ryan, who work in full time ministry at the University of Washington, and are soon to be married, stopped by. It was nice to have a heart-to-heart and pray together.

Ella did have 2 rounds of really bad gas this evening. It required increasing her oxygen and venting her via the g-tube. The first time was so bad that she literally pushed all of her food from the prior feeding out through the tube. She was crying so hard, so I know it must have been painful.

As soon as Josh got home from work, he gave me a 2 hour break this evening. I simply went to run some errands. It was not completely “me” time, but it felt good to get out of the house.

In sharing more of the details of our journey today, I am reminded that we can trust in Him to lead us and guide us. He promises to take care of us. That was the overriding theme of our Gainesville experience and it has not stopped since we have been home.

It does not make the day-to-day experience any less challenging, but the peace can come from knowing that He has a plan and that He will always take care of us.

Psalm 9:9-10
The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed,
a stronghold in times of trouble.

Those who know your name will trust in you,
for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
