34 weeks - Isaiah 43:1-4

 1 But now, this is what the LORD says—
   he who created you, Jacob,
   he who formed you, Israel:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
   I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters,
   I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
   they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
   you will not be burned;
   the flames will not set you ablaze.
3 For I am the LORD your God,
   the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
I give Egypt for your ransom,
   Cush and Seba in your stead.
4 Since you are precious and honored in my sight,
   and because I love you...

So many things changed 
after we found out about Amelia's condition
for me this verse became a reality 
not just some old text from the Bible 
in which God speaks to an unfaithful Israel.
It is text written in love for me.
God breathed scripture 
meant for me to discover
to unravel
to cherish.
These are more than words,
they are God's promise
to each of us.

Do not fear.
I will be with you.
I love you.
You are mine.
