I'm holding on to Your promises...

Praise God for his gift of music. It has always brought healing for me. Although I still feel like I'm treading water and trying to keep my head above the surface, God's encouragement and love helps me to feel like I can put my feet down on a platform instead of sinking sand when I get tired of swimming.

Whom Shall I Fear By Chris Tomlin

You hear me when I call

You are my morning song
Though darkness fills the night
It cannot hide the light
Whom shall I fear?

You crush the enemy
Underneath my feet
You are my sword and shield
Though trouble linger still
Whom shall I fear?

I know who goes before me
I know who stands behind
The God of angel armies is always by my side
The One who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine
The God of angel armies is always by my side

My strength is in Your name
For You alone can save
You will deliver me
Yours is the victory
Whom shall I fear?
Whom shall I fear?

And nothing formed against me shall stand
You hold the whole world in Your hands
I'm holding on to Your promises
You are faithful

Stella Kate

Our Sweet Stella Kate at 19 Weeks and 2 days

We had to say goodbye to our sweet baby girl on December 27th. I hadn't felt movement in a couple days and went to the doctor on December 26th to check for her heartbeat. They couldn't find one. 

Our hearts had made a place for Stella and now that place is just empty. We miss her terribly. 

We know that she is with our Savior and is warm and safe. But we are not and just want her to be with us. 

We are so thankful for all of the blessings God has given us but we still long for the warmth of our sweet baby girl in our arms.

Stella Kate Reddington was delivered at 8:59 on December 27th. She weighed 1 pound 9 ounces. She was 12 inches long. 

We were able to hold her all day until we left the hospital.

We are so thankful for all the prayers and thoughts from our friends and family. We are so incredibly blessed. 

"Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." He will cover you with his feathers and under his wings you will find refuge." Psalm 91
