Takeaway Truths:

There is a heavy gravity to all of this. It is not light warfare and it is not all song and dance. Having a terminally ill child is not a walk in the park and I don't want to minimize the grief that goes along with that.

Courage is not the absence of fear, it is just determining that there is something greater at stake.

I want it to be so evident that I am doing all of this in God's power. I do not want to stand at the burning bush and say, "I stutter ..." I want God to use me.

You can't take this as all pain and you can't just take it as a gift; it's both.
