Thank you for taking the time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and Instagram.

Beauty For the Heart~~ I’m always amazed at how quickly life can change. One day everything is fine, and the next day something unexpected happens.

It’s easy to ask why, why is this happening? The only answer that I know is that we live in a fallen world. There is going to be pain and suffering.

John 16:33 reminds us, I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.

The pain and suffering will not last forever, and I’m so thankful when I go through it that Jesus is with me. I can’t imagine going through it without Him!

Let your beauty shine from the inside out today!

I remember when they told us our first born ( daughter) might weigh 4 lbs when I was induced well she weighed 5 13 and was 5 5oz when we brought her home she had one week in the NICU and I remember crying every time I went in there. But God was good 💕. Love and hugs to you today Cyndi and I’ll be praying for your family and baby Caroline and your daughter.

  7. Hi Cyndi-

    Sending prayers to your family. I know exactly what your daughter is going through. Both my daughters were born prematurely each at 29 weeks and a few days. One was 2 lbs 7 oz and the other was 3 lb 8 oz. They are now 24 and 21, and doing wonderfully! Our NICU staff was a God send to us, and I am sure that the NICU staff taking care of Caroline is top notch too! Pretty soon she will be coming home! God is good, all the time. Blessings- Jolene

  15. Cyndi,
    My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I have 11,year old twin grandchildren who came 10 weeks early at 3 pounds each. After several weeks in the NICU they came home and been going strong ever since. It is not easy but this too shall pass. Stay strong! God is in control 💕

  16. May God’s abundant grace and protection cover little Caroline and your entire family. . Praying for you all.

  17. Cyndi – I’m saying lots of prayers for your tiny granddaughter. What a precious gift brought early!

  18. Thank you for your authentic share. I was a NICU nurse many moons ago. The thing to know is 3 pounders are strong, resilient, and beautiful. They were my favorites! While it is hard to wait for their growth and maturity in feeding and breathing, they amazed me. Now I know how to pray for your family. Plus, having just been recovering from a car accident caused by someone else, I too trust God when I don’t understand.

  19. Prayers being said for your daughter and her family especially for sweet Caroline. I believe there is power in prayer and when many voices are raised God hears them and praises their intent.

  20. Cyndi, I will add your family to my prayer list. NICU is a roller coaster ride, but medical advances have greatly increased the chances of a wonderful outcome. As encouragement, I’ll share with you that our grandson was a 1 lb 14 oz preemie. We have been blessed to watch him grow into a happy, healthy, and bright 7 year old. God is good.

  21. Praying for you, sweet Cyndi. Praying also for your daughter and newest grandchild, Caroline. May the peace that only He can bring surround you and your sweet family.

  22. Congratulations on your new granddaughter!!!!! Many prayers for her to continue to grow and to be home soon!!!! Some friends of ours at church just went thru this same thing with their daughter, and have had 4 grandchildren staying with them for the past month, so prayers for you too!!! LOL NEVER apologize for not being able to get to your emails to answer our questions. You are amazing, and we all appreciate everything you do for us!!! Blessings!!!

  23. Sending many prayers for that sweet baby and your family. Your strong faith will help get you through this difficult time.

  24. Prayers and much love for you and your family! I pray especially for sweet Caroline and Mom and Dad, Colt and Claire. God bless you all!🙏❤

  25. Hey Cyndi, praying for you and all the family. I had twin girls 30 years ago and they were 2 months premature, they were in nicu a month. One weighed 3’7 and the other 4’4. They’ll be 31 this year and both had a baby in 2020. I surely believe Caroline will do great.

  26. I’m praying for your granddaughter and your family. My newest granddaughter was born last month full term but with pulmonary hypertension and a severe infection. When she was flown from the NICU at the delivering hospital to the cardiac NICU at St. Louis Children’s we did not know if she would be able to survive. But God is awesome and NICU’s are amazing and she is now home and thriving! Praying Caroline does as well!

  27. Prayers for your family. My nephew was born 10 weeks early. He is now over 6 feet tall, married and father to two beautiful children. God is good.

  28. My own daughter was a premie weighing in at 3 pounds 8 ounces. This was 40 years ago. The doctors can do wonderous things now. Your sweet Caroline will be in good hands. My own daughter was on a respirator with an NG tube for feeding. I am so thankful she is well and happy at 40 years old.

  29. Awww Cyndi that baby will be so good! So many wonderful medical changes will help Caroline grow into a beautiful happy little girl. My twin girls were 2 months early weight 3lb6oz and 3lb 8 oz. After 5 weeks in the NICU they came home. They were happy beautiful babies who have grown into amazing women with babies of their own. My prayers are coming your way. I can’t wait til you get to hold that precious little one

    1. I’ll be praying for you and your family, Cyndi! I too went through a similar situation so I can relate to much of what your family is going through. My granddaughter was born at 27 weeks weighing only two pounds. She spent 72 days in the NICU. Today she is a perfectly healthy and energetic little toddler who will turn three in September. God is so good!He has great plans for your sweet Caroline. 💝🙏

  30. Cyndi, I will pray for your precious new granddaughter, Caroline and for you and your special family. Your faith and love will help Caroline to thrive and will carry you all through this difficult time.

  31. Cyndi, Praying for Caroline, your daughter, you and your family. The joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10

  32. Oh Cyndi, I’ll be praying for you and Courtney and her family and of course Caroline. If you need to take some time off the blog to attend to family and especially since you have Colt and Claire, you should. You know we all love to hear from you, but you need to do what you need to do for you and your family. My daughters first baby, our first grandchild was born a month and a half early. She went into labor on vacation, 3 hrs. from their house and 5 hours from ours. She was rushed into c-section and we found out when they facetimed us with my daughter holding our sweet new granddaughter. They were told she would be in NICU for at least a month and they were given the Ronald McDonald house to live in for free. Long story short, they were only in the NICU for 2 weeks and she now is going to be 2 yrs. old next month and she is the most healthy, happy, smart little girl. God answered many prayers during that trying time and my daughter and her husband went through a lot, but in the end, they all are bonded so tight and saw how God was with them the whole way. He knew when their daughter was going to be born and he had it under control, just as he does for baby Caroline. I’m glad you shared this with us and I will be praying. Please keep us updated as Courtney allows. I understand totally about their privacy. I’ll be praying for you and Wayne too. You have a lot too and ever since you told what your mom said before she died, I have used that to tell others and my family many, many times. Its soooo true. God can be trusted, even when we don’t understand Him. So happy everyone is okay. Blessings.

  33. Just wanted you to know I’m sending prayers your way for sweet Caroline and your family. It’s always a blessing to have a new baby in the family. Enjoy.

  34. Cyndi – please feel free to take time away from the blog to be fully present for your family. We all would understand. Congratulations on your new granddaughter. May you all feel God’s presence and peace during this time.

  35. Sweet Cyndi! I am lifting up your family in my prayers! Our life experiences are similar…I gave birth to my (now 19 year old) daughter 3 months early back in 2001 as the towers were hit in NYC. She was 2lbs. 2 oz. God was with her -and us- every step of the way giving us that peace of His that surpasses all understanding. She was a healthy girl! I’m telling you this to vive you comfort-and HOPE that all will be well!! God has you all!!

    Now, my sweet Mama is suffering with advanced cancer- breast cancer that is also all throughout her body. They cannot treat/cure it, only treat the symptoms. So our circumstances are similar- but switched around. God’s peace is with me again-and I pray you feel it as well. ❤🙏 Again- you all have my prayers!

  36. What a great round up of nifty car gadgets—thanks!!
    Also, thank you for sharing about your newest grand baby—I will be praying for sweet Caroline and your whole family!

  37. Cyndi, lots of great products for the car, Holding you and your sweet family in our thoughts and prayers Cyndi myself and I’m sure all the people who follow you would understand if you need to take time off from your blog ,again lots and lots of prayers .

  38. I can’t even imagine going through life without Jesus there to help me through. Your mom was right – we don’t understand but as long as we trust Him all is well.

    I’m so glad the doctors were able to save both your daughter and your precious new granddaughter. ❤️
    Praying Caroline will strengthen rapidly and be released to go home soon. Sending prayers your way. 🙏🏻

  39. My thoughts and prayers are with your granddaughter and your family! She is going to thrive and be a healthy baby girl! I was born 72 years ago as a preemie weighing 3 lbs. 6 oz. before NICU had come to be! My parents were told to bring me home because I would get better care there! They hired a nurse to assist them! I graduated high school and college with a teaching degree and taught 39 years in the public schools. God has great plans for your seeet granddaughter!

  40. Cyndi, Prayers for your new granddaughter. My grandson was 9 weeks early and weighed less than 3 pounds. He turns 1 year old this Saturday and is doing great!

  41. Praying now for you daughter , Grandaughter, & you. I agree that if you need to take time off you should. We will still be here for you.

  42. Prayers for little Caroline – and her mama!! 18 years ago, my daughter was born prematurely and weighing only 1 lb 3 oz. God held and nurtured my baby in the NICU for 18 weeks. My grandma always called her our little miracle, because God made her whole and perfect, despite all the things that “could have” gone wrong. God is no respecter of persons. My fervent prayer is that little Caroline will be whole and perfect, just like my Hannah, and she’ll be home very soon. Much love…

  43. Praying for your sweet grandbaby, Caroline, Courtney, you and your family! God is ever so gracious=full of grace and love beyond our comprehension! Ephesians 3:20-says God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all…He is in control-rest in Him! Thank you for sharing! Many prayers for your sweet family!

  44. Oh mercy- will be lifting up your sweet baby girl!
    You are so right on with BFTH. I actually posted something similar just this morning about life being hard. I have recently read some books about Heaven and it encourages me to look at life and the hardships we face from a different perspective. For those who have placed their faith and hope in Jesus, we have so much more to look forward to than what we leave behind. As for the here and now- Nothing is Wasted! He makes ALL things New… and redeems it all! <3


  45. It looks like little Miss Caroline will be a girl with her own mind and agenda. May she continue to grow and bring all of her family more love than ever imagined. Our Lord is good and he has special plans for this little one. God Bless.

  46. Hi Cyndi, I had a little baby boy that weighed 2.5 lbs when he was first born. He went down to 1 lb something while in the NICU. IT WAS CRAZY BUT I never worried or feared the whole time. I could feel Gods peace all over me and He let me know that this baby has a purpose in life and that He has plans for his future. I stood on Gods word. Of course I’m human and the devil would always try and put negative thoughts in my head but I had more faith in what God was telling me than what the devil was trying to put in my head. Today that little baby will soon be a perfect 24 year old (no health problems at all) and he is in love with JESUS and God is using him! I just wanted to encourage you and your family with my story.

  47. Prayers sent ahead and continue. God is in control even when we don’t understand. Hope you all feel your family in Christ lifting you up.

  48. Congratulations too you and your daughter! Very scary to have your little granddaughter come a little early. Prayers for her that she will grow quickly and get to go home.🙏 Thank you for the car ideas. I just ordered three of them for my son for stocking stuffers. Take care

    1. Prayers for your new precious grand baby. We also have a Caroline and she has the sweetest heart..hoping your Caroline comes home soon❤️

  49. Dear Cyndi, this is the very first time I ever write to you.I pray and hope your sweet Baby Caroline shall be all right and grows a perfect healthy beautiful girl like her mother and grandmother.I have prayed for her this morning,and also for Courtney,who is surely having a tough time…This Prayer of the Father is specially for Caroline:’Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy name,Thou will be done,on earth,as it is in heaven,Our daily bread give us today,And forgive our trespasses,as we forgive those who trespass against us,and let us not fall into temptation,for Thyne is the Kingdom,and the Power,and the Glory.Forever and ever.Amen.’Sweet Virgen Mary and Caroline’s Angel guard are by her side,taking care of her.

  50. I’m praying for Caroline and your family. I’m so sorry it was a stressful beginning, but pray that she will grow strong and healthy quickly

  51. Praying for your new granddaughter and your family.

    This was a unique and helpful post and of course, a BFTH we can all use as a reminder. 💕

  52. I’m praying for your grand baby and daughter Cyndi. My triplets were delivered at 29 weeks, the largest at only 3lbs. They are now big, strong teenagers eating me out of house and home. Have faith.

  53. Hi Cyndi,
    Thanks for the post on car accessories. There are a lot of great ideas. Prayers for your new granddaughter and Courtney. Exciting but really frightening. Those nurses and doctors in NICU are amazing! They will take such good care of her.

  54. I hope that it is some comfort to you and your family knowing that we are all praying for your granddaughter, daughter and her husband and you and all of your family. It is wonderful that you live close by each other.

  55. I am praying for you and your family. Your faith is strong. Jesus is with you, as you have said many times. You are strong to not focus on the why and instead lean into the what. What will bring God glory in this situation? What will strengthen me? What is His will? God bless and comfort you.

  56. Hi Cyndi, prayers for strength for your little Caroline and family. All 3 of mine were preemies. It was a scary time but I took one day—even one hour— at a time and clung to my faith. Thinking of you all. Take the time you need. Family first!

  57. Praying for your grand daughter, daughter and her hubby. Lean on the Lord for steadfastness. NICU staff are angels on earth! “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding “
    – Proverbs 3:5-6

  58. Cyndi, our family is in a very similar situation right now. Our daughter-in-law was due with twin girls at the end of September but delivered three months early, June 22. Babies weighing 8-11 pounds is the norm for our family, so the two little babies at 2 pounds was a shock. We, too, cannot see these sweet girls yet, but we are helping watch their 2 young boys. May God give your family strength and encouragement as He is doing for us.

  59. Cyndi, I am praying for Courtney, Caroline, and your whole family. I can only imagine how scary and stressful this is. I know personally of a baby delivered in June at 27 weeks weighing 1 lb. 12 oz. She is doing great. I know these first few months will be difficult for everyone. Prayers will continue.
