Rejoice not over me

I don't even know where to begin.

"Rejoice not over me, O my enemy;
when I fall, I shall rise;
when I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me.

Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of His inheritance? He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in steadfast love. He will again have compassion on us; He will tread our iniquities under foot. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea. You will show faithfulness to Jacob and steadfast love to Abraham, as You have sworn to our fathers from the days of old." --Micah 7:8, 18-20

There is so much - so much - going on right now. One thing at a time, though, right? Specifically in the next two weeks, I will be facing one of my greatest challenges as a mother. It is something that has been looming for over a year now. I am both dreading and welcoming it. Please pray for me, that I will have peace, comfort and strength. Pray that I will be bold and unswerving in protecting my daughter, yet also humble. Pray for Olivia, that she will sense only the love I have for her, the love our Father has for her, and the love my family has for her. Pray for logistics, pray for expediancy.

And pray that, in two weeks, this will all be behind us, and I can breathe.
