“Know you what it is to be a child? It is something very different from the man of today. It is to have spirit yet streaming from the waters of baptism; it is to believe in love; to believe in loveliness; to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear; it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, for each child has a fairy godmother in its soul.”
Has got me pondering this:
At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, " Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 18 : 1-4
Daddy is home, safe and sound. I guess he lost 30 lbs while he was in the Middle East. He said the water there, is too hot to drink. Can you imagine?!
More good news, they aren’t going to make him go back. He will be re-assigned somewhere close to home!
The Daddy and Mommy asked us all to pray that baby boy’s appetite will come back. They are so encouraged by and thankful for the literally thousands of people that don’t even know them and yet are praying for and concerned about them. That’s you. Thank you.
- God is so very good!
- And I am not surprised.
- Daddy will be holding his little son in his strong arms very soon. He is coming home tonight! That is nothing short of a miracle!
- Mommy told us that she is being carried by the Grace of God, says she has been given overwhleming strength and peace in the middle of all this fear and turmoil.
- The tests have come back and the doctors think that the intense glucose flucuations may be caused by a gland in baby boy’s brain, that controls both his blood sugar level and growth hormones. They say he will have to be on medication for the rest of his life, unless of course God heals him, which is what we are all hoping and praying for. His life is still in danger. I guess they say he is by no means out of the woods. It still remains to be seen how the wee guy reacts to the medication in the long run. The other possible tragedy in all this would be if his growth hormones aren’t working properly he may never develop. All of this is still undetermined and in the most tender hands of our Heavenly Father, who has only the lovingest things in mind for this precious little family. He sees the big picture and as hard as it is sometimes, we just have to trust Him with that.
- Please keep this dear wee boy and his Mommy and Daddy in your prayers. They will be together once again so soon. I can’t begin to imagine…the relief, the joy, the pain, the comfort of having each other again, the decisions that will have to be made…
