This week I am thankful for this little miss:
She is our second miracle baby.
She is full of love, laughter, giggles, and smiles.
She gives hugs and kisses freely and loves her baby dolls and Abby Cadabby.
She was born with a rare eye condition that we had never heard of. Our pediatric ophthalmologist warned us that she would need at least 2 surgeries, and glasses by the time she turned 2 years old.
I had a hard time asking people to pray for her to be healed. Wasn’t it enough that I had carried her to term? Wasn’t it enough that she was born healthy?
I felt that the Lord has blessed us enough – after all, how could I ask Him for another miracle?
After struggling – I did. I prayed and asked that my baby girl would be healed. That she would only need one surgery. That she wouldn’t need glasses right now. That she would come out of surgery, wake up and be okay.
I prayed – and yet, somewhere in the bottom of my heart, I still thought I was asking too much.
This little one had surgery on March 15th at 7am.
This little one was home by noon the same day.
This little one is now running, jumping, leaping, climbing, reading, coloring, and drawing.
This little one just had her followup visit with the pediatric ophthalmologist.
This little one is HEALED. She doesn’t need another surgery. She doesn’t need glasses.
Words can not express how thankful I am for this precious little one.
Ask and it shall be given. Seek and you will find. Knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks the door will be opened. ~ Matt. 7:7-8
I sought the Lord, and He answered me, He delivered me from my fears. ~ Psalm 34:4
What are you thankful for today?
