Not Forgetting His Glorious Miracles

Two years ago
we were waiting on her birth...
knowing there would be medical concerns...
early scans had shown an enlarged heart...
her birth proved their theory and surgery was required...
many other issues kept her at the hospital for months to come...
long nights, unending days while her doctors worked to make her better
and prayers were said...

Two weeks ago

I got to go shopping with her...and my sister. His miracles are abundant in her ... I love watching her run, jump and dance!

God has so blessed us with her bright, dancing eyes...she loves to look at EVERYTHING

Many prayers have been and continue being said for her continued strengthening and endurance during her surgeries to come...

God has so blessed us with her unending giggles...and her sweet little words that are beginning to form. She can now say "bye", "cat", "ho ho ho", mama, and daddy

She climbs up on the doctor's exam table and tries to help put on the EKG wires...

she helps remove her blood pressure cuff. Even in the midst of her exams, she smiles at everyone she sees

...many people don't know what all she has been through in these last 24 months, but we do; and HE does

We are so grateful we have her,
grateful for the doctors and nurses, they sustained her...cared for her while in and out of the hospital,

so grateful for family that cares for her, her Mommy and her Daddy,
grateful for modern medicines' miracles and
grateful we know who they are from...He holds her in the palm of His hand!
So each generation should set its hope anew on God,
not forgetting his glorious miracles and obeying his commands.

What a blessing for you all! She is adorable and God's precious child.
Our great grandbaby was sent home on Hospice from the hospital - prayers and miracles - and he is now 3yrs. Just had a kidney transplant and is doing great!
God is good.
Smiles. Ruthie

How beautiful and precious. I can't imagine enduring medical trials with so little a loved one.

I thank God for Grandmother's that cherish such simple pleasures. Bless you!
