No news. No new pics. Although he does have a fancy new purple neoprene hat and glasses. He needed some UV therapy today - not a big deal and his number wasn't that high, but just wanted to go ahead and get a jump on it. The newest chest xray showed a bit of improvement. It's that hardest part - the baby steps. I keep wanting to see, well, you know, CHANGE. In an awesome God moment, as my dad, sister, and Jeff were sitting in church this morning, our neonatologist sat down in the next row up. I could have reached out and touched him - wanted to really. To say, hey, I'm here too. Are you asking for the same miracle I am? Do you pray for each of your patients? When I went to the hospital after service, I was talking with his nurse and I asked, "are you a Fellowship family?" She is, they are. I have seen both of her boys go through my hallway/classrooms over the years. Very sweet. So, yes I see God's hand in all of this. But yes, I am already weary. Already. and we could be at this for a while. How weak am I? Not asking for an answer, or for sympathy. Just merely acknowledging what I have learned in my walk.
FAITH=Choosing to live as though the Bible is true regardless of circumstances, emotions, or cultural trends.
