A trial or a faith builder ??? (Pics included)

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon so much is happening!! BALANCE PLEASE emoticon
We have been through a true test of our faith in GOD and He came through!! Our premmie babe, Cyrek, was born 33 days early. He is perfect in every way and weighs almost 7 pounds at 6 days old!

On the 8th, Tif, his mom = my daughter, was rushed to the ER when they thought she may have had a mini stroke(s). It was a test for me to be with the 2 grand babies, and my dear SIL while she was there at the hospital. I couldn't stay with her as there isn't room in the car for 4 adults, and 2 baby seats.

Her husband and the premmie who is breast fed, went on the 2nd ride to the hospital while I stayed home with Ava, the 2 year old. You know how busy a 2 year old is! I didn't have time to fret.

I prayed, and so did many of my family members as well as my SPARK FAMILY! I spoke faith, knowing GOD was in control. I knew no matter what, GOD was in the middle of this trial.
I also stayed in reality and didn't let it sway my faith in GOD. They ran many tests, and sent her home at 6 pm the following night, with a referral to an ophthalmologist. No mini strokes and they also ruled out preeclampsia! PTL! The symptoms had disappeared~~

I was raised not to run to the DR. for every little thing. Tif was also, as she's my daughter. She is very aware of her symptoms and is also studying for a career n the medical field. We've learned to respect each other though we are very different. Our extremes have helped to bring us both into a balance.

I'm at one extreme in belief that GOD heals!! I've learned that DR.s heal, too. I pray Tif sees that GOD heals by using DR.s as well as by faith in HIM.

New lessons I'm learning:

I think Audrey Hepburn says it best:

By choosing GOD's way through His word, the Holy Bible, we are the author of our tomorrows: HE will guide us!

This is one prayer that I prayed while Tif was in the hospital (among many others) that allowed me to sleep peacefully during this trial:

Proverbs 27:17King James Version (KJV)

17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. (and family, too, if we let HIM do His perfect work in us)

    Praying for you and your family, Della! God is the Healer; man sometimes is the vessel He flows His healing through. May your daughter experience total and complete healing in the name of Jesus! It really doesn't matter how God gets it to you, the only thing that matters is that she receives her healing.

  • GLORY-
    Praise the Lord Tif is ok! I didnt know about that.She is so beautiful! The last I
    talked to you was tuesday evening. Then I didnt see you post anything Wednesday... and Yesterday I was busy most of the day but was praying for you. So today I intended to send you mail because you were going for surgery ( yet I doubted it) but since you didnt seem to be around I wasnt waiting any longer to make contact. Praying for all of you! emoticon emoticon

    I really like that quote about 'beautiful eyes (lips,poise)

    So glad that Tiff is OK! Love the photo of her and the 2 kids! She is a gorgeous girl! Yes, I believe that our trials are used by God to draw us closer to Him and increase our faith. He is purifying us and making us ready to meet Him! emoticon

    So very glad to hear that your Tif is all right and that your grandson is growing so well! Good signs.

    HUGS and continued prayers for the both of them. AND for you too. It is a true test of faith when family is ill.
