so much is happening!! BALANCE PLEASE
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)
