I took Katy to the doctor yesterday because her feet were so bad she couldn’t walk on them any more. Her platelet count has fallen by 70,000 and her white cell count is up. The doctor said, “It appears that something is lurking; I want to see her again and draw more labs on Monday.” This news was difficult. It was hard to take and I am boldly asking God for a miracle. Just the term “something is lurking,” reminded me of a prowling lion “seeking whom he may devour.” So along with our devotions last night I prayed and begged the Lord for a miracle and a delight. You probably know what a God delight is already. It’s one of those unexpected pleasures that loudly proclaims His hand at work. I wanted just a spark of His goodness that would help us through the next few days. So…..
We woke up to clear blue sunny skies and at 9:30 Colin called to say that Jennifer was in labor five days early! He just called again from the hospital and Jenn’s labor is progressing quickly and the doctor has already been called! Now, is that DELIGHT? Sometime today a brand new sweet baby will be entering this world, and right now we are thanking God for His marvelous delights. Katy is able to walk on her feet this morning, and we are all getting ready to drive over to the hospital to wait. How great is His love for us! We’ll update as soon as we can announce the arrival!Comments:
