This morning Forester & I were playing with Slade on my bed and my timex watch alarm, which was on the stairs in the other room, started going off. After a couple seconds Forester asked"what is that noise?". HE HEARD IT! It's a high pitched noise & rather quiet from the other room and he heard it! As you well know I am always praying protection over his ears from permanent hearing loss. I know you are too. We still have four more rounds to go but I really want to give God the glory for His protection over his ears. At the end of these 6 months I want Forester to have perfect hearing. I want to hear people say, "you're so lucky" so I can say "no, we prayed and prayed and God answered"! Let's keep praying! I know there are some of you who read this blog who are not Christians and you think I'm acting a little freaky. You're right, I'm freaky! I have seen and witnessed what God can do. He has proved Himself to be faithful and trustworthy over and over again. Will everything turn out just like I want it? Maybe, and most likely not. Will God take care of us and continue to give us joy and peace in every circumstance regardless of any outcome? YES. Does He desire for us to be healthy and whole? I believe He does. I'm going to keep praying and keep giving Him the glory for every good report that comes my way.
Now for a really human moment....I find myself thinking if I post what I just wrote above will that mean that Forester will lose some hearing? Just so I have to eat my words? Such a dumb way to think but you know how you might say, "that will never happen" and then it happens so you don't want to say "that will never happen". Basically it comes down to some silly superstition, right? I also want this so badly and I want others to see what God can do - if it doesn't happen does that cause someone else to doubt God? Those are my thoughts. But this is the truth. I am not responsible for TRYING to make God look good. He doesn't need my help by any means. So that's why I'm ignoring those silly thoughts and posting this! (Now my non-Christian friends really think I'm crazy!)
Okay, for more happiness here are a few cute videos of Slade waving Bye Bye and giggling at Micah being silly. She'll be 8 months old tomorrow!
