I am speaking in particular today about the way I felt this morning when I took Sarah to her exam with Dr. Aaberg, and heard once again that there are STILL NO TUMORS growing in those beautiful eyes of hers. Not one.
Every few months she goes to get an exam, and every time I see Dr. Aaberg's smiling face and thumbs up sign coming toward me as I sit with my coffee in the waiting room, I feel exactly the same way. Totally ELATED! Today happened to be a perfect, sunny day as it was, and I couldn't help but sing praises to God all the way to the car..and all the way home. I do sing quietly though, as to avoid being carried off to the looney bin...
Keep soaring, sweet girl!
On a more serious note, every time we get in the car to go for an exam, I think about what God has done for us, and praise Him for every single day we have had with our precious girl. And then I prepare my heart for the exam, and commit her to him again. Today as I was praying on the way to the appointment, telling Him that once again I trust Him, no matter the outcome of the exam, I felt that familiar peace wash over me. He is always good, friends. Today we rejoice again for the blessing of Sarah's good health. But no matter what God brings into our lives, we can be sure that He loves us, and we just have to rest in Him, knowing that He always, always does or allows what is good for us.
Squeeze your kids a little tighter today, and thank God for them! They are such precious gifts to us!
Praise ye the LORD. Oh give thanks unto the LORD; for He is good: for His mercy endureth forever!!! Psalm 106:1
