On Christmas Eve twin brothers were delivered prematurely. Their young Mom, husband and grandparents are asking for prayers. One is in need of heart surgery along with another complication. Both boys need to gain weight as their set arrival was to be in mid January…
Their Mom as a teenager played along my sons with her brother. I remember her vim and vigor and giggles. She grew up to attain degrees in nursing and then in Elementary education. Math sparks her inspiration. Her talents abound as she swims and runs marathons… That is hoe she met her devoted young husband, an engineer.
What could go wrong? Why do unfortunate things happen to good people? Was their good luck just too good? Who would have thought that amid all the good fortune even twins were forecast to bless their families? As friends, we celebrated their delight and wished them continued happiness.
The turn of events is now being held in balance with two young lives waiting to begin their lives with Mom and Dad.
Today they are at the Children’s Hospital in Denver, Colorado. In the valley together they await with faith, hope, and trust.
The candle holder was a gift to me years ago when I too was in a hospital in Denver, Colorado. Each tea light lit held the flame of my heart in prayer to God for a myriad of needs. I lit them in devotion asking for strength, wisdom, and perseverance…
Today I ask for a prayer from you aligned with any unspoken of your own.
In Jeremiah 33 :3, we are given the promise of restoration: ” Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”… The words apply to to the text yet they can be transferable to us as guideposts.
Give thanks to the Lord Almighty,
for the Lord is good;
his love endures forever.”
__Jeremiah 33: 11
I pray for a Happy New Year… I trust heaven’s door to be our eternal blessing… I pray we can will to be holy.
