22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
23 they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
This picture was taken in 1979 and we had just found out we were going to have a baby. We both were so excited and our family had begun. When we decided we want a baby, we never thought of how the baby would have to deal with things of it's own. Our baby girl grew up to have her own baby girl. The year was 2018 and June 30th was the best day. My husband and I went to the hospital to see her for the first time. We took our granddaughters with us. The joy of holding Averie for the first time and seeing the faces of everyone there.
THE MIRACLE IS IN THE PROCESS ~
Little did we know that in five days (July 5th) my daughter would have a pain in her head and be rushed to the hospital by ambulance. I was standing at the door watching her leave and holding her five day old baby (Averie). Tracy has three step sons that was standing behind me. One asked, "is Tracy going to die"? I only knew to say no, but I didn't know what was going to happen. I was so scared and held back tears.
I thought that was the worst thing ever, but I got a phone call that only made things worse. Tracy was being put into a helicopter and flying her to a specialist. It would be a hard year ahead, but I saw how our family jumped into help and many others too. The miracle of life was sure seen and God was faithful during change. I'll never forget how my son and fi'ance took off of work and help care for Averie. You can really see what family is all about when you need each other.
MIRACLE ~ IS IN THE PROCESS
2019 ~ One year later, we went to Disneyland to celebrate Tracy's life and Averie's life. Her first birthday and the joy that filled my soul to see Tracy there. God heard our prayers and we just celebrated Averie's second birthday. My daughter is doing great and God restores health. It took a lot of prayer and trusting God on hard days too. This day holds thanking God for a new day and his power that heals in the process.
MIRACLE ~ IS IN THE PROCESS
My husband was working in 1985 at a construction site. The tower he was in, would be knocked over by a crane. A 40 plus feet high tower and he would fall to the ground with a co-worker inside of it. Terry would have cracked ribs, broken knee cap and pain throughout his body. We would told the only thing that saved his face, was his hard hat. We began to thank God for life life, but the stress of paying bills, buying food and and a new normal would begin. A year would pass and Terry would try to find a job again. A slow process but the miracle was in the process. God provided for us and we learned new normals. He got a job and yet another new normal would begin. God worked it out for us.
One more miracle was our son. We were told when Chad was about two, he had a swelling disease. I can't remember the name of it. He was swelling up at every joint and would die soon. I began to call people to pray and holding out for a miracle. Suddenly, Chad began to change and became well. The doctor called it a miracle. He said he didn't believe in God until this happen. He said this child should have only gotten worse and died, but he is well. We hold onto this moment of time and know that God can do a sudden miracle too.
2019 ~ September of this year, I would have a heart attack at home. I didn't realize it was a heart attack. It was a strong pressure in my chest that would not ease up. Laying in the hospital bed, I heard the words heart attack and only wanted my family there. I was so nervous and heard the doctor say we will first try a stent. Then, if that doesn't work, we will rush you to San Francisco for heart surgery. So much news while sitting alone in that bed. They would take me up stairs to my room and I would see my family waiting as I entered. I held back tears of joy that they were there. They stayed with me, until that evening. This was also my daughter in law birthday. I felt bad for her to spend it in the hospital. The stint worked and I'm doing good. I see how the miracle was in the process.
If you are holding on for your miracle, hold on. Don't give up because God is a miracle worker whether it's now or in the process. I felt to share stories of hope today and see how my heart is happy today. My prayers continue for everyone who reads my blog, your family and friends. I care and I've seen so many miracles of life. I know God is real, ever present and able. Purpose this a good day!
