Answered Prayers

"I feel my Saviour's Love...the Love He freely gives me."
Well, I guess I can tell the rest of the world what we've been dealing with around here the last few weeks...now that the scariest part is over. After several weeks of headaches, I had some tests...a brain scan came back that was rather disturbing. We didn't tell the kids until we had something to tell them, if that makes sense. All that Face knew was that mom had a bad headache. I'd find him asleep with his little hands clasped together like this, knowing that the last thing I had heard him say before he dozed off was "Heavenly Father, mom needs to have her headaches go away." How many times did he say that prayer? How many others joined him? I'm not really sure of the exact number, but I want to say thank you. I've had countless emails of love and support from family and friends. Our prayers have been answered in a wonderful way. We do know that something is there, but it is benign. We don't have a definite time frame for when the headaches will go away...but we do know it isn't life threatening. I will be fine. We don't know how long it will take to get there, but we do know it will happen. How do we know, because Jesus Christ is the Great Physician. If anything can be made whole, it can happen through Him. Thank the Lord this day for a prayer that was answered in a way that we wanted...but if not, we would have gone forward. Or in those famous words..."come what may, and love it." God bless this day as a day of Love. The love of God and of all man. I'll wipe the tears out of my eyes and look at this picture of my son praying for me. God's own Son was praying for me too in that Garden long ago...and that has made all the difference.

"Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever."Psalm 107:1 He truly is good. I give thanks to Him for you and all your loved ones and for better and better health.

Amen, God is good. We don't always see WHY things happen, but over the last few years I have become convinced that there always a reason.

I am so glad that you are ok. Thank you for sharing this. I was really touched by what your son did for you and how you related that to our Savior. That is the greatest example of love. I am also of the same faith and appreciate your boldness in sharing your testimony on these pages and tidbits from primary songs etc. :)

Wow, Steph...that's about all I can say. What a powerful picture...and statement. I've felt for a long time that the English language needs a stronger word than "awesome" since that one gets thrown about far too much...but that's awesome news and thank you, Jesus!

Steph! I miss seeing your smile at Zumba. I had no idea you were suffering. We get so focused on our own little worlds and lose touch with people we care about. I'm grateful for your post and that sweet picture. Glad it's benign, too.
