EDIT: (Sat. 2:40 pm)
Got Nystatin for Nina from doc at urgent care. Two doses last night. Tongue still looked nasty this morning. Another dose. Just now, went to give her some more. Her entire mouth is clear. My entire mouth is hanging open. Not saying it won’t come back or anything, but oh my. Thank you, Lord.
Hate to be heavy on a Friday afternoon, but God has laid a few precious kids/families on my heart today. Please take a moment and ask God to comfort these sweet friends.
–a beautiful 5-year-old boy with Downs syndrome who just started kindergarten. His big sister, who used to love school, comes home crying because people (even a teacher) are making fun of her little brother. Does she want him to go to a different school, her parents asked. “No, I love him.” Pray for his mommy and daddy too. He was created in God’s image.
–a gorgeous 7-year-old girl who was born with disfigured fingers and a syndrome that affects one side of her face and smile. She starts 2nd grade in a new school this week, and it is always hard when new kids ask questions or stare or even become cruel. Her mommy and daddy wish they could be with her everywhere she goes and fight her battles for her, but they can’t. Help them to trust God. He made her exactly how He wants her. She is perfect.
–a sweet 9-month-old boy who began crying for no reason at all. Crying in lots of pain. His loving parents took him to the hospital. His leg is broken. No idea how it happened. The parents are being charged with child abuse, cannot be alone with their 2 children, are crushed, heartbroken, disbelieving. What would I do if this happened to me? It could happen to any of us… Pray hard for them. God is in control, even when it seems just the opposite.
Thank you, friends.
