Thank you, dear ones, for praying for Littlest. Her MRI last Tuesday showed no significant change in the curves of her spine. Surgery can wait! We’ll go back to the doctor in September or October.
While Husband & I were waiting, I strolled aimlessly through the gift shop of Children’s Hospital. As I was leaving a group of children ranging in ages from toddler to teen came into the shop. They were all wearing identical t-shirts which read:
If I had been elsewhere, I might have scratched my head wondering what curve meant. But in the gift shop of a children’s hospital curve has a singular meaning. I approached two of the teenagers in the group and asked them about their t-shirts. With bubbly and enthusiastic responses I learned that Conner, 15, underwent major spine surgery the day before and was recovering upstairs. Her entourage donned the t-shirts as encouragement for their daughter, sister, cousin, and friend. During the course of our conversation, I learned Conner and Littlest share the same surgeon. I met everyone in the group and even got a hug from Conner’s grandmother who promised to pray for Littlest. I believe her.
After the family returned upstairs to Conner’s bedside, Husband and I looked up Luke 13:13.
Then he put his hands on her,
and immediately she straightened up and praised God.
Tears of comfort, hope, and praise flowed from my tired eyes.
Isn’t it just like God to show up like that?
Thank you friends for your prayers. God hears them and He answers them in His perfect timing and way. Sarah still needs surgery, but His timing is perfect. Rest assured when the day comes, we’ll all be wearing Got Curve? t-shirts for Sarah. And, we’d be honored for you to wear one too.
