Joshua 1:5 says "No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life: as I was with Moses so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you." I reviewed this verse from the notes from Bro Richard Sego's sermons for my quiet time this morning. I claimed these things as I prayed this morning "I have already won. He is always there. He is powerful so we can be brave and draw courage from Him."
Ethan opened his eyes tonight around 7:20 pm. He looked at Bonnie and me for approximately an hour. He also decided to spit up some of his food he had eaten earlier. We got to help the nurse clean him up and change the bedding and he pitched a fit...then went to sleep for a few minutes and then opened those beautiful eyes back up. Then I watched Bonnie sing to and smile at him. We were so grateful because these simple things that we got to see and help do were familiar to us. Another step closer to home. Thank you Lord!
Bonnie and I stared into Ethan's eyes tonight, and you could see that he was calm. Even with all the tubes in his mouth, he knew the Lord was with him. He knew that Mama and Daddy really needed to see him open his eyes. God gave us a little glimpse into our future tonight. Thank you God.
