Little Did I Know...

Little did I know when I was posting yesterday what the day would hold.
This little one, our newest grandson (who I've yet to meet) entered the hospital.  
Listless, with obvious problems.
There were suspicions of an infection.
The spinal tap came back negative.  We're SO thankful.
He remains on the lowest setting of the ventilator this morning,
and they will begin intravenous (don't think that's spelled right) feeding today
So many prayed and are still praying.
Me?  I confess that I prayed my guts out.  Almost literally.
I offered God myself in this boy's place.
I tried to complete my responsibilities for the day.
Finally, I bathed myself in the Psalms 
and listened to the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir singing
Thou O Lord again and again.
Our daughter reported this morning that he's not "in the clear" yet
but doing much better. 

You who sit down in the High God's presence, 
spend the night in Shaddai's shadow,
   Say this: "God, you're my refuge.
      I trust in you and I'm safe!"
   That's right—he rescues you from hidden traps,
      shields you from deadly hazards.
   His huge outstretched arms protect you—
      under them you're perfectly safe;
      his arms fend off all harm.
   Fear nothing...
Psalm 91


  1. Lifting you all up in prayer, and especially this precious little boy. Keep us informed of his progress.

  2. I am praying right now for this dear sweet little baby boy.
    As I look at his photo and know that his parents and grandparents are worrying and praying, I also pray for you all.
    "Dear Heavenly Father...please wrap your loving arms around this tiny little one. Touch him in a mighty way, dear Lord. I pray for a miraculous and speedy recovery for him...begging and pleading in the name of Jesus Christ that you will restore his health and keep him safe as he continues to grow in You, Lord. Thank you for his loving and praying parents, grandparents, and friends. Thank you for Your amazing love and grace. You are Mighty, Lord and worthy to be praised in all things. I pray this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen."
    I will continue to pray for this dear little one, Rebecca. Please, let us know how he is doing.
    Love you,

    1. Thank you, Jackie. I'll let you know. I appreciate your prayer and concern and long-distance friendship.

  3. poor little guy! i pray that the Lord will strengthen
    his body and sing over him until he is safe at home.

    our firstborn was in a similar situation for 12 days.
    now he is 6' 7'', healthy as an ox and getting
    married in a month.

    "be strong and courageous, for the Lord is mighty
    to save."
