New Spectacles


Friday, September 8, 2017

Theo failed his eye exam this past month at the pediatrician.  It turns out he has an astigmatism in his left eye.  He now has glasses and we’re patching the good eye a little each day.

As cute as he looks in his glasses, I think Scott and I are a little discouraged.  You would think this would be a small spec compared to all we’ve been through, but, especially after the Lyme’s and now this, we find ourselves asking, “Why Theo, Lord?  Can’t you just leave him alone for a little while?”

Would you please pray that Theo isn’t discouraged by this?  He’s been so resilient thus far, I’m sure it’s because you are praying for him.  If you would also pray against weariness in our parent hearts, that we would continue to rejoice in all the God has done in our family, and that we would trust that God loves Theo and has a great plan for his life, we would be grateful.

Praying for Texas,

and stay safe dear Floridians!

Psalm 139

13 For You made the parts inside me. You put me together inside my mother. 14 I will give thanks to You, for the greatness of the way I was made brings fear. Your works are great and my soul knows it very well. 15 My bones were not hidden from You when I was made in secret and put together with care in the deep part of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw me before I was put together. And all the days of my life were written in Your book before any of them came to be.
