Wow. Nearly two weeks. May 20: at 10pm Naomi is in intensive care… non-responsive. June 2: This morning she is sleepy, but will focus on us when we talk to her. Sometimes watching the tv. Alice in Wonderland. “I sometimes believe in 6 impossible things before breakfast” … me too.
Naomi is on a c-pap breathing mask now, and they dialed it down a little during the night. She is breathing on her own, better with each new day. The news today: We expect her to be out of ICU very shortly. Perhaps one more week. She is going to be OK. I can’t tell you how many times my wife and I have declared that over her in the past two weeks. We are now starting to glimpse the direction we are pointing in, now that we have stopped spinning so. Work does lay ahead, but we will accomplish that work. Make no doubt. I am broken by God’s favor, and the tears of thankfulness fall freely. God chose our Naomi to bring Hope. Peace. Realization. Faith. … Life to the part of the world that would know her story. There are now churches on 6 continents (that I know of) that are praying for Naomi. That are witness to the miracle. From China, to Africa, to Abu Dhabi in the Middle East. Australia. Europe. USA. South America. This is important to the world. God chose Naomi to bring some Peace. Some Hope. Faith. Jesus held my baby in His arms, and breathed new life into her… and me. And my family. You are the church. Witness this Miracle. There is no other way to describe it. Call a rose a rose, a fish a fish and Naomi’s breathing today a miracle.
Witness Mercy. Witness God’s wonders. Witness this miracle.
