Emmanuel, God with us...He surely is!!!
...He's in the sweet face of a tiny infant named Witt, who sleeps surrounded by scripture that his mom has prayed over him for months…a precious baby that has stolen all of our hearts and caused us to pause and consider our priorities.
...He’s in the smiles of Witt’s parents, Mel and Austan, who may be young but have walked this difficult path HEROICALLY in complete faith with a maturity well beyond their years.
...He's in our gracious friends and family who bring food, come to visit (many from out of town,) keep our kids so we can be at the hospital and on and on…but, He’s also in our friends and family who, although they can’t be with us, continue to pray for us daily...the value of that support is immeasurable.
...He’s in the waiting room of Texas Children’s Hospital...in Witt’s grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who join together in fellowship. He’s in the people we have just met there and had the privilege to pray for…His presence is unmistakable.
Last night, as I was back with Mel and Witt, in awe of the Works of His Hands, I realized a truth…as much as I’d like to think that I go down to the hospital to “be there” for my family, it is I who is being ministered to each and every time I enter those doors! Thank you, Mel and Austan, for sharing your sweet, sweet baby with all of us so that we may more clearly recognize our Emmanuel! I love you guys more than I can ever possibly express!!! ~Cheryl
