PSALM 13:5-6

"But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, because He has dealt bountifully with me."

Witt is requiring quite a bit more oxygen than his normal baseline. Right now his oxygen is at 1 and 1/2 liter. His baseline just 24 hours ago was 1/2. BUT...I will sing to the Lord, because He has dealt bountifully with me, with Witt, with Melanie, with Austan, with all of us involved! How is Witt's situation an example of God dealing bountiful? WE HAVE WITT!!! We have been blessed so far with almost 8 months of his life. I believe the count is up to four on the number of times Melanie and Austan were told Witt was dying. I can't explain the joy that God brings us through Witt. God faithfully pours His strength and peace into Melanie and Austan. I can't imagine what their emotions must go through but the joy and laughter that still prevail are bountiful! For me, God continues to take blinders off...to reveal more of Himself to me. Things that I used to think brought meaning to life I realize are meaningless. Simply the nearness of God is my good...with this knowledge firmly in my heart whatever steps are next with Witt I know my God will see us through it. I know that my Bountiful God will not just get us through it but we will walk with joy, peace and even silly laughter...to His glory!!! For now we are keeping a close eye on Witt and his oxygen saturation level. The fluid is back and there is no explanation. If there is a change it will probably mean a trip back to ER and Witt being admitted. Whatever is next I proclaim for the world to know: "God has dealt bountifully with us!"
