THE LITTLE THINGS!

Witt is feeling just fine from his 2 flu shots. I don't think he had any reaction to them at all. It is absolutely beautiful here which is fantastic because Witt is finishing up his birthday pictures. This morning as I was praying I realized I haven't done a great job recently of writing prayer requests for Witt. I fell into the trap of thinking that some just don't seem as important. After all Witt is not in the hospital! God clearly told me that's not the case. He is in control of every detail of our lives and not seeking Him for it certainly doesn't give Him the glory. Today, I ask for prayer for Witt to begin sitting up on his own. As I prayed for this, God reminded me that He is just as much in control of me sitting up...that every morning when I sit up in bed I should be thanking Him for that! You would think that with all God has allowed me to see with Witt that I wouldn't forget how His hand is in everything. How He is in control of absolutely everything but much like the Israelites I forgot! Please, will you join me in praying for the "little" things for Witt too and not just his heart? Would you pray that Witt will continue to do the little things that I take for granted like sitting up? And please pray that in each seemingly little thing that Witt does that God receives the credit that is His...Glory!!!

Today I shout the name of Christ and praise God because
Witt sleeps without the need of oxygen!

There is nothing He cannot do. We only to have to ask and I will be doing just that!

P.S. Thanks for the reminder to always remember the little things He does and not just the big ones.
