He is Listening

This day deserves another update.


I have prayed, whispered, and pleaded these words over my son, “On earth as it is in heaven.”

“Do what is best- just like you do in heaven. And please do it down here, too.”

I asked God if this could be the “we have turned the corner day”.

No one has said it yet, but I think I am watching it.

I think this is the day.

Today Mattie is peeing without a catheter, peeing a lot! Today the swelling is dissipating. Today Mattie was switched from the oscillator to the hospital ventilator. Today his heart rhythms and oxygen saturation were stable. Today he is warm and his color looks better.

Today hope is rising up in my heart.

I WILL see the goodness of The Lord in the land of the living.

He who promised IS FAITHFUL!

And to top it all off, Aiden got to see Mattie today.

That my friends, is a beautiful day. These two are two peas in a pod. Best buds.


Aiden touched and kissed, and spoke kindness and prayed.

God was watching. He was listening.


He is listening to us all.

Pray for stability tonight. Totally healing! Complete restoration of Mattie’s lungs.
