I am expecting a Miracle

My daughter is in the second trimester of pregnancy and she started to have an episode with MS. Usually when she has an episode, she goes to her neurologist and he hooks her up to IV with very strong steriods. She has three treatments, one per day, which usually lasts several hours. Well, since she is pregnant and there is no guarentee that the baby will not be affected by the steriods, she is opting out of the treatments. Good choice!!!! She is so totally focused on the baby. I am not going to go through the whole story. But I did want to post this....I AM EXPECTING A MIRACLE. I do believe that this episode will subside with the help of God and that there will be no further episodes for the duration of the pregnancy.
And so, I am thanking the Good Lord in advance for the miracle He is about to grace us with.

Thank you, Lord.

A Big View of God

Was doing my readings today from a book that Max Lucado wrote called "Grace...for the moment". He has taken small parts of the many books that he wrote and compiled this book with a reading a day. I want to share it with you.

Exactly what is worship? I like King David's definition. "Oh magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together" (Ps. 34:3 NASB). Worship is the act of magnifying God. Enlarging our vision of him. Stepping into the cockpit to see where he sits and observe how he works. Of course, his size doesn't change, but our perception of him does. As we draw nearer, he seems larger. Isn't that what we need? A big view of God? Don't we have big problems, big worries, big questions? Of course we do. Hence we need a big view of God.

Worship offers that. How can we sing, "Holy, Holy, Holy" and not have our vision expanded?

I got up this morning, jumped in the shower, poured myself a cup of coffee and sat out on the patio with Bob. The sun was shining and the birds were singing. We both agreed that it felt as though we were on vacation, sitting there relaxing with each other looking at the beautiful flowers in our garden.
