21 Days Old – A lion and a Mohawk

imageMy little lion-hearted Charlie received a gift from a very talented nurse last night.  A lion with Charlie’s footprints!  God’s mercy and care is manifested through the love of these nurses, what a beautiful gift.  There are just so many talented ministers of mercy here.  As I hear stories of other babies from their parents, I am overwhelmed by the things these doctors are able to fix to preserve the lives of all these precious souls.  To God be the glory!

We switched rooms again, which is apparently very unusual.  I think it is another way that God is graciously refining me as I am not a huge fan of change.  Learning to embrace “fluidity.”  Grateful for the southern sun shining into our new room!

imageThe other praise is that Charlie’s nurse gave him a bath and a new hair-do.  I think it is a sign of progress when there is time for hair!

1 Corinthians 10:12-13 Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

  1. We’re praying for warrior Charlie and all of you.
    I know the idea of heart surgery can be overwhelming, but we know many kiddos who have had to go through it and it all goes well!
    We’ll be praying for Charlie on the tummy issue as well.
    Right now, our little Daniel is singing, no belting out actually, Tis by Thy Strength the Mountains Stand.
    I know Charlie also heard all of us signing that together at camp, while he was in your tummy Deb!
    Looking forward all of us signing it together again. Soon! 🙂
    Love, Kimberly and the Whims family
