I can’t believe it. Where did the time go? It seems just yesterday she was the life of the party here in this house. Now she lives in a land far far away. Reflecting back on the last twenty-one years, I am so thankful for Courtney. Not only was she a joy to raise, but I learned about God through her.
After I battled infertility for years, God blessed me with her, a precious baby.
I learned that God still performs miracles!
When she had 105 fever and we sat in the hospital for a week with an unconfirmed diagnosis.
I learned that God is a Sustainer and will see us through!
When she said, “Mom, I don’t need to wear these glasses anymore because I prayed and asked God to heal my eyes and He did.”
I learned that God is the Great Physician.
When she was diagnosed with osteochondrosis and couldn’t move her arm the whole church and community prayed.
I learned that God is the Healer that leaves doctors perplexed.
When she graduated and moved off, my prayers took on a whole new meaning.
I learned that God is in control, not this mom.
After she was hit head-on by a drunk driver, I marveled that she walked away and fell to my knees in prayer.
I learned that God is Jehovah Jirah, our Provider and Protector.
God’s amazing! Happy Birthday and much love Courtney.
