What BIG steps Miss Kens has taken this week! She has had a very busy week with a strict and strenuous therapy schedule. Earlier in the week came THE HUG (see previous post :)), and now tonight, look at this face - have you seen anything this precious in a while?? Kensley's cousin (who could really be her sister) Keelie climbed up in the bed messing with her, and this is what happened along with laughing noises!!!
Everywhere I go, someone asks, "How is Kensley? Is she awake?" We are all waiting, watching, praying and believing that God's miracle is working in this precious baby's life. We have NO DOUBT of that!!! Right now, she is responding more, becoming more active, starting to focus on things like the TV, and showing expressions and making noises along with this. This is a HUGE step from where we were 13 days ago in Florida praising God that the tubes were all out. What is necessary from all of God's children now is to continue to pray the prayer of faith without ceasing now, as much as we did when she was clinging to life almost a month ago. She is making baby steps every day - Praise the Lord for baby steps!!!! With this thought, we all also know that if it is God's will, He could allow her to just "wake" up tomorrow with no lasting side effects. We also know that it may be His will to travel the longer path to the same outcome. Whatever His will, it is perfect!!!!
"Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us."
"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
While we wait, we praise Him for where we are and where we know we will be!
