I’ve had a couple of people ask about the outcomes of some of the things I’ve written about over the past few months (years). I realized that I sometimes tell you all but the ending of some stories and then never mention it again.
Kind of like a TV show with a cliffhanger that gets canceled and so you never know what happens.
Carnivale, I’m looking right straight at you.
Anyway, I thought I’d try to wrap a couple of these stories up today.
First of all, Baby Solomon. I wrote about Solomon and his wonderful family about a month ago. Solomon was born with anacephaly which meant that he was born without a significant portion of his brain and was not really expected to live until delivery and if he did, to only survive for a very little while outside his mama’s womb.
God had other ideas for Baby Solomon. He lived 6 days and was well loved every minute of that precious time. Reports of his funeral were that it was full of love and joy and hope. Tinged, of course with sadness, but all came away with the feeling that God’s glory had certainly been put on display.
Please continue to pray for Milton, Leah and their children. The grieving will go on. Perhaps for a lifetime. But they know they will see their sweet boy again.
And that he will be whole.
Sam is the son of a friend of mine who broke his neck in a freak accident on the first day of college two years ago. It was uncertain at the time what level of function that he would get back. It didn’t look good.
But God had other ideas for Sam, as well. Today he is back in college and doing well. Walking on his own. Back to normal. Although I’m sure it’s a whole new normal filled with the knowledge that he is a literal walking miracle.
So there you are. Two example of God doing the unexpected.
And here I am. 19 months out.
Make that three examples.
