“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.” Romans 8:26
Never have I cried out this verse more than this day four years ago. Neely’s open heart surgery day. I didn’t know WHAT to pray. All I knew was that I needed God to hold my tiny baby’s heart in His hands and protect her. I knew that if He took her from us on that day, that He was still God. That He loved me AND her more than I could ever imagine.
But that day healing was in His plan. Healing here on earth. Thanks be to God for His protection over her life. I know you might catch a glimpse, but you have no idea the BLESSING that she is to our family. She is amazing. She was the answer to my prayers. She led us to MinLan and MinLan led us to John Preston.
Today we celebrate Neely’s Happy Heart Day! And what an AMAZING day it is!!! Her doctors, nurses and the whole UAB and Children’s team was amazing. I’ll never forget the prayers and love from our many friends in those days. And just look at her now! The sky is the limit thanks to that beautiful beating HEART!!! ❤️❤️❤️
So many of you didn’t know us then….you are new friends! Catch up on this part of our journey at the link below:
