We are rejoicing & praising this evening in the Newman house!! Whoop-whoop!
Mira had her cast removed today, she is healed& doing great BUT this isn't the big deal!
You see, things around here have been difficult. Part of it has been self inflicted, after all we did uproot our lives & move 1/2 way across the country... But this was Gods will for us. It's just hard missing our family, friends, church family.. And to boot we have a struggling business. There have been many prayers said here, for Mira's bones, for Kayla's heart & quality of life, Sami's diabetes, Emily's adjustment.. Our business/ finances... Strength & endurance... But one thing I can honestly say DIDN'T make the list was Mira's eyes. As you may recall, she has been wearing glasses, she had little to no vision in one eye. I was overjoyed to learn 6 weeks ago that they could correct her to 20/70 with glasses! That was just the start....
GOD IS HERE!!! (Even without my prayers!)
oh and I might post a disclaimer:
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO GO THRU LIFE WITHOUT PRAYER!!!
We are beyond excited to find out today that Mira's eyes have improved tremendously!! The doctor told us at our last appt to expect Mira to need 3-4 hrs of patching per day to strengthen her weak eye. Upon her exam today with no patching yet they examined her to have 20/30 vision in that eye just using glasses!!! Her doctor said she was shocked at the change!!! She didn't have much of an explanation.. But we all know HOW this happened!! Mira only has to patch 1 hour per day for just a little while!! Praise God!!!
It is easy to find yourself doubting, wondering & questioning when you hit a low spot but.... Then... HE reveals himself. Blatantly. No doubt.
Thanking you Heavenly Father for your constant presence in our lives, thank you for forgiving us when we doubt you... I pray that I can be as forgiving as you in my daily life...
Please keep Mira in your prayers as she is scheduled for plastic surgery on her eyes to open them. This is scheduled for August 22nd. Of course I will post pics & her status!
There are a few pics attached & yes she chose snowflakes.. Whatever makes the princess happy!! Lol!!
The past few weeks have been busy, we have been having so much fun. There's lots to post but this sorta took priority! I will post all of the excitement we've had lately soon!
