Answered Prayers

This is Braeden! He belongs to my Goddaughter and her husband. He was recently admitted to the hospital with the RSV virus in late January. He was in the ICU and on oxygen. She posted on social media about it and asked for prayers.  It was very a scary time for the new parents and their families.  I immediately reposted and asked for prayers.  I asked my friends to lift him up as his life had just begun and there was so much more for him to do. We all kept in touch with each other. 

The following morning, I received this message from my Goddaughter: "Thank you, and everyone praying for my son! It means so much to me. He has been taken off oxygen and just finished an entire bottle. This is some good progress. We hope he can do well off the oxygen now."

By the afternoon, I received this message:  "Thank you all for the prayers! Brady is doing well enough to come home from the hospital today! I really feel once everyone started praying he was lifted into recovery. I truly believe in the power of prayer!"

I have been thinking of closing down my social media account as I realize it has become a distraction to me.  Hours can go by in a blink of an eye with nothing to show for my time.  But then, something like this comes along, and my heart says "go!" So, I go!

God answers our prayers, Tootsie's Mom. He is a cute little guy who deserves to lead a good and fulfilling life. Yes, it is hard to discipline Social Media time and like a lot of us, I spend too much. But then I'm retired, soon I can tell St. Peter what all I did with my life.

I'm so glad Braeden is doing better and the prayers were answered. Don't close down your social media. I think it's OK to take a break once in a while. I try and post once a week and read when I have extra time. I no longer pressure myself to keep up.

Braeden looks like a miracle. All children have that glow and spark of the future in them, don't they?

I'm so glad the RSV didn't get worse for him. Prayers are powerful warriors.

Thank you for sharing this lovely story and warming my heart for week 14.
