I posted an article about giving at Keeping The Kingdom first today! Come visit!
For those of you who have been around awhile, you may remember when I found out my mom was ill with terminal cirrhosis of the liver. I hopped on a plane right away and went to visit her because the doctors said they thought, while they couldn't predict these things, that she had around two months to live.
That was seven months ago.
She is still here...and doing very well. So well in fact, that she is literally HERE with me this week! This truly is a miracle...and an answered prayer.
Amazing miracle & answered prayer #1: I have prayed for years that my mom would stop drinking (she's been an alcoholic for 20 + years). Seven and half months ago she quit drinking cold turkey because she said, "Jesus told me to stop." That was it. Hasn't touched a drink since.
Amazing miracle & answered prayer #2: Two weeks after my mom quit drinking, she found out she had terminal cirrhosis of the liver. Her liver was destroyed and she was only predicted to live a couple months, if that. If she did live longer, she wouldn't be "aware." Friends, my mom is not only alive, but she is doing great! Hospice is even going to release her if she continues on the track she's on.
Amazing miracle & answered prayer #3: My mom has only ever met my daughter once, when my daughter was seven months old. She hasn't see her since, and she's never met my son (who is two now) or my new baby. Once she found out that death was staring her in the face, she wanted desperately to meet them...she wanted them to know her. We didn't have the money to all go visit, and her health wouldn't allow her to come here. I prayed that God would somehow make a way for her to meet her grandchildren. He did. The doctors gave her the go ahead to fly because she is doing so well. We found a round trip ticket from Florida to here for only $180! We will be spending the next five days together.
God has heard my cry, yet again, and answered my prayers.
I am motivated to keep praying. He is faithful.
