She'll Never Walk

video

The BEST doctor in Guangzhou told us a few short days ago, our little Libbie would never walk unassisted, or even bear her own weight. He didn't know our girl or the power of our Great God. Now I counted 25 squeaks!!!! Lambert asked me this morning if I really thought she would walk on her own. He was full of doubt and concern. (He is a mother hen full of worry all of the time!) While Hoot and I took a nap she started letting go of the sofa, testing herself. When I woke up she put on a show! My heart sings with joy!

Psalm 71:14As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
