Some people see miracles happen instantaneously. We've been lucky enough to watch a miracle slowly unfold daily before our very eyes. I distinctly remember at least three occasions when doctors sat us down for "the talk" about Clayton. "He's getting worse." "This is as bad as we've seen." "There's nothing else we can do for him." "You need to prepare yourself." We needed to prepare ourselves alright. Prepare ourselves for a life with an extraordinary little boy who is a daily witness to God's power in each of us.
For ten years, he has defied the odds and blossomed in spite of his condition and diagnoses.
And to that, I say "Praise God!," and a very Happy Birthday to Clayton!
But those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
