declaration


     Sawyer had to go to CHKD today because he spiked a fever.  The tests showed his kidney is fine, but his white blood cell count is low. He most likely has a virus. This is definitely the [much] lesser of the two evils and the good news is he does not have to be admitted into the hospital.

      Sawyer gives a lot of blood samples.His demeanor is much better now when the blood is drawn because his steroid dose has been dramatically reduced.  Today he kept an exceptionally brave face while they were drawing the blood.   

     When he got home from the hospital he showed me his band-aid and said, "Dad, I didn't cry.  I didn't even need juice."  There was a long pause.  I thought he was done.  Then he said in a matter-of-fact tone, "God helped me.  God is the best."  

     Sawyer does not make declarations like this very often.  So, it caught me off guard.  We are grateful Sawyer recognized God's grace and mercy in that moment.

This is a "memorial stone moment". God surely is good, all the time.

So thankful for his affirming word and thankful that he has been taught about the God that bestowed that Grace.

Sawyer definitely made God smile today. Me too along with a tear or two. God bless the DeBause family.

What a blessing to watch Sawyer grow in faith through these trials no kid "should have to go through." God's grace shining through that special child's life! Who can know how. the Lord will use Sawyer's life and story as he matures!

Love and prayers,
Joan
