If you have been a follower of Happy Home Fairy, you know that the last almost 6 months of our Happy Home’s life have been a journey from one roller coaster to the next as we navigated treacherous waters concerning our newborn’s health.
(If you are new, you can find the posts related to the Happy Baby’s journey HERE.)
From the moment he was born and it was clear that the Happy Baby would not survive without immediate oxygen support, to the moment where the doctors basically told us to take our son home and make him comfortable because he was going to die, to the weeks and weeks of medicines/speculations/procedures in the hospital, to the day when his genetic testing finally returned, we came to rely on God’s provision of strength and support through the friends and family He so graciously placed in our lives.
In a season where everything we had ever known was tested, God used the lives of many to keep our hearts from sinking too deep into the mire.
In fact, over the next 11 days as I share the various ways people helped us, you may very well get to thinking that the last 6+months were hardly a trial at all, but a period of unmerited blessing and great material/spiritual abundance.
I pray that this blog series will in turn be a resource for you to use for many years to come as you encounter other Happy Homes struggling with difficult circumstances, whether they be hospitalization, illness, loss, financial stress, relationship hardships, etc., etc.
We are The Church and it is our job to care for one another.
And it is in that truth that the Happy Hubby was able to write an update to our congregation just a few weeks into the Happy Baby’s battle and sign it saying, “We are suffering, but so blessed.”
