Looking for a miracle

This morning, I was reading my favorite blogs, and I came across a link to another blog along with a prayer request. I clicked the link, and was brought to tears by what I read.

Confessions Of A CF Husband is the blog of a man named Nathan, who is married to a woman with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). His wife, Tricia, recently gave birth to their first child, a daughter, named Gwyneth Rose. Due to complications from her CF, it was neccessary for Tricia to give birth via C-section at only 24 weeks gestation. Clicking on this link will take you to Nathan's blog.

What amazed me the most about this blog is that here is a guy who is really dealing with a lot of stress, frustration, and probably some fear - but he doesn't dwell on it. His posts are full of praises to God, prayer requests for families other than his own, and such obvious love for his wife. There is no regret there, no "feel sorry for me" - it's all about his desire to see God glorified through all of the circumstances that Nathan and Tricia are dealing with. This man has a servant's heart!

Tricia also has a blog, with pictures, her "story", and an opportunity to learn more about Cystic Fibrosis. There has been a trust fund set up to help Tricia and Nathan with the medical expenses related to Tricia's treatment, and you can find out information on how to donate there as well. This link will take you to Tricia's site. I encourage you to visit both sites, and see how God is working in this family's lives.

I hope that any who reads this will take a few moments to pray for this family, because our God answers prayers!

I couldn't have said it better myself Julie. Nate, Tricia and Gwyneth are such special people. I feel like I know them just by Nate's transparency. He knows God is in control and I applaud him for his honest accessment of life's situations. May God be glorified through this sweet family. I feel HE already has been.
