shortly after our bible lesson this morning. I was teaching on where power comes from and our bible verse was from Zechariah 4:6. "Not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit says the Lord Almighty."
Lucia felt confident and wanted to recite it herself. Seeing her brought chills to me- watching her, listening to her voice speak such truth. There was power radiating so I went ahead and videotaped her and put on Facebook. I told her that I knew that she would bless someone by hearing her share the verse and so she said I could put it on.
Then I saw this photo.
She came home in May of last year. Just a tiny one at 16.
No schooling. Every breath painful and labored.
We didn't know what tomorrow looked like....and now it's been about 420 tomorrows later!! Just astounds me!
And this is what my girl is doing this afternoon
I wish so much that I could come here more often to update all of you on her progress because there is just SO much to smile and give thanks for. Thank you again to so many who have invested prayers into her life. She is taking the gifts God has given to her and is sharing them with those who meet her.
Hope is a beautiful thing. And when it meets opportunity, it's pretty amazing to watch unfold.
