God’s Little Miracle TO Share..

Like any good mother, when Karen found out that another baby was on the way, she did what she could to help her 3-year-old son, Michael, prepare for a new sibling. They found out that the new baby was going to be a girl, and day after day, night after night, Michael sang to his sister in mommy’s tummy. He was building a bond of love with his little sister before he even met her.

The pregnancy progressed normally for Karen, an active member of the Panther Creek United Methodist Church in Morris town , Tennessee. In time, the labor pains came. Soon it was every five minutes, every three, every minute. But serious complications arose during delivery and Karen found herself in hours of labor. Would a C-section be required? Finally, after a long struggle, Michael’s little sister was born. But she was in very serious condition. With a siren howling in the night, the ambulance rushed the infant to the neonatal intensive care unit at St. Mary’s Hospital, Knoxville , Tennessee.

The days inched by. The little girl got worse. The pediatrician had to tell the parents there is very little hope. Be prepared for the worst. Karen and her husband contacted a local cemetery about a burial plot. They had fixed up a special room in their house for their new baby but now they found themselves having to plan for a funeral. Michael however, kept begging his parents to let him see his sister. I want to sing to her, he kept saying. Week two in intensive care looked as if a funeral would come before the week was over.

Michael kept nagging about singing to his sister, but kids are never allowed in Intensive Care. Karen decided to take Michael whether they liked it or not. If he didn’t see his sister right then, he may never see her alive. She dressed him in an over-sized scrub suit and marched him into ICU. He looked like a walking laundry basket. The head nurse recognized him as a child and bellowed, ‘Get that kid out of here now. No children are allowed!’

The mother rose up strong in Karen, and the usually mild-mannered lady glared steel-eyed right into the head nurse’s face, her lips a firm line. ‘He is not leaving until he sings to his sister’ she stated. Then Karen towed Michael to his sister’s bedside. He gazed at the tiny infant losing the battle to live. After a moment, he began to sing.

In the pure-hearted voice of a 3-year-old, Michael sang: ‘You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are gray.’ Instantly the baby girl seemed to respond. The pulse rate began to calm down and become steady.

‘Keep on singing, Michael,’ encouraged Karen with tears in her eyes. ‘You never know, dear, how much I love you, please don’t take my sunshine away.’ As Michael sang to his sister, the baby’s ragged, strained breathing became as smooth as a kitten’s purr. ‘Keep on singing, sweetheart.’

‘The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping, I dreamed I held you in my arms’ Michael’s little sister began to relax and rest, healing rest, seemed to sweep over her. ‘Keep on singing, Michael.’

Tears had now conquered the face of the bossy head nurse. Karen glowed.

‘You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. Please don’t take my sunshine away.’

The next day…the very next day, the little girl was well enough to go home. Woman’s Day Magazine called it The Miracle of a Brother’s Song. The medical staff just called it a miracle. Karen called it a miracle of God’s love. NEVER GIVE UP ON THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE. LOVE IS SO INCREDIBLY POWERFUL.

May you be truly blessed this day!

Blessings,

Eileen

Count Your Blessings Along The Way..

Have any one ever heard of this song entitled ‘Count your blessings’? This song speaks of what  is much needed in my heart right now.  Here are the lyrics of this song:

Introducing Prime Pantry – Everyday Essentials Delivered to You
Count Your Blessings

When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,

When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,

Count your many blessings, name them one by one,

And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

 Refrain

 Count your blessings,

name them one by one, Count your blessings,

see what God hath done! Count your blessings,

name them one by one,

And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?

Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?

Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,

And you will keep singing as the days go by.

 Refrain

 When you look at others with their lands and gold,

Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;

Count your many blessings.

Wealth can never buy your reward in heaven,

nor your home on high.

 Refrain

 So, amid the conflict whether great or small,

Do not be disheartened, God is over all;

Count your many blessings, angels will attend,

Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.

 Refrain

Personal Testimony Of Dan And Eileen

Since Sept 2009, Dan and I have been on a long journey filled with tests and trials of our faith in God. The toughest part of our journey of faith is trusting and surrendering our unknown future to Him. Believing that His provisions would come on time when we needed Him. At certain time, we even thought God has forgotten us. At the beginning of 2010, we made some resolutions for the year. We trust that in His time, He will fulfill all of them. This is the year our church believes is the year for us to inherit. God has His inheritance laid before us, that we as His children would have the faith to claim them as our own. It is indeed a season for greater growth in our faith and knowledge of who God is. Looking back over the last eight months, we saw God’s provisions in many ways. 2010 is a year full of blessings already. We were blessed to have 3 of my family members and relative came to visit us in San Francisco. We were thinking of visiting family in Singapore this year. However, we could not fulfill this plan this year due to financial constrain. We still would like to do so later when we are able. Knowing that we are not able to go, God brought them to us. It’s amazing sometimes, watching His provisions.  Eileen finally had her green card in her hands, May, this year. At the end of June, Eileen was admitted to the ER and in a few days, she had to have her gall bladder and gall stones removed due to the inflammation of her gall bladder. Without health insurance and financial difficulty because Dan was without a job since September 2009, we were naturally worried about the bills. Somehow, in the midst of all these, God provided through the charity organization from the hospital. All bills were paid for by the charity organization and every visits to the hospital would be paid for until September 14th. Has God been good to us? Yes, He most certainly have! Although, we are still learning to trust Him to provide in other areas, we have been indeed blessed in many ways this year. We certainly believe God has His purpose and reason in withholding some of our prayers we have had in order that we may grow deeper and stronger in our faith in Him. So, have you count your blessings yet? When you do, you will see that God is still in control of your life. Look for the blessings that come along your way rather than the loss. And you will see God in ways you’ve never seen Him before. We hope that our testimony will be a blessing to you today.  Blessings, Dan and Eileen
