|My brother and my daughters, yesterday.|
Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? -Jesus (John 11:40)
And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always... (John 11:41b-42a.)
My brother has been unwell for many years. (I thought 8; he says 9.) 12 days ago he was transported via ambulance to an ER in Knoxville, Tennessee because he couldn't move his arms and legs. Since then, his potassium level has been restored (ending the paralysis), and he has undergone surgery--in Baltimore, Maryland!--to have a nerve stimulator inserted into his back. He will have another surgery within the next few days but was released to drive to me (near Richmond, Virginia) over the weekend. He feels better than he has in a long time. My entire family has the sense that we are living a miracle.
The verses above are from my very favorite story in the Bible: that of Lazarus's resurrection.
