Food We Know Nothing About
I was expecting you to be allowed to eat today, but since your first barium enema results were inconclusive, the doctor wants to wait a few days for all of the contrast to leave your system and then we will try again on Thursday. And since we don't know what is going on with your digestive system, the doctors feel it is best that you don't eat anything until we figure it out. You already haven't eaten since Thursday and I hate to think how hungry you might become. I had been praying that God would make your tummy feel full when your Grammy called to remind me of a verse in John. After Jesus spoke with the woman at the well, His disciples were encouraging Him to eat. Jesus replied, "I have food to eat you know nothing about" referring to doing the will of God. You are such a special girl. There are probably thousands of people all over the world praying for you. We get emails from people we have never met saying that you have impacted them in amazing ways. You won't know the difference you have made in strangers lives until we get to Heaven--your Daddy and I are so proud you are ours. God is doing great things through you while you unknowingly rest in your little crib, and in the meantime we are praying that He will give you food we know nothing about.
