Astounding the Mind of Men

Don't you just love it when God surpasses all our expectations and astounds the minds of men? This sweet girl Elysha, born on Saturday with multiple heart defects, is happily at home with her Mommy and Daddy and doing so much better than all of the learned doctors and specialists could have dreamed. In fact, her Daddy and Mommy had to do a bit of emergency 'essentials' shopping because they weren't prepared to bring her home so soon! She was supposed to need surgery and be in hospital for quite some time, but she is at home! Isn't God's plan so much better then what we have in mind? We're going to keep on praying for this precious girl and her family, since she still faces major heart surgery. Her doctors would like her to gain weight and be at least 6 months old before her surgery. I hope her Mommy and Daddy don't mind me sharing her sweet baby picture here and giving you an update, but I am so excited to see God's hand at work!


  1. i was overjoyed to read this! What a blessing for this family to be able to take their baby home! And to hear that her problems were not as severe as they thought. i do hope her eventual heart surgery will go well and she will grow quickly to be prepared for that.

  2. Our ever faithful boy is quite certain that God can 'put her heart parts' back in the right places before she even needs surgery - time will tell! I am astounded at how many children are being born with heart difficulties these days - and how advanced the surgeries now are - perhaps God will heal through surgical expertise - whatever the plan, He will be glorified! Isn't she just the sweetest little bundle of joy?
