God has shown much mercy on Ian in the past eight months. Over the past few days, he has given us many signs that he's with us. He is reaching out for our hands, he pulled my arm around his neck so I would be hugging him, he holds Lydia when she is sitting on his lap. It seems like daily he is showing us how much he cares for us, which is very, very sweet.
"This is God's universal purpose for all Christian suffering: more contentment in God and less satisfaction in self and the world. I have never heard anyone say, 'The really deep lessons of life have come through times of ease and comfort.' But I have heard strong saints say, 'Every significant advance I have ever made in grasping the depths of God's love and growing deep with Him has come through suffering."
Thank you all for praying...
