HUMBLED ...

As I sit here at my computer exhausted, over joyed, filled to the top with the Lord, and just down right HUMBLED by His provisions ... You have to go read Kelly's blog because she did a post on Maggie and says much better than I how God is restoring my daughter two-fold ... What was robbed from her in China is being given back in a way only the Lord can do and not just to her, but to us as a family ... To say that we have had an outpouring of support, love, encouragement, and help is an understatement ... I won't even attempt to tell you about the meals, paper good, trips to the store, presents for the children, the diet coke/chocolate for me, the calls, the textes, emails, the cookie bouquet, the movies, the snack baskets, the posters, the visits, the ballons, and so much more that have happened over the last 4 days ... YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE IT ... At this I am truly greatful, I am humbled by your love and prayers ... PRAYER works ... Maggie is exhausting me by running around, playing, and just being a 3 year old, when I was told she would be in pain and not really wanting to do anything ... NOT MY GIRL, NOT A DAUGHTER OF THE KING ... I am doing my best to keep her calm so her head doesn't bleed through the tubes ... Please continue to pray and when I have longer I will post some pictures ... but in the meantime go to Rhonda's blog where she has posted some Princess Maggie pictures (MacyLi came over w/ lots of goodies for us) ...

Let's add to this Katie's lastest blog post and I am literally spiritually exhausted in a good way ... I am watching the Father work here in my house, I am watching a t-shirt that I designed to bring home A/J touch people's lives, I am watching Katie parent over 15 children and give of herself more each day, and I am watching people begin the process of adoption, and it is all so GOD meeting us and hearing our cries, our prayers, and needs as He opens our eyes to His plan for our days ... He is pointing us to help, to serve, and to be willing to get our of our box ... I AM HUMBLED TO BE A BELIEVER TODAY ...

I love you all REALLY ...

Dear Maggie,

This is Matthew Miller. I have been updating my 3rd grade class about your recent surgery. We have been praying for you every single day. I cannot wait to share the update with my class tomorrow and let them know you have been awake and active and not in bed. You are a brave little girl. We will keep praying till you have a full head of hair and are 100%. I hope to see you soon. Please tell your Mom to let my Mom know if you need anything.

Love from your praying friend,
Matthew Miller
