Since Ander’s arrival I have been slacking in my video making, so here is a video of Karis as a four-year-old.
The song is “Thrive” by Casting Crowns (Apparently I’ll be sued if I don’t put that EVERYWHERE. ) and I believe it tells our story so beautifully. Yes, Karis has a “terminal” illness, but by the power of the Holy Spirit at work in her, she can THRIVE…not just survive. If she can live a full God-glorifying life in that little body of hers, WE can too! Amen?
Karis’ birthday is always hard for me. I’m flooded with just about every emotion, but above all, I’m grateful. We continue to pray every day for walking legs, speaking lips, and miraculous enzyme production. For now, He has called us to wait on those things. So we wait. Knowing that Karis’ Savior will (and does) supply ALL HER NEEDS according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
This video was fun. Don’t blink!
To celebrate turing five, I’ve painted this scripture on the walls in Karis’ room. I’d love for you to pray it with me:
“Because (she) holds fast to me in love, I will deliver (her). I will protect (her) because (she) knows my name. With long life I will satisfy (her) and show (her) my salvation.” Psalm 91
