Embroidered together

Those of you that know me know that my daughter has been dealing with a health issue that has been healing over a period of time. For the last ten days I have been in the hospital with her, staying by her side as she receives needed medical attention. This is the first time one of our family has required medical care of this nature and for this many days. It has been and continues to be a journey that has totally changed my perspective of life.

Psalm 139:15,16 Amplified Bible
My frame was not hidden from You when I was being formed in secret and intricately and curiously wrought (as if embroidered with various colors) in the depths of the earth (a region of darkness and mystery.)
Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days (of my life) were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there were none of them.

Our physical bodies are a masterpiece of harmonious blends. We are intricately embroidered together by our loving heavenly Father. When one part becomes unbalanced, it affects so many other parts. The medical care givers in the hospital have the awesome responsibility to restore the balances. Of course, it is God that heals, and I know that He designed our bodies to heal themselves. I also have seen that it is sometimes a blend of natural healing and medical know-how that brings to pass the healing.
Thank you so much for all your prayers. Morgan is, as always, beautiful, peaceful, and excited to be feeling better and stronger every day.
