Shahad’s smile

Her smile is back!!

Shahad is such a strong girl. Just yesterday she had her cath and the first thing I saw today in the hospital was her walking with one of the teachers to do some creative activities. I was just amazed about how much strength and joy this little girl carries with her. It reminded me of Isaiah 40.29: “He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.“
As I watched Shahad get her smile back and earn new strength, I could see God’s miracle in her life. I sat by her bed while her aunt was asleep but she wasn’t tired at all. So we played games with our fingers and she taught me (very quietly) how to count in Arabic.

If I ever have to be in the hospital for a long time, I want to have her great smile on my face and her endurance. Hopefully she will be discharged tomorrow and can continue bringing joy to the people surrounding her at home.

Please pray that everything will be fine for her and that her aunt can get some rest. I‘m so thankful to God for His grace and His light that shines within Shahad. May she some day accept His light and love for her journey on this earth.
