everlasting joy

I am so thankful to all of you who have reached out to ask me how Hasya is doing after her recent bone break.  Thank you for caring.  It really means a lot to me.

We had her cast removed about ten days ago.  The first few days after that were rough.  Her tiny bones are so fragile and the area where the break happened is still very swollen. She still can’t straighten her leg all the way, but we’re told that’s to be expected, and it could be that way for several weeks.

Thankfully, Hasya turned a corner a few days ago and she is doing so much better.

She’s back to being her happy, content, delightful self.

We are so grateful that her doctors are finally listening and we’ve been referred to a specialist who will hopefully do something about her brittle bones.  Enough is enough!  Her appointment is only in November, but we’re so thankful that it’s scheduled and hopefully we can get some answers and some relief for our beautiful young lady.

What a blessing this little love is to us!  She is pure JOY.

Truthfully, there was a time when I wondered…

“How will you restore joy to this child, Father?”

“Is it even possible, Lord?”

“You promise Hasya in your Word that joy does come in the morning…but will it?  Really?”

Such little faith.

He has taken her sorrow, her pain, and her absolute brokenness and He has done a NEW THING.

The old is gone.

And the new is here (2 Cor. 5:17).

Does that mean that the journey is easy and we never face trials?  Of course not!  It means that we embrace the trials and the hard times (through tears and broken hearts and with fragile faith), we press on through the challenges, and we trust our God who adores this child so much more than we ever could…

…and that He who started a good work in her will carry it on to completion. (Phil 1:6)

“Behold, I will do a new thing. It springs forth now. Don’t you know it?”  ~~  Isaiah 43:19

Yes, I do know it.  I see it every day.

He’s such a faithful Father to our Hasya.
