Perspective

When all is well and all is "normal", it's easy to lose sight of the things that really matter and focus on the small things that irritate me on a day to day basis.

Shame on me for getting too comfortable.

Shame on me for focusing on myself and refusing to look up to see others and their struggles.

God has called me, and each one of us, to LOVE others but how on earth can that be done if I only think of me...my life...my routine...my family.

I've been given a dose of perspective lately that has humbled me to pieces.

It all started a week ago on Monday. Some of my bloggy friends participate in a "Not Me Monday" meme and I thought I'd give it a shot. I went to the appropriate link to read this.

I am at the Children's Hospital downtown, having just arrived with Stellan via ambulance ride from the hospital near our home, where I had been with him since 6 pm. Stellan's heart is in Supra Ventricular Tachycardia, the same state he was in when he nearly died in my womb.
There are many more words to this post and many other updates written after this post.

Now, I don't know this woman or her family and I've only JUST found her blog but I can tell you what I know of her as I've been praying and reading updates. "MckMama" is a very, VERY strong woman whom I admire. She's a Christian and knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that her 5 month old, Stellan, is in God's hands and is confident that that is the safest place for him to be. She's devoted to her son and hasn't left his side. She's the kind of person who's handled the ups and downs with grace.

I pray for her, her family, and Stellan constantly.

No longer will I focus on me and my "5 mile radius". I will look up. I will look out. I will stand in the gap for those who need my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you, "MckMama", for sharing your story. I know mine is not the only life changed.

Let us pray.
