Want and Need, one of the many lessons we have learned over the past year. With Teresa's medical care so expensive ( her one heart medicine alone is over $1,200 a month ), we can only afford what we need.
I constantly tell the girls "God will provide all that you need".
This is sometimes difficult for them to understand...
For the past few months Grace has been asking ,almost daily , for a horse . A horse is so far off my radar of something we need right now. So after hearing about this tremendous "Need" for so long , I finally told her to take it up with God .If HE felt this was something she truly "Needed", than He would provide a way .
So guess what ... God provided a way to meet Grace's "Need".
Through a friend we learned of a horse rescue farm in need of volunteers to help rehabilitate abused horses.
Grace went through the training and has been volunteering there for the past 2 weeks. She is in heaven . She LOVES caring for the horses and is helping to build trust in humans again through loving care. She will soon be matched with a horse to foster until it is healthy enough to be adopted.
God knew Grace's "Need" when all I saw was "Want".
God continues to provide for our every need!
As summer comes to an end we are so thankful to God for giving Teresa a summer full of fun , laughter, love and many healthy days full of energy and free from illness.
Teresa will start Pre-K in September. We really struggled over whether or not to send her to school or home school her. A simple cold could potentially take her life. She really wants to go to school. I have faith God will provide for her every need .
We are returning to CHOP in early October for another heart Catheterization .
Still praying for a miracle...
