I received a phone call from Chris yesterday and she got good news! Yay God!
For those of you who don't know, my sis had been diagnosed with an almost completely detached retina several weeks ago. She had surgery but the doctor wasn't too optimistic that she would have full recovery of her sight. She had to stay home and go through a rigorous schedule of two hours upright and then two hours down 24 hours a day.
At first, this wasn't too hard as she was tired but after a while ...this was quite difficult to maintain. She couldn't read and her vision in that eye was very poor. She could barely see shadows and yet she had to try to keep the eye open so she wouldn't develop "lazy eye".
On top of this, she owns a consignment shop and is totally dependent on that income. Thankfully, she has awesome friends who stepped in to help during the past 4 or 5 weeks but Chris is eager to get back. She's a popular sanguine personality and is going nuts staying at home and not seeing her customers who have become her friends.
She was so excited when the surgeon told her he couldn't believe how much her eye had improved. Immediately, Christine told him it was because of the prayers of so many people. She told him that her sister had a blog and people from all over the world were praying. He said that whatever they were doing ...worked!
Her surgeon was amazed about her progress and expects a full recovery. And do you know what? That's what so many were praying for ... a full recovery.
How's that for the power of prayer?
And yes ...He hears the prayers of His people.
How amazing is that?
