Makenna: Our Little Miracle

Makenna's 4th birthday party.

Makenna’s 4th birthday party.

“Congratulations, Grandma & Grandpa! We have a little girl, but my, is she tiny!” Those were the words we heard four years ago when our granddaughter, Makenna, was born. As many of you know, she was born three and a half months early and weighed only 15 ounces!

We stood solely on the Word of God and His faithfulness. She spent her first seven and a half months in the hospital with many ups & downs. In fact, five times they gave us the report that she would die, yet we stood firm on the promises of God.

Today, despite all of the negative reports, we celebrated Makenna’s fourth birthday. As you can see by the pictures, she is a completely healthy, joyful little girl! TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY! Her life is a witness to the miraculous power of Jesus Christ! We indeed serve a risen Savior!

We want to thank each of you for standing with us in prayer & faith in God. Isaiah the prophet wrote, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5).

Thank you Jesus for the stripes you bore and the suffering you endured for our healing!
