Answered Prayer

Tonight I saw my daughter’s faith grow by (literally) leaps and bounds.

My girls and I were on a “date” so we ate at one of our favorite places, Olive Garden. On the way out of the restaurant we ran into Gene and Lee Graham walking in.

The key word is “walking”. Lee has been in a wheelchair as she endured several years of foot problems and the surgeries that went with such problems. Her health issues are not totally over, but she is getting better. I hugged her and told her it was good to see her walking.

As my girls and I walked away Paige jumped in the air and shouted, “I’ve had my blessing for the day! I’ve had my blessing for the day!”

“What are you talking about, Paige?” I asked.

“Ms. Lee, she’s walking. That’s what I’ve been praying for. I’ve been asking God to let her walk again, and now she is! . . . Can I call Mom and tell her?”

As Paige told her mom how God answered her prayers I silently prayed a “thank you”. My daughter’s faith had just taken a giant step forword.
