|Praying for God's Presence to be real!|

Today was the big day for our Darla! She has been praying for over 2 yrs now that Jesus would make a way for her to get braces! He answered that prayer for her in His time! Ever wonder why when we pray we hear very little... enough sometimes to let us know He's there... but not tons, or how and when we expect it to happen? Ok, then I just admitted to you my weakness, but I have wondered at times. Our family had gone through a pretty tough time where she, as a child learning Who God Is, was questioning what God was doing and where He was in her life! It was JUST at that time that the Lord chose to answer her prayer, to prove to her that HE WAS INDEED REAL and did care about her smile, inside and out! What a GREAT BIG WONDERFUL GOD WE SERVE!
Now along with braces comes mashed potatoes and applesauce, mac and cheese etc! Cause it hurts TOO badly to eat tough stuff! She is my meat lover and so the following day she came to me saying she was "starving and wanted some venison!! =) Of course she couldn't eat that yet... tried a lil soft chicken on Sunday, but said, "Uh, I pretty much had to gum that bite..." Made me smile! She's a real trooper, but will probably loose a pound or two for it takes her F.O.R.E.V.E.R. to floss and brush her teeth, When she thinks about eating she usually asks herself, "How long will it take me to clean up my teeth?!" =)
