    This story has made all the hairs on the back of my head stand on end. He really has got it sorted, doesn’t He.

    Love this Emma! So funny and spine-tinglingly scary at the same time. God is good. Praise him.

    Emma. I could just burst into tears with a mixture of relief and awe when I read the last part of this post.
    THANK God.
    I honestly could cry. And I’m not a crier.
    If I post a link to a song that I love, a song which is so completely in line with your experience, would you listen to it all the way through? Like… even if it is just a teensy bit country…? (wince)

    What a relief to read the ending….I was getting pretty concerned…but thank God all is well.
    Praying for safety for this special child…In His love. Perhaps you will get to see the Kangaroos in Australia one of these days……who knows?

    Here’s the web address. I tried to get it on YouTube but gave up cos there were so many covers!
    If you can get past the twang factor (something I hang my head and admit that I love) the words and sentiment are kind of paralleling your story.

    Hope you enjoy it!

    Sending love

    Oh Emma!
    My heart was in my mouth!
    God is so much gooder (better? more good?) than we give him credit for. Or perhaps that’s just me.

    This is an incredible story. Reminds us that God is in charge, knows what he’s doing and is taking care of us even when we don’t see it that way. I have been telling this story to everyone around me!

    Wowzers. Praise God. Reminds me in a little way of Corrie Ten Boom – her sister told her to thank God for everything even in their concentration camp, including the fleas. Corrie’s faith was incredible but she couldn’t find gratitude for fleas (I don’t blame her!). Later on it turned out that the reason their Bible studies and prayer sessions were never discovered by the camp guards was because the guards were avoiding the fleas! Sovereign over all creation indeed. What a story you will have to tell your little one of how God was protecting them years before they were thought of.

    Wonderful reminder about Corrie Ten Boom: and the God who works through fleas and chickenpox!
