I was driving Philip home from school yesterday after a dreary rainy day. Philip was happily chattering about his day, and then he mentioned his most embarrassing moment in Bible class. He had fallen asleep in class!! His instructor had kindly advised him to go to the first aid station, but Philip told me that he resolved that would never happen again!

The past 3-4 days Philip has really struggled with his breathing at night, while wearing his BIPAP. Like I've said before, it is so difficult to watch him struggle. I feel so helpless in watching, repositioning, or holding him. There is nothing to do but cry and pray that he would rest well so that he would be refreshed the next morning.
I couldn't help but get teary-eyed when Philip told me about his embarrassing moment in class. I again thought to myself, which doctor should I talk to, and how else could we correct things or help him? Suddenly, Philip shouted, "Mom, look, look ahead!" I panicked, thinking I was heading for a car. Then he shouted, "look at the rainbow, it's a reminder of God's promises!"
It was indeed a beautiful rainbow, and we saw two together, in fact. I thought of the promises obtained over the years. Many promises over the future of Philip and the miracles in the past, and the miracles we believe to come.
There is no such thing as coincidence. This was a providential reminder, God does keep his promises. People fail us, things, life, nothing is for certain. But God. His Word never fails.
Stay strong, my friends. God is on the throne, and He never changes.
