Update on Miracles

We had joy-inducing news about Grams yesterday, and I wanted to share it. Less than a week after the doctors said that there was almost no chance her spinal cord would heal from her Christmas Eve fall, she has feeling in her toes! I really like doctors and nurses (being related to quite a few myself), but I occasionally like it when they are wrong. 🙂 Last night we were talking about ways that God “brings back the dead,” and right now I am overflowing with that truth–both watching Him literally bring her back physically one step at a time and also experiencing the way He brings life to my soul, awakening hope and faith and passion so that I am alive like never before. Can we all just jump for joy together and whoop? On three now…

On a less miraculous (but nonetheless unexplained) note, why is it so warm outside? It was 65 yesterday, here in Washington in January. The radio djs kept telling us to “enjoy the weather.” What? Put on shorts and go fly a kite? I am supposed to be curled up with sweaters and hot tea on the couch, perfectly content with windows between me and the snow. If it does not get back to normal frigid temperatures soon, all of nature–including me!–will start instinctually transforming into springish creatures and our sap will rise too high to go back to winter contentment…
