Watching Sam


I watch him play,
and I delight in seeing him create games and characters each having their own voice.


I watch him eat,
carefully with small mouthfuls, never enough to make a chubby tummy,


I watch him share,
laughing infectiously with his big brother, a secret game.


I watch him swim,
in the bath like a crocodile, full of excitement.


I watch him talk,
and share his ideas and plans with the world.

I watch him pray, 

every night  for God to fix his Mum, when he knows his own heart is broken.


I watch him accept,
his medicine every evening, wondering how it will affect his growing body.


I watch him test,
his own blood, with apprehension and then courage.


I watch him run,
with exuberance, and then get puffed and flop down.


I watch him do all of these things,
and then I look to God, because He is watching too.


I watch Him smile,
because He has the plan for our lives in His hands, and it delights Him.


I watch Him laugh,
as we overcome each hurdle, by he power of His name.


I watch Him rejoice,
As we walk this path in victory, because He knows we have won.

In all honesty there are some days that I even forget Sam has a heart condition.  There are some days that I am so oblivious, that I have forgotten his medication.  What a  comfort it is to know God's peace each and every step of the way.
