99 balloons...

I happened to catch a bit of the Oprah show today and stumbled on this. It was being shown on her show and it moved me so much!! I was crying! It is about a baby boy, Eliot who had a disease that his parents knew about before he was born. They were told he wouldn't make it to birth, but he did, and ,more!! It is very moving and unbelievable to know that God works in these ways we don't understand but are so very thankful for. Although something like this happened it ultimately drew them closer to the Lord. He does not do these things by accident. There is always a purpose!! I am moved that although little Eliot was only here for 99 days he had so much purpose and meaning in the time he lived here on Earth. Please watch this video and you'll know what I mean!! To have that kind of Faith is awesome!!
