Brother’s love!

 

This story that I read from internet really touched me. Hope others will be touched too!

 

A Brother’s Love

 

Like any good mother, when Karen found out that another baby was on the way, she did what she could to help her 3-year-old son, Michael, prepare for a new sibling. They find out that the new baby is going to be a girl, and day after day, night after night, Michael sings to his sister in Mommy’s tummy.

 

 

 The pregnancy progresses normally for Karen, an active member of the Panther Creek United Methodist Church in Morristown, Tennessee. Then the labor pains come. Every five minutes. Every minute. But complications arise during delivery. Hours of labor. Would a C-section be required? Finally, Michael’s little sister is born. But she is in serious condition. With siren howling in the night, the ambulance rushes the infant to the neonatal intensive care unit at St. Mary’s Hospital, Knoxville, Tennessee.

 

The days inch by. The little girl gets worse. The pediatric specialist tells the parents, “There is very little hope. Be prepared for the worst”. Karen and her husband contact a local cemetery about a burial plot. They have fixed up a special room in their home for the new baby, now they plan a funeral.

 

 Michael, keeps begging his parents to let him see his sister, “I want to sing to her,” he says. Week two in intensive care. It looks as if a funeral will come before the week is over. Michael keeps nagging about singing to his sister, but kids are never allowed in Intensive Care. But Karen makes up her mind. She will take Michael whether they like it or not. If he doesn’t see his sister now, he may never see her alive.

 

 She dresses him in an oversized scrub suit and marches him into ICU. He looks like a walking laundry basket, but the head nurse recognizes him as a child and bellows, “Get that kid out of here now! No children are allowed in ICU.”

 

 The mother rises up strong in Karen, and the usually mild-mannered lady glares steel-eyed into the head nurse’s face, her lips a firm line. “He is not leaving until he sings to his sister!” Karen tows Michael to his sister’s bedside. He gazes at the tiny infant losing the battle to live. And he begins to sing. In the pure hearted voice of a 3-year-old, Michael sings:

 

“You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are gray ” Instantly the baby girl responds. The pulse rate becomes calm and steady. Keep on singing, Michael. “You never know, dear, how much I love you, Please don’t take my sunshine away—“

 

The ragged, strained breathing becomes as smooth as a kitten’s purr. Keep on singing, Michael. “The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping, I dreamed I held you in my arms…” Michael’s little sister relaxes as rest, healing rest, seems to sweep over her. Tears conquer the face of the bossy head nurse. Karen glows.

 

 “You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. Please don’t take my sunshine away. God heard the little boys song and his plead.

 

 

Three weeks later they heard these words “The baby girl is well enough to go home!”

 

 Woman’s Day magazine called it “The miracle of a brother’s song.” The medical staff just called it a miracle. Karen called it a miracle of God’s love.

My thought!

This little boy’s love for his sister won’t just give up. He kept tugging his mom so that he can sing for his little sister. Maybe he thought that when he sang for her when she was in mothers tummy, she was alive and to keep the baby alive, he must continue singing for her. And God answered his prayer. So we too must not give up in praying to God, coz God always answer prayers in His perfect time.

God too keeps knocking at our hearts door,

 coz His voice makes as alive. Apart from Him and his words we are lost and will wither. But sometimes we are so stubborn and won’t hear from Him.

 

 

In psalm 36:9 It said that with God is the fountain of life and through Him we can see light.

 

And who would not want to find the fountain of life? Everybody does! So let us focus our eyes to God coz He is “the fountain of life!

 

Father, thank you for the life that you had given to us and for providing a way so that we can have an everlasting life with you. Let us be life bearers and let everything we put our hands into flourish and multiply, for your glory. Let us see others and everything  with your eyes, hear with your ears and feel with your heart.

Busy life!



 



I wonder if I can still find someone who is not busy with everything that’s need to be done in their lives!

 

I wish the day has more than 24 hours, so that I can spend time with all the things I supposed  to do with the 24 hours that God has giving me everyday.

 

But how do I do that?

When my alarm clock rings and the morning, I wish I still have more time to sleep .

 

 

Still have more time to have a quiet time with God before I begin my day.

 

Quiet Time with God

 

Then when I get up, I wish I have more time to enjoy my breakfast.

Have more time in front of the mirror so that I won’t look so tired when I arrived at work.

 

 

At work, I wish I can spend more time with the elderly so that they will feel not feel neglected. I wish to do a lot of things together with them, but I don’t have enough time.

 

At home I wish I will have more time  to do all the household chores

 

 

More time to spend with my with my loved ones, but the circumstances and distance holds us apart. I’m happy though for internet coz through facebook I can communicate with them and see their pictures.


I wish I have  more time to spend with my hobbies like:  handcrafts, facebooking, writing blog, reading christian articles, hobby books, blogs and connecting with others to name a few.

 

I wish I have more time to spend with my friends. To be a part of their lives too. I have many of them that I seldom see!

 

 

 

 I wish I will have more time to study Gods word and to share Gods love to others.

I wish I will have more time to exercise. So that I will be stronger.

 

More time to just watch God’s creation and meditate on His goodness.

 

 

But I have only 24 hours a day and I get so frustrated when the days go by and I’m getting older with still so much things I wanted to accomplish. Then God reminded me in:

Ecclesiastes 3: There is time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.

 

THEN I  JUST HAVE TO MAKE THE BEST OUT OF IT AND LEARN TO ENJOY EVERY MINUTE OF THE 24 HOURS A DAY THAT GOD IS GIVING ME EVERYDAY!.

 

Anyway I will be in heaven one day ( I hope so) then I will have all the time I need.

 

 

Is there someone out there who knows how to use the 24 hours a day wisely?
