A HUGE answered prayer, and no peeking, swap partners!

Time for an AMAZING Christine update!

Many of you have been praying for my daughter, Christine. I cannot even begin to thank you enough for this act of kindness and mercy. . . but thank you. You'll be amazed at the power of your prayers. . . .

Yesterday, Christine had a regular check up with her retina specialist. Her last visit was 8 weeks ago, and her vision tested at 20/2200 (legally blind) and still colorblind in her affected eye. This was an improvement over total blindness back in May, wasn't it?

Back in May. In this picture, she was unable to open or move her eye, and could not see at all. This was day 2 in the hospital, after posterior scleritis was diagnosed, but before any treatment had begun. Her pain was so extreme, they were only able to get the pain under control with morphine.

But her retina specialist warned us at her last visit that the damage done to her retina was most likely permanent, and not to expect much improvement. I am happy to report that her specialist was proven wrong. Her vision tested at 20/25 yesterday, and she passed her colorblind tests! AMAZING. Her doctor just shook his head, and said, "This is amazing," with a tone of disbelief. Christine could not stop smiling and giggling. I fought back tears. Praise God! And thank you for all of your prayers. God is so good. Please share the good news!


And no peeking past this point, Craftster swap partners!

I've been working on a couple of swap packages lately. I got very behind on them, and am working hard to get caught up. I have been ill for the last couple of weeks, and am slowly but surely recovering. Getting a bit stronger every day. The sewing and embroidery I've been working on relaxes me, so all this crafting has been therapeutic and productive!

Here is one item I made the other day. . . a little pencil/art supply pouch. I'm thinking about offering these in my Etsy shop. What do you think?

I'll show you some more items I've been working on in my next post, so please drop by again some time.

Thank you again for everything!
