Why Lilly Has Diabetes...

When Lilly was first diagnosed with diabetes, I was like, "Why the heck does MY kid have this??" I didn't take it very well. Over the course of time, it has gotten easier and I can say, "Why not my child??" I wouldn't have chosen it, but if her having diabetes draws someone else closer to God, then so be it. He could have let Lilly die, but he chose to save her. For that we are very grateful.

Great post! I know God is going to do great things through Lilly's life. He works all things together for GOOD! We just can't see the big picture yet. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for posting this scripture . . My husband battled diabetes his entire life and yes he made a difference in this world with the people he touched through his life. Blessings to Lily and your family, Sandy:O)

Well my daughters do not have diabetes but Auberne` has heart issues. Had open heart surgery as a baby and will have more throught out her life. So I can understand how you have felt. I just have had to let go of Auberne` and trust that God see all and I rest in Him. He is so much smarter than me ;-)

I absolutely agree with you on this. I think about it all the time with Addie, too. She's going to take her experience and run with it. And the rest of us around her are, too. We're going to be changed... for the good... and we're excited to see what those changes come to be.
