How great is our God? - Aria MacDonald

How great is our God?

The MacDonald family, smiling happily on a very important day.

Today we baptised our son and Aria’s brother at church. Of course there were lots of tears, mainly from me and Hamish but lots of misty eyes in the congregation. We remembered Aria’s baptism, which was held at Auckland hospital in the chapel. At that point we didn’t know about bowel transplants and thought she was going to die. We also thought there was a 50% chance other kids we had would be born with the same horrid disease. We were to lose our baby girl and remain childless… but that wasn’t to be.

Today we have Aria with us, who, has a hard road ahead of her, but she is such a huge blessing in our lives and we love her so much. AND we have another blessing, Asher, who has brought us great joy.

“The LORD has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.”
- Psalm 126:3

    awesome! :) this song was playing in the background as i read your post:

    Everlasting, Your light will shine when all else fades
    Neverending, Your glory goes beyond all fame
    And the cry of my heart is to bring you praise
    from the inside out
    Lord my soul cries out

    -’From the Inside Out’

    An attention-grabbing dialogue is worth comment. I believe that you must write more on this subject, it may not be a taboo subject however usually people are not sufficient to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers
