Another way this has been a reminder for me this week is through a little 5 year old girl. For those of you that followed my blog last year, Miley came by for a visit. I have included pictures of her scars. God healed her and her parents were faithful to keep bringing her. We tried several different ways of treating her burns, but God chose to do so much slower than we really wanted. His timing was perfect. A lot of people formed good bonds and were able to pour into this family's lives.
Miley graduated kindergarten with an extremely high average, despite all of the school she missed seeking treatment for her burns. It is probably the highest average I've ever seen. This may not seem like a big accomplishment for most, but kindergarten graduation is a BIG deal here. Many don't get to attend school and those that do must sacrifice much to be able to send their kids to school. If they attend, many don't go on after kindergarten. Miley has a great future ahead of her and I look forward to seeing what all God has in store for this strong willed, never back down, sassy, beautiful, full of joy blessing I've been able to form a friendship with.
