Last month, we had a scare with Moses. After riding his bike to school, he collapsed and had trouble breathing. Fortunately, Caleb happened to be at school, taking Lydia in the car, and attended to Moses during his attack, which seems to have been a combination of dehydration and asthma. Lydia was also with Moses, and she was the one who noticed that at one point he had stopped breathing. He came to, with arousal, but it was touch and go. An ambulance was called, which arrived a long 30 minutes later. With hydration and strong asthma medicine, he improved quickly, though he was weak for days later.
It has taken Moses a while to get back into the swing of school, and his extracurricular activities, but I was thankful to go hear him in the school worship band this past Friday (who knew he could sing?!?!)
Two weeks after his collapse, at a Bible study led by one of his fellow students, Moses recommitted his life to Christ. Are the 2 events related? Hard to know, but we are thankful.
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,
because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
nor will you let your faithful one see decay.
You make known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
Psalm 16: 9-11
