99 Balloons

This 6 min. video deeply moved me. With a little boy who just past 3 months old, it was probably more impacting.
Eliot was born with an undeveloped lung, a heart with a hole in it and DNA that placed faulty information into each and every cell of his body. However, that could not stop the living God from proclaiming Himself through this boy who never uttered a word.
In the midst of heartbreaking tragedy, this family found the presence of God strengthening, comforting, and guiding them. Their story reminds us to seek God and endure our struggles rather than blame Him for our hardships.

Watch the video here.

Wow, I had forgotten that. I am sure you can relate then. I praise the Lord for His grace on you and your family through all of this.
