AMAZING GRACE 🎚 Yesterday afternoon, my husband DJ & I arrived from an overnight trip to Sorsogon. Our son David welcomed us at our condo lobby… when out of the blue, he just started having a full blown seizure! Now, seizures can be common for kids with autism but David has never really had them. He has only had one scary episode when he was 7 yrs old. Thank God for my husband & the first responders of our condo lobby. They were fast thinkers, equipped to assist & knew what to do to make sure he would stay alive. And all I did was shout the name of our Lord Jesus Christ non-stop, asking HIM to heal & save David. And this is why I am sharing this. I thank our Lord Jesus Christ for saving David yesterday. David slowly woke up and we rushed him to the ER. I thank God his memory and faculties are perfect. I thank Dr. Francis Dimalanta @fxdmd , his pedia with autism expertise. Doc Francis recently survived COVID19 & he shared that all he could do during his darkest times was call on Jesus too. David is OK now and undergoing a 24 hour video EEG which helps monitor brain movement. Our goal is to prevent this from happening again. What real FAITH & LIFE LESSON did God teach me today? There is POWER in the name of Jesus Christ! 🎚 It doesn’t matter who you are, what church you go to, whether you think you’re a good or bad person – calling on the name of Jesus changes everything! 😇 To God be the glory 🥰 Hug your kids today! Tell your family & friends how special they are! Appreciate LIFE ❤️ #sept142020
