Our Miracle

I truly believe that miracles happen everyday.  Sometimes they are little and sometimes they are earth moving.  The other day I witnessed a miracle!  It was one of my busy Mondays.  I did about 10 loads of laundry and cleaned the house and a bunch of other stuff.  I was busy!  The boys were going to be getting off the bus in a few minutes and I was getting ready to pick them up at the bus stop.  I only pick them up on Mondays because right after school they have piano lessons at my Mom's house.  Anyways, Devin and Lacey walked outside to get in the car.  I was right behind them with the piano books.  Devin climbed into the car and didn't know Lacey was following him.  The door shut right before she could climb in.  I heard her scream and I went running.  Her poor little hand was shut halfway in the door and the door was shut all the way!  I ran and opened the door.  I swear I thought that she broke every bone in her little hand.  It makes me sick just thinking about it.  Her hand was literally bent in half!  I ran into the house and held her as I sat on the stairs.  I prayed hard to know what to do.  Devin came in the house and when he saw her hand, he looked like he would throw up!  He was heart broken.  He wanted to help do something, so I asked him what he thought he should do.  He said that he wanted to say a prayer for her.  We knelt down at the bottom of the stairs.  It was the most touching thing.  I held Lacey, who was still crying, while Devin said the sweetest, most simple prayer.   He asked that her hand would feel better and that she would be OK.  He said this little prayer through tears and sobs of his own.  After he said "Amen" is when the miracle happened.  Immediately after the prayer, Lacey stopped crying and I literally watched her hand go back to normal.  It was amazing! There was only a small bruise line across her hand.  I couldn't believe it!  We offered a prayer of thanks and went on our way.  Lacey used her hand as if nothing ever happened!  It was truly a miracle!  I know that our Heavenly Father watches over us constantly and is aware of everything we need.  I am so thankful for a quick answer to our prayers.
