A Little big Miracle

G is teething right now - as in, three teeth are coming in at the same time.  Last night he had a very high temperature and was extremely uncomfortable, crying out in pain every 1/2 hour. 

This from a little boy who never really truly cries unless something is horribly wrong - I hear it maybe every one-two weeks (or for an hour on the plane out to Chicago when overtired because he couldn't sleep in the new conditions- fun times).

At midnight I went to bed, asking Lance to come home immediately to take over, as I was exhausted.  He kindly did so, but was unable to administer a priesthood blessing for the healing of the sick, as G would not hold his head still.

At 1:00 a.m., Lance asked me to take over again.  I happily did so, but after calming G, I brought his head within reach of Lance's hands and Lance uttered the sacred words of both the anointing and consecration blessings.  I can't remember the words uttered, but I remember it being beautiful and G looking up at me serenely, holding still and somehow understanding that something was happening.

I noticed in withdrawing G from Lance's hands that he was not quite so hot.  I then put him down, expecting him to cry out again in a few minutes. 

Next thing I knew, it was 7:30 a.m., and I was blinking at the sunlight that entered our bedroom.  Immediately, I warm feeling of gratitude and awe swept over me - gratitude for the power of the priesthood in our home, Lance for being worthy to exercise it, a sweet baby boy who was seemingly instantly healed of his fever and pain by its power, and for six precious hours of sleep.
