When a storm is coming, all other birds seek shelter. The eagle alone avoids the storm by flying above it. So, in the storms of life may your heart be like an eagle’s and soar above.” – Author Unknown

Carolyn Isbister knows about the miraculous power within each person.  Here is her story.

Having a womb infection 24 weeks into her pregnancy, Carolyn Isbister gave birth to a premature baby girl.  Dr. Ian Laing, the hospital’s neonatologist, told her that her daughter could not be saved and the hospital did not even help the baby to breathe.  Carolyn could cuddle her daughter but the hospital could do nothing for the tiny infant. Feeling her daughter’s very cold feet, she picked up her tiny daughter and placed her against her own skin to warm her.  The chaplain came and blessed the infant.

Then something miraculous happened. Warmth from Carolyn’s skin set the infant’s heart in motion and it began to beat properly.  Born grey and lifeless, the child began to breathe on her own and her skin turned a healthy pink color.

No one, including the doctors, could believe this was happening.  The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit placed baby Rachel on a ventilator and nurses fed Rachel her Mother’s breast milk through a syringe first then later a tube.  After five weeks on the ventilator, Rachel began to breast feed by herself.

At age four months, baby girl Rachel weighed 8 pounds and went home with her parents. Initially, doctors thought that the lack of oxygen when she was first born had caused brain damage, but there is no evidence of such issue.

“She is doing very well. The doctors had let us know that she was indeed an amazing little girl and loves her cuddles a lot.  Now she sleeps, curled into my torso, for hours.  I’m very glad that it was that first cuddle which saved her life or else she would not be with us today.  I trusted my intuition by picking her up near my chest,” Carolyn Isbister comments.

If you do not believe that you have a miraculous power, please examine your beliefs.  You have the power to love others like Carolyn loved her daughter.

Soar like an eagle over life’s storms.  Harness the miraculous power of love within you and change lives!

Wow, what a powerful story of the miracle this baby experienced, in part due to the faith of her loving mother. This child will now have the opportunity to be a testimony of the power of God in her life. On another note, I join you in your delight in the increase of response to your posts. The devil tries to discourage us like he has with you but once again a higher power has intervened, PRAISE GOD!
