Scientists who doubt will one day have to come to grips with the faith-based
fact that God allows us to learn scientific principles in the hopes that some of
his children will become one with him--unified not only in his righteousness,
but in his knowledge and abilities to create worlds so that his children may
have the mortal experience necessary to become as eternal as he is himself. If
they wish to achieve that status themselves, they must do their part.
I have never believed that the things of God and the things of science have to
be opposites. I think that God is just the greatest scientist that has ever
been. Seems natural for me to think that God uses sciences that we still have co
concept nor understanding of at this time. That's why they are called
miracles. Anyway, God bless this family and the doctors who help work the daily
miracles in little Jack's life!
It may be "man made" technology but let's not forget Who made man
and his mind so it is able to study and create the life saving technology being
My wife is a nurse in a NICU, and she's always telling me she get's to
witness "miracles". Her co-workers nurses, and doctors share those same
It appears they're relying on good old man made technology, too.
Praying for good results. Keep the faith.
Our grand daughter was born January 2014 exactly at 24 weeks along weighing
exactly 1 lb 9 oz. She is still at the Infant ICU. She is do to go home maybe
next week. Lucky she was NOT born out of town and not so lucky on your part.
Hope Jack won't have problem coming home at this Utah elevation from the
sea level in Virginia. Anyway, congratulation to all of you!
Virginia's a great place to have a baby; he'll be a true southerner,
32 years ago, my wife and I were in a hospital with a 1 lb 6 oz. boy. Tom will
be 33 in September.
Good luck to you. In 1997 my daughter was born weighing 12 oz., and is now
nearly 17 years old and doing great. She is still the smallest baby born in Utah
that I have ever heard of. So there is always hope that things will turn out
I was due to have a little girl in September, but I lost her at 11 weeks
gestation. I wish I had the faith to realize everything will be okay, even
though "okay" doesn't look the way I think it should.
Best wishes for this family! I can't imagine how hard this would be but we
are pulling for this baby.Ironically, babies in the womb at this age
are still aborted.
All the best to this family and their new baby, Jack! Glad to hear that in
spite of the situation, they have found peace and strength from the Atonement.
The peace that comes from the Atonement truly does provide a means to get
through any trial. I'm so grateful for that.
