Latest Journal Update

New Year!!!

I am truly sorry it has been so long since I have updated! Since my last update lots has happened :-) let's see if we can get caught up! 
 The prayer service Brian was really nice! We had a handful of our friends and family who usually come not be able to make it but then we had some new faces so it was very nice!  If any of you have ever come to our prayer service you know that Brian will talk a little bit at the beginning and then I end up talking and praying. This year Brian had centerstage  Hahaha! Which he should!
 Definitely was not planned but it was perfect! This prayer time is so special to us as it brings friends and family and supporters of Brian and our family together to thank God for the blessings He has given us to continue to ask for complete healing for Brian.  Though December 21st is a sad day in this sense for our family, the prayer service definitely brings some light to it! 
 Christmas was really nice! It's been so long  we have had a baby in the house! 
 Celebrated at a lot of birthdays within the family since Christmas...Tommy, my dad, Ms Bev, Jennifer, Grier Marie, Brittney and now...We are into February and  Emmie Claire will be ONE  tomorrow! I can't believe it... This entire year has been a year that I never would have never believed! Never in a million years would I have thought that we would have another child or a baby girl.  Jacob Michael absolutely adores her, which is such a blessing... We will celebrate her birthday on Sunday!  I promise to post pictures that evening...
 So we are continuing with speech therapy and Brian's visit to Callaway's but we have also started a new type of therapy a little before December.  We are going to continue with therapy for a while praying that God can use it and the therapists to help continue Brian's healing. Mr Tommy has really taken a big part in this by doing the exercises with him for at the week. 
 Brian is doing OK with the day to day bouts of depression... He has his  good moments and definitely bad...  As do I  hahaha
Besides Brian being able to see,if there was anything I could to fix for him it would probably be the depression... It truly breaks my heart for him...
 As we began 2016  Brian and I promised each other that we would pray more together. Going to God,  laying our hearts in front of Him... Asking for His direction and for His mercy.  I know that I will pray throughout the day and  I know Brian does...but Praying together as husband and wife is definitely something that we have slacked on... You know, as time goes on and Brian is still not healed in the sense that we hoped he would be,  It can definitely lead to more depression and doubt... Praying that we can become stronger as a family this year... continuing to trust  I am God's power and His Will...
I really can't thank all of you enough for continuing to check the website and praying for us. I am praying that this is an amazing year of change for our family. Praying God will continue to show us mercy and that he would allow Brian  find happiness in where we are... But never losing sight of God's amazing power to completely heal him. 

 Please continue to lift Brian up in your prayers. As always, he loves getting emails sent to him
Coachbhess@gmail.com
 Please continue to pray for Brian's complete healing...especially his sight... 

 Heavenly Father,  thank you for the many, many blessings you have given us... Help us to be who you want us to be Lord... To come to you every day not just giving you our list of needs but listening to what you would have for our family... Lord, we know that you were in control and trust and Your faithfulness.   I continue to lift up Brian, asking for you to heal him completely. Restore him completely from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet. I ask these things in your sons name.

Amen
I love you Brian... I love you Daddy
Kimen, Jacob Michael and Emmie Claire

Dear Brian, Kimen, Jacob and Emmie Claire,

What a joy to see an update in the journal! It is truly amazing looking back how important this journal has been for everyone. It is great to know how much you have improved over the years Brian. I know with an injury, time seems endless and long, but truly it is fast and the years go by so quickly. Children bring so much life into a home and a family. They are really what make the years seem so short.
Depression is far worse than eyesight could ever be. The struggle that a person that is depressed goes through is huge. I pray if Brian doesn't have counseling in this area Kimen that you find it for him. They are many professionals and some are Christians so their medical knowledge combined with their love of God can perhaps help Brian look at life with a new view. There is so much available on audio discs. Depression puts you in a box and some people can't find their way out on their own.
Hard to believe Emmie Claire is almost a year old! What a huge joy she is to to all. You are so blessed with a son and a daughter!
Sorry we missed the special time of prayer at your home. It is great that there were many new faces to see Brian this year and that Brian did so much - wow! That is awesome Brian!
Keep believing and moving forward.
Love,
Harvey and Elaine
