I keep starting a post and then end up deleting it. Katie still has not heard back regarding the ‘new’ maintenance drug. We continue to trust God has her and she continues to do life!
Yesterday Bob and I took a ‘thankful’ walk, not asking Jesus for anything, just thanking Him. We are so grateful Katie’s less then three weeks away from completing her junior year at Baylor! Even more praise worthy, she’s a business major, with HONORS.... and just landed her first (paid) internship with Vita Coconut Water! Praying she can finish her education on campus next year!?
I woke up a little before 3:00 AM, ya all know how I love the Peace at this time.
I’m in awe this morning.
Crazy how we have lived with so much uncertainty - the circumstances in Katie’s health.... yet He’s compassionately led me to the arms of Hope, day after day!
It’s actually a bit insane to think of how many days, weeks, months and years Katie has had physical pain, emotional upheaval and gut wrenching heartache..... yet our Heavenly Father’s grace and mercy usher in Blessings and Joy above and beyond anything we could ever imagine!
Yep... closing into twelve years, which boggles my mind. Thankful for the gift of time, quality time!!
How extremely grateful I am to have had both my daughter’s home the past year. How I appreciate the silver lining of being in quarantine with my small family - getting to know my children as adults. Feeling sappy this morning.
Falling on my knees acknowledging how BIG my God is. Never in my lifetime will I be able to comprehend how much He loves me, how rich His mercy is, why He’s blessed me and my family so greatly.
Sitting here with my dogs, the humming of silence - by Faith inviting Jesus to use me today, to guide others to Hope, Peace and Joy ~ even when the dark circumstances of life attempt block the view of the Son!
I am a living testimony to the power of prayer! Katie is a living testimony to the power of prayer!
Thank you all for allowing me to share this journey with you all these years!
Thank you for the tears you have shed for my girl, the prayers you have prayed, the support you have provided! YOU have changed my life and that of my family! Forever I am indebted to you. 😍
I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations!
Until Katie sees her children’s children- keep praying!! ... for my precious Melanie too!
We celebrated Bob’s birthday the other night and the laughter my daughters shared was shear poetry! Thank you dear, precious Andrew and my loyal Deborah 💕💕💕💕 An evening sketched into my heart for eternity.
Ya - I know, I know... I sound over the top this morning 🤦🏻♀️ ~ but sincerely overwhelmed by His love and all the unexpected gifts He generously lavishes on me and my family!!
All I can do to repay Him is walk in obedience to His written word, by the power of the Holy Spirit...
Who is like you, Lord God Almighty? You, Lord, are mighty, and your faithfulness surrounds you.
