{family update}







































today has been hard on my mommy heart.
on my way home from the hospital yesterday i started feeling really dizzy & toasty. then a sweet friend brought us dinner last night &  diagnosed me {100% correctly} with mastitis {she also totally papered me & got me set up on the couch & cleaned our house. SUCH a blessing} its actually not as scary as it sounds & i'm on antibiotics now, so hopefully with some more rest I'll be good to go tomorrow.

it was incredibly hard being away from my little man all day today. i don't think i could go another whole day without him…

luckily grandmoms have been able to fill in for me in the meantime, & daniel is with him tonite.

we also got {hopefully} the very last bit of news about isaac - some tests came back late last week.
it seems like its just been one thing after another with our brave little boy & every time we finally can wrap our minds around one thing we are surprised with something new & thats definitely discouraging. as much as we are trying to trust God with this -we have our moments of weakness & we've shed a good bit of tears. but as difficult as things can seem right now, isaac has made our family richer. god picked the perfect little boy for us.

we have lots to think about now - but they're mostly future things. i'm not quite ready for that post yet, though. {sorry! not trying to leave you all hanging} but for now our little man is doing well & we're still working on his eating to get him home. maybe just maybe by my birthday ;)



"You can be in no circumstances in which the Lord can not help you, in which he will not help you, if you look simply to him, rest on him, and wait for him. For every condition in which you may be placed, there is a promise; by that promise the Lord stands pledged to appear for you and help you; he is ever ready to deliverer you; only he will have you believe his word, exercise confidence in him, plead the promise at his throne, and wait for its fulfillment. Wait, then, on the Lord at all times. Times will change, creatures will vary, but the Lord remains always the same. In youth and health, in manhood and prosperity, in old age and its infirmities, we should wait on the Lord. He will adapt his mercies to us, make all his goodness pass before us, and cause all things to work together for our good. He will never leave us, change his views of us, or withhold his tender mercies from us. He is faithful to his word, true to his character, and full of love to his people.

Whatever change there may be in creatures, there is no change in him. Health may give way to sickness, plenty to poverty, strength to weakness, and life to death, but he is the same. With him there is no variableness, neither shadow of a turn. Therefore, "wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord."

  8. Issac, you do not understand yet how your life has touched so many people. . . .the ministry that God has already given you and your sweet family. I tell everyone about you and everyone falls instantly in love with you. We are drawn to your love, courage and bravery. You are such a blessing!!! You inspire me to trust God that He has a perfect plan for me just as He does for you. Thank you for the lessons you are already showing me and so many others. You are loved and prayed for by so many. Your mother writes so beautifully with truth and honesty. I can't wait to see how God weaves the threads of your little life now into the beautiful tapestry of His big picture plan for your life. I feel that God has great things in store for you and your parents. For tonight, I ask God to help you to rest well and grow strong so you can go home soon.

  13. Mindy - I struggle with mastitis (especially in the beginning, I got it several times). I think some people are just more liable to get it. You can take a soy lecithin supplement to help prevent the occurrence. So sorry for all you're going through. Your family is always in my prayers.
