Busy Bee's

I feel like we have been on super speed alot lately. We have been going non-stop, and it isn't really that bad until you slow down and realize how tired you are and how much you have been going. I will not bore you with alot of talking just show you a ton of pictures. Enjoy...

Three great reasons to have a thankful heart today!

   This Morning I woke up with a heavy heart. I woke up this morning thinking of how much lately I have been doing nothing but asking God for this or for that and haven't been thanking him for all he has already done. Instead, of being short tempered because Annabelle was up alot the night before I need to be thankful. Thankful for her life, thankful that she is nursing and I am able to provide just what she needs. Instead of being fearful of Gracie's next treatment I need to thank God for her. She is a huge blessing. Thankful that we found out about her malformation, thankful that she didn't go into heart failure after birth, thankful she is responding well to the treatments thus far, thankful the problem will one day be corrected. Instead of always being in a hurry and having the mind set, "Just let me do it cause I can do it quicker", be thankful the kids want to do things for themselves and want to help me do things. Yeah, it may take ten times longer but that's okay.

 Philippians 4:4-7
"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

"Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful singing." Psalm 100:1-2

"I will give thanks to the Lord according to His righteousness, And will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High."
Psalm 7:17

"Be joyful always; pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Jesus Christ."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

   On a side note last week we had a meeting with Gracie's surgeon Dr. Turner. He told us that something did change on her MRI we had recently since the last one we had in July. One of her jugular veins that he tried to go in and open up but had already closed off and shut down is now opening up by itself. He told us not to get our hopes up that it will probably close back off. Well, I chose not to think that way, I choose to believe that it was not just a coincidence that God is bigger then that and he had his hand on her. Pray with us for her upcoming treatment on November 2nd. Pray that the jugular will continue to open and she will respond well to this treatment unlike the previous one.  Thank you all.

Putting our "new trick" to practice

Well, Thomas and Gracie put their "new trick" to practice in the pond behind our house. Both of them caught several fish and loved every minute of it. It was so much fun to watch and see the excitement on their faces.
