Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our family blog. This may be your first visit here, or you may be a friend from across the globe, or family that we have just seen. Who ever you may be, thanks for taking the time to read about our little family, and all we are learning on this adventure the Lord has called us to live! Here you will find, the random thoughts, funny stories, prayer requests, and the journey our family and Jack is on with his battle with Leukemia.

.quick change.

Last night Jack was up pretty much all night (he only slept between 3 and 5 am) with ear pain and mouth pain. Instead of doing another middle of the night ER trip like last week, we are taking to the clinic today. And instead of waiting until Friday to do his blood work and going a second time in one week, that will also be done this afternoon.

We hope it is just another ear infection and something a little dose of antibiotics can take care of, and that the appointment will go quickly and smoothly. Jordan is taking him now, so that I get a break from the hospital and another Dr. visits for a little.

I would trade places with Jack in a heartbeat though. I hate seeing the tears in his eyes and his pleas to not go to the Dr. I know that one day, this will be behind us. For now just praying that Jack be more aware of the love we have for him and the nearness of God, than the pain he is currently experiencing.

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" Psalm46:1
"When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who know my way." Psalm 142:3

"When I am afraid, I will trust in you" Psalm 56:3-4

"He will tend his flock like a shepherd; he will gather the lambs in his arms; he will carry them in his bosom, and gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

Thanks for praying friends.

I will be praying for you and Jack today, friend. May your heart be strengthened by the prayers of MANY around you.
Hebrews 12:3 -- Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.

Love you,
