Remembering to praise Him through the long nights.

Their breathing, shallow.
Their smiles, gone.
Their forehead, hot.
I drove off our farm
with the mothers instinct
that something was just
not right.
The girls had to go in
the hospital. Their little
bodies fighting something
bigger than I could fix.
A prayer...
A friend who gave her socks to
my cold feet...:)
A friend who fed my family at home.
A daughter who stood
all day and night along side
me and her sisters.
Phone calls from all our friends..
A drop off of food
and goodies from
Nana....
A houseful at the farm with
daddy keeping the fort down..
I lift up my heart in gratitude to Thee
for this day's happiness..
Not tomorrows, but this days.
Finding joy in all things:
For the mere joy of living,
For all the sights and sounds around me.
For arms to hold the sick, comfort
them and whisper in their ears.
For the sweet peace of the country and the pleasant
bustle of the town.
For the comforting beeping of machines
that let you know they're breathing.
For roads to walk and the strength and endurance to walk it..
I thank you Lord for the restored health of our little
girls.
I pray you were glorified.




Enjoying some quiet prayer time..
Together at last..










First class ticket out of here.
Headed home to the farm...





Home with daddy at Last..

His arms waiting!


Channie giving the thumbs up
that her sisters are home and well.




Jo said he wasn't taking any chances..

*No greater love* hath a friend who would lay down her own socks (on a cold winter's night) for her sister.

Robin I am so sorry to hear about the girls...I did not know until yesterday that they had been sick, much less in the hospital. So thankful they are home and better. Please continue to pray for my brother-in-law, they have moved him to "critical" and on life support! I know that God is bigger than any of this and we are praying for a miracle! Love you sister!
