Carol Day 28

(Photos: Our daughters laying hands on Carol and praying for her; girls with a friend) Carol was proud of her muscles today! There is visible improvement and all the girls complimented Carol too when she flexed. 
We were glad to be outside in the beautiful sun just enjoying visiting with Momma  today. 
Part of the blessing God has brought out of this crisis is the spiritual development in all of our girls. Teah and Siena (age 11, twins) are praying with more maturity and focus than before and even our youngest, Sofie, age 7, continually gives glory to God for His healing of Momma. 
I know what the Apostle John meant when he said, 3Jn 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the Bible's truth. 
It has been a long month of emotions and daily driving. I was pretty excited today thinking that in another day, I'll have regained 4+ hours of my day (2 hours of driving and 2 hours of visiting, & some homeschooling).  Carol will obviously not take on full homeschool duties and she cannot yet drive, so I'll still be available to help, but now I get to return a significant portion of my focus to our sweet church and to missions (rescheduling my Haiti team outreach, and going to encourage the church in Turkey).
Thank you for all who have kept us strong by walking with us in the truth and by being dear friends, Pastor Craig

You don't know me.I was one of the ones calling out while you were in the valley of the shadow ...

While I do realize you are coping with much..I simply wanted to tell you that the miracle of The Lord of answered prayer has given me so much hope ,when he heard our cries for you.

Where as you were a beautiful woman,now you share the Majesty of Him .Rejoice

Daughter of The King ,now you bear a family resemblance.He was wounded. Wear your crown in His Victory ! You are greatly loved.

Thank-you for making these posts of Carol's recovery. I have cried and laughed and had so many thoughts reading each post. Prayer is an amazing thing. Best to all of you. Miss seeing you all in church.

The sacrifice of hours of driving and visiting and homeschooling is may be a lost but the gain is the lovely life of Carol back with us! Praise to Him!
