It's About Family


Last week was a whirl of events landing us in the hospital with my five year old son, Joshua having swollen glands in his neck with the potential to close his windpipe and an infection growing in his body, all caused by a simple cold.

After six days of being hospitalized, he is finally home!!! We are so happy to be together as family again and so grateful for those all of you who prayed and supported us through this time.

Today Joshua's grandma is making a huge Thanksgiving feast that we are especially grateful to be a part of this year, especially since the doctor's thought we would still have to be in the hospital for the holiday. We are so grateful to enjoy family being together, the love we share and of course, a little of this:





Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers!

Everyone please pray!!! I came home today and my son Christian is throwing up. I am praying that he doesn't have anything serious and we won't end up at the ER again. :(

I pray your son is better. My daughter has problems with swollen glands. We found out when she was young that antibiotics didn't help her she had to take penicillin. I'm glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Doylene

Mrs. June,

Oh dear! I had no idea that your sweet boy was in the hospital!

I'm very glad that he's out, and that the Lord provided a way for you all to be together during Thanksgiving. I pray that the Lord will continue to heal Joshua so that he won't have to go back to that dreaded hospital. I am also praying that Christian will get better soon too, and that God will give you the strength to get through all these illnesses your family is currently enduring.

May God continue to bless your family and keep them well and healthy.
