Peace, Love & Joy

Thank you all for your prayers yesterday. Aaron had the same reaction but your prayers may have caused it to last a shorter amount of time and his heart rate did not get as high as it did on Monday although it did remain elevated longer but not at such a dangerously high level. The Lord works in ways that we can not always see and I know that he was with him.

Aaron looked really good yesterday. Much of the swelling that he has been experiencing was gone and he seems so small. Susan was able to get down for a visit yesterday and lovingly remarked that this was quite an extreme way to get such drastic spa results, all new skin and major weight loss.

My next post will be next Monday. Thank you all for you vigilant concern and prayers for Aaron and his family. You have all held us up with your prayers so that we have had peace, love and joy even in the midst of this most difficult time. Knowing that there are so many of you out there that understand what Aaron is going through and are helping to shoulder the burden is truly evidence of Gods loving grace. We know that so many of you carry prayers in your hearts day in and day out just as we do and for that we are so blessed and eternally grateful.

Friday is Dana's birthday. If you get a minute please drop by her blog and wish her a happy birthday. She and her family will be down here with all the kids helping Angie over the weekend.

We hope you all have a love filled Valentines day and again thank you from the bottom of all of our hearts for your prayers, messages and good wishes.

Much love and God bless,

    I'm praying that God gives you strength during this most difficult time. I pray that God heals your son and restores his health. I also pray for the doctors and nurses who care for your son.

Please tell Aaron we are pulling for him and know he will be better soon. We miss him dearly and enjoyed the pictures you have posted of Aaron and the kids. We have missed everyone!
