There and Back Again

I disappeared

for awhile.

We are finally home after a 9 day hospital stay with DD#2.

Stomach bug morphs into nightmare.

Thank the Lord for winter break, which will buy her some time for rest and a slow return to normal eating.

There’s a lot I could say about the faithfulness of God after an experience like this.

Eloquence requires sleep, so I’ll say it this way.

Here’s what I KNOW (not what I think, or what I’ve been taught, or what I imagine—it’s what I KNOW)

Jesus is the One and Only Son of God.

He loves you.

He will hold you.

He is faithful.

He is a Friend who sticks closer than a brother.

He will NOT leave you,

He will do whatever it takes to get your attention and make His presence known in your life.

He wants to forgive you.

He will give you the faith and hope you need, if you ask Him.

He is crazy about you.

He really is enough.

That’s what I know.

Be blessed today,



  1. Missed you.
    Came looking for you a few days ago
    but didn't know where to ask 'are you ok?'
    Sounds to have been a hard couple of weeks;
    Praying that you know His arms around your family.
    Sounds like you do. :-)
    God bless you.
    Love Hx

  2. I am so thankful your girl is going to be ok. For it to require a 9 day stay it must have been really serious. How terrifying, and what a test in the area of trusting God too! Love to you my friend.

  3. Wow!! Nine days is big. I'm so glad she is better. Hope you get some rest!!
