Great Things ~ An Update

The LORD has done
Great things!

We stand amazed at
HIS providential care over
our precious Austin (and all of us)
in the past (nearly) two months.

The road ahead is still a long one.
We will not know the full picture for
perhaps another year or more.
But, God is already there.
We have nothing to fear.

All things are possible
with our Great God!

We rest in His perfect plan.
He does all things well.
His ways are always best.

"For with God nothing
shall be impossible."
~ Luke 1:37 ~

Currently ~
Amazing things are happening.

We praise HIM for HIS Gracious
and Loving Hand upon us.
We daily marvel at all that HE has done!

Austin gained 15 lbs in 5 weeks.

He went from being bed-ridden (in the hospital)
to being able to walk 45 minutes (or more) non-stop!
His speed and stamina increase
nearly every day.

He has been eating us out of house and home ~
Just like a *typical* teenage boy.
I cannot begin to tell you how

The regular routines of being both
a violin student and teacher have begun again.
School work is being tackled.
Siblings are being teased ~
And they are teasing back. :)

Austin has even been able to take on household
responsibilities once again ~
Currently, he's my vacuum guy. :)

"O magnify the LORD with me,
and let us exalt HIS Name together."
~ Psalm 34:3 ~

Thank you to each one of you who
has prayed for Austin.
The LORD continues to daily give
His grace and strength.
He does the unseen.
The Amazing.

As this journey continues,
I plan to post updates ~
The LORD willing.

Thank you so much for the
kindness and love shown
to us in so many tangible ways.
We appreciate each one of you!
We are blessed beyond measure.

In HIS Love,
