“…consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”
~Rom 8:18

That verse speaks volumes to me today. It reminds me that He is still at work and will never be done until He calls me home! The suffering here on earth is only temporary…This life is but a vapor compared to eternity….

Doesn’t that make your heart smile!

Every time I want to give up, throw my hands in the air and shout “I give!”, something happens and I am reminded that I am no where near in control of my life.

And that is a good thing.

Anyways, onto Emma! Today is turning out to be a very good day. She is stable enough to do the swallow study, so we are having that done this afternoon. She is only on 1 liter of oxygen during the day and on bi-pap at night. She will most likely need bi-pap at night at home also. The sore on her nose is from her old bi-pap mask. She has a new one that is for older kids and is gentler on the bridge of her nose.

Here is her with her bi-pap mask and pinky pig (who she laughs hysterically at!)

We both can not thank you enough for your continued prayers.

    YEA for good days!!!!! She looks so good! Continued prayers. Love to you both!

  3. Her Eyes Say “I LOVE YOU MOM!”
    And I love you both!


  4. You both looked beautiful. I have been following you and your daughter for a while now and it looks like you’ve come a long way. I will continue to pray at The Lighthouse of Prayer. In Matt. 19:26 Jesus says “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” To God be the glory for what He has already done and for what He will do.

  6. Been praying for you lots and lots. Most specifically I am praying for relief, in whatever form you most need it. Sending you love from Canada.
