Hi all! I won't bore you with a lengthy update today. Not much is new with us...we are keeping busy with work...poor Jon has been working out in this awful heat...the humidity is the worst! But it's summer and we should just enjoy it because the cold will come sooner or later!:) Anyway...we are still doing good...healing all the time. I still have clients who come in who haven't heard or I run into people on the street and again it's that feeling of feeling bad because I have to tell them what happened...and that makes them feel bad. But at least I can get through that with out tearing up! It's such a joy talking about her and how much we love her...and what an amazing little girl we had on our hands:) A little update on my lump....I went back into the doctor today...he said that it was a lot smaller and that it still just feels like a lymph node that was irritated because of the drainage from my acne...he still was not concerned about it...he said that he has one under his throat that he's had for 30 years! And he said mine might not ever go away completely...and that's okay. So...good news there...now I'll stop worrying about it! And some of you have asked about my Emmalee Wagon Garden...and I'm happy to report that it's doing well...here's a couple pictures to prove it:
Aren't they pretty? I just love all the flowers in her wagon! And again I will leave you with a little snippet of what I've gained from my Bible this week....God's truths and promises just coming out to bless me and Jon...showing us that He does love us and that He is with us. Again I am reading about David...I have finished 1 Samuel though and moved on to 2 Samuel. Saul had died and David was talking to the the men of Judah...they told David that it was actually the men of Jabesh Gilead (and really...who does know how to pronounce some of these names in the Bible!) that buried Saul...he was very pleased with these men and wanted to tell them so. In verse 6 he says to them, "And now may the Lord show kindness and truth to you." I just feel like this is what God is doing for us now. He's sending us kindness through other people...by the letters and e-mails you send us...by you asking how we may need help...just by little simple gestures...by my lump not being anything and giving me a total peace of mind about that (and some of you know that I tend to over worry about things!)...etc... And we know that He's sent us His truth already...the truth that we will see Emmalee again...the truth that this world is not the end...and even though we miss her...she's okay and she will be waiting for us! That is an awesome TRUTH! Well that's all for today folks! I hope you have a wonderful week...and I know that I've eluded to it for weeks but Emmalee's stone should be done by next week for sure! Be looking for pictures!
