A new day

Hi there,

Michelle here. :) So, today has been a better day. We prayed that God would give us a sign last night which direction we need to support Ryan and it has been clear that she is a fighter and that we need to fight right alongside her still. She has dramatically turned around over the last 24hours and we praise God and thank you all for your prayers!! We are by no means out of the woods and she still needs to still overcome some milestones, but we are headed in a clear direction and we praise God!!!

I read this today and I found this encouraging...

The great thing about life being somewhat messy is that you are "held there by hope, knowing how God's creativity works, slowly, slowly, slowly, but always with surprise. Creation, creative work, never ends up the way we thought it would. It is always a surprise. Creative is by definition something new, and if we knew what the result was we might not be creative." Living the Message

I Corin. 13:12
"We do not yet see things clearly. We are squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it will not be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We will see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us."


  1. We love you and are praying for you all! Baby Ryan and the two of you are touching lives around the world (literally). Friends from all over are praying for all of you. (((HUGS)))

    You know, it is as though this was your Abraham & Isaac moment, laying her down on the alter for the Lord to take but He offer a lamb instead! Glory to God!Genesis 22
