God Heals

Wow! As we were driving home from visiting family at Christmastime, I noticed Maggie was coughing. As we were unpacking the car, Maggie was showing signs that she was not feeling so well. It was not typical for her to lay down on the floor to rest or just climb up in my lap and lay her head down. She felt a little warm, but most of all, she had this wheezing sound. We decided that she needed to be seen soon. We decided to head on out to the urgent care center and loaded up everybody back in the car. After dropping Sydney off at my parent's house, we soon arrived at the urgent care center. They pretty much took us on back. After all the tests (which took a while), they determined that Maggie had RSV. After two breathing treatments (Maggie loved them), she was doing so good that we went home. We thought we would get through this and be done, but it didn't. We went through this cycle of being well for 3-5 days then sick for 2 weeks for at least 2 months. We even had to go back to the urgent care center one night because she was struggling to breathe. Our church believes God heals and offers a time for you to present your requests with others. I knew I needed to ask God to heal Maggie so I presented her to God. Well, God does heal because Maggie has not had these issues again. Thank you, Father!

Greetings after a garage sale and sprinkler play

Hmmm...I'm not sure I'm going to be good at this, but I thought I would give it a whirl. I love to read other people's blogs so I thought would join in the fun. Summer is a comin' so I shouldn't be so busy. We had a garage sale today and made some money through all the sweat (literally). It's amazing that people will try to talk you down from a quarter to dime on a plastic cup. Wow! If you need it that bad, then just take it. Mom and I needed a rest so we sent Sydney outside to play in the sprinkler. Oh, what fun! We needed to water the yard anyway. What I really need is a nap after all this fun, but I don't think it's going to happen. Anyway...I hope to continue with this. What a neat way to capture our life.
