How Great is our God

Have you ever just had a moment where God speaks loudly?

At my office is a young mother who is battling cancer. She is in chemo right now, has lost her hair and to my knowledge is not a Christian. The day we found out about her cancer, I gathered a group of ladies, along with her, and we got in a circle here at work and prayed. It was one of the most moving times in a prayer circle that I have ever experianced.
Today we received a call from her giving us the test results of her latest blood work. 85% of the cancer is gone - PRAISE GOD!! They are going to continue with chemo but she is so optimistic about it. The coolest thing is that us girls, who were together for the original prayer time with her, were all standing together at my desk this morning when we got the news. We had all gotten silent for just a second and the only thing we could hear loud and clear was my radio. The words that were sung in that moment of silence were "How great is our God, sing with me How Great is our God!"

No doubt we knew we had heard a fresh word from Him and knew who we were to give thanks to for this wonderful news!

Ranch or Glue?

Last night we were at the Loop eating dinner. Taylor was very quiet and very occupied with the contents on her plate but because she was so quiet no one was really paying much attention to her. I finally really started watching and saw what she was doing. She was taking her lettuce then pouring ranch on it then turning the lettuce over and pressing down on it. Then she would get another piece and do the same thing. I finally got everyone to look at her and right about that time she looked up at Mark and said "daddy I need more glue!"

I'm probably going to have that kid that eats and sniffs glue in Kindergarten :)

Friday was Trinity's homecoming. The whole day is so much fun. There is a parade at school that every one gets to watch. She was all decked out in her school colors and was so excited that morning!! Her class made little flags and they got to sit out on the curb and wave them for the parade.

Morgan's stats

Morgan went today for his 6 month check-up. He's healthy as an Ox, and as big as one!! He weighed 21.1 lbs and was 27 inches long. When the doctor would push on his belly and bladder Morgan would bust out with this belly-laugh. It was so funny!!
But the doctor did recommend for us to get an appointment with a Pediatric Dermatologist as Morgans face looks like he's been in a battle. He obviously has something wrong, probably eczema. The poor guy wakes up every morning with blood on his pj's and his sheets because he will scratch his face up to pieces during the night. So the doctor told me it would probably take about a month to be seen with the doctor he was referring me to but you know how our God works....we have an appointment tomorrow at 10:30. Hopefully, she can determine what is wrong and give us something to clear it up. Please pray for this as I know it has to hurt my little man and secondly because he is being dedicated on 11/25 and I'd like for his face to be scar free :)
