I know it has been awhile :) Most days I get a comment or email letting me know we are being prayed for and thought of and missed. And I am so grateful for those prayers and the care of so many.
We are all doing well...well, except for Daniel who's in the hospital right now. He's been out of town working and got a severe case of pancreatitis. Thankfully, he's working with his brother in law and he got him to the ER early Tuesday morning. They thought at first he was having a heart attack, but later determined it was abdominal and the tests pointed to his pancreas. He's stable, but in a lot of pain, and on a complete fast in order to let his pancreas heal. He's about 3 1/2 hours from us. I just want to be with him, and am hoping to get down there by this evening. Please pray.
Timothy and Elijah graduated this year, and last week a dear friend of mine, who is also an amazing photographer, got together with us for a photo shoot. We hadn't had a family picture taken in 3 years, so this was so special. She took individuals of the children, shots of the brothers, the sisters, Daniel and I, and several of Timothy and Elijah for their Senior pictures. Sweet pictures, fun pictures, and everything in between. I think we were out there for about 3 hours. I can't wait to get our disc and will be sure to share some with you all when I get them.
Timothy is heading to Bible college this week. If Daniel's still in the hospital, I'll be driving him there myself. I'm so very proud, excited, sad, and missing him all at once.
We started our new school year last week, but are taking a break this week with Daniel's situation and getting Timothy ready to go. We'll start back up, Lord willing, after Labor Day and am excited about another year to learn and grow together.
The path has been long and hard, but there are so many beautiful sights along the way. We appreciate your prayers so much. God is so very faithful and so good!
