Rough Night and Lazy Day (Day 3 of 13)

We were hoping to ask our friends if we could tag along to Elizabeth and Jacob's tournament today.  I mean...seriously?! How cool would this tournament be?



Both of them placed! We are so proud of the hard work they've 
done to get to this point!!!

Last night didn't exactly turn out how we planned though.  After over two months, having his casts changed and altering the position (stretching) of his feet, Timothy was in pain last night.  During the day he is busy, so barely mentions it.  At night, it was one of the harder nights that he has had.

You would never guess by looking at him today.

He watched a bit of Netflix today (Bob the Builder and Mater's Tall Tales).

We laid around all day, took a nap, did a few chores.

Yes, if you had stopped by in the middle of the day, you would have found me
watching a video with Timothy while I was wearing sunglasses.  I have just generic
glasses that protect my eyes from glare (they get tired easy), that have decided to 
play Hide and Seek.

Hung out with the cat...

His name is Gumbo.  Timothy calls him Gumby (chuckle). 
A wonderful woman from Church, Elaine, has been coming
to feed him.  I wish I had taken a picture.  She has a
gift with animals and is SUPER sweet!

The meds couldn't touch the pain last night, so we appreciate prayers for the pain in his feet.  We want to go to Church tomorrow, but we have to wait and see how Timothy does.  Please also pray for my strength.  My body physically just feels weak...tired right now, when I need it stronger than it has been in a long time.  When he is fully casted, I will need to be able to call on that strength.  It may be lack of sleep, but I could use the prayers none the less.

Sarah sent me some pictures of a few of the kids, hubby, and Isabella last night.  They make my heart happy.  Thought you might enjoy them as well.

Aunt Anna has Isabella's attention.

Here are  our prayer requests:

Immediate:
*Ease to the pain in Timothy's feet.
*Physical strength for Kat

General Medical Trip Prayer Requests:
*That the surgery goes better than ever expected and that God guides the surgeons hands and decisions. (Dr. VB)
*That there is minimal blood loss.
*That the casting is the least of extremes necessary (not splits position) and there is no swelling.
*That pain is less than expected and managed well.
*For Timothy to emotionally do well through this, trusting us.
*For healing to be thorough and no further surgeries necessary for his hips.
*For the trip back to be "doable" and very uneventful.
*I ask for prayers as well, for me.  Please pray I make the right decisions and am able to rest and stay well.
*Please pray for the family at home to stay safe and for it to be a peaceful time for them.

Adoption:
*Please pray our LOA comes in this week.
*Please pray God touches hearts and we can meet this matching grant in the next few weeks.
*Please pray God protects Grace and Glory.

Others:
*Please pray for the Smith family at the loss of their precious Daniel.
*Please pray for the Kelly family.  This young family suffered the loss of the mother, father, and two of their children.  Please pray for their two remaining children and grandmother who survived the fire.  I cannot imagine.
*Please pray for my friend "M" who has a new blessing and is in the process of transition.  Please pray for NO hiccups between the many parties involved.
*Please pray for my friend "K" and her husband and child.  They are at the date of when their baby should've been born (who went to be with Jesus). 
*Please pray for many in the battle of discouragement/feeling of failure.  This seems to be the tactic the master of lies is using with MANY right now.  It's dark and a twisting that satan likes to do.  Please pray protection for all those facing this right now.
*Please pray for Brandi (someone precious to me) who is facing surgery on her leg right now, that it goes perfectly.

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23

We continue to ask for prayerful support as we seek to meet our matching grant with LifeSong for Orphans.  We raise $4000 and they will double it.  We cannot use any of our own money.  Money can be donated online or a check can be sent (with our family name and number on it) sent directly to them.  The directions are on the same link below.  We have been told to expect (if normal can be expected) our next paper for the girls within the week.

  1. Thanks so much for posting, even while away from home! We are praying much for Timothy and you during this time, and it blesses me tremendously to "see" how things are coming! I just love Timothy...and you all!

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
