Migrane and Sisters !!!

My eyes are about to close due to pain ...  3 hours spent today at Vandy getting Elijah cleared from his skull fracture in December, trying to keep Maggie from doing flips over the couch onto her head, answering (to the best of my ability) questions about Haiti today on email, texting, and facebook, and then to top it off my sister Suzanne is having a hard day ... You know the verse in the bible that talks about a friend that sticks closer than a brother ??? It is so true ... I hurt today because she hurts today ... There is so much in life that has changed for them  ... So many new routines, precautions, and learning in the moment about sweet Josie Love's HIV status ... I am so proud of Suzanne and how she handles each day ... She has a deep strength with in her ... She is a giving person to others and always has your back ... I want to lift her up today and let her know that she is never alone ... I am in her corner ... I will stand w/ her as she faces much over the years to come with educating people on HIV, empowering others to take that first step to adoption, and challenging others to care for the LEAST OF THESE ...

JC TODAY SAYS ... "Depending only on ME (Lord) may feel like walking on a tightrope, but there is a safety net underneath: the everlasting arms.  So don't be afraid of falling."

Bad days may bring on a Migrane, but the LORD brings comfort !!!! LET'S NOT GROW WEARY in the RACE marked out before us by the LORD !!!

I just got my camera fixed and can now post a super cute picture of Suzanne, Katie, and Myself ... Yep, you got it ... Katie snuck in for a few days to see her family and we got to hang w/ our sister ... Miss her so much !!!! SISTERS ARE A TRUE GIFT FROM THE LORD ... Let yours know that you love them!

I think and pray for all three of you often. LOVE THE PICTURE! Read this quote recently by Elizabeth Elliot and thought of what the Lord is doing through you three.
One of the nicest things any of the listeners to my broadcast, "Gateway to Joy" has written to me came from a little girl. "You make me brave." Sometimes I wonder what has happened to words like courage and endurance. What reason is there in our feel-comfortable society ever to be brave? Very little, and when you think about it, we miss it, don't we? To be really brave is to lay oneself open to charges of hypocrisy....Moses charged Joshua to be strong and very courageous. Courage is not the absence of fear but the willingness to do the thing we fear. Go straight into the lion's den.
Keep a Quiet Heart
