I have enough energy to let you know we are home. Chris does have gall bladder trouble made worse by the viral infection he battled last week. He is in no immediate danger and has some good meds to handle pain so we will treat slowly.

Thank you Lord for your provision.

Thank you Lord for sending Dwight to pray - the words you gave Dwight prepared Chris to come home knowing you would take care of him.

Thank you for friends who visited the hospital and made us feel protected.

Thank you those who texted to let us know life would still go on.

Thank you for chocolate and diet coke and their delivery driver.

Thank you for the rest you are sending tonight.

Thank you for Father Jim and his visits to encourage Chris.

Thank you for Adam and Kristen and coffee. They made Chris smile.

Thank you for cheese burgers - who knew so much fat could bring so much joy - if just for a little bit!

Thank you for friends who look after our precious daughter.

Thank you for friends who feed us!

Thank you for family far away who lift us in prayer.

Thank you for your love, God. We are never alone.


  1. Oh Happy Day, Happy Day, He washed the ____ away! God is good! I really hope and pray this works and he's well on his way to a full recovery. I'm sure he's ready to eat another cheeseburger and play some soccer!

  2. Kim,

    so glad that Chris is felling better. There is nothing worse that having a child hurt and not being able to take that pain from them. We prayed for your family and know that God looked after you all. Hope things get back to normal soon for you, whatever that is!
