Have you read the benefit updates?

Just wondering if you have read the benefit updates lately. Click here to take you there now. A lot of exciting stuff is in the works! You can always click on the link with Emma's picture on it in the sidebar on the right of the blog too.

So, how was your weekend? Emma had a pretty good one. I think her new meds are starting to do some good. Our sweet friend who kept the kiddos Saturday even got some smiles out of her. Those little smiles are few and far between and such a huge blessing when we get them.

We had a good time in church Sunday morning. It's always good to be amongst our church family. We sang the old hymn, "There is a Name I Love to Hear"...

There is a name I love to hear, I love to sing its worth,
It sounds like music in mine ear,
The sweetest sound on earth

Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me.


The tears flowed when we started singing that song. I guess I just realized that I really do love Jesus. Even though there are times I am so hurt and don't understand why our baby is suffering, and I'm angry that she isn't able to do even what she used to, not to mention what she should be doing, I love Him. He is the One carrying me. How would I walk this painful path without this knowledge? He understands my pain. He suffered so deeply for me. He provided the gift of salvation and eternity with Him, and loves me so much He would have done it all just for me. He's done it for us all. He wants us to accept His gift. Do you know Him? Is He carrying you? Oh, how I love Jesus, because He first loved me.

  1. Christy,
    As I read your beautiful blog, as you opened your heart to each of us, I had a thought come to mind. You are all doing exactly what you're supposed to do. You are keeping your faith during these hard circumstances; you are giving God the Glory, Him and Jesus are being lifted up in praise, even Emma is touching hearts, inspiring others, you’re teaching others how to work together for God’s glory no matter how hard things are and each of you have made God’s love a visible reality to many. I’d say that God is smiling at each of you and saying “Well done my good and faithful servants!” May God bless each of you by day and by night.
