So thankful!



(taken by Tanya this morning)

Yesterday was quite the day.

I watched facebook status like never before.
At some point in the afternoon, I became incredibly hungry for fresh Lepp Farm Market Corn.
We went for a quick drive  . . and came right home to stare at the screen some more.
For the remainder of the evening . .we passed the time grilling fresh sausages, peppers and corn.
while we sat in our tent and waited to hear the outcome of my brother Gerry's procedure to open up the veins in his neck. 
Meanwhile, far far away in the land of Mexico in a small clinic. .
my sister by love, my niece ..sat and waited for news from the doctors.
It seemed a bit sureal to get snippets from time to time. .over the chat.

Now we know the outcome of his procedure.
He had four veins which were narrowed and clogged and the doctor there opened them and released the blood from his head.

People that love them. . and care about those that love them. .
helped to pay for the procedure.

How grateful they are. . and how grateful we are.
Now we wait and see what the outcome will be.

In the meantime . ..
while my beloved and I waited. .
the phone rang. .
the emails came in. .
the phone rang. .
and messages were left.


I am overwhelmed once again by the love that has been expressed.
I am so humbled by the outpouring of love on my brother and sister by love's behalf ..
and on ours as well.

Thank you for praying.  .
thank you for loving...

If you wish to continue to know the outcome of Gerry's procedure in Mexico ..
please check out his blog at the right top corner of my blog. .



I'll be back . .
all for now. .

  9. Giving thanks with you this morning! I pray that he gets the right care, especially as the specialist is not there the rest of the week. During hard times it's most encouraging to know the love of people who care about you. May Gerry and Heidi and their family know and feel that even as they wait things out so many hours away.

  15. People ask about miracles...I think that God has taken the liberty to show us new miracles..maybe not turning water into wine...but showing us how to keep trusting him, no matter what our circumstances. He will come through regardless.
    Thanks for keep us posted.
    We need to keep sharing our miracles.
