Several weeks have past since we cut our hair.
We’ve managed to sneak some fun in, reach milestones, meet more great people and see prayer answered.
These pictures are a snapshot of our life lately. Our calendar is full, we go to bed late and wake up early. God is good. A marvelous thing is happening with Lane and her treatments…
She’s feeling better!
Her treatments are the same but her recovery time is remarkable. She’s playing more and crying less.
She’s actually playing on the same day of her treatment.
I follow her around like a toddler taking their first steps,
“Lane, maybe you should come lay down” I wince.
“Nah, I wanna play” she laughs as she runs to the neighbors house.
Today she lives in victory!
Then I hear those two words…
Act casual. Do not pick her up and twirl her sweet face around the room.
We usually settle on soup but sometimes potatoes will do.
During all of these events are the workings of an actual life. Decisions to be made and sacrifices to make. I find that many days I feel like Peter walking on the water. Life gets too overwhelming and If I don’t keep my mind on Christ’s truth then I sink, instantly in anxious despair. Ruth, a great friend of mine, told me to make decisions with prayer, counsel and research then stick with it 100%. So when we decided to stay at a job because we saw God moving despite the absence of it meeting our monetary needs…that advice was divine. We understand that what’s happening with Lane is a gateway for God to work. Our lives are changing. We’ve seen God provide at the 11th hour and our needs have always been met.
Trust me, we’ve drank the watered down version of Christianity.
We’ve definitely defined how God can work by our own reality.
We’ve greedily accepted the cop out’s of a comfortable Christian life.
I’m starting to get the feeling that God’s trying to tell me something…
