Shine Like Stars

Shine like stars in the universe as we hold out the Word of life (Phil. 2:15)
We're not trying to be rock stars but just shed some light on a sad and lonely world. Stay tuned for how God works through weak and tired, sometimes really cranky vessels.

I have an Ethiopian Nephew!!

My sister, Aimee, got her referral yesterday!!! We are so excited for Micah to be in the family. I can't wait for them to go and bring that baby back. Congrats Neal family.

Taylor Isabelle

Taylor was born a couple of weeks ago. She is a miracle baby! I don't have a picture of her because I haven't gotten to see her yet. She's still in the nicu. Jenny was measuring huge, really huge towards the end of her pregnancy. They did an ultrasound and saw fluid on Taylor's heart and other areas of her body. They did an emergency c-section at 37 weeks. The first few minutes of Taylor's life were rough, but with the help of the doctor's the Lord sustained this sweet baby's life. For two weeks now they have been draining fluid and they have finally figured out that her Thoracic duct was leaking. They have put her on a special formula and are hoping that this will allow the leak to heal on it's own! Hopefully, she will not need to have surgery. Jenny and Brian have been through a lot in the last couple of weeks. We hope they can take their baby home soon.

It has been so amazing to pray for Taylor and see how the Lord has worked miracles in her short life. We're hoping that she will be free of all her tubes and be able to be loved on by all of us soon:)

Apples, Apples, Apples

I haven't posted in a while and lots of stuff has happened.....

We went to the apple orchard with Sarah and we had so much fun. The boys love this apple orchard! We rode a fun tracker to the apples, got out and picked away, then we took the tracker to the fun play stuff and ate doughnuts and drank cider! So much fun.

Nathan thinks that Sarah's his girlfriend. He has a serious crush on her. He was at preschool before we went to the orchard and his teacher said he was talking about Sarah all morning:)
