Gearing Up...

Gabriella goes in for surgery tomorrow (Tuesday at 11:00 am). Prayers welcome and appreciated! :) She will be in at least overnight and hopefully not longer. Just depends on how she does with everything. I have an amazing man that can step right in when I'm away but it's still not momma so I've tried to do some extra snuggling, reading, laughing and playing to tide them over until we return. :)

Our oldest, Zachary, had surgery last Friday and it was a bit more complex than he was expecting. After a couple of rough nights he is on the mend but it is v-e-r-y slow going. He returns Friday to have the contraption they put in his nose removed so I'm sure that may entail another couple of rough nights ahead due to pain. My boy is a worker and thought he'd be back to work by tomorrow but there is absolutely no way he could manage it. So he's stuck here at home for the next week or so. I'm sure he'd appreciate your prayers as well. :)

Ok, off to finish up getting ready. Have lots of great posts to share in the upcoming days.....
Be blessed!!

Will be praying for both of them as they heal and for the surgery to go well as well. PRAYING!!
Lisa, I'll be praying, too! I'll be at a mom's prayer meeting tomorrow morning and will lift Gabriella up in prayer at our gathering. It will be about the same time of her surgery.

May the surgery go smoothly and may Gabriella (and you) feel peace and strength throughout the morning and afternoon. And prayers also for Zachary as he recovers.

God Bless,
Kathie

I wish we would could come up and see you guys and bring Gabriella something fun, but our schedule is kinda crazy this week!! :o( Your only like 30 mins from us up at HErshey!
If you think it would be ok and are comfortable with it, maybe we could swing up there on Thursday... if she is still in!! I told Madi about Gabriella last week and Madi has been praying for her since then!!!

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

Now she's....

11! Can hardly believe our precious, tiny, happy girl is 11 years old!  She's the first one home and I have no doubt that her contagious joy  helped propel us on to adopt 4 more times. :) 



She is a lover of all things but especially birthdays! If she hears it's someones' birthday she gets so excited and plans to be at their party even if she wasn't invited. LOL! She's been diligently reminding us every.single.day sometimes every.minute.of.every.day that her birthday was coming up. There were only two things she wanted.....a Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans dvd and a harp. Yes, you read that right....a harp! Oh my, this girl is a big dreamer but that's better than not dreaming at all! :) So Sean and I set our brains to thinking how we could pull this off for our girl and my man came through!! Check out this beautiful harp he threw together. 

And it's the perfect size for her and even plays music! Sweet! Kyalynn was thrilled and is so cute playing her harp. She als…
