A Big Day...

Today was a big day for Kyalynn. She had her first dental cleaning. I am just so proud of this girl! She is beyond precious and I thank God He chose me to be her momma! She did so well considering she has  huge sensory processing issues. I can't imagine having to endure the over the top stimulation of the electric brush and the tooth scaler when even the slightest loud noise can put you over the edge! She was vocal and did try to remove herself from the chair numerous times but I would lay my hand on her chest and tell her she would be fine and just look at those teeth sparkle and she'd settle down for a bit. She was very polite and each time the hygienist would ask her if she could do such and such to her teeth Kyalynn would say very loudly "no thank you!" So cute! She couldn't hack the fluoride treatment and ripped the trays out of her mouth but honestly, I don't blame her. I HATE that too! :)

They gave her a small handheld mirror to look at herself with and she was so enamored with how shiny her teeth were. LOL! She kept smiling big and saying "oh, look at the teeth" and couldn't wait to get home and show daddy. All in all, she survived, I only have a small headache, her teeth are shiny, and thank God we don't have to do that again for another 6 months! :)

I understand this post all too well! I used to hold my little sensory guy on my lap while he cried and cried. Thankfully, we had a wonderful pediatric dentist who took her special patients before and after regular hours so we didn't have to worry about him being so vocal.

I'm so glad that Kyalynn was impressed with the results. I hope your headache didn't last too long! :)

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…
