Mystery Girl....

Our Gabriella is quite the mystery girl. LOL! She stumps the drs. all the time with why she has this symptom or that symptom or why the medication is doing this or not doing that. Often times I'll ask her main specialist a question about why does she has this happening and she shrugs her shoulders and says "I don't know". NOT real reassuring, that's for sure! :) So thankful her real physician is Almighty God and He has all the answers and her ultimate healing!!

So....where are we at right now....Miss G's last visit to her Endocrinologist was not as positive as I had hoped. She ordered a battery of tests to see if Gabi has other issues happening we haven't identified yet. A couple of days ago we had some of those tests done and will finish up with the rest after our return from Ryan's graduation. She is an amazing little girl and she sat there while they took 8!!!! tubes of blood from her! I was getting nervous. I mean, she is a teeny tiny little thing and by the looks of it they were taking all her blood! But the phlebotomist assured me they weren't and she'd be just fine. :)

I heard from her Dr. yesterday and it seems we have yet another issue to deal with. Her Potassium levels are very low. So being the resourceful mother I am I  G*ogled what this means and now I wish I hadn't. :( I have a call into her Nephrologist and am trying to wait patiently for his take on this and what the next step will be. Gosh I just wish God would send His word and heal her totally and completely but until that happens I will just do my best to keep her as strong and healthy as we can. I would so, so appreciate your prayers for our little girl!

When your body is not doing what it should be doing it creates havoc in all the other areas and we are noticing even more so now how intertwined it all is and how the low levels of this, that and the other have affected her brain functioning as well. :(  The human body is extraordinary and I never truly grasped how important each and every part, cell, muscle, blood, etc., is to the whole and when one part (even a tiny part) limps along how it affects all those other parts counting on it to do its' job. So we are getting Biology lessons in all of this as well! :)

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…
