We woke this morning to weather that was mirroring my emotional state. Overcast-the sky looked as though at any moment it could open and unleash a torrential rain. I too, was feeling that at any moment, all the emotion that has been bubbling just under the surface all week could erupt.

We know that many people have been, and will continue to lift Schaeffer Jo to the Lord in prayer, and for that, we are so grateful. We have been so reminded that while the last few days have been filled with uncertainty, we have much to be thankful for, and cannot help but sing the praises of our Heavenly Father, who lavishes us abundantly.
Schaeffer’s ultrasound this morning came and went without incident. She was very cooperative, considering we yanked her out of bed, and wouldn’t give her anything to eat or drink on our way to the appointment.
So, now we wait again. While we wait, I’m hoping to establish a sense of normalcy, to get doughnuts in the morning, make target runs with popcorn, enjoy uncle ron’s with friends. But most of all, soak in all the little delicious moments of life, that we take so for granted.
1st Thess. 1:4-6 “We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. For we know, brothers loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not simply with words, but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake. You became imitators of us and of the Lord; in spite of severe suffering, you welcomed the message with the joy given by the Holy Spirit.”
