We are so thankful to just be home.  That’s not to say that there aren’t a couple little people (namely Alex and Emma) that we would love to be snuggling with right about now.  But we’re happy to be together, with our animals, near our friends and in our own bed for a few days.

We feel pretty confident that most of the tests I will need have been completed.  I’ve been poked, prodded, injected, scanned, x-rayed, examined, questioned and now finally we get to rest.  Much to our relief!  Hopefully we will hear results soon.  I’ll keep you posted.

Yesterdays tests… that’s all they were.  Just tests.  I slept through most of them.  I know many of you prayed for me… God’s grace and peace were palpable.  Thank you!  I had dye injected for the first time… let’s say that was a bit unusual.  But, John and I got some laughter out of it.

We’ve gotten some good news too.  John passed his board recertification.  Thank God!  Derrick is coming home to the states soon.  Thank God!  Bethany is being interviewed by an Adult Living Program.  Thank God!  Jeff and Taylor’s wedding is in a few weeks and we will get to celebrate with them.  Thank God!  My nephew Ben was in a motorcycle accident and only experienced minor injuries.  Thank God!  Did I mention Derrick will be home soon?  Oh, I did?  Sorry.  😉  I will be so thankful to have him back stateside.

We also have some family and friends who are dealing with difficult times in their lives.  Some are facing illnesses, some grief, some personal sadness, some just seem to be under attack and others are facing change… please pray for them.  Our hearts are heavy for them today.

“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” James 5:16

We are so grateful to be experiencing God’s peace, presence, forgiveness, comfort and joy in the midst of this storm.  We pray the same for you.

We love you,
Cindy and John
