A Special Tribute...

There are no words for me right now... Well, not a lot of them anyway.

This week has been such a roller coaster of emotions for me and my family. We have had such blessed and thrilling news with the impending arrival of our niece, but we have also sustained very devastating news...

This week, my grandfather was diagnosed with AML- acute myeloid leukemia.

While our entire family is still struggling with the harsh reality of the prognosis, as well as the present and future plans for his care... I am so overcome with emotion at God's great power, and his plan for me, Allen, and Brynn. While our move from Indianapolis to New Harmony was very hasty and not as "prepared" as we would have liked it to be... I now know why He brought us back home so soon.

Watching Brynn and my grandfather spend time together has been such an enormous blessing, and I wouldn't trade it for the world... This time has been priceless and we will cherish it forever.

Please pray for healing, comfort, and peace for my family, and especially for my grandfather.

God bless.
