I have so many people who I care about that are going through so much trauma right now. Our own family has tons of stuff going on. Sometimes I feel like I don't know what to say to my friends, or even to myself for that matter. I would love to say that I understand what each person I love is struggling with, but the truth is that I probably don't. I can show grace and compassion even when I don't fully understand what exactly it is they are walking through.

Far greater than me...GOD knows and His Word says He understands! This verse was brought to my mind today and it was a great comfort to me, and I hope it will comfort you as well! Psalm 147:5 says Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite. How wonderful to have the assurance that God understands what we are walking through, AND that He has the power to help us!

Update on our precious little one.

I know it has been quite a while since I have posted because things have been super crazy at our house. I thought I'd take a minute to give a quick update.

Our youngest daughter has been struggling badly. We (and her doctors) are kind of at a loss as to how to best help her. So, it was advised, and we agreed that the best course of action was to take her to National Jewish Lung hospital in Denver. They have been the #1 respiratory hospital in the nation for the last 15 years, so we are quite hopeful about this course of action. We will be headed there in August for at least 2 weeks. She will miss school for that entire time since school starts on July 31st for her.

We are praying for answers, safety for travelling (I will drive about 1000 miles each way with just her), for a room to be available at the Ronald McDonald House in Denver when we get there, and for strength for me and our precious girl! We would appreciate your prayers as well!
