Quick update!

First of all, you may have noticed that I changed my layout.. I was ready for something new and my other picture was a little outdated! :) I like this spring-y look. It might be a little early, but I am over winter and ready for flowers and birds and crickets.... and just saying all of that makes me look forward to 4th of July, ha! I know it is a while until then.

Secondly, I cannot say thank you enough for all of the prayers and words of encouragement for our family in this trying time. Janet goes back for a few follow ups tomorrow but we aren't expecting anything new until her first chemo treatment on Tuesday. After her appointments, Janet is treating me and my sweet SIL, Jordan, to pedicures. It will be fun for us to all go and have some R&R girl time tomorrow afternoon before it gets hectic again next week.

Thirdly, when it rains, it pours. My Grandma Kathy (the other person who helps me with Hudson a lot) is now in the hospital with some heart issues. She will be there for a few days and we are hoping they get her fixed up and as good as new in no time... but please be praying for her as well.

I have to admit to you that the last week has been one of the most difficult of my life. I am trusting in the Lord through this time and I know He will sustain us. I have been so exhausted (in every sense of the word)... and I have been reading a lot in my bible about the rest that we can only get through the Lord. What an encouraging thing, for Him to say to bring him our burdens and He will give us rest. 

Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

I am off of work for a week (one of the many perks to only working two days a week) and in the next week I plan on getting rest, cleaning my house, catching up on my school work and trying to get Hudson back into some kind of routine. He is just as worn out as we are. I am actually really looking forward to some down time.

I will leave you with this video/song. It has been one that I have loved for a long time, but seems even more fitting for the trials in life right now. Thanks for praying and stay tuned.



"All of my life, in every season, You are still God; I have a reason to sing, I have a reason to worship."
