We did make it through a long day at the hospital and another snowstorm. Everything went fine and mike will get the casts off his ankles in 6 weeks. He is in a lot of pain right now which we are trying to maneuver around with drug combinations. We are trying to keep his mind on the redemptive aspect of this pain- that it is a sign of a grand new step toward some mobility. Pain will be an inevitable companion to stretching and utilizing muscles that have been dormant. I am trying to remember that all growth has that uncomfortable stretching aspect—physical and spiritual. And in a sense—no pain should be the warning sign that we are not growing. Now it is just living out the truth.
Thanks and praise, michelle

    Thank you so much for sharing your story for the YL’s ASC in Orlando. I have thought of your family’s story every day since seeing the video. What a powerful testimony for Christ and committment to marriage and family. Thank you for sharing how God continues to move in your lives. I am praying for you. Thank you for letting us be inspired by you!

    I actually had a dream a couple of nights ago where I ran into Mike and he walked up to me and gave me a big hug. I was so excited to see him. He was wearing something straight out of the early 90s including a forrest green satin jacket and multi-colored backwards hat. It’s been nice to live in that perspective, if only for a little bit, and remember that we have a good God who is capable of all things. I think it’s importnt to praise the Lord in the little thing, but never lose sight of or faith in what is possible….Including a comeback of early 90s fashion! We love you guys and are excited to see what more the Lord has in store!
