The Kiss and Neckhug

Just wanted to update you on Cole. I forgot to mention it in the last blog post what he did last night while I was praying with him. He had a great Monday at school! Routine is good for him. In the evening he played catch with Dad in the backyard. I think he was in the teens without dropping the baseball. Go Cole! He would turn to see if I was looking while I was pushing Stuart on the swing. Settling in for the evening upstairs in his room I was prompted to pray for the inward qualities that make him very special. I thanked the Lord for Cole's sweet heart, a good friend to others and loving to Mommy during spur of the moment times. After the Mommy loving part he interupted my prayer to give me a big kiss and hug around my neck. I am thankful for that affection. It carried me through the whole night and on throughout my day today. I am trying to figure out Cole's love language and affirm him. Carter is pretty easy to read for the most part. Cole is more like his Dad - introverted and processes many things prior to expressing them.

All in all I think Cole is doing well. Continue to pray for all our boys transition into having a Mom with brain cancer. Everyone is uniquely affected. It is maturing each one of us.

Growth is good just not with cancer.

Refinement is always difficult, as the dross is brought to the surface and skimmed off by our loving Father, who wants us to shine like silver and gold. I praise God for yor life and your witness to others- this trial you are in the midst of is not without purpose. You are touching many lives, and more than that, your life is being shaped by God in a way that you never imagined. I am praising Him for your life, Kate!

After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting; "Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God." Rev. 19:1
