Carter and I discussed on the way out there that we were nervous. After praying we felt at ease. Cole unfortunately could not attend due to having allergy induced pneumonia. My heart aches when his breathing is labored. Thankfully he is slowly feeling better.
Please pray that the book will be a blessing and encouragement to the Everett family. My desire is for anyone visiting their home will be challenged to think about their eternal destination. Will you pray the same?
Carter talked all the way home, at bedtime and even throughout the day today about how he feels bad for Aven as cancer therapies have caused him to not walk, hardly hear nor speak well. His cognitive thinking skills have been affected along with his liver. I am glad Carter chose to go to his home over watching the Purdue vs. Ohio State football game. He didn't miss much anyway. Purdue was trounced upon. Oh well it is only football. Well OK football does have it's place. Especially in a home filled with testosterone like mine.
As for me I am gladly meeting my goal of completing each weekly Bible study. Dinner on the table still is a struggle from time to time. That is normal for any mom with young kids I am sure. I have found it to be helpful to sit down and plan out my meals for the week on Sunday. Not rocket science but sometimes hard to sit down with household activities abounding. I do continue to take a nap every other day during the week which helps alot. Dave has been so gracious (to no surprise) to allow me to take my naps during the weekend then study. He has been overseeing the care of Stuart if he wakes up earlier than expected. I am grateful to have such a great helpmate. Oh - hair is still coming out in the shower but I HAVE hair. Short and curly but thankful for it! I think I have decided to just let it all grow longer. Like it used to be.
Tuesday, November 13 @ 1:15 pm - MRI

I almost totally forgot . . . I have been convicted for some time wanting to give God's story on how He continue to work in my life. So with obedience in my heart I gave my written testimony to both Bible studies last week . Please pray that I will have courage when the time comes to relay the message to all ladies that attend. Pray that they see Jesus and not a gal with brain cancer.
I will try to update you on Stuart soon. He is growing so quickly with some fun quotes to boot. He turns the big 3 on November 20 and won't let anyone forget. For example tonight while watching the Green Bay Packer game Stuart comes up to Dave and gives him a great big neck hug and states very quickly "My burth day party is coming up!". Sounds like his mother only except she doesn't tell the age as quickly as he has been only the fun day. Gotta love a party with friends and family! I guess I will have to have a playdate birthday party for him. I normally at this age didn't do kid parties only family parties. I guess being the third kid he knows what parties are all about.
Thanks for checking in. We continue to appreciate your prayers for us and others who are going through a trial.
O LORD, you are my God;
I will exalt you and praise your name,
for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things,
things planned long ago.
God is good - kate
