Good Morning Prayer Warriors,
If you are reading this post today I want to give you a special thanks for taking time out of your busy Holiday to check up on Jesse. We all have been so blessed by so many peoples letters to her.Every time Dee and I read them we are touched by the love and comments that are written. So many people are leaning on the Lord and laying Jesse's life at his feet. We feel so humbled and honored by this.
This is a special Thanksgiving for us. We have always been a very close family and everyone that knows us know how very close we are. This whole ordeal has only made us closer...if that's possible. To have all my girls home for Thanksgiving (except my precious Lindsay) is all a parent could ask for. I can't seem to stop hugging on them. To hear their laughter in the kitchen makes it feel like all this has never happened.
Dakota turned 18 Monday. She has grown up so strong in the Lord it fills my heart with so much pride and love I can't express it with words. She is so helpful with Jes. She is sleeping with her at night in case Jesse wakes up and needs anything. When I am giving Jes her meds at 4:30 I sit there on her bed and look at both of them sleeping. They take up the whole length of the bed. They are growing so tall.
Jesse has gone a full day with no throwing up (yesterday). No fever since we have been home either. She has eaten very little but is starting to eat more and looking forward to the dinner my brother Ken and his wife Ann is going to cook for us at our house today (we all are).
I want to thank everyone again for all the prayers. I lean on Psalms 91:2. He is my refuge, my fortress in whom I trust (my wife has been deputized to help Him. She is my other rock.)
Today, more than any other day, hug your loved ones and tell them how very much you love them. Count your blessings and thank each other for being a part of your life. Our life here is short. Our treasures await us where there is no pain or sorrow.
We love you all and have a great Thanksgiving!!!
