Jacob's surgery scheduled for September 3rd

 Tonight I finished reading the Gospel of John.  Chapters 19,20 and 21. Today my new NKJV 18 point print bible came! I had had another bible that said it was 18 point- but in comparison it is not!!?? It is smaller- 16 point maybe?

Because I have cataracts and can only see out of my left eye, every bit helps! LOL! The new bible is truly a gift from God- AND it had an added benefit that I had not even thought of- white pages! My other large print bibles have all had off white pages! White pages make the new bible reading much easier too! Woo-Hoo!!

I was really excited to start Acts. I was finishing up John in my other bible, but thought- I've read it many times, I'll read it many more times, I'll just skip it for now.

I didn't. 

I finished John and I wept hard for a good 10 minutes. Thanking God for helping me see I really needed to read that. My soul was refreshed, LOVED, and Spoken to and taught all at the same time!
All this at 1 a.m. because I couldn't sleep. What a blessing that we are NEVER alone!

And then I checked the photos my precious camera man (Isaiah) left me. And I SMILED so hard my face hurt! LOL!!
These two 12 year olds  bring us so much JOY!
Noah just chillin with "little" (2 weeks younger) Sis!
Noah's sweat shirt is a hand me down from Isaiah! In fact it says Isaiah on it. :o) Isaiah wore this when he was 7 and 8 yrs old.
Noah was 9 when he came home and he wore size 3!!! And here he IS now wearing it! I had not dreamed they'd ever grow into these sizes! Praise God! 
I. can. not. stop. smiling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Above Noah says "You know I'm crazy about you? right Kitty?" 
(I still can't stop smiling!!)  

Even this picture can NOT steal my smile! Wonder Woman did not want her picture taken. Even with Lysa's very LOVING and caring encouragement. Mercy's left hand is ready to push Lysa's hand off. 

But y'know that's o.k. As much as I would LOVE to get more pictures like the one on my right side bar, it's just not who she is. And we LOVE her dearly picture or no picture!

Thank You ALL so much for your prayers for Jacob. He accidentally slid down 4 steps yesterday- he did not hit his head!! Phew! Crazy boy thought he could scoot down them. We were walking through the gate not seeing what his intention was. Normally the gate is shut!! When I heard it I thought it was Pauly- our fast and furious step scooter! LOL! 
Jakie has angels watching over him, because we are a comedy of errors.


  1. I've written the surgery date on our calendar as a reminder to pray!

  2. We will be praying for Jacob. We will put it on our calendar as well. Love the pictures. You can see the love in them. So glad you got a bible you can read so much more clearly. That is a great blessing and God prompting you to read just what would minister to your heart is beautiful. God is so very good, Always!

  3. I love your post. I'm glad to hear you got a good Bible. I recently bought a Super Giant print Bible for my husband. I have done very little reading of the Word since Benjamin came. I miss reading in bed before going to sleep but I'm nursing now. I can't wait! I'm glad you got a good refreshing. : )


I love comments :o) so please be kind! (((HUG)))
