"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

Thankful


Isn't she beautiful?  So far she's only smiled in her sleep but she does look happy in this picture. We're really happy that we can share her with family this weekend.  My sister Evonne was out yesterday.  She asked Westjet if she could extend her two hour stayover to most of the day (she was on her way back to Wpg) and they gave her a 'one time' extended stay because of circumstances.   Thank-you Westjet!  Tomorrow Dave's aunt and uncle (and boys) are dropping in here for Brunch, also on their way back to MB.

We are eating salads and BBQd meat from the freezer today. I think I still have that deer in the headlights look - I can't get over how incredibly generous and thoughtful people have been.  (and in such a wide variety of ways!) You have made this hard road easier. You inspire me to do the same for others.  Thank-you.

She is beautiful indeed!!! Hard to believe there is anything wrong with her. Praying for peace that passes all understanding for all of you.

It was a privilege to be able to meet Rachel and spend time with all of you! Our boys thoroughly enjoyed Ethan and Abigail, and David, Ezra is not forgetting that it is his turn to "get" you next time we see you, so be prepared!

Hey Dave & Kendra,
I happened to look you up on Facebook, Kendra, and then followed on to your blog. I have been crying with heartbreak as I catch up reading your story--your journey to the valley of the shadow...where God is with you, walking close beside you. It is a precious time. Certainly not without questions or struggle, but a close time with God in a whole new way.
I wish I could come over and hold your little Rachel.

Father--you're all I need
My soul's sufficiency
My strength when I am weak
The love that carries me
Your arms enfold me
Till I am only
A child of God.
(Child of God by Kathryn Scott)

Love and prayers. Hang in there.
