Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
Philippians 1:6

weekend and news about gray for ye who need to know.

my mom and travis came to visit this weekend, and we had a great time. we cooked creamy basil chicken pasta saturday night and had chili's last night. we went to church and had a lovely time at the aloha potluck after service. today, mom, ellie, grayson and i went to the mall while landon and travis mowed our jungle of a backyard. mom bought the kids super cute halloween onesies at old navy, and i got ellie an adorable shirt for the fall from dillard's. they just left, and i'm sad. it's always fun to spend time with mom. she's also an amazing help with the kids. you know. grandmas. there's nothing else like 'em. on saturday night, mom even slept with me and woke up when gray woke up to keep me company because landon was in san antonio with the students. so nice. from about 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. sunday morning, g didn't really wanna sleep. so mom held him while i got uninterrupted rest. love it. mom also brought me a beautiful mirror for over our dresser -- beautiful and free, what's better?! and she brought some clothes from laura that kyla has grown out of. we picked out our favorites and are saving them for when ellie's big enough to wear them. an all-in-all great weekend.

and for those of you who haven't heard...grayson's echo and ekg came back perfect. not even a murmur! praise the King of Kings who created my son's heart perfectly. oh, how we cried when we found out. i'm sorry for the delay for some of you. thank you, everyone, so much for your prayers.

YEAH! I'm so glad that G's heart is ok. I wouldn't wish on anyone what we had to go thru with J's heart surgery!!! PRAISE THE LORD!

and as for feeling frozen: Do what you can with what u have and let God do his Miracles! and yes, sometimes that includes a lifestyle change! (we did)

Praise God for His miracles! I have been praying for baby G and your fam. I knew God had everything in His hands. Thank you Lord. Thanks for keeping us updated!
