New Prayer's and Big Praises

Hello everyone. I pray you have all had a wonderful week. Things are going fairly well here. Elizabeth's therapy is going well. She is still in pain but hopefully with time things will get better. I found out that my insurance would not accept Mrs. Deb's office. I guess she is outside their system. However, I was up for renewal and had the option to change which company we used so I have switched. This is not the only reason I have switched, but it is one of several big ones. The new company does accept her office so we are very grateful. I did not find this out til after Elizabeth's second appointment, which was denied by the old company. So Deb has basically been seeing Elizabeth for FREE! What a testimony to the way the body of Christ is suppose to take care of each other. I know it is not the same as money, but I will have to bake her some of my Amish Friendship bread. YUM!

Rebekah did not have to go to the Dr's. for her eye. I was ever so grateful that the irritation went away after a good night's rest. Please pray for Rebekah this coming Sunday. She was caught doing something she shouldn't and now has to confess it and ask for forgiveness. This is such a hard lesson to learn. However, Mike and I feel very strong that it is necessary she do this. Scripture is very clear about what we need to do when we have wronged a brother in Christ. It is our hope that these lessons learned now will help her to stay on the right path in the future.

Rachel had her 15 month check-up on Tuesday. She is doing well, however, the Dr. wants to see her again next month. While listening to her heart she detected a murmur. This of course was totally freaking me out at first. However, now that I have had a chance to reflect and pray, I have a clearer mind. I am not going to borrow trouble. God is in TOTAL control. I am praying that between now and then God will touch her little body and when we see the Dr. next month she will hear nothing but a perfectly beating heart. Can I get an AMEN! Also, the Dr. wants to check Rachel's weight. On Tuesday she weighted 20 pounds, which is what she weighed last time we were there. I am not really concerned with this, I just think she is going to be petite.

Mike and I are doing well. Mike is working hard as ever, but really liking the challenge of his new position. We are hopeful that his dedication will lead to bigger and better things for him as time goes on. He has also been working hard this week getting a lot of yard work done. The yard is really starting to look nice.
I am gearing up for the new school year. I have never liked the paper work part of homeschooling but it is a necessary evil. I plan to finish all of my filing in the next few weeks so I can have everything ready for Sept. 1st. I would really like to do something fun for the first day of school, however, I am at a loss. Please feel free to give me your suggestions:0) Well, that's all for now. Sending my love to you all. Have a great weekend.
