Christmas Day


"Do you think that he's comfortable?"

That was one of Lydia's questions today, as we spent Christmas with Ian, opening gifts and talking with him. She was very caring with him, touching his arm and asking questions that show even her little two-year-old heart cares deeply for her big brother. How much greater does our God care for him.

This is not how we imagined our Christmas to be a few months ago, but to echo Caleb, this is where God has our lives now, and there's no place we'd rather be for Christmas than with Ian.

Ben and I went back to the ICU at Presby to give cookies to and talk with people who might be there now. It was a great reminder of where we were three months ago and where we are now. God's goodness never ends.

"Great trials are the clouds from which God showers great mercies." -Charles Spurgeon

I just miss being with Ian. Please keep praying.
