Here are Ian and I with another one of my favorite people, my grammy Stephens. Ian was able to come home with me this weekend for my brother's wedding, thanks to Steve and Mary's constant self-less-ness. I've been waiting for nearly two years for Ian to come home with me again and I loved every minute of it. He was able to meet a lot of my family for the first time. Even a few months ago, this wouldn't have been possible. And the more I think about this and look at this picture, the closer I get to crying so this is it for now.

Thank you always

Came across this in my devotions this morning in Spurgeon's "The Power of Prayer in a Believer's Life" and thought it might encourage you: " have proved that God is faithufl and that as your tribulations abound, so your consolations also abound in Christ Jesus."

Larissa, your faith is an inspiration to all who read your posts. Praying that Ian himself will soon be able to post.

I'm continuing to pray for Ian's healing and for you. Would you share any developments in his progress in terms of communication, movement, etc? Thanks! God bless you.
