Updates on Matt and Uncle Tim

I know I’ve been horrible with keeping up on my blogging, I’m sorry. I still think of, and pray for, you often!

I wanted to give you all a few updates. First, my brother, Matt, is doing great. He has one more procedure next week, but after that he should be good to go. He’s making great progress, and is tube free! He’s back to work, and getting back to life as usual. It’s been a long and excruciating 6 months, but praise The Lord, He is ever faithful! Even in the darkest times, The Lord made His presence known. We believe there were many Heavenly interventions and miracles taking place the whole time. We continue to pray for complete healing in Matt’s pancreas, that the issues would never resurface in any way, shape, or form. Thank you SO much for covering us all in prayer.

My other update is on Uncle Tim. He never did wake up after the accident this summer. He was finally taken off of life support about a month ago. His body finally let go last night just before eleven. Thanks for all of the prayers. He was an awesome guy and will be greatly missed by many.

His knack for sarcasm was one of my favorite qualities in him. There were many times when we lived in Texas that I would be so sad, missing loved ones. Out of the blue one day, he popped up on instant messenger and struck up a conversation, we talked most days after that. We would chat over instant messenger or video chat (he lived in California), and he would have me rolling with laughter over his sarcastic humor. The next moment he would be encouraging me with comforting words, and bringing tears to my eyes. He and Aunt Kathy (who has since passed away) included me in their day to day life, sending pictures of their garden, new projects, and pictures of recipes/wine they were testing out..because of him, and Aunt Kathy, I didn’t feel so alone. After Aunt Kathy passed away, it was hard for him to communicate as much with all of us, which I understood. I saw him a few times after she passed, he still always had a smile, a heartfelt hug, and an I love you to offer. That was enough for me. I simply adored him. We were truly blessed to call him family. It’s my hope and prayer that he is dancing on streets of gold this morning, and forevermore.

Love to you all, have a beautiful day. Make the moments count!

Faith in the Unseen

Did any of you catch the Dateline special on the Bingham family? What a great example they are of what positivity, faith, and being thankful can do in someone’s life. They never give up or give in. They fight together and for each other, without ceasing. This family has been through more than I could ever imagine, yet they remain faithful.

When I think of them, Hebrews 11:1 comes to mind: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

For more information on this family, a link to their family blog, and ways you can help, please visit this website: http://www.heartsforbinghams.org/

Please commit to praying for this family. If you missed the episode, you can find it on NBC.com.

Have a great day, friends! You are blessed beyond measure.

Graduation! And a Matt Update!

20130530-225815.jpg

Well tomorrow, our baby girl graduates from high school. She’s graduating a year early! So proud of her. It’s funny how time flies. One minute you’re wishing that baby would start talking so you can know what they want. The next minute you’re helping them try on their cap and gown.

She’s an amazing girl with a heart of gold. Her future plans consist of earning her major in Sociology and her minor in Multi Ethnic Studies. Then, she can get on to what she really wants to do…mission work, and writing that goes hand in hand with that mission work.

I’m so blessed, and in awe, that The Lord entrusted us with this beautiful miracle. It blows me away.

In other news, Matt is still in the hospital, and will be (reportedly) through the weekend. Please continue to lift him up in prayer. I hope to be able to see him tomorrow morning. I want to take Ash in to see him while she’s wearing her cap and gown so he can see her, since he won’t be able to attend the graduation. If I make it through that without having to be admitted myself for an emotional breakdown, it will be a miracle! 😉

One thing I know for sure is that God is GOOD, and worthy to be praised! In the good times, in the bad times, in the in between times. Praising confuses the enemy! So praise Him in advance, friends! Your breakthrough is on the way!

Scripture:
Now to the God who can do so many awe-inspiring things, immeasurable things, things greater than we ever could ask or imagine through the power at work in us, to Him be all glory in the church and in Jesus the Anointed from this generation to the next, forever and ever. Amen.
– Ephesians 3:20-21
