Saturday Night

We have had the most amazing weekend and it isn’t even over. Katy and I cleaned up the cradle, took a nap, ate a meal, took a nap, made dinner, ate dinner, and cleaned up the kitchen. It was all so normal. It was too wonderful for words. There were no IV medications, blood sugar checks, spasms, or set-backs. We are so happy in our home tonight. Katy has been a bit teary-eyed several times. She’ll say something like, “I love my room,” and the tears of gratitude fall. It is the sweetest thing to be at home and resting, and to be overwhelmed with gratitude for this remission.

Anyone reading this blog for the first time tonight might think, “What a boring life these people have that they would post a message about eating and sleeping.” But for those of you who have been praying for us, with a strong desire to see God move on our behalf, you know that the first paragraph is a very big deal. Katy’s first hospitalization was exactly four months ago. Our faith has been tested. Prayers have been answered. Tomorrow is the Sabbath day and we will be joining our church family at Wellspring to worship the One who has heard every prayer.

Call unto me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.” Jeremiah 33:3

    Normal is good!

  3. Annie Kibler Says:

    Enjoy the small things. They are the biggest! I’m so happy to hear you are feeling better Katy:) God Bless.

    I am so glad to hear you had a normal day at home. You needed that, and I pray there will be many more. And hey, if you don’t sleep or eat, you don’t live, and, if you ask me, sleeping and eating are two of life’s fun things! So by all means, post about sleeping and eating. It’s a joy to hear that you’re doing so much more of those, Katy!!
    May the Lord richly bless you as you go to church tomorrow. I know that it will be a joy beyond words.
    Love and prayers,
    Jen :-)

    Dear Katy,
    Our prayer team prayed yet again for you this morning at church, giving thanks and praise to the One and Only for hearing and mightily answering our prayers on your behalf. We are amazed at his power and goodness and blessing in all of our lives. May he bless you with many more “normal” days as you savor his favor upon you.

  6. Sarah Meador Says:

    Praise God for the normal days!! It’s these that are truly the sweetest, and yet the ones we are the least likely to be thankful for as often as we should. Thank you for the blessing filled reminder of this. :-)

    This post reminded me of the great Chris Rice song, “Life Means So Much”. Katy, I pray that this weekend for you that has been filled with such meaningful moments of joy and gladness will only be but a glimpse of your upcoming days ahead. I pray that your Sabath day has been filled with much rest and joy in our Lord.

    “This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

    Much love,

    I am so glad that you guys are feeling normal, and you are absolutely right. Someone reading for the first time would think how boring, but anyone who has even come close to experiencing what Katy has gone through understands all to well how wonderful it is to feel NORMAL!!
    Love Always
