What is there to say?

I ran into a friend yesterday who just sort of grabbed me, hugged me, and said, “I would leave you a message on the blog because I read it everyday but I just don’t know what to say anymore.” I’ve heard that lately a couple of times. I want to say thank you for reading the blog. Thank you for praying. Thank you for not letting doubt or despair over Katy’s suffering keep you from believing that one day, we may all see the hand of God in such a mighty way that we will all drop to our knees together in awe, and have nothing to say because He has stunned us with His might. “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too difficult for me?” Jeremiah 32:27

    Sometimes I run out of things to say too, but I usually try to come up with something. :-)
    I hope your day today was better and the talk with the specialists went well. Thanks for keeping us updated!!
    With love and prayers,
    Jen :-)

    Looking forward to learning what the docs. had to say. I just posted about the new GI protocol on my blog, and a picture of the doctor you’d be seeing. We REALLY missed you at conference. BTW - are the musings things at the top supposed to be linked? If so, they aren’t working for me. Just FYI. It was neat to get to talk to you on the phone, even if only briefly!

    It is hard for people to know what to say in situations of chronic illness, especially if they haven’t dealt with this kind of thing before. I’m very glad your friend told you she didn’t know what to say rather than just not saying anything at all.

    I hope today is a day of hope and rest at your home. God’s peace to you all.

    Hey guys!
    I’m eager for the day we will all be amazed! I think about this blog and how God has used it to reach people that would have never heard about Katy - so that they can pray for her and learn from her and your entire family! On Earth we will never know all the people who have been touched - but when we get to Heaven - what a fun reunion it will be! One time - someone posted that it would be fun to have a sleepover with all the people who stayed with Katy in the hospital…and I remember thinking - that’s a party that I wouldn’t want to miss…But I propose that when we get to Heaven - we have a reunion for all the souls who have been encouraged, strenghtened, supported, and saved through Katy’s ministry! What a fun day - sitting with Jesus, learning from Him and hearing about all the details He was working out behind the scenes; all the ‘chance’ meetings with friends, all the devinely appointed doctors, all the friends who never got a chance to meet except through the use of a website…It will be amazing!

    We hope you have a restful day! We love ya’ll!

    Hi, Katy! I hope you’re having a good day! I was reading the entry for yesterday and began to laugh about the changes our children go through. I have enjoyed Emma and Matt’s childhood so much. I hate the thought of it ending, but look forward to the exciting new discoveries as they get older. I love the concrete thinking stage that Matt is currently in as a five year old. The other day, we were playing “20 Questions.” The answer was Hawaii, so I was giving Emma and Matt clues to help them guess the answer. My first clue was, “I am the southern most state in the United States.” Matt quickly raised his hand, and said, “I know, I know…..New Jersey!” Laughing, I told him, no, that was not correct. I then read the second clue, “People here hula without hoops.” Again Matt jumped up and proclaimed, “Basketball?” “No, Matthew” I said “we’re talking about a state!” “But you said ‘hoops’,” he said defiantly. “Matthew, this is an island,” I said. “Oh!” he said. “The Beach?” I groaned, and finally Emma came to my rescue and said, “I know! It’s Hawaii!” Thank you, Emma! Needless to say, I’ve been spending a lot more time on geography since this!!! ;-)

    Blessings to you,
