Spring 2012

This was a beautiful week in the Roanoke Valley.  Our senses were delighted with the sights, sounds, and smells of springtime as we strolled around on our property last Sunday afternoon.  Is it that my heart senses God so near; walking with us as we approach the reality of Qavah's bone marrow transplant?  Is it that I feel His pleasure in making these beautiful spring days for us, so that we can take Kathryn out in her wheelchair to experience His creation?  Whatever the reason my heart feels this way, I hope that I have thanked Him enough.  There just aren't enough words to express how I feel about the wonderful things I have experienced this spring.  But I have the assurance that He sees my heart, and I know that when words fail, the heart speaks. For as it is written in 1 Samuel 16:7b, "Man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart".

After wandering around taking pictures of blossoms last Sunday afternoon, Paul Burton asked if we would like to go into the house to hear the song he sang at his church.  It was recorded at Christ The King Presbyterian Church.  After my eyes took in all of the beauty of nature, the song Paul Burton sang sealed a strong message into my heart at the beginning of this Holy Week:  

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the Heavens, and in the earth is yours.  Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and You are exalted above all.  I Chronicles 29:11
