Good, oh, so good.

So I am totally behind in telling the great news.

Yesterday morning we went to the neurologist and were told and shown the results of the Captains MRI...

TOTALLY CLEAR!!! No spots, lesions or, well, anything!

Dr. S said the next MRI is scheduled for next April, the captain will also have an EEG. If everything is clear and normal, then they will discuss taking him off his anti-seizure meds...

It was truly a Tuesday of Praise...in which I totally missed the great opportunity to blog about because I am lazy and busy and more lazy...whatever.

I was laying in bed the other night thinking about what I had written on my last post. About who would volunteer to go where God had planned for them if they could see what they would have to go through...A verse came to mind. It is about the Israelites, when they left Egypt.

Psalm 77:19
Your path led through the sea,
your way through the mighty waters,
though your footprints were not seen.


I have long loved this verse. I love the thought of looking back and seeing God's plan. Of grasping even a small portion of His purpose after traversing tumultuous waters and not understanding. I love knowing the hard kept faith was worth everything it might have cost.

I was thinking all of these things before we knew of the captains good news...before I knew the water would continue to be calm for awhile longer...God is good no matter what. Calm or rough sea...God is good. It is just nice to remind yourself once and awhile.

Praise the Lord! So, so happy for you all. I love reading your blog each morning at work with my coffee. Caden must have really been talking to her Lord up in Heaven telling him to heal her daddy. I'm glad he listened.
