God's Plan For Us

This is our journey - God's incredible plan for our lives. When we followed the moving of the Holy Spirit, He opened the windows of Heaven and poured out upon us blessings we never dreamed of! Indescribable joy!

" For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

May 22, 2010

We awoke to sunshine this morning and are looking forward to a day with Baba and Emmy both being home all day. We had to go back on post yesterday for the results from the x-rays. Elli has hip dysplasia. We will be going to an orthopedist to decide if she will need a future surgery. The order for her blood work was put in incorrectly, so she had to have more blood drawn. Unlike last time, when she was asleep when it started, this time she was wide awake. She was a trooper about it all and didn't fight it. Just those tears again. Elli chose her own clothes and hair style yesterday. She had little pig tails all over her head and everybody at the doctor's loved it. We bought her her first Happy Meal last night and went and fed the ducks at Freeman Lake. She liked them from a distance, but wasn't too excited when they came right up to her. Elli has slept well for the past three nights, as has the rest of the family. We've all needed a good night's sleep, we just didn't think it would be three nights in a row. Elli is such a lovely young lady and she will share, but normally only on her terms. We stopped at an intersection where the fire department was collecting money for the Crusade for Children. Cindy was looking through her purse when I pulled out a couple dollars from my wallet. We looked back and Elli had pulled out her purse and was trying to give some money that she had. Just one of many examples we could give. God has so blessed our lives with this little girl. I do hope and pray that we make as much a difference in Elli's life as she has our's!
