“O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago.” Isaiah 25:1
It is with great joy in our hearts and great joy of laughter and smiles from Matthew that he is now lying in front of his own television watching his beloved Signing Times videos from the comfort of his new healing place called our home.
Although we know that the next few days and even weeks will be critical in keeping Matthew healthy, we rejoice that we have cleared one of the most challenging things we have faced on this road called life with Matthew. We now need to get with the business of sticking with the recommendations made that we have to limit our social lives in the next 30 days to keep the threat of sickness and infection from coming near as Matthew heals from this major surgery.
Even though we were excited to leave and “hit the road” we were sad to leave some great friends we made behind. Please pray for Paislyn tonight and her parents as they look forward to going home tomorrow…if she can keep food and medicine down overnight.

We will spend the rest of this week getting much needed rest. We cannot thank all of you in words for the much felt hugs of prayer. You are all an incredible group of prayer warriors!
Many have asked if it is okay to share this blog about our lessons from Matthew…not only is okay, but we emphatically ask that you would. We welcome any chance to show how good God is and how he is working through the power of prayer.
