I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.
Psalm 27: 13-14

Just when we thought God was going to bed...we got some great news about Witt's heart. Without trying to recount the medical explanation, the bottom-line news we just received is that Witt's heart appears to be working properly now and his blood pressure is equal across his arms and legs. This was a major concern initially, and with one more check the doctors will consider his heart functioning normally. Praise God!!

Hey Guys,
Yeaaaaaaay for the great news!!!! Just had to check the blog one more time before going to bed. That's a sweet thought to get to go to sleep on! I also wanted to share with you the words to a song we sang yesterday at church. I thought of God's care for Witt and your family as we sang this:

Faithful love flowing down from the thorn-
covered crown,
Makes me whole, saves my soul, washes
whiter than snow.
Faithful love calms each fear, reaches down,
dries each tear;
Holds my hand when I can't stand on my own.
Faithful love is a friend just when hope seems
to end,
Welcome face, sweet embrace, tender touch
filled with grace.
Faithful love, endless pow'r, living flame,
Spirit's fire;
Burning bright in the night, guiding my way.
Faithful love, from above, came to earth to
show the Father's love.
And I'll never be the same, for I've seen faithful
love face to face, and Jesus is His name.

We love you all!
Sherri (Lynn & Sara Kate)
