HOT BUT HEALTHY!!!

HE'S GETTING TALL!!!
This has been a fun, hot but healthy uneventful summer for Witt!!! He's been on trips to San Antonio, Dallas and Fort Worth with Melanie and Austan. With this extreme heat and the fact that Witt is a growing boy, it's hard to be patient waiting on the converted van. The daily highs are in the 100's and Witt and his equipment aren't getting any lighter! Unfortunately, the wait is still 2-3 months since the van hasn't even been made yet. It is ordered but the whole process including conversion takes a while. You would think by now I would have learned to wait and even bask in God's perfect timing! Please Lord, have Your way...it's always a better way than mine!!!

Witt does have several doctor's appointments this fall. Most notably is September 19. Witt will have tubes put in his ears, the doctor will look at his trach and wind pipe with a scope and a tear duct will be opened. These are normally not major procedures but Witt will need to be at the hospital with a cardiac anesthesiologist. Generally this is not an overnight stay.

This morning as I was thanking God for all the blessing of having Witt, He brought to mind a blessing that I don't normally think of. God reminded me of the incredible seeds He sowed through the valleys, some deep almost seemingly bottomless valleys. Yet, it is in those valleys that the ground is the most fertile...that the seeds yield the greatest harvest. Psalm 126:5 says:
"Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy." Throughout Witt's many, long hospital stays God was always always faithful to fill the seed bags with things like His truths, His promises and completely discard the seeds of anger or bitterness. Over and over He faithfully planted His seeds of truth deep into the fertile valley and watered them with our tears. Truly, truly joy always followed!! What a great harvest, what a tremendous blessing, what an Awesome God!!!

WITT HAS ALWAYS LOVED A CAR RIDE!
