  1. Praying for you and David. Thankful that you are able to find gratitude in the middle of all the pain and frustration.
    “I love God’s symmetry of trouble and mercy. Troubles for every day (Matt. 6:34). Mercies for every morning (Lam. 3:23).” ~John Piper

  2. This is such a blessing to see your blessing. Know you are loved and our prayers continue to be with you and your family. Julie I was recommended a book titled “1000 gifts”. Have you read this book?

    1. Thanks so much dear Anna. We miss you guys a ton. Yes, I own “1,000 Gifts” and love it — you should definitely read it. Give Sully a kiss for me!
