God Walked Before Us

1:00 pm - We just heard that Dennis is in surgery and doing well. 

He got this Mickey Mouse from his former boss and took it with him until just before he went into surgery.

Dennis Just Before Surgery
Dennis and I have talked about the ways God has prepared this path for us when we did not even know this need would come.  Here are some of them:
  • This was not found until after Brooke was adopted - it would have stopped the adoption.
  • We changed insurance in December that made the our primary hospital the UW hospital which is our best option for this in the area.
  • My sister lost her job in March and is able to take over the care of Brooke and our dogs.  She is just living at our house and helping keep life stable for her.
  • Dennis has pleanty of time of remaining this year due to the fact he had saved all he could for the adotpion time.
  • Dennis' sister is on vacation this week and able to be here and bring his Mom too.
Our family and friends from around the world are loving us and praying for us.  We are feeling the strength that comes from that.  Yes it is hard but we know God is good and in control

Psalm 42 continues to be a source of strength.
