Allowing God to speak...
I love to TALK! (Okay, lol for all those that know me!) Put me in a room of strangers or loved ones for an hour and I'll know everyone's name + information by the time the hour ends! I'm social! I love people!
As much as I love to talk; I've learned to appreciate and love listening more! I was asked today, "Are you okay? No blogs!" I replied, "I've been too busy listening." Ryan and I have learned through scripture that even Jesus walked away from the crowds to spend time with the Lord. Finding peace, grace, forgiveness, and direction comes from the Lord. If we don't spend time with him how will he fill us up? How will he prepare us?
Next week is a big week for the Lash Crew. Harrison and Maebry have their annual bone marrow biopsies on Tuesday. Madison will have her biopsy on Wednesday along with having her port removed since not working correctly.
Please be in prayer that all three are monosomy 7 and AML negative! Please pray that God's will be done and we have peace! Fear is knocking on our door......, but our FAITh is bigger!
We've been pretty quiet for we need God to prepare our hearts for what is or isn't to come.... Thank you all for your love and support the last two years. Dr. Huegge writing on a bed sheet explaining to me mononsomy 7 seems like just yesterday not two years ago tomorrow! April 28th will always touch a tender spot in my soul. Ryan and I have spent the evening discussing: who we were, who we are, and how God is still shaping us into who he wants us to be ❤️
Love talking? Try listening more❤️Please let us know how we can pray for you! Please share those dates you have as they come up! Prayer is key for peace.
Life Lesson...Riding a Bike
Harrison is a bike riding nut. If I didn't know better I would think he was training for a race! Yesterday he fell off of his bike and skinned his knee and arm. He replied, "I'm done! I'm not getting hurt 10,000 times!"
My response-"We all have fallen off of a bike! I've fallen and still have a rock in my head!" Of course Harrison and the girls wanted to feel it and were loaded with questions. Harrison asked, "Why didn't you go to the er?" I replied, "well, funny story; Pop (Joe Keppler) told me I would be fine and to get back on my bike!" I had blood all over and Great Gran wasn't going to have that, but over time my head healed with a rock inside. Harrison replied, "what?!?, why didn't Pop give you a bandaid? A hug?"
My response- Buddy, sometimes people don't respond the way you think they should. Mommy is one tough cookie because of Pop! We need all kinds of people in our lives! We need the "You got this-person," "You didn't do that right-person," "I love you no matter what-person." We need even that difficult person that you don't understand!
Harrison replied-"Well, I like the band-aid person!" I laughed!
We grow from one another. Growing pains hurt at times, but never worth giving up on. Say a prayer tonight for your worst critic and thank God for them! ❤️
