Must Read Update on Izzy!

Go read Annie's neat post about Izzy's castings and the Chik-fil-a blessing! What a neat post Annie has written!! As always, she is inspiring....


I keep on going back to flipping through FOX...CNN...MSNBC. My heart is so burdened for the parents of the students who were killed at Virginia Tech. I'm almost a year into grieving the death of my son, Gus, and I know it is something I will feel until I am reunited with him. It just makes me sad to think about all the moms and dads who are just beginning this journey. People tell me that grief gets easier...I think it changes but doesn't really become easier...just different and the first few weeks after your child has died are tough. No matter how your child dies, it is shocking. One minute they are here and then the next they are gone. Gus was chronically ill and awaiting a transplant so we knew there was a possibilty that he may not survive...I can't even wrap my mind around one of my children being murdered. So sad...I'll be praying.

Izzy Update

Annie has asked us to pray specifically for Izzy's hip. Her doc wanted to refer her to an orthopedic surgeon for a procedure, but after much prayer, Izzy's family has decided to wait. Izzy's family will do exercises with her for the next couple of months...and of course everyone will be praying! I can't wait to see what the Lord is going to do!!

Also, you need to read this post. I just love the way God provides for us...always abundantly!!

Quilts for Kids

Grayson with his quilt

One thing that we do at Gus' Gang is create and send quilts out to children who are chronically ill. It is our privilege and honor to pray for the specific child as we are making the quilt especially for them. If you would like for us to send a quilt to a child, please e-mail me! We make these quilts and send them to the child at no cost.
