Josh and I have had a very difficult day. We have cried and cried and cried again. I'll admit, we threw ourselves a pity party, a massive pity party complete with black streamers, black balloons and black party favors. The party lasted most of the day, yes it was a long party.  But now the party is over and we are feeling better and more optimistic. Malachi will be fine. No more tears to be cried and no more parties to be thrown. We are moving forward with hope, faith, love and peace. We are taking the first step on this new journey with all our family and friends cheering us on (yes my loved ones, that means your pity party must be over too). We are going to suck it up and get going. Our path is still unknown and our destination still far, far away but we are equipped with the right "tools" to help us along the way. Each of you are playing an important role, we may ask you to quench our thirst, feed our bellies, rub our feet (mine smell like sweet nectar), repair our walking sticks or cheer us on from the sidelines. At times the path may be rocky at other times smooth. We need you to walk the path with us, providing us a resting place when we get weary and encouragement when we are feeling defeated. You my sweet, sweet friends, are a part of this and whether you like it or not your on this journey with us.

God is good, so so good! Thank you for choosing us!

Love your attitude! Nothin' wrong with a party now and again either.

Thought these were fitting:

John 3:21: But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God

Revelations 3:21: To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne.

Prayinf for you all. Please let us know if there is anything we can do.


Steph & Christopher

This is such an emotional roller have every right to be upset. I just know that you're not being given more than you can handle. Malachi is such an inspiration! Lots of good thoughts going your way today! Just think of the victory party you can have when Malachi is strong and healthy again!
