Luke's Mom Finds Encouragement
This is Luke's Mom, Sue. WOW! I just learned how to blog! I just wanted to say how encouraged I am by your outpouring of love and prayers. To be honest with you this has been the worst nightmare of my life and yet throughout this whole ordeal I'm finding at times amazing peace and receiving a ministering touch from the Lord himself.I'm awed at how much our heavenly Father loves me, just to show a quick example I'd like to share some of the blessings I've received throughout this whole ordeal. The other day I was thinking to myself how fun it would be for my little 3 & 5 year olds to ride on a bus, they love buses. Not more than 5 minutes later I was talking to my Sister Jill and she mentioned to me that she was thinking about taking the boys on a short bus ride into the Lakewood Towne Center, I was amazed. Then the next day I thinking to myself how good some of my Mom's home made soup would be and later that afternoon, Mom informed me, that she was going to make up a pot of her delicious soup the next day. Once again, on that same day I was thinking how nice it would be to have a taller chair to sit on by Luke's bedside. This is where I spend most of my days and my feet have been swelling a bit from all the standing on the hard floor. That evening the cleaning lady saw me standing and said that she thought she could find a taller chair and sure enough within 5 minutes I was sitting on a wonderful chair, so that now when I sing with Luke and tell him how much I love him, I am so much more comfortable.I could go on and on with thanks to all those that are continually pouring out their love through meals, helping with the boys and most importantly the prayers.I consider myself to be in one of the deepest spiritual battles of my life and their are times when I can feel definite warfare and I have to cry out to God for help and He always comes through.You're all wonderful and I love you, keep on praying God is hearing you!!
