Praise the Lord our family is getting better

We are finally getting healthy once again here at the Searles home and just in time for the Christmas busy season. Luke is doing much better, his nose is finally not running any more and his breathing is so much better. Gordy is feeling a little better today and worked from home all day. My biggest prayer right now is that no one else comes down with anything.

Tis the season to be busy! How about you? Our family has a very full schedule. Tomorrow I take Luke to Poulsbo, which is a hour drive each way to go to see Matt, the Rolfer, then on the way home to Pt. Orchard for a HBOT treatment, at night we are going to Chuck E. Cheese, compliments of Starlight Starbright. Saturday we are cleaning our garage in the morning, then going to cut down our Christmas tree and decorate it. Sunday is church then in the evening the girls have a Birthday party to go to and I am going to an informational meeting about a Missions trip to Romania. Monday I am planning a Funday Monday, this is a day where I kidnap a few friends and sisters to take to Seattle and have a full day of fun. Tuesday the kids have choir practice, then we are having a baby shower that night at our home. Wednesday is a stay at home day, with church that night. Thursday the kids choir is singing at the Children's Therapy Unit Christmas party in Puyallup. This is the place where Luke has his PT and OT, the choir is also sponsoring a craft table, which I am organizing, we will be making a Candy Cane Mouse. Friday night the girls have a friends Christmas Party and I'm hoping to go to the Mom's night out. Saturday evening is our church adult Christmas party. Sunday is church and then Daniel's girlfriend Kristin's 21st Birthday Party. Monday Luke has an appointment with his with his Pulmonologist, I'm praying that he can see Luke healthy this time, that night is the kids Christmas Concert. After that we are done. Except of course for Christmas baking, finishing shopping, wrapping, you get the picture.

I hope and pray that you all will have a blessed Christmas Season and you won't forget that Jesus is the reason for the season.

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Sue

Thank you for the birthday greeting and for thinking about Chance. As I said about the decorating, my Candace always did it while she was at home and even after she got married she would come back and decorate the tree for me! Elizabeth always said that she figured when they all moved out I would never put up a tree. Now that I have a pre-lit tree I don't mind decorating at all!
I'm glad to hear that the family is getting better. I'll be praying that everyone's healthy for Christmas!
In His Love and Blessings,

Dear Sue and family,
So glad to read that your family is getting better, praise the Lord! It's so funny, I just finished posting a post about how busy we are this time of year, then I come over here and you have done the same thing! Although I think your family is much busier than ours! Praying that you all stay healthy during the holiday season, especially Luke. God bless,
Catherine and family

I'm so glad you guys are feeling better. Sue, I hope that at some time this season, you can steal away for a few moments alone - even if it is just to look at the stars from your back yard - and that you can have a time of quiet and peace. You do so much, and you are a blessing to your family. We continue in prayer for Luke -
Love,
Amy Lockwood

I'm so glad to hear Luke and the rest of your family are doing better! Although I think I spoke too soon in that email I sent you a bit ago when I said my computer was working...it just crashed again Sunday night! Anyway, I'll be praying for Luke's continued health and healing, and just know I am praying whether I make it by to leave a comment or not! :)

Sue,

I was finally able to "sneak" into your blog through a back door on my computer at work. (My company has blocked access to all blogs.) I think of your family every day and have kept Luke in my prayers.

Wishing you a blessed Christmas and all the joy the Lord has to offer!
