Lukie loves to go camping!

Last week we went camping and we were blessed with beautiful weather, thank you Jesus! Every time I would tell Luke we were going camping he would get a huge smile on his face. It was challenging at times getting everything into place to go as I was still recovering my strength from that horrible flu bug that hit me the week before. Once again I have to say a huge "THANK YOU" to my girls Amy and Natalie who pulled most of it together.

Our good friends Yoli and her children Spencer, Bonnie and Karlos went with us. Gordy stayed home until Friday evening since he had to work all week. We went up to the top of Mt. St. Helens one day, it's so amazing to see all the history of it's volcano eruption back in 1980, there at the top of the mountain. Yoli and her children had never been up there before so they were amazed at the magnitude of the eruption, I have to say if you ever have the opportunity to go up there I would highly recommend it. One other day we went to Portland, OR to go to there Science museum, the kids not only had fun but they also learned a lot while we were there.

Yoli and I went to a Homeschool Conference on Friday and spent the night in Portland, one day I will have to tell you about our MAX adventure on their subway system. It was so wonderful to have a full night sleep as I had been sleeping with Luke all week and had not had a lot of sleep the entire week. The conference was so good, it's wonderful to go there and be reminded of "WHY" I homeschool my children, sometimes it's pretty overwhelming to think that I still have 15 years of homeschooling left.

This week is full of lots of Hyperbaric dives. I hope to get in at least 8 dives this week. Next week Luke has a few big appointments, one with the Orthopedic Dr. and one with his rehab Dr. I hope all the dives help to loosen him up so that his knees will bend better. Please be praying that God will direct the Dr.'s as they look at Luke's muscle tone issues.

This morning on the way to the Hyperbaric chamber Ezekiel reminded me that we can't heal Luke only God can. I told him that I know this is true but we are just helping to keep Luke healthy until God chooses to finish his healing work. Ezekiel then reminded me of the dream he had where God told him that He was going to heal Luke and use him one day for His work. Ezekiel has remained strong in his belief that God is going to heal Luke and often prays to God before going to bed reminding God that he told him He would heal Luke and prays it will be soon. Oh, for the faith of a 7 year old.

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Suzi

Yes, the faith of our little ones. I am so glad you were able to get some time away. I always love being refreshed and reminded of why we do what we do. :)

I am still believing also that God will heal Luke! I know He will.

Lifting you up in prayer Sue.

blessings,
Teena

Emelia has said things like that too, when we did our first lesson on Faith and Healing in a workbook as a family and then prayed over Izzy, Emelia said, "get up."

How cool that Luke was happy about going camping!

Glad to hear that Luke loves camping, and that you are feeling much better after you illness.

Cindy -- I had just checked Brett Jr.'s website the other day, but received an error message. It is sad to hear that he died. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Thank you for posting this message here; otherwise I wouldn't have known.
