Greetings everybody. The Lord has blessed with a week like we've never had before. I can hardly believe that it has been almost one week since we came home from Fargo. "By chance" our bible reading schedule is taking us through the book of Job this month.  We certainly haven't experienced anything close to his life, but with job, we want to bless God for his goodness and kindness. He never knew why God did what he did in his life, and neither do we, but we trust in His providence in our lives. Thankfully, we haven't had any "friends" like Job . So many of you have blessed us with cards, gifts, food,calls, visits, prayers ect. We are blessed to have such a wonderful extended family. Thank you. Victoria continues to do well, and we are exploring other options medically..please keep praying about that. In the meantime, life goes on at our home. School work, music lessons, laundry, hockey, play, you know what I mean. Here are a few photos from this week.


  1. Praise God for His goodness!! According to the doctors, you never should even be HOME with your baby girl!!! :) She is so precious, and we are still praying a lot for you all!! We really appreciate the updates on Victoria! Love you all.

  2. Thanks for the update. I see it's been a busy, eventful week. :) Will be praying with you as you decide on the medical options. I know there's quite a bit of information on the web about holoprosencephaly.
    PS. Earth's mantle looking pretty tasty...
