Last night we had a Sunday school class party and it really left me looking forward for church this morning. The church service was wonderful this morning...a man in our church, Charlie Watson, is facing cancer head on right now. He shared his testimony this morning of how he feels that God is giving him this trial to pull him closer to Him. That really pressed on my heart. All this time I've wondered why, why, why...Why have we been so tested...Since April of last year we've dealt with my mom being diagnosed with thyroid cancer, Joey's brother passing away at the age of 27 the end of April last year, Dalton being diagnosed with perthes...Joey's grandmother passing away THIS April...and not to mention that in less than 5 years I have personally lost my Nana & Grandaddy (my mom's parents) and my mom's brother at the age of 52 from complications of diabetes. It just seems like so, so much..then last year right after Jason died Mrs. Kelly Evatt from our church passed away from a massive heart attack at the age of 42. It was like everywhere we turned someone we loved was dying or sick...and maybe all this IS for a reason. Maybe it's to make Joey and I stronger as a couple, stronger as Christians....there is a reason. We don't see it right now at this moment, but I trust that soon we will understand it all.
I'm sure that not every Sunday will be a day like we've had today and I'm sure that as long as we are in the "fragmentation" stage of Dalton's perthes (ie: the head of the femur breaking down and flattening) that
