The Hands and Feet

Galatians 5:3  You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge in sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.
And how you've served our family.
This is a rambling, insufficient but intentional, huge hug of thanks to all of the many many many who have served our family in the last few months. Since finding out the news about Ruby, friends from our past and present, teachers, parents, kids, neighbors, family, acquaintances, degrees-of-separation friends/acquaintances have all contributed to covering (SMOTHERING!) our family with love and prayers.

We were already aware how beyond blessed we are to have the family and friends that we have, but I am constantly humbled by the way we’ve been inundated with caring comments on my blog, notes of encouragement on facebook, emails full of scripture and encouragement, phone calls just to leave a message of love, meals, gifts, photos of my older kids doing fun things (since I don't see them while I'm in the hospital), and childcare-childcare-childcare for Eli and Maddux over the past several months. I am forever thankful for every single one of those very intentional and gracious acts of kindness. You all need to know God speaks to our family through these amazing moments. This journey has not been unbearable, and it is in huge part because you all have been the hands and feet of Jesus to our family.
We could not face this without you!
