children growing in grace

First I want to say that good bye to dear Brittany who left our world yesterday.  I was able to say good bye to her family as the Lord always put them in my path in what had to be a supernatural way even for being at the same hospital.  I pray for those dear sweet parents for their loss. I think she had siblings too.

Now I must mention that Secret Agent Boy, child and boy number 3#, loves snowboarding.  He finally got to use his free pass and you guessed it, he was going down a hill with friends and fell, landing right on his right wrist.  He has a Colles' Fracture and he got both the radial and the ulnar bone.  He has a temporary splint cast on and we will see the Ortho Surgeon next week.  From there we will see what they want to do.

 He is so brave. Let me tell you, this is the kid who is afraid of shots, needles, medical anything...seriously.  He panics.  I am so thankful for the strong faith I saw come out of my precious boy.  He trusted the Lord, he grew in strength, he said things that were so gracious.  He even cared more about praying for his brother to be healed.  One comment he made, after thinking for a bit, it suddenly hit him.."awe mom, you have enough to worry about, now you will have to worry about me now too."  Now, how precious is that?  I told him I am happy to worry over him because I love him.  I am feeling privileged to be able to show him devoted care that he saw B get all these years.

Green Aid:

Although I have been juicing off and on for the last year, I was really off during transplant, so here I am trying to juice and gearing up for a fast for a day or maybe a weekend, we'll see.  Anyway, Green Aid is very tasty. From Cherie's book.  I changed a few things but having fun following some simple recipes rather than just throwing it all in as I often do.

2  organic apples
1 lemon, no skin
large handful celery
small clip of last of cilantro
1/4 cranberries
small chunk ginger
1 garlic

Gave some to the Agent to drink to help heal his arm in general.  I will be looking into things to help him to add to his diet.  I know that Comfrey is a good one.

This tasted very good above, need less lemon, so had to add water and stevia, then it was soooo good!

Happy juicing and healing!

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
