plugging along

This week has gone quite well so far.  Braveheart is feeling much better, especially toward the beginning of the week.  Today and yesterday he is more sleepy.  We notice little things like suddenly he is taking 3-5 pills in one gulp like he used to.  The other day before it got a bit gloomy out, we noticed him taking his walk down our street with his sister.  He just looked and walked kinda normal, does that make sense?  I know that seems weird, but it's those kind of things that one sees sometimes.  I am (we are) so excited for him to continue to get better.

The big news this week is that we have our CT scan on Monday, so we are just trusting the Lord on this one. No one suspects much for this 6 month out scan.  I may not be so calm for the year out one.  I feel like we have come so far you know?  Are we on a turning point?  There will be lots of fluids involved with this.  They are going to help him with that.  We will be there all day long. 

Thank you for your believing prayers.  Sometimes you wonder if you are 'toiling in vein' but God sends His word which is so good...

Isaiah 49

 1 Listen to Me, O Islands,
And pay attention, you peoples from afar.

The LORD called Me from the womb;
From the body of My mother He named Me.
2 He has made My mouth like a sharp sword,
In the shadow of His hand He has concealed Me;
And He has also made Me a select arrow,
He has hidden Me in His quiver.
3 He said to Me, “You are My Servant, Israel,

In Whom I will show My glory.”
4 But I said, “I have toiled in vain,
I have spent My strength for nothing and vanity;
Yet surely the justice due to Me is with the LORD,
And My reward with My God.”

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

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.
