Hello friends,
     I'm sorry it's been so long, trying to get ready for Christmas.  Micah has been up and down with getting used to new meds and getting rid of old meds.  He has been having some bouts of fever and vomiting also.  We're not sure what is causing that and all tests have come back normal.  They even took him for some x-rays and imaging of the stomach area to make sure they were not missing anything.  If he is still doing this on Christmas then he will not be able to come home with us for his visit.   God directed me today to Luke 5:12+. 

"While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, 'Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.'
Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. 'I am willing,' he said. 'Be clean!' And immediately the leprosy left him."

     This is a good prayer for all of us, not just Micah.  We all have things that we need to be cleansed from and we all need Jesus to do that cleansing for us.  I want to encourage each of you during this season to take time to let the Father cleanse you from all the worldliness that has come to be associated with Christmas.  Strive to put Christ at the forefront of all that you do.  May the Lord bless you and keep you all in the center of His will.


  1. Hi, Tina,
    I know your family from AGAPE co-op back in '03 -'o4. Our son Nick was hospitalized at age 3 for menengitis and encephalitis. The inflamation in his brain affected the region that regulates body temperature. His temperature can be 93 or 104 and none of it means anything. I don't know if this is a possibility with Micah or not. One of the specialists at Vanderbilt told me about it, but many of the other medical folks didn't know or think about it. Just thought it might be worth looking into.
