February 4, 2010 8:30 AM

Good morning friends,
     I can't begin to tell you how nice it was to wake up this morning in my own home and have a cup of tea in my kitchen.  Our trip home was not uneventful, but we did ok.  Right after leaving the hospital we were caught in traffic due to a wreck after a few miles (not even out of town) Micah threw up everything he had just been fed : (  Not an easy clean up job in a van, in a parking lot.  We did what we could and traveled on.  About an hour later it happened again though not as much.   At this point we decided that he did not need to eat while in the car so we shut everything down and put a movie in for him to watch.  The rest of the trip was uneventful.  
     When we got home the kids had decorated the whole front porch and hung welcome home signs on every door!  Getting Micah inside was a bit of a chore due to the very wet ground, but not too bad.  Once inside I think he smiled almost constantly until we put him to bed.  He wanted to be in bed, but he wanted his brothers to be in bed also and he cried until they did.  This is something I would appreciate prayer for as today we are shifting the house around and Micah will be in a room alone.  It's just not going to work any other way with all of his paraphernalia.  
     Thomas and I stretched his legs out good before prayer time and when we let go he kept them stretched out for I think almost 30 minutes, that never happens.  He slept well and is still sleeping now.   I think that I will enjoy not having to leave my house today.  The whole agenda for the day is organize, organize and then if we have time we will organize some more.
     May the Lord bless you all with a beautiful day (a day is made up of more than the weather during that 24 hr. period).

    Your JEA friend,

  4. Today as we were getting ready for prayer, I reminded the children we still need to pray for Micah to continue to get better "little by little." Our 7 yr. old Matthew said, "why not bunch by bunch?" :) so that is how we are praying for Micah now...healings in bunches!
    Love and prayers to your family,
    Robin Evans (a Winkle friend)

  8. Tina, glad to hear all the news. Only you both could've handled it well. Certainly God is with you! I did see you on skype in the background getting everything ready for Micah. I'm sure there's a lot of adjusting & added responsibility but praying for you for extra grace & strength, for each day, one day at a time. We totally believe in complete healing, God has His time & plan. We're so glad to see you & Micah happy to be back home.
    love Shanti, Bernard & kids

  9. Thanking the Lord for bringing Micah home safe and praising Him for healing Micah completely since it has already been done at the Cross.
