We wanted to give you all a quick update on Derek's transfer. He made it safely to Northwestern and has a team of doctors going gangbusters to get him stable. Thank you to all of you that prayed for him!
As a family we feel a sense of relief and have so much more hope than we did
just a few short hours ago. We'll post more info on what's been going on with
him on the My Story part of this site in a bit, but we wanted to get a quick
update out to everyone so you know he made it there.
A dear friend sent me this verse today...and I told her I might need to read it
EVERY hour to remind myself how awesome God is...how much bigger He is than
"Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands
upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the
throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they
were saying: 'Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive
power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and
praise!' Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the
earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying: 'To him who
sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and
power, for ever and ever!' The four living creatures said, 'Amen,'
and the elders fell down and worshiped." Rev 5:11-14
THAT is my God...with angels and glory and crazy power...and yet walks us
thru this day step by step to get Derek to a safe place.
