when i got word that we were going to have to enter into a formal appeal
in order to fight for L’s therapies,
i really didn’t think i could handle it.
i was so stressed out and pushed to the max.
but after
hours and
hours and
hours
of a lot of prayer
and a lot of work,
i was able to get everything prepared for our mediation.
I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:13
and then do you know what happened?
i got word that the mediation was cancelled
because the team re-reviewed L’s case
and decided that in fact, he should continue with his current therapies
and not decrease them after all.
i know.
i can’t believe it either.
praise God for this result.

today,
all three children
and i went to our weekly CBS class.
it feels so good to be back after the summer break.
and, it feels so good to have all of my children attending
(my parents watched L last year and would bring him
to the class so that i could run out and nurse him and run back in.
we called it a drive-by nursing).
i am so blessed by the study and the amazing women who teach
not only me
but also my children
about Christ.
CBS has been life changing for me.
i can never imagine life without it.
similarly to how i feel about knowing Jesus.
when i dropped L off in his class this morning,
(this was the very first time in his fifteen months of life
that he was watched by anyone other than family)
there were lots of tears.
but luckily, i was the only one who shed them.
Praise His Holy Name.
Rejoice in the Lord always.
I will say it again: Rejoice!
Philippians 4:4

    Praise the Lord! In this photo, you look refreshed (whether or not that's true). Perhaps it was the good news about L.
