Thank you for the prayers for my husband. We praise God and thank Him for bringing healing in Rich's body! Most people we talked to said they had kidney stones for a minimum of two weeks, most had them 3-4 weeks. But Praise God! Rich only had them for one week! We were praying that it would pass before his scheduled surgery appointment on Monday. You have to hear this, it was the coolest thing! Thursday evening after the kids were in bed, we sat together and I was telling him how I felt confident enough to say that the stone would pass before Monday morning. I had total peace for the first time since the whole ordeal started. He said "You're not going to believe this, but after the preachers were here to pray with me (earlier that evening-- I was gone and came home as they were leaving), I felt a total peace come over me and I too, know the same thing". We both smiled and I said "Well, God just confirmed it for us, so get ready for pain when that baby comes out!!". He passed the stone Saturday evening and played drums at church Sunday so we were excited to call Monday morning and cancel the surgery! Our God is just too marvelous for words, isn't He?!
Since then, we've had a busy month of football and cheerleading! Homecoming was Oct. 8. Here is Amariah and the 6th grade cheerleaders with their Mardi Gras themed float for the Homecoming parade. They made their own masks, I thought they turned out cute. Amariah chose orange and black.
Our beautiful and very sweet friend, Saleana was chosen to be the freshman attendant.
It was a wonderful, fall night... perfect football weather!
The cheerleading association which is 1st - 6th grades always does a dance routine at halftime that they learned during cheer camp over the summer. My camera setting dial was turned and I didn't realize it because I was too busy snapping away so all my pictures are blurry. =[ Amariah is on the front row, second from the right with glasses. She is really good at cheering and dancing, we are so proud of her!
This picture is from last week's game on Saturday.
Funny thing... we were gonna get her set up for an eye appt. the next week to finally get contacts. During this game her glasses kinda fell apart on her so needless to say, we got in first thing Monday morning. She is loving her new look.
On this day, I'm grateful for prayer warrior friends that are always there to encourage, support, and lift us up to Jesus. Their faith and love are always so inspiring to me. Thank you Lord, for the friends you place in our lives!
