Welcome home John!

My brother came home yesterday and it is so good to have him back. A good friend of ours posted on her blog about John and it really blessed me. Her blog site is 
There are recent pictures of John on her post too. I just want to say thank you to everyone who has believed with us and has continued to pray for John. God is faithful. John is a miracle!

Christmas 2008

We hope you all had a Merry Christmas. We started celebrating on Monday night with dinner and exchanging presents with my aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents at my Aunt Pat & Uncle Tom's house. My aunt and cousins were down from Georgia so we enjoyed seeing them. On Christmas Eve we went to Jon's parent's church service and then to their house for dinner. We had Christmas lunch at our house this year with Jon's family. We had a great time and the boys (Noah and Garrison) enjoyed playing with all their new toys. We also did our annual dollar gift exchange and that was fun as always. Then the day after Christmas we drove up to Houston to see my family and be with John for Christmas. We exchanged gifts that night at the apartment and then on Sunday John was able to come to the apartment and open his gifts. It was such a great day with him. He really enjoyed being at the apartment with all of us and didn't want to go back to TIRR. We had a great Christmas and we are so thankful for John's healing and restoration. We are witnessing a miracle! Thank you Lord!
