let's move on... shall we?

I wanted to say a sincere thank you to everyone who sought to encourage me yesterday and today. I was surprised by the personal attacks from the anonymous individual, but have come to understand that it's not my issue to carry. I know who I am through Christ and I know the love I have for Him, and my family. And the love that God has allowed so many of you to have for us. I thank you for such a sweet blessing. I've decided to delete all of yesterday's online "activities" because much like a red sock can ruin a laundry load of stark white towels, I don't want such a stain to be a part of Ethan's one day reflections over this time in his life. There are people who will always misunderstand us, judge us, hurt us, etc.... but a sweet friend's email reminded me that Jesus was treated no differently during His time on earth - and He always sought to forgive. And we are called to likewise forgive those who hurt us... or try to. My peace is from God, my strength is from Him and that's all that matters today. He is my defense.

I would also like to ask for your prayers for Ethan's doctor visit today. We are trying to get him scheduled to have his central line removed ASAP. He has started pulling on it and scratching at it so hard that the skin around the area is starting to bleed. Quite problematic!

Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for your encouragement. I read all of your words and smiled at the love many of you have for our family. Sweet blessings back at ya!

You have dealt with this so maturely and in such a Christ-like manner. God bless you sweet friend and hope Ethan can get that darn central line out soon so it will quit bothering him!

Hey Kasey, I've been gone on a trip but this caught my eye. I don't know your details, but I do know how it feels to have a mean anon comment, I had one just before I left and it was very hurtful.

I want to commend you on your decision to delete it all. I did the same with mine.

Your blog - His glory. Keep sharing!

Love, Lorri S.

I will pray for Ethan and his CVL. There are definitely pros and cons to having it in. I am glad Lydia's is out, but HATE for her to go through IV's. They are nearly impossible on her little veins. If he needs many IV's you may consider a port. So far we haven't traveled that road, but will if necessary. Still praying for full healing for both of our babies!

Kasey, you are a woman, mother, and daughter after God's heart.
