A Whole World of Hope

If you remember, back in June, we were about to leave on vacation when Chris was taken very ill.  We have been awaiting on the proverbial pins and needles, hopeful and prayerful every day, for the five months until the day when he could have another test, to see if the problem had righted itself.  And so it has come.

One of the very best sentences ever to appear on a test report is:  Normal. REPEAT THIS TEST IN TEN YEARS.

And there it was---healthy and sound, all healed and well, and we are too grateful for mere words.

To all of you who offered prayers, kind words, and good wishes for his health, and for all of us in this dreadful time of waiting---Thank You Beyond Measure.

Our gratitude could reach the stars.
