It’s been a pretty hard couple of days. Thursday afternoon our oldest child and daughter Abby, was diagnosed with diabetes. We’ve spent the last couple of days in the hospital with her trying to get her blood sugar regulated as well as getting educated on the lifestyle change this means for our precious daughter and the rest of our family. We’ve shed some tears, helped her push through some pain, and even laughed a little at some funny things along the way (For example, Jackson’s first question was, “Is she contagious?”). I know that we have just started the journey and I’m sure there will be challenging days ahead. Yet in the midst of all of this we are supremely confident in Christ, His grace, and His provision. We just have, as my mother-in-law perfectly said, “A New Normal.”
I also just want to thank all of those who have been praying for us and caring for us in a variety of ways. Julie and I are unbelievably grateful for the wonderful friends and church that we are a part of. It is wonderful to be a part of the body of Christ. Words can hardly express just how thankful we are.
