Just another weblog

Been awhile…

Wow I haven’t updated since January?!  Time is just going way too fast.  Just a quick overview of Luke lately…

He has been doing awesome in school and neither his teacher or Ben and I have seen any learning issues.  He is just as sharp as he ever was, a smart boy!  His memory is quick and sharp as well.  He especially excels in Math and Bible~two subjects he loves!  He has memorized numerous scriptures-most have 6-8verses.  They do a new passage every 3 weeks or so.  BRCS is really helping to put God’s word into the heart of my boys…what a great place, we are so thankful for every person there!!

  Ben and I decided about a month ago to really pray for his energy and stamina.  We wanted Luke to have a desire to be active and play again.  God steps in once again, and we have noticed a significant increase in his energy level.  He is playful and active.  Pretty much everyday Luke does 1/2 mile our treadmill and each time tries to break his previous time record. (yes, he gets rewarded at the end of the week)  He is playing basketball on Saturdays and does golf with Andrew at First Tee during the week.  We are so proud of him and I can tell he is feeling more confident in himself once again.

Luke continues to amaze us with his spiritual maturity and tender heart.  He wants nothing more than to know he is pleasing God and his parents.  He does both very well!  He is joyful and funny, he”s always ready to give his mama a hug or smile…I can’t get enough!  “Mom, how can I help you?” I have been hearing this question a lot lately.

His upcoming appointments are in April: and an eye appointment and a day at KCRC for them to evaluate him.  And in June he goes for x-rays on his c-spine (just to make sure nothing has changed).  I’ll update after we find things out.  Thanks for checking in! 

 God is so good and we are blessed beyond measure!

  4. We continue to pray for Luke. I love seeing him at school and having an enthusiastic conversation with him. I love joking around with him and seeing his smile light up! We are continually amazed at God’s awesome power in our midst as we see Him working in Luke. What an amazing young man!

  7. I opened my kitchen drawer the other day and my “Pray 4 Luke” wrist band was there. I don’t wear it anymore, but I do still pray for him and just seeing it in a prominent place was like a gentle reminder from God saying, “Luke has some important appointments coming up. Take him before me and lift him up.” So I did. May God continue to bless your precious family!
