Obstacles and New Adventures!

Many times we look at obstacles in life and miss the blessing behind them! Today God put an obstacle in our way and for a moment it seemed like a big inconvenience, but after taking time in prayer and seeing past the "inconvenience" God showed us what a blessing the obstacle was. See Trinity was suppose to have surgery to lengthen her growing rod today, but upon arrival they discovered that Trinity had broken her tibia and fibula on her left leg. Surgery was then postponed, because the swelling in her leg lead them to believe there may be some infection. If the surgeon would have went ahead with surgery he could have put her at risk for infection to travel to her spine. See that obstacle was a way of protecting His child! Unfortunately, Trinity will be in a cast again, but she's got such great spirits! As for the surgery, it will be sometime the first part of April. (will keep you posted)

And to new adventures... We are moving to Iowa!!! Have you ever heard of Tulip Time, where the tulips bring many visitors the first part of May? Well we will have the pleasure of living in that beautiful town, Pella. Shannon's last day at work in Minnesota is on April 18th. We are still up in the air on when the moving van will be here to load our stuff, but we are trusting that God is working out all the details. There are many mixed emotions with the move. We are leaving many friends, a great school district, an amazing church and many memories. I will have the pleasure of still making trips up to the cities, since we will be keeping some of our care at Gillette. Please keep our family in your prayers as we make this transition.
