We have great news! Judah had an echo at the cardiologist today and by the grace of our LORD... his HCM (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) has not progressed and so the doctor took him off of his BETA blockers! We are so thankful!! We will be following up with the doctor in 6 months to do another echo and to make sure that his heart is still doing well. In the meantime... I will be feeding him lots of great healthy fruits and veggies to keep him well and I will be giving him lots of great fish oil for heart health!! Please keep Judah in prayer that the Lord will bring his heart to complete healing. We are trusting the Lord for this special little guy! Thank you!

Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. (Deut. 5:16)

Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese? (Job 10:10).
Here's Judah and I with something I would love to have on our farm!!
The flowers appear on the earth... (Sgs 2:12a).
Wether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. (1 Cor. 10:31).
Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee: (Jer. 32:17).

To give you all a little glimpse into our lives here's what we did...
I really liked how this picture worked out that I took. Don't you?
Here's Jordan trying them on...
And Judah needed his on too... ("The Bu-Bu way").
Don't they look great together?
Today, we took Jordan to the bookstore to find a special Joshua Bell CD...
Then we went to the Health Food Store for dinner!

A kind of blurry picture of the campfire!
Here I'm tuning up for some Klezmer fiddle music! Thank you Jamie Lyn for being me "Portable Music Stand"!
Shiloh plays a Jewish piece that Marty Geotz plays.
Jamie Lyn gets her violin and we play together!
Everyone (or the majority) at the campfire.
