August ’14

Hope you are well, dear ones.

We can hardly believe summer is nearly over. The past week has honestly been one of the hottest/most humid here in MI though, so we are very ready for the cooler weather to settle in (and stay awhile:).

The past month has not brought a whole lot of changes, just much of  Lane’s continued diligence in therapy, preparation for our baby coming in December, and precious time together whenever we get the chance. Just this week Lane actually began therapy at a new facility in the Lansing area that we are loving so far. All of his therapists seem to be a great fit for him and have new/different approaches that he’s been needing. We are so grateful for every and any small or great gain he is making and are SO glad when the therapists take advantage of them and find ways for Lane to be independent with whatever he CAN do. We appreciate your prayer in this specific area. That Lane would continue to make physical progress and that neither of us would lose heart with how long the brain injury healing process can take. But most importantly that our focus would remain on Christ, what only truly matters in this life. Neither of us could honestly describe in words how much Christ has taught us in the areas of contentment and perspective the past 1.5+ years. And we know He’s not finished yet!

On another note, we are having a blast getting ready for our precious ‘Baby B’ that is 22 weeks old today! Our hearts are continuously bursting with excitement and joy as we prepare for and have the privilege of being this child’s parents. Just 18ish weeks until we get to meet him or her:)

Further ways you can continue to pray… diligence and peace where God has us now, our walks with Christ and marriage, health/safety of Emily & baby, and Lane’s continued health/progress.Thank you! As life continues to move on (and get busier) at this point we plan on keeping our blog updated about every 4-6 weeks.

On Christ the solid rock we STAND,

Lane, Emily, and Little B
