God's Gifts

Whenever I experience difficult times I notice there is always something there to help me along. Call it what you want, but I strongly believe that God gives us the tools we need to deal with difficult situations. You just have to look for them and use them!

As the day of the surgery approaches the weight of the situation gets heavier on us. However, we have received such a gift of love from all of you! We have been so blessed and overwhelmed by all of the support and prayers from everyone. Each kindness lifts our spirits.

Thank you so much!


  1. "Come to me, all of you who are tired and are carrying heavy loads. I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28. God's got you guys!

  2. Thanks to everyone for all the support thus far!

    Jacob surprised me today with a special fathers day card and gift! He's growing up so fast, and I'm so proud of him!

  3. Thank you for sharing your journey with us. I feel like your journey has been a gift to so many as your courage, dedication, and strength has inspired me so much! I know God is using your situation to inspire others and he will continue to strengthen you in the days ahead. Lots of love, Melissa

  4. One of the songs that buoys me up and reminds me of the real nature of love says, of God:

    "He is jealous for me
    Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree
    Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy
    When all of a sudden
    I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory
    And I realise just how beautiful You are
    And how great Your affections are for me."

    To me, it has always been a reminder of how unbelievably strong God's love for us is. Truly, nothing can stand before the sheer and awesome power of that love, and all worries and afflictions are eclipsed by the radiance and pureness of that love.

    Being witness to the beginning steps of your journey I have seen that same hurricane- strength love shine through both of you, Monz and James. You are truly an inspiration in the power and strength and enduring resolve of your hope and love.

    Jacob is so very loved. By all of us, but especially by the two of you. A love with the power of a perfect storm with such fierce and glorious power. It nourishes the soul and mirrors God's pure love. It is an honour to be able to witness a love and a hope like this.

    Our love and prayers are always with you.
