Take Out

I just wanted you all to know that we are supposed to go home tomorrow morning some time. So if you were thinking of coming in, wait to do that.

It was so nice this evening to have dinner here again and what was special about tonight is that we were with people we don't really know that well from the church, but they still wanted to serve us this way. You have all been so kind to us in this time of growth. Thanks for caring for us in such a tangible way. I think I have gained a few pounds here:(

In our visit they were telling us that they had been in the hospital for a 5 week stay with their young son while dad was working a full time job. Thanks so much to the staff of PG for making it possible for me to be here with Grant w/o having to be concerned or not whether everything was being taken care of. God is gracious that I only needed to be with Grant and to try to care for him, rather than work and do that as well. He really does know exactly what we can handle.

Kimmy's Eco went well today, but we really don't know what the results are until the cardiologist reads it. Pray that the doctor would be able to see what she needs to in order to make a proper diagnosis.

Adam and Jon B. from the UW basketball team came by today. Jon brought Grant a pair of size 17 shoes that he autographed for him. What a nice gesture. Those are some big shoes.

Matt 6:25"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

28 "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

I was thinking about this passage today. God does take care of us, in every detail of our lives. One of the nurses was talking to her husband about Grant and how he is such a miracle boy. She was telling him that she was just amazed at Grant and apparently her husband said asked her if she read her Bible. He said if she read her Bible she would read all the miracles, like Peter walking on water, and Lazarus being raised from the dead and why is she so amazed about Grant? She said it helps to see personal miracles, in real life, right in front of you. When it's personal it certainly becomes more important and probably more real.

Spring break starts tomorrow for the kids. It will be nice to have Grant home and just hang out all together. If we can get out of here soon enough Grant would really like to stop by the school on the way home.

I'll get more pictures on tomorrow when I get home.

Thanking God for a strong boy to take home,

I am so excited that Grant is coming home so soon! Wow, a lot has happened in the Weinberg's lives these past 6 days!! It was good seeing Grant again tonight....great to see his smile once more! How good is God that He would have Grant come out of the hospital at the beginning of spring break where he can relax and spend time with you guys! I will continue to pray through these next weeks that he will continue to gain strength! Wow, what a testimony of God's grace!

Chuck, Theresa & Family,

The Carruthers family is keeping Grant and your family lifted up in prayer and we love you!

As I face some health challenges, I have found enormous personal comfort in Psalm 139:16.

God Bless,

Wally & Sheri

Dear Weinbergs,

As I go off to Galilee tomorrow, I won't be able to see how all of you are doing for a week. Know that you will still be in the thoughts and prayers of those of us at IBEX. Thank you for your impact on my brother's life and for letting him spend time with your boys. We love you guys.

Praising the Lord with you,

Hi Chuck,

Coincidently as I was reading my bible last night I turned to Mt. 6:25 as you did. The Lord's words seem to come to us at the right time. Praise God.
