Great news!

Today is a day to celebrate and praise the Lord! Stephanie had her stitches removed and the pathology report declared her biopsy "clear and without concern". This is how Steph expressed herself when I asked her to show me how she felt about the report. I believe we all felt the same with that great news. I will tell you with 100% of my heart I was not surprised. I have walked, slept, ate, played, and lived with the assurance of our Lord's protection over Stephanie. Long ago, when I carried her, the Lord required of me to understand that she is not my own...She is His, always will be. She knows it. She lives it. She walks it. She rests in it.

He is a good God. Even if the report had been different, the lessons learned and the altars that have been built in the wilderness of Stephanie's life will be there forever to look back and see His goodness.

6 to serve as a sign among you. In the future, when your children ask you, 'What do these stones mean?' 7 tell them that... These stones are to be a memorial... "
Joshua 4:6-7
Thank you all for praying and loving us.
