    Thank’s Jeannie for sharing from the furnace. I am reminded of our three heroes that walked in the furnace with the fourth man. We know they came out smelling like smoke , but not much is said about how hot the fire really got. I appreciate your transparency. I believe these are the things the world needs to hear…how to make it through…blessings on you and Chris..

    Thank you for taking the time to check out the blog… My hope is to encourage others who may be facing fires in their lives. When we read the scriptures the time element doesn’t always register. Like Abraham believed for 25 years before he laid eyes on his promise. But we read the entire story in a few minutes. Somehow this translates in our brains as the trials don’t last too long, just a few pages! But when you start counting the years…. you gotta do something to cling to faith! 🙂

    this blog is for those of us who continue to cling…. !

      Hello my friend! My hope is that through the heartbreak we feel while caring for our sons we can find faith in spite of the struggles. I am praying for you and for Wallace. I hope you can read my blog and somehow find the strength to make it another day. It is certainly not an easy task. I don’t think it’s just all the physical part of actually having to help them do menial daily tasks as much as it is watching them struggle and not being able to make it better.

      I hope in some way by sharing my thoughts and raw emotions others can find that it’s not wrong to be in pain. It’s not wrong to ask questions. It’s not out of line to be angry. And then find the strength to continue to stand strong for our sons…somehow finding faith in the midst of the furnace…
