Israel is getting some wonderful healing sleep these days; it is a special gift from God.
Cori also had some challenges today due to all that she has been through: stress, late nights, etc. She ended up with a severe migraine headache, at lease that is all that the doctors could figure out for now. It was so fierce that she ended up in the ER room for IV pain treatment. She is slowly feeling better & we pray that she can get well enough to continue her much needed encouragement to her dear husband in his painful times.
Cori sent this poem that she said has been a great encouragement to them.
” Our Father tests us
often with suffering & sorrow,
He tests us not to punish us, but to help us meet tomorrow,
For growing trees are strengthened when they withstand the storm,
And the sharp cut of the chisel gives the marble grace & form.
We love the sound of laughter, & the merriment of cheer,
But our hearts would lose their tenderness if we never shed a tear…”
“This abbreviated poem says so well what we see our loving Heavenly Father doing. He does it in ways fit for each individual child He has. No two methods are the same!” , said Cori
The picture is of Israel opening a special package from his Mom (Rose).
Cori says, “She has been a real mom to Israel & I throughout these trying days & a real ” prayer warrior” . She continues to encourage Israel that Jesus will be his feet & legs, & that we just need to sit at His feet to learn.”
This was Israel’s birthday event a year ago!
Only God knows where we will be one year later.
