THANKSGIVING

I called Luke just now and told him to tell Emily that we're celebrating her life today! We know that many of you, just like us, have had losses---God doesn't always answer our prayers with a "yes." He does what glorifies Himself the most. But today, we have so much to praise and thank God for. And we're praising Him and thanking Him for Emily's life.
Luke said Emily had a good night. She has tolerated the cap on her trach for over 24 hours now!! YIPPEEE!! In fact, they changed out her trach this morning and it has helped her coughing alot, Luke said. He said she's also eating well today. We don't know what the plan is yet about Emily getting to stay off of the vent, etc. But....for where we are...we're grateful!

Father,
We just want to praise and thank You for choosing life for Emily. Thank You for blessing Luke and her children and her extended family this way. Thank You for glorifying Yourself through her life. We come in agreement as her friends and family glorifying Your holy name---You've done all things well. We trust Your heart, Father. We love You!! In Jesus' name, Amen.

I Chronicles 16:34
"Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever."
