Anna and Mary Are Home!

Yes, it’s true! Yesterday, my sisters came home. After 6 1/2 weeks, wow! Tears and joy and praising the Lord for His goodness. Our immediate family went to the airport to greet them (all the parking in that terminal was full, so Jesse took the van and waited somewhere else), and then when we got home, a really HAPPY surprise waited on the front porch! A big welcome home banner, waving, smiles, lots of excitement–so much love wrapped up in those faces! The banner and idea to do it were Abby’s. It was a precious thing to see the joy the nieces and nephews had as they hugged their aunts and clung to them.

The Lord used my sisters in amazing ways: to share Christ, to serve, and to show His love.

Please welcome them back! πŸ™‚


“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him
that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace;
that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation;
that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!”
Isaiah 52:7
