Home Again

We are home again, abiding in the lovely, warm (both in the physical and emotional sense) abode of 5804 Harborview Lane.  My parents were kind to welcome us back in their door again, to live under their roof, eat their food, run-up their utility bill...(Thanks Mom & Dad!) until we know what our next step will be.  In all seriousness, we could not be in a more comfortable position. Their house is designed in such a way that we feel like the downstairs is a separate entity all together.  But even if we did not have our own space, I don't think that we could ever grow tired of each other.
I don't have long to type, but I did want to share some specific prayer requests.  
Please pray that the Lord will give us wisdom and discernment as we are feeling a bit overwhelmed about the road ahead.  There are specific therapies and other interventions that John David is needing, and there are so many resources available (which is a cause for praise!) But, on the other hand, it can be overwhelming.  Please pray for the Lord to make it abundantly clear which resources to utilize, and out of those resources, which ones will be best for John David.  Also, please pray for even more discernment as treatments, therapies, and other interventions are being prescribed for John David.  Pray for sensitivity to the Holy Spirit and for boldness to speak up if something doesn't sit well in our souls.  We know that we are John David's advocates and know him better than anyone else.  Pray that God will lead each step that we take down this path that He has designed, in His kindness and in His sovereignty.   Thank you to you all who are praying so faithfully for us.  It is so obvious to us that we have many interceding on our behalf.  Please continue, for as souls bought by the blood of Christ, your prayers are powerful and effective (James 5:16).

Glad to know you all made it back safely and that you are "home" again. I have missed your wisdom and love the last few days around here ... but that is for an email. Just wanted to say welcome home.
