We're on the last day of a quick trip to Palm Beach to introduce James to his Arnold great-grandparents. They have both struggled with health issues in the past several years (cancer), so it was a real blessing for them to finally meet him. He's been sweet and adorable, thank God!
We're staying in a funky little bed-and-breakfast that we assumed was internet-free...but I just discovered that we have it. After catching up on emails, I checked out a few sites I visit every now and then for encouragement. One of them is "nienie's," a young mother (Stephanie Nielsen) who miraculously survived a deadly plane crash, but now deals with the unbelievable pain involved in healing from burns over 80% of her body. Her "attitude of gratitude" in spite of her suffering is inspirational.
I was pleasantly shocked to find that "nienie" mentions Katherine in her most recent blog, and has posted a link to Katherine's "Undivided Heart" site. I wish I could return the favor, but don't have time for the tutorial on "links." If you want to check out her site, just Google "nienie." She's all over the place...just returned from being on the Today Show with Matt Lauer.
Please pray for "traveling mercies" for us today... we make quite an entourage what with wheelchair, walker, stroller, and stuff!
