she is finally feeling better and other going ons...

anna has been struggling with this strep infection officially for 3 weeks and it was definitely around for a good 2 weeks before we went to the dr. she finished her antibiotics 2 weeks ago and we saw a little improvement. well on monday her little buns were on fire and bleeding again so i took her to the dr. sure enough the strep infection was back. she has been on antibiotics for 48 hours and there has been drastic progress. the dr. also gave us a topical steroid for the eczema and that too is better. her little demeanor is so much better. i am so thankful for her and that she is healing!

we are enjoying lots of swimming and playing this summer. in fact i think we have been swimming everyday except for VBS week.

speaking of VBS week...
i have volunteered for 3 VBSs in my life as a parent and i will say that this year i enjoyed it the most. the reason is simply this- the Gospel! on thursday we made Gospel bracelets (they are strips of leather with colored beads that represent the Gospel message). i was blessed to share the gospel with close to 100 children. i was humbled every time as i spoke of our sin and what we deserve but what Christ did for us.

"We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all." Isaiah 53:6

i confess that i often lose sight of what i truly deserve and what He did for me because He is love. i think this is part of why we are to share the Gospel with a hurting world. when we share what He has done for others we remember that He did it for us.

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23

"For the wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ." Romans 6:23

VBS was fantastic and i was blessed by the little faces of all those kids. i really loved watching henry & daphne sing and dance. they enjoyed every minute of VBS.

back to the swimming...i have two fish for children. i can't get henry out of the water and poor little daphne (who has no body fat) loves to swim and jump in but she is often too cold. her little lips just quiver and turn blue.

we have a busy weekend ahead...visit with great grandma, swimming with the grandparents, a friend's dance recital, a date night, a birthday party and a father's day celebration. we should have plenty of pictures to share next week.

have a great week!

I am so glad the bottom is healing!

How was Sunday School? Did I miss anything?
