Amazed ;) ;P

Hey everyone! Hope all is going well with you all! A quick update on Justin: He's doing awesome! He's gaining weight like a maniac, but hey, when you eat like a pig what do you expect!? :P He is still on 1/16 liter of oxygen, but the doctors are thinking that he'll be off of that pretty soon. We're thanking God that he is doing so well though! Thanks everyone for your continued prayers! :D

Sooooooooo................. I've been thinking (why do you look surprised!? :P)......... and reading.......... and I'm pretty sure that most of you will agree with this statement. God truly is amazing! Sometimes I'll be lying in bed at night just thinking, ya know? And I think about what God has given me. It's amazing! No, I don't have all the money in the world. No, I don't live in a mansion. No, I don't have every little thing I could ever want (then again...). But you know what? That's ok. Because God has blessed me beyond belief! He's given me so much! Yet, a lot of times I find myself just taking it for granted. Now there's the real special stuff (of which I am very thankful for) that is an obvious blessing, but that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about everything. My parents, my siblings, my great friends etc.. But it goes even deeper than that. Way deeper! God has blessed me with a great dad. He has blessed me with a great mom! He has blessed me so much with each of my brothers and sister: Ryan, Amy, Katie, Sarah, Jason, Jonathan (while he was with us), and Justin. I could elaborate further on that but I don't wanna bring the google server down :P I don't know, I guess I'm just rambling. But really, have you ever thought about how much you have to be thankful for? Sure, everybody's got those times when you think you've got it all bad. But look beyond those times. How much have you been blessed? How much has God given you? Thank Him for it!

Psalm 103:1-5

Bless the LORD, O my soul,
And all that is within me, bless His holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
And forget none of His benefits;
Who pardons all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases;
Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.

So anyways, just some stuff I've been thinking about!

Keep strong in the faith! God Bless you all!
