Early Release

I got a call from the school nurse at 1:30. Evan had thrown up. This new medicine is not settling well with Evan. The nurse thought he may have had a seizure but didn't know for sure. Lindsay and I picked Evan up. He looked so sad. He says he feels weak and tired. He is currently very pleasant and displaying impeccable manners. He says he is going to try his hardest to be good and he knows that God has a plan for him.

A little background for some of you who are just getting to know us: Evan has always been our most polite and kind hearted child. He's the kid who will crawl up in your lap, let you know how much he loves you and how special you are. Evan accepted Christ into his heart at the ripe old age of FOUR. Mark and I thought he was too young but let me tell you, this kid knew what he was doing. He loves God and loves to pray. He is our designated family pray-er. If we have a specific prayer need, we always go to him. His phone line with God seems to be static free. He has felt a tug at his heart to be a part of missions in Africa. For a while all he wanted to eat was rice ("so he could be like them"). He would wear his African wrap and hat and even learned some Swahili from our adopted college daughter. The more I think about this, I wonder if we are going through this difficult time because Evan is such a threat to Satan (even at six years old). Is this a spiritual war we are fighting? Isn't it always?
I can't wait to see what God has in store for Evan's future! It's our turn to return the favor to Evan. We are praying him through!

I really hope this medication will work for Evan. Know that we continue to pray for all of you!
