As a side note I wanted to say a big thank you for your blog. After much hard work, prayer and listening I have landed my dream job at a wonderful school.

Toben, I know that you are probably moderating comments now, and I wanted you to know how touching this video was (Angie linked to this video on her blog To see Joanne smiling as she recites this verse, to see her speak Truth about God, His love, His protection, His care for us is an amazing testament as you go through this current trial. I pray that you and your girls can continue to rely in His presence and His Word as you continue to care for Joanne. Much love to you.
