Sunshine without rain is the recipe for a desert.

You know those times when you know people have to be praying because you have more peace, strength, rest than you know is possible and things go way  better than you’re told they should…well, we are rejoicing in one of those times.  Thank you for those of you who prayed for Miles’ surgery.  We were told to be there at 8 for a 9 am surgery.  He wasn’t taken into the OR until 10.30, which meant nothing to eat/drink that whole morning.  He did amazing.  A few times he’d ask for milk, and I would say after we see the doctor, and he was fine.  He had no problems coming out of anesthesia, and he was relased by 12.15 yesterday–awesome.   They removed the top 1/3 of his adenoids, to be conservative, since the more they remove, the higher risk he has of developing hypernasality due to his cleft palate.  He doesn’t seem to have much pain and is breathing better.  Anyway, enough technical stuff.  It has been a huge encouragement to us how many have supported us in this and upheld us in prayer.  An arab proverb says: “Sunshine without rain is the recipe for a desert.”  And it’s so cool how the rain makes you enjoy the sunshine all the more! 

Sunday night, we did our 2nd Annual cardboard boat race in Winona Lake–more pics on  It was a blast!
