I want to take a few minutes and tell you about the newest addition to my mailing list. His name is Kyle Brown, and he has Duchenne's MD. I know very little about this disease and plan to study some on the subject, but I've put a link here so you can check it out if you want to.

I know the Lord can stop all suffering in this world. I understand that He let's some things happen for a reason. I just don't understand why He let's children suffer. Please don't get me wrong, I trust the Lord to know what is best for all of us, if we will only trust Him to take care of us. I know there is a reason why things like this happen, I just don't know what they are most of the time. Have you ever noticed that the children with the worst situations are usually the ones with the most faith in Him? I amazes and humbles me to find this much faith and courage in the youngest of people. Here they are in a situation I can only imagine and they have more faith than anyone else I know. Why is that? These children can teach so much about love and faith.

Anyway, I also want to tell you about the newest addition to my family. Her name is Sara Jane Jasimine Horton. She was born April 21 at 7:33 pm. I now have a new neice and nephew born this year. Isn't God wonderful? Ironic I ask that question now after just questioning why He let's bad things happen, but it's true. God is wonderful!!! Anyway, if you want to see a picture of her to go My Family page on my site. She is adorable! I can't wait until I can see her in person, but considering my brother lives in Arkansas, I doubt it will be anytime soon. Sara Jane is the youngest child of my brother Billy and his wife Michelle. I don't have pictures of the whole family yet, but when I do, I'll make sure I put them on my family page as well. I'm very proud of all my family, not just my children. Let me tell you a little about my brother. He had to quit school because of situations beyond his control, but, he went back and got his diploma at 21. I'm not talking about getting his GED, though I have nothing against anyone that does this, my husband did this. I just think it took a lot of courage to go back to high school at 21 just so he could walk the ailse. Not many people I know would have that kind of courage, me included. I don't tell him how proud I am often enough.

Anyway, I'm going to go now. It's almost 4:00 in the morning and the sinus pill I took is just kicking in.

May God bless you and your family.
