Thoughts from Chris

Several thoughts for today:

I know this picture is quite horrible, but yes for a 3 bed 2 bath, 1700 sq foot home in Palo Alto they are asking 50 dollars short of ONE MILLION DOLLARS! No wonder all these execs are committing fraud these days, they can't afford their homes.

As we were ushered into another last minute meeting with yet another specialist this morning, who wasn't able to give us any answers, I began to empathize with the doctors. Often times at my job people will come to me asking for answers about why their phone isn't working. Sometimes there's no logical reason for why it isn't working. Having worked in the wireless industry for five years, I have a pretty good idea of how a cell phone works, but still have situations in which no amount of troubleshooting will result in answers or solutions. Obviously the human body is an amazing example of God's creation. A cell phone and network in no way compares to the complexity. I'm beginning to think that Doctors feel pretty helpless quite often.

After each meeting with our doctors, it's a struggle - all sorts of thoughts and pictures pound my head. Wondering how my baby will look with a million 'lines' (wires, IV's, tubes etc.) sticking out of her body. Wondering how I will handle the surgeries, finances, work, food etc. etc. As my mind starts to spin out of control, there's only one thing that keeps me steady- the Word of God! I have determined in my heart that no matter what happens to me, I will not stop trusting in the Word of God! Job 13:15.



  1. Chris,
    Remember the father who's daughter had died and the people were telling him to send Jesus away because his daughter was dead? "Do not be afraid any longer, only beleive." Just believe and take it one day at a time. Know that you have family and friends,but most of all Jesus who will carry you when you get tired.

  2. God is so amazing isn't He? He is in control at all times-- The almighty Physician, Our provider, Our Comfort, Our strength, He is so faithful, He always takes care of us...His Word Never Changes!!!
