I'm Still Here!

I just wanted to drop in an say hi and let you all know I'm still alive and kickin'!

Okay, so I've been Super-Slacker-Blogger as of late, but who can blame me when I have this, this, this, this, and this to enjoy right in my own neighborhood? (Amanda, you need to get your butt in a bathing suit and get over here STAT!)

Today is the first day this week that we haven't made it down the street to swim (the day is still young...that could easily change). But I promise I haven't forgotten all of you! We're just enjoying this phenomenal blessing God has given to us and not missing a moment of being able to take advantage of having such an amazing facility right at our fingertips. Besides, what other ways are there to entertain yourselves in the middle of July in the blistering Texas heat? Anything without water just doesn't appeal. Also, it's a good way to keep the house somewhat clean when there's no one here to mess it up. Although it does interfere with meal planning. The fact that I fed my kids cereal for dinner the other night is a great example.

In other news, I have officially been off medication (against my doctor's best wishes, of course) for 6 weeks and have remained SEIZURE FREE! Did you read that? SEIZURE FREE my friends! With NO MEDICINE! This was something I prayed HEAVILY over and every scripture God led me to told me that He was going to take care of it - that medicine was not the answer. This explained heartily why I was still having so many seizures while on anti-seizure medication - because I wasn't supposed to be relying on it, but instead relying on the Lord for healing. All glory goes to Him. Thank you all for your prayers for me and my family. They are being answered!! :o)

Now I'm off to shower (and possibly swim - who knows)!

Happy Day!
