This morning, the UPS truck pulled up to our home and delivered Anna's new meds! She will begin taking it today. Many people have asked me how they should pray. Well, the answer is, I really don't know. Just pray that the Lord's will be done. It would be nice to have Anna feeling better and more "herself" for a few months, but if not, then I pray that the transplant would be expedited so as to get this lovely young lady back to health. =) Anna's blood work was perfect yesterday! We rejoice. Anna will have an appointment next Wednesday and then she will get to take a week off. We will be heading to Oregon for a much needed time away. Every other year we have the opportunity to stay, for free, at the Cannon Beach Conference Center with their "pastor's get away special". This has been a tradition that we have loved and look forward to every other year. We always enjoy our walks to the beach, yes even in February! It is amazing to me that the Lord has allowed us to have beautiful weather every time we go! We love going to Haystack Rock, getting candy from the candy shop, and eating Mo's clam chowder while looking out at the Mighty Pacific Ocean! Most of all, we love spending time together, being refreshed from the day to day stuff that tends to bog us down.

After our time in Cannon Beach, we plan to take a few days to see family in Astoria. Please pray that all will be healthy and that our time would be the recharge that we need! We will be getting back in time for Anna's appointment and then on to couples' retreat. I am very excited about the coming weeks!
