really good news...


I won't keep you in suspense... we were approved for the new health insurance!  While we prepared ourselves for a month long application process- the whole approval took 2 weeks!

Kristina Schultz of the Arneson Ovsak Agency in Moorhead, called Rick yesterday morning and announced the great news.  She was willing to research the internet, make phone calls and problem solve for us.  I know it took hours of her time, but she was determined.

She found Minnesota Comprehensive Health Association or MCHA, administered by Medica.  We now have to make two health insurance payments for 6 months while I sit out the pre-existing condition limitation.  But at the end of 6 months I will be able to drop our old insurance and start the new!  Its the window we waited for!! Its the very thing, you all have prayed for.  I am convinced you all make a very big difference in my life!



Our mailbox continues to be a source of unending joy...

This is a sampling of what arrived throughout the past couple of weeks!  There have been several anonymous cards with donations and gift cards- thank you!  Superman and I continue to search our hearts and make sure we are good stewards of your gifts to us.




 My friend Verna sent this to me- she says in the past these have been referred to as the "broken star" pattern.  But now she will rename them to the "the star of hope, with the sun shining in the middle." 
The hours that go into making these, not to mention the beautiful crochet work- thank you Verna! 





My friend Nancy made and sent this card to me- her whole 5th grade class prays for me each day- I'm so honored. Thank you 5th graders!  I feel your prayers working for me.  



My friend Shannon honored me with this sweet surprise... a registration for (in)RL April 27th and 28th.  Our sweet Sara's story will premiere on Friday... go to (in)courage and follow the links for all the details!  Hope you will join in too... 


The sun is shining today, but even through the rain that poured yesterday, I felt nothing but healing light shining down on me.  Love and blessings to you all!

  12. Hallelujah! I have been praying and hoping that this would work!!!! It broke my heart to hear of this additional challenge, especially when I couldn't do anything practical. You don't know me, but ever since Sara Frankl went to go be with Jesus, I've checked in on you and decided to be another h-less Sara prayer partner for you since she's not here. I'm swallowing tears at this good news. I'll continue to pray for perseverance and provision as you get through the waiting period. ~ Sara
