A Memorable Day!!

This post is all about great news and greater news!

First of all, Tanner's headaches are improving! They are still occurring on and off, but, they're not constant anymore! Praise the Lord! Please join us in praying that the medication will continue working.

Secondly, the best news. We had a nice day playing, shopping, Tanner helped Jon repair a leaking shower and went swimming with his friend Matt. In the evening, I found Tanner reading books in his closet (one of his favorite morning activities :)) and told him it was time for dinner. He signed "I love Jesus. I want to pray to Jesus to live with me." I called Jon into the room and we sat together while Tanner copied Jon and prayed to ask Jesus into his heart! After praying Tanner clapped and was really excited, he said he was making music (by clapping) and we told him he was making music with the angels who were rejoicing that Jesus is now living in Tanner's heart. He was also thrilled that he will be going to heaven with Jesus.

What a joyful, memorable day!

God is SO WONDERFUL!! The best news is of this precious child accepting Him as Lord and Savior, and looking forward to Heaven as a more wonderful and better place.

The second best is the news on the headaches. It just tears at our hearts watching him suffer -- this is wonderful!!

Much love, MOM and DAD
