the attack continues...

Yesterday we got a call from school that Kami had falled down and that her wrist was swollen. Heidi took her to the doctor for an x-ray and they said that it looks as if there is a little fine line on one of her bones signifying a possible hairline fracture. She has this little cast that holds her arm firm and still. On top of that, her left eye was filled with goop and was pink. You guessed it, pink eye. This morning, Heidi is taking her to the doctor to get some eye drops for her.

Last night Taylor was up alot of the night with restlessness and sickness. I didn't hear alot of it, but Heidi was the one most disturbed and affected by the late night shinanigins. Our kids are getting hit like a hurricane lately.

I sat Kami (our soon to be 7 year old) down last week and asked her if she realized what her father did for a job. She, without hesitation, said, "Preach about Jesus." I told her that what that meant was that we, as a family, were not liked very much by the Devil because we were trying to help people grow closer to Jesus, and that makes the Devil very mad. Because it makes the devil very mad, I told her that he likes to make our lives harder for us by making us sick and frustrated and tired. I told her that he tries to make us not get along and get into fights with each other. She looked at me like I was high. I didn't know how to share with her that it was partly my fault that she was put in harms way without apologizing for it. I want her to know what we are really doing as a family and what we are up against. Over time, she will come to realize these things. For now, I just have to keep praying a hedge around my family as these attacks are mounted against us.

Some days I have to laugh, simply because if I don't laugh, I will cry.

The devil is running rampid lately. It 's almost like a renewed charge to destroy lives. I'm not sure why, all of a sudden, this is happening to people in general lately. It's almost like his quota is low or lacking for this year.
Keep on swinging, brother - til your hand is frozen to the sword.

I know you probably know this since you're a pk but I know that even with all the crap I was dealt because my father was a pastor and I went to church, I never wanted to 'trade' dads or occupations for a minute. People knew my dad as a compassionate man who loved people, regardless of who they were and what they had done. People see that in you too, Jason and your daughters will someday realize what an amazing calling God has placed on your life and hopefully will want to be a part of that ministry along with you and Heidi. Keep pressing on.
