And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

Special Birthday!

To catch you up to speed, this is a post about little Nate from January of this year:


"Praise God, for HE is merciful. We got the results back from Nate's MRIs, and all scans are clear…no cancer. The doctors are very pleased, and were excited to be able to provide this news. When chemo started last January he was given a 15% chance to make it 3 months, and he made it six months before it came back worse than ever. When he began radiation in June and ended at the end of July, he was given six weeks to six months of borrowed time, and here he is…TO GOD BE ALL PRAISE AND GLORY. Nate truly is a miracle from God every day he is alive. I am not saying any of us deserve this, I am, however, saying that God had mercy on us and we will forever give HIM the glory for his healing. We thank all the doctors and nurses who have seen us through this. Many people have spent many hours laboring over him to help him get to this point. We also want to thank everyone around the world for your much needed prayers and for helping us along the way. We have been praying about larger ways to give back and help others, and we will begin on those things in the near future, using what God has done for us as a way to show HIS love to others.

You have all been praying for Nate, you might remember his picture from B's Surprise B-day Party! We were all celebrating that Nate was cancer free! His picture is about half way down the page.

Well, this weekend, we got to celebrate Nate's 5th birthday! How awesome to be there to celebrate one more year that wasn't promised. However, all thanks to the Lord, Nate survived!!

Crossing the street, from all the fun that was had at the park!

Back inside, dyeing Easter eggs.

Sweet Nate!

Getting ready to blow out his candles!
Praise the Lord as we never knew if this birthday would be celebrated!

Two cancer survivors!!
Posing with Mr. B! How about Nate's smile!?!?

Please continue to pray for Nate. He has started having some pain again and it's harder for him to walk. These are signs the docs said to watch for that would point to the return of the, he was rushed back in this past weekend for MRIs, etc.

They did find another tumor in his brain. So, please say extra special prayers for little Nate. They will be doing a Spinal Tap on Tuesday. Pray! Pray!! Pray!!!
