Just a quick update to let you all join us in praise to God for the mercies He has shown us, especially in the last nine months. Several different helps during this time have helped us gain some really good improvements. After over 3 1/2 years of intense struggles with debilitating health, we are very excited to make some visible progress. We have a long way to go, but we are encouraged and hopeful.
As mornings are still our hardest time, please pray that we all will be able to join you in worship more and more. Please pray for continued strength and good health for our husband/father, who has taken care of us so amazingly and patiently. We continue to be blessed by your faithful prayers, your physical acts of kindnesses, and your words of encouragement. We thank the Lord for His gift of you in our lives.
Sherry, Brady, and Erin
Addendum: This goes to all you out there, too!
I've waited so long to send something like this out on our church's e-mail loop! Erin had gotten "out of the woods" a bit last summer, but not in a way that we were really sure about it. And Brady and I were still in a very dark, scary place as we headed into winter. In fact, it wasn't until this spring that we started feeling like we were heading into a bright, open spot; even though, we had started to see some positive things (a little light) from the help of the SCD (diet) and our doctor, by Christmastime. (We started seeing the doctor I'm referring to in November.)
We started drinking the alkaline water in April. There is something to this water - No. Doubt. About it. Yippee and hip, hip, hooray!
We still have a very long way to go, but we're getting out in the world some now, instead of watching it turn as we look out our windows. I don't feel like an alien imposter anymore when I go to the store. My time "out and about," albeit short, no longer feels like a spaceship has just set me down for a quick peek at Earth's inhabitants. We're part of things. It is so wonderfully cool!
