The Somewhat Neglected Blog

I really didn't intend to go so long without posting... And even now, I am only going to jot down a couple of things for which you might pray for:

  • I am having an MRI tomorrow at 1:00pm. This is the routine MRI of my head to ensure that the spots on my brain from TSC haven't grown (one in particular), and also to examine whether or not any others have developed. If all goes well, the specialist I go to visit in July will tell me that I don't have to have another one for two more years (as he did for my last MRI back in 2007). Of course my husband will be accompanying me, as he is always the calming factor when I have to have such tests performed~
  • Keep praying for my brother. I'm not fully comfortable posting all of the details here, but do keep praying for him. The Lord has provided some sweet, grace-saturated times for me to talk with my parents, and I hope those only continue in the days and months to come. My mom has found what looks to be the ideal place for my brother to go for extended treatment and care, so we are all cautiously hopeful that he will follow through. While he has to make the decision, I just keep reminding all of my family down there to keep encouraging him and reminding him of why this particular opportunity seems ideal at this point~

That is really all I have for now, but I will leave you with another quote I received in my daily email this morning:

“All change comes from deepening your understanding of the salvation of Christ and living out of the changes that understanding creates in your heart. Faith in the gospel re-structures our motivations, our self-understanding, our identity, and our view of the world. Behavioral compliance to rules without heart-change will be superficial and fleeting.” ~Timothy Keller
