Answered Prayer


A few weeks ago Gary was reunited with his daughter Athena after a horrible court battle with the end result being that she was removed from his life for almost 6 years.  It was a time of hurt for both father and daughter.  


Now an adult, Athena has choose to come and stay with us for the summer.  She arrived today...  and a healing has began.  

Who says God doesn't answer prayer?

I remember when you wrote about this and how sad it all was. I am so happy for Gary and for you and your whole family. Thanks for all the hugs and kind thoughts you and Gracie have forwarded to me and Samson. We will be OK. I am so thrilled to see that picture of Gary and his daughter.

Awesome!!! We sometimes wonder if and when God will answer our prayers, but when he does, the timing and the way is always just right and perfect!!

May it be a wonderful summer of healing and memories made in the days ahead
