On August 29th my 18 year old had shoulder surgery to repair a tear in his labrum. This is his senior year and he was unable to play football. We have grieved over this, but we have rejoiced in the fact that God is faithful and we trusted that God knew what He was doing during this season in Manning's life. His favorite verse is Philippians 4:13: "I can do everything through HIM who gives me strength. We can weather any season through Him. We are thankful that his injury wasn't any worse than it was and we know that it is minor compared to what others are going through or have been through.
Today, almost three months after the surgery, he is free to ride his motorcycle. Since his last appointment, he has prayed that the doctor would pronounce him healed enough to ride.
I live in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia. I am married to Robert, the love of my life. He makes life interesting and he makes me laugh. We are learning to love this new phase of our lives: the empty nest. Life is good.
