Update

Hello Everyone!!!
Well, Parker had his 8 month appointment last week. He weighed 18.3 lbs and he was 27 inches long. He only had to get one shot. That is his last appointment until he is a year old. And it was his last appointment with his pediatrician here in Alabama, Dr. Levin. Dr. Levin is a great pediatrician!! I would recommend him to anyone. We loved him and will miss him!
I don't think I have let my fellow bloggers know that we will be moving to Austin, TX in February. Most of you already know. Derek and I have been feeling called there for a while but we were waiting for God to open the door and He did. My brother and his family will also be moving out there. Derek, my brother, and my dad are going to start a moving business there. We will also be helping with a church plant called Free Chapel. My brother-in-law and sister will be planting Free Chapel in Austin in Septemeber 2008. Derek and I are excited, but sad at the same time. We know, that we know, that we know, it God's will for us to move. BUT that is not always easy. I think it will be easier once we get there, but I have had a hard time with it lately. We LOVE our church(Church of the Highlands). We are very involved(choir, greeting, small groups) and we are going to miss it. But hopefully God will use us to provide a church for someone else to love as much as we love Highlands. And I know we will love it too.
Also, my mom found out in October that she had breast cancer. She has already had a double masectomy done, which went great. They are confident they got all the cancer. But she has to undergo chemo and radiation for the next few months. We know that God is going to give her strength, joy, and energy to get through this. Satan is trying hard to bring us down, but it is not working because we know that God is our provider, healer, and encourager. My mom's family and friends have been unbelievable during this time and we are all so thanksful. With that said, a lot has been going on in our lives. But God is so good!! He is SO GOOD to us! That was a LONG UPDATE! Be praying for us and our family. Thanks!
