Make a Wish
What a marvelous blessing to receive the news that Shafer will be an upcoming “Make A Wish” recipient! We are in the process of setting up our home interview with the dream committee assigned to Shafer’s case. How exciting, yet surreal, to think that we are now one of those families that I used to read about.
God continues to put us in unusual places. Our lives are still overflowing with crazy good and crazy bad. When the Lord is at work, Satan works overtime throwing his fiery darts to thwart all the goodness that abounds. So, we ask for your continued prayers as we travel this slippery slope.
We have lots of things to celebrate this month. Shanel, our 6-year-old, accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior and was baptized on May 6. I was honored to be the guest speaker for two mother/daughter banquets and the girls—Shayli, Sharayah, and Shanel—provided the special music. This was their first time to sing publicly, outside of our church, and it was beautiful to see the Lord use their testimony in song. I am certain that God has something in store for “The Daves Sisters.”
Mother’s Day this year held special meaning as Shafer and I celebrated with shared kidneys!
The depth of my love for him is unexplainable…it just reminds me of how big and wide and deep and endless the love of God really is. All of the children provided such beautiful gifts…many were handmade and creatively written. Thank you, God, for blessing me with five precious angels…Mother’s Day could not have been sweeter.
Shanel graduated from kindergarten and Shayli from 5th grade. I just can’t believe her time at Brainerd Baptist School has come to a close. Sharayah finished 3rd grade and it is official that I will be homeschooling the children next school year.
