Great News!!

My husband's kidney stone passed last night and he is doing much better!
Thank you all for your prayers. It was so encouraging to read your comments and know that you all were praying for him.

I also want to give thanks for something else that happened this week.
When our youth group was having their meeting on Tuesday night, they started smelling smoke. All of the kids were evacuated, then the leaders started looking around trying to find the problem. They finally found one of the fluorescent lights smoking. They called my husband and he went out there and found that one of the ballasts in the light was so hot that it had started melting and smoking. He disconnected the power from the light until we can get it fixed.
We're so thankful that they were meeting that night. I don't want to think about what could have happened if no one had been there.

O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
--Psalm 136:1

God is so faithful!!



  1. Melaine,
    That is great news. I know he is feeling so much better. I wonder what kind of stone he passed. Diet might help. Mine was calcium oxylate (spell). The dr. will tell him.
    God Bless,

  2. YES!!!! I am just so glad for your husband that this is over now! But about the light, our flourescent kitchen light has been acting up. It won't turn on right away, sometimes takes it ten minutes. My husband says it's safe to just leave it on, but I don't think so now!!! So you my have saved some people from having bad future problems!

  3. Praise the Lord! He does take care of us in the most wonderful ways! He is our Healer and Protector!
