Love, Joy, Hope and Lots of Food

Its hard to pick out which pictures for the awesome dinner I should put on. We all went to Ed and Elaine’s for dinner. Ed, Christina and everyone else helped out in the preps and this time mom actually sat and ate with us....



This is where the kids were ready with full tummy to get into the gifts and of course….desert .....clean up.



The next day we got set up on Skype….its pretty cool how small world this has become…the Marton cousins were on, we spoke with several states at the same time


One of the days Adina my sister had one of her friends come over and have a photo shoot of our family.

Well, Christmas 2010 has come and gone and with joyful, ecstatic hearts we have all been so blest. Not knowing what lay ahead……but TRUE to HIS WORD, GOD DID IT AGAIN. Every thing that needed to be in place was in place…even the small detail of the truck that delivered the oxygen for me was there waiting in the driveway by the time we arrived in Windsor...... daily nursing care…with the best nurse in town…Nandor…..

Its hard to explain all the family and friends we had a chance to connect with…..basically Windsor is my birthplace…where I lived the first 20 years of my life so I had school friends, church friends and relatives all there….

The Lord has given myself and my family much…..as you probably know going through this not easy but in a sense its not hard because every day He gives us the grace we need and all that overflowing grace He comforts and prepares us for the day, the wonderful day when we get to see Him.

I can’t wait…..

In His Mighty Hands,
Miriam

    Miriam it was great to see and talk to you all on Skype this Christmas. It reminded me of the many Marton get togethers we have had over the years. We love you and think often of the great times we had growing up in Windsor together. We pray for you and your family often. Your transparent faith and trust in Christ is such an inspiration and blessing to us all. You are forever loved; Rob & Sheila and the boys.
