Something to make you smile.....

Cousin Darren is a saint - you remember him - the "bone pickin' up" cousin! :-), well he is packing up Nathan's room and belongings at his house and moving it all to our shop - he offered - honest! He sent me a picture.......
Nathan's friend Ben has a precious mom that has been doing laundry - I think we'll have to send her $$ for her water/soap bill :-)

Bless Ben's mom's heart! That's a lot of clothing to be washing...I can only imagine how many t-shirts are in that pile. We know how he loves his t-shirts!

I'm constantly praying for Nathan and for peace over your family! Remember that God is the great physician and is omnipresent!

My name is Katie Bedient. Ben is my brother and Julie is my mother and I can assure you that she will not accept your money at all! She loves to help! :) And besides it wasn't too much laundry.. I also found a song that I would love to share with you! :) It's by Kutless and is called What Faith Can Do (I'm sure you've heard of it):

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes
And make a new beginning

Anyone can feel the ache
You think it's more than you can take
But you're stronger
Stronger than you know

Don't you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

I've seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn't ever end
Even when the sky is falling
I've seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That's what faith can do

It doesn't matter what you've heard
Impossible is not a word
It's just a reason
For someone not to try

Everybody's scared to death
When they decide to take that step
Out on the water
It'll be alright

Life is so much more
Than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way
If you keep believing

If you would like the song I'd be happy to deliver it on a CD. :) It's just a perfect song for this situation. I'd like you to know that I'm praying for Nathan and your family. I've known Nathan a while through Ben and I also was in the same class as Brandon. Let me know if my mom and I can do anything else for you guys! :)

Re: the photo - Now THAT'S the Nathan I remember! I know you anxiously await another room in your house like that when he comes home from the hospital.
