Lydia has had another good day.  We went swimming together and met a teacher who knew about Fatso.  She shared with us that in her school, they had eleven monarch caterpillars this year, and none of them made it to be a butterfly.  As we go out more in our community, we meet people we know, and those we don't.  Lydia said a few times today how happy she was to make a new friend.  

Lydia continues to delight us with her sweet spirit, her big smiles, and her laughter.  She saw some friends today, and enjoyed laughing with them, and sticking jube jubes on their foreheads.  We are thankful for carefree times like these when she can just be a teenager!

We have had many requests for more information about the homecoming celebration and ribbon waving.
So here are the details: Thursday November 1 at 5 pm, you are invited to park in the parking lot, or along our lane, and bring your tattered, weather worn lime green ribbons to wave in celebration of the many answered prayers and the progress that Lydia has made that has allowed her to return home.  "Yeah God!", as Lydia would cheer!  We will hope for sunshine, but will do it rain or shine.   We gather to welcome Lydia home, to cheer her on in her recovery,  and to recognize the power of prayer. 

Psalm 95:1  Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
