And then all of a sudden, it was crystal clear what matters in our life and what doesn’t…

It’s been a whirlwind for the Davis family over the past couple of months as Jamie’s dad, Paul has been diagnosed with ALS. Through the sadness, anger, confusion and fear of it all, we’re choosing above all else to be thankful.

THANKFUL for strong marriages that we have to look up to like Paul and Jane’s that are a beautiful picture of the wedding vows “in sickness and in health”.

THANKFUL that God doesn’t call us to go through hard things alone, and that he has given us an incredible community of friends and family who are prayer warriors and are in this with us.

THANKFUL for research, medicine, doctors and money that is being raised to hopefully cure this terrible disease.

THANKFUL for God’s comforting words that we have been reading, understanding and trusting in a whole new light.

THANKFUL for an unforgettable family trip to Jamaica and for another upcoming generous trip to Mexico where we can spend quality, intentional time together as a family.

THANKFUL that we believe in a God that weeps with us and that we can put our trust in over everything else.

THANKFUL for photography, the way that it stops a moment in time and for Nancy Ray who generously took these pictures that our family will cherish forever.

THANKFUL for this new calling on our lives to raise awareness and money for this terrible, incurable disease.

THANKFUL that through it all, it is well with our souls.

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” Colossians 3:15

If you feel lead, would you join us in praying for Paul’s health? We would be so grateful!
