Wow what a week!! We have been in prayer for UJ's disability benefits (or lack there of I should say) since the onset of his diagnosis in July 2004. We had a final hearing to determine his eligibility (after being denied 3 times) yesterday in Tulsa. I had been praying and asking everyone I knew to pray too. God had it all under control and proved it by a decision being reached before we even walked into the room. The decision was in our favor and he only had to iron out a few little minor details. We now have to wait (more waiting!) for the back log of applications and we should receive benefits in a few months.
Can I just say ........Whew!!
and THANK YOU LORD!!
This has lifted a huge burden from our family and you could see the relief in Joe's face yesterday as we chowed down on a celebratory Thai Chef lunch then went to Starbux for some latte's (Courtesy of Badoozie's boobah gift card....Thanks Doozie!)
Oh one more thing. Don't go to Garden Ridge looking for seeds or plants of any kind. The name of the store is very deceptive. They only deal in FAKE FLOWERS AND PLANTS. We left empty handed after much anticipation about even going.
OK I am off to Lowes for some REAL plants. :o)
