Ella had a great day. She had a great workout with the physical therapist and even spent 11 solid minutes doing tummy time! This is huge considering she normally does about half that amount.

She also ate a fair amount of apples, albeit off of her binky instead of a spoon. This is a bit of regression, but we figure getting the food in is better than not at all.

Thanks to all of you for all the diaper rash advise. All you moms and grandmothers are so cute with your home remedies. Fortunately, this doesn’t seem to be a yeasty rash, so the Desitin has helped a lot over the last 24+ hours. We’ve been slathering her up every chance we get, and with that, her pain and the rash have pretty much gone away.

And on another positive note, Ella’s “Alma Matter” defeated the Sooners to win the BCS Championship. CONGRATULATIONS GATOR FANS! Yes, the Gator Nation has done it again and their football team is the national champions. I was not able to watch the entire game, but I picked it up early in the 3rd quarter. What an amazing EXCITING game and what a testimony given by the quarterback Tim Tebow.

Not only is he an amazing quarterback, but an incredible individual as well. The announcers talked about his parents work as missionaries and Tim’s contributions as well. You can also see that he’s not ashamed or afraid to share about his relationship with Christ. He did so by the scripture he had referenced on his EyeBlack (John 3:16) which was seen throughout the broadcast, plus giving thanks to his Savior for the game.

So we stand before Our Lord Jesus and thank him for the “game” he has us in as well. Even though times can be incredibly difficult, we do our best to seek his face, and trust him every day for peace and wisdom through the fire of life.

John 3:16
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
