Alan Update 2

I just wanted to let everyone know that Alan's bone scan came back normal which of course is GREAT!! God is already answering prayers for us. We are still heading to LR tomorrow come hell or high water...and I'm not even joking about the high water b/c Arkansas is flooded thanks to Gustav, and we were without power from 10 last night until 5:30 this afternoon. Again, thank you Gustav. And let me tell you, it's no fun sitting in a dark house with rainy and windy weather when you are already depressed enough. Me, Alan and Sydney went to Wal-Mart for entertainment (I'm sure my family in Arizona and California are laughing about our Wal-Mart trip). haha Anyway, back to the main subject. We are still not 100% certain that we will be staying in Little Rock tomorrow, but we are taking extra clothes just in case. Just keep us in your prayers b/c I know they are working.

Carson is back to himself today and is back at home with us tonight. I'm sooooo glad he is better. I hated to leave town with him feeling so bad.

So many of you have called and left messages and I apologize that we have not returned calls, but it's really been crazy around here and then the power was off and we did not have a land line phone, but we do now thanks to our walmart trip and we bought a real cheap one and I don't think it works that well. Anyway, we are not avoiding calls, it's just been crazy.
Love to all!!

Alan & Melissa, I know I haven't called yet, but I'm horrible with words. I have had this scripture in my head for a couple of weeks now and I wasn't sure why but now it's an encouragement to me and I hope to you also. Psalms 121:1,2
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. You are in our prayers and in so many others. I know that God still answers prayers! We love you all and don't hesitate to let us know of anything that we can do.

Melissa and Alan- my mom has been keeping me updated about everything. Its funny, how sometimes you might wonder, "What would happen if I got really sick? What would happen to my faith?" You and Alan have a blessing even though it may not feel like it, because you can answer that question. God gives us both the faith to believe and the hope to pull through whatever the outcome. It seems like healing is in Alan's future and Im thankful for that. Every day His mercies are new! Thanks for taking the time to update us about what's happening.
