Notice the leash I've got tied to her Dora rod...that's a key piece of equipment.
Just look at that intensity!
Here she's getting more hot dog to feed the fish!
The second day was cooler - so we put her puffy coat OVER her life jacket. Let's just say she was "bundled". She didn't care what she had to wear - she just wanted to keep fishing!
Here she's really getting after it!
We ended up not catching anything - but as I always tell Lindsey:
"Fishing isn't about catching fish, it's about being OUT there." I'm so proud of my girl and I love fishing with her!
I love you my fishing buddy,
-Chris / Dadda

I'm so proud of how she has persevered in the midst of the pain and darkness caused by lyme disease. If I was the one with the disease I'd be mean as a snake (I'm not a great patient). She has continued to push forward, striving to be a great mom and wife even though her body seems to be warring against her daily.
We haven't written on this blog in quite a while but to those who still read us please keep praying. Pray for my wife's complete healing in this 8th year marriage!
Baby - you rock and I love you with all my heart! Here's to a new year!
Grace and Peace

The last few weeks have been so difficult in so many ways. The pain has grown more intense (especially at night)...my heart has been fluttering pretty much all day long. I'm not going to lie; it has been pretty scary. Most nights I end up in tears begging God for mercy. Two nights ago, I had a pretty terrible episode. Chris was across the street with our neighbors...and I called him to come home. I thought for sure I was headed to the ER. Every part of me was tingling...my skin was crawling and the pain was so crazy! Chris asked our neighbors to come pray over me. It was such a sweet time...and after the time of prayer my body began to settle down. Why do I doubt God? I know that He is my Healer. I think I am just so overwhelmed. I am tired of having to tell Eliana goodbye every morning. I am tired of laying in bed. I am tired of my feet & legs hurting so much that I don't want to walk. But, I am really trying to hang on and trust that He is in control. Please keep praying for me. Pray for Chris...he has SO MUCH on his shoulders right now. Pray for provision for all of our medical bills!! Pray that the Lord would give me perspective in this season.
You Are My Refuge
With my voice I cry out to the Lord;
with my voice I plead for mercy to the Lord.
I pour out my complaint before him;
I tell my trouble before him.
When my spirit faints within me,
you know my way!
In the path where I walk
they have hidden a trap for me.
Look to the right and see:
there is none who takes notice of me;
no refuge remains to me;
no one cares for my soul.
I cry to you, O Lord;
I say, “You are my refuge,
my portion in the land of the living.”
Attend to my cry,
for I am brought very low!
Deliver me from my persecutors,
for they are too strong for me!
Bring me out of prison,
that I may give thanks to your name!
The righteous will surround me,
for you will deal bountifully with me.
