Milton, here for Kristy:

God works miracles. Kristy is home.

When she was checked in at the Hospice Center, I was told she was not going home soon. It looked bleak, but God answers prayer and she is home. She is very weak but has brightened up.

Medically, the prognosis is still the same but our faith and trust in Him is strong. God is more than able!

She has witnessed God's goodness and love every step of the way and that continues. I will share how she let her light shine bright even in her darkess hours. Jesus is in her and He is the light that outshines all darkness.

The McGraw Community Hospice Center team did a super job for Kristy and me. We will forever be grateful.

Kristy is home!
Kristy is home!
Kristy is home!

God is good.

Ok, this is a bonafide Snoopy dance occasion. Kristy, I am sooooo happy that you're home with your dh and family. Milton, Jennifer, Julie, et al, I'm so happy for you that you'll be able to be with Kristy at home, it's just so much more comfortable. PTL.
Praying for y'all.

PRAISE THE LORD from Whom all blessings flow! That bed must feel like a five-star, for there's no place like home.

Prayers continue...

Kristy, I'm happy you're home with Milton! We'll continue to pray for you.

How wonderful that Kristy is at home and not in the center anymore. I'm sure being in her own bed feels wonderful to her, but have y'all considered setting up a bed in a room where she can look out the window and not be in the bedroom all the time? Others I've known with hospice care at home have enjoyed that. Just a thought.

My prayers continue for the family. All of you!

Hey, that gorgeous bed is another of Kristy's creations. She bought an old headboard and recovered it. What a gal.

It's my wind-down therapy - just love it!!!..................I'm praying and believing God for a miracle of miracles!!! That's the kind of God we serve! Thank you, for your encouragement in the midst of the storm, --- that's what it's all about! It's a GOD THING!

YES! He is more than able! What a miracle before our eyes. Kristy is home and in her luscious bed. The smile on your face holding her hand it is so evident the JOY that is in your heart.
I have been non stop praying for you and Kristy for weeks now and for your daughters and your grandchildren too.
What a wonderful mother's day gift from our Lord to be in the home that she enjoys so much.

You are both amazing.

Milton and Kristy, so glad to know you're back home. PTL!! As my favorite Band Conductor, the late Lawrence Welk would say, "Wunnerful, wunnerful, wunnerful."

This is an email quote from our dear neighbor friends who are now back in Syracuse, NY, for the summer wrote;

It's fantastic how she keeps on keeping on. The faith of your family
and those surrounding you all is indeed a huge blessing. It's a blessing to all of us who know you, who pray for you and who love you. Bob C

You are constantly in our thoughts and prayers.

We love you dearly,

Mom and Dad

So thankful that Kristy is home & is looking great. She will soon be wearing her special color (teal?) once again!! David & I think of both of you often with love & prayers.
I called Margaret Cribb Byars (Kristy's SEBC roommate) to let her know about Kristy.
We love you both. God is our strength & shield.

Milton & Kristy,
I tried this yesterday and it would not go thru so I will try again. I was reading the blogs from Sunday thru Wed. at my desk at work and had to fight to keep the tears from flowing. I do not why God allows some people to suffer more than others but if I understood that then I would be God but all He asks of me is to just TRUST HIM. Jer. 29 tells us He knows the plans we just trust Him. I can't say I know how you fell because I have not walked where you are tonite. Just be assured as with other across America I am praying for you and your family. God is awesome
read Psalm 91

Whoo Hoo! Praise God she's home! Oh my... just look at you two with smiles that could light up Alltel Stadium. The Light in you both just shines so brightly. What a precious blessing you both are to us. We are keeping up through this blog, as we don't wish to intrude during this precious time you have together, but please know that we are still praying, as are so many others, and we are here, just a phone call away, if you need anything. Anything at all.

We are so happy Kristy is home. :-) God IS so good.

We love you,
Dawn and Skip Scott

LOL - I'll bet at the Hospice Center they're scratching their heads! :D God is indeed good!

While we know the prognosis remains the same, how joyful to have Kristy home.

Give her my love and an extra hug.

God tv shows revival in Lakeland flarida and they are having miracles....I had them pray for Kristy...

I am so glad that the people at the revivial in Lakeland are praying for Kristy. You two should log on and watch what is happening. I am in California and a friend of mine was watching the revival on the internet in her living room and the power of God fell so mightily she was overwhelmed and just basqued in His prescence! I really believe that you both would be blessed by seeing these miracles.

Your faith continues to amaze and encourage so many people. Your love story on this blog site is the best I've ever read!

Loving you and praying for you on the left coast! Our internet prayer team of over 100 is praying for you also!

Love in the Healing name of Jesus!

What great news that Kristy is well enough to be at home again. Prayer does, indeed, change things, and there are many, many people in cyberspace who are continually praying for Kristy, and all those who love her.

What a testament to God's love the two of you are, I continue to pray for your and the family.
Find joy in each day.

How wonderful to see Kristy in the luxorious bed SHE created, and both of your smiling faces! GLORY TO GOD! Kristy is still as beautiful as ever. And her books, blog, decorating, cooking? That's because she is filled with God's creativity.

Prayers continually going up for Kristy & Milton and family. We love you,

Nancy & family

Milton and Kristy,
I'm so happy that you're home. Kristy, you look beautiful in that lovely bed. The smiles on your faces radiate your love and happiness at being home together. Thank you for your encouragement and for your witness of God's love.

You're both special to everyone who knows you, whether in cyberspace or in person. You've touched many hearts.

I will continue to pray. Love you, Lavada
