Sweet and Lovable, a Delight to Everyone
Julieann, the eighth of the Green children, was born May 2, 2008. A delightful baby from the beginning, Julieann quickly stole the hearts of Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters. In late October 2008, our precious girl was diagnosed with infantile spasms, a rare form of epilepsy. As her illness unfolded, we began documenting her progress on this page so that friends and family would know specifically how to pray for her. We are so thankful to the Lord that her outcome so far is very good. For now, Julieann is seizure-free. We know that the seizures could return tomorrow, or in 10 years - so please continue to pray for her.

THANK YOU, LORD

 

"I thank You for the sun that shines

On soil and sea and grasses;

Whose warming rays bring forth the flowers

In fragrant, showy masses.

 

SRF

 

I thank You for the wind that blows,

Disturbing air and ocean;

That tosses clouds and kites on high,

And keeps the leaves in motion.

 

SRF

 

I thank You for the rain that comes

To water fields and flowers,

And for the bow of color bright

That follows summer showers.

 

SRF

 

I thank You for the food which grows

In fields and lakes and mountains

I thank You for the waters cool --

For wells and flowing fountains.

 

SRF

 

I thank You for the big wide world,

With all its love and beauty.

 

SRF

 

And for the joy of living here

I'll try to do my duty."

Nathaniel and Julieann enjoy working together for the evening chores.

 

SRF

And soft hands are a bonus after petting the sheep each day.

 

SRF

Sometimes Nathaniel takes his job a little too seriously.

 

SRF

After sheep-feeding time, it's a race to the house for our evening meal :)
