Very Cute! BTW after listening to the church service, it sounded like LU's campus band on CD for one of the last songs. (Lauren Boyd)? if not who ever was on the CD sounded like her.

I love doggies.

I am new to your blog, I found it from the lovely blog hopping. Amazing, inspiring, and touching story you and your family have.

God has shown his love so much through this situation.

In most cases I wouldn't really be trying to look like a dog's twin. Lol. But your dog is so cute it works out just fine! She looks like she's not only smiling, but laughing with happiness to see her person-daddy!

Tim and Jamie Edwards said...

I have followed your story since January. My husband and I live in Thailand, so I am usually thinking about you guys while you are sleeping. Blessing to all of you and may God's grace be upon you as you continue to navigate this journey.

Mother of Invention said...

Too funny! Like all those pet-owner look alike contests!
Been following your amazing story from Ontario, Canada and wish you all the best. Very inspiring for me, who has a lot of health problems (diabetic for 42 years and all the complications that go with that) to see how hopeful you are. Thanks.

Renee said...

OMG'osh!! Those are the absolute most funniest pictures I think I've ever seen!! LOL!! How adorable!

Praying for health & happiness for you and your family.

God Bless you

Nate,

I just watched the Sunday service from Nag's Head Church. I've been reading your blog for months, but actually hearing you relate your story made it even more amazing. What an awesome God we serve! I'm sitting here just worshipping Him because He is so good.

I remember when our son was in NICU 6 years ago. God was simply amazing at each step of the way. We watched miracle after miracle happen. Even the doctors couldn't believe with their medical knowledge that some of these miraculous healings were occurring.

I also know I had some weird looks from people when I actually said that I was grateful for Matthew's premature birth and his NICU stay. Without God allowing that to happen to our family, there were many people who's lives wouldn't have been touched by his story. Ok, we didn't touch as many lives as YOUR story has but God has different plans for all of us. LOL :)

I'm anxiously waiting to see your blog hit 500,000!

God bless you guys, give a big hug and kiss to Tricia and Gwyneth, and know you're getting lots of prayers from Far West Texas!

Hugs from El Paso,
Karla and family

joyfulmom said...

I forgot to add that we're praying for your trip back to Duke on Tuesday. I'm glad that God's going with you ~ you are never alone. :)

Hugs from El Paso AGAIN,
Karla

Hopesrising said...

Lol cute pictures.
Good luck at Duke on Tuesday. I know my prayers go with You and Tricia.
I to watched the video..here in Michigan. Listening to you tell the story Nate..really put a different spin on things. God is so good and I am so glad you share with us daily.
I also remember my son leaving NICU 26 yrs.ago.Omg I am old. lol So Many miracles happened that I don't think we hear about enough of them.
