I'm here in the hospital just waiting. Uncle Troy and aunt Heather just got here. They brought their two youngest kids: Kaylee and Ethan. They are both so cute. I'll have to post a picture soon.
Some other people are here too. I am just waiting for the birth of the little one. We arrived here at about 3:30 pm. Thank you for all your prayers and support. We really appreciate it. I'll post some pictures soon.
As many of you already know, we lost a child this last week. He/she was definitely loved by everyone we knew. I am glad God gave us this child and I know He will use this experience for His perfect will. God is so good and gracious towards us. We deserve nothing and He gives us everything. Even in times of trial, God proves good. Yes...even better.
It is a hard trial but we can put our hope in God. I thank Him for allowing me to know Him. I have already learned so much from this experience and have made stronger relationships. God is in control. And He has planned this day from even before time began. Hearing the news at the tournament was good for me and my other siblings because we had so many strong Christian friends there. God is always good and continually proves His faithfulness to us.
I want to thank all those who have prayed and have been so kind to our family. There are too many names to say but thank you. Word is spreading fast and God will use this child in a huge way. We might not have wanted it this way. We probably would have chosen that the baby be born fine and healthy. We may have wanted it alive. We may have wanted to hold, feed, and play with this small gift from God. But He knows what is best and He will do what is best.
Thank You God. Thank You for Your love. Let the little children run to You.
Speech club was great. I did an apologetic card for Mr. McMurray and he really helped me understand what I probably should do and say when giving one. I also did impromptu while I was there. That was fun. Victoria is an awesome coach. Then, outside, I did a duo with my sister, Emma. We've changed it a bit since then but I think it's for the better. Aaron really helped with it. You're such a great guy, Aaron! Thanks a lot!
I can't wait till next week. That's the BIG speech & debate tournament for Medford. It's going to be wonderful. I hope I'll see many of you all there. If not, then some other time. Oh, and I also got a haircut. It's a little shorter than the hair on my profile picture. So, yeah. Lots of stuff is happening and I actually have (or get) to go to singing class tonight. Hopefully I'll be able to carry a tune soon...
My name is David Kruse and I am 18 years old. I love God and His inspired Word. I also thank Him continually for a wonderful loving family. Some hobbies: playing piano, reading, listening to stuff on my ipod, and singing.
