After Steven's beautiful post, it reminded me why I love him so much. His strong testimony, love for the gospel and his Savior, has been a strength in our home. It is easy to forget our spouse in our busy lives with work, chasing kids, and church. But through this experience we have rekindled our love for each other, relyed on each other, as we have trusted the Lord. I too have felt like a child, submissive, humble and very dependent on our Heavenly Father. I told a friend today, that I never want this feeling to go away. I have felt our Saviors love, every day!

The last 4 days have had a lot of up's and down's for Britt. In the morning's he has been battling being nausaes. Yesterday and today he started having seizure like activity again. We think they are being brought on by a certain medication for nausea. So we hope they will subside, as the medication gets out of his system.
We have been grateful for better afternoon's, as Britten has been able to "Welcome Home" some of his good friends from their mission. The joy and delight on his face radiates as his friends stop by the hospital, on their way home from the airport. Their embrace was priceless! The Spirit filled the room as they laughed and enjoyed catching up. Britten's life has been blessed over the years, with so many amazing friends!
Last night Elder Schenk had a remarkable thing happen. As he was getting ready for bed his Dad asked him a question. Britt responded in Portuguese. Steven said, "what"? Britt responded again with two simple sentences in Portuguese. Britt's eyes got big and he said, "Did you just hear that? I can't believe that I just said that"! Thrill and excitement over came the three of us. All night, Britt was practicing Portuguese! How elated we were to hear him speak some simple words and sentences, in a language that he has loved.
Britten has lived his life in a manner to invite the Spirit of the Savior to be with him. The Savior in return, stands with His arms open to demonstrate His love and appreciation for him. May we all invite the spirit into our lives, so we can feel our Savior's love.
