  The number one thing people keep asking me is, "Well, do you believe in miracles?" 
  For me this is a very tricky question.  OF COURSE I believe in miracles.  Of course I believe that God has the ability to make miracles happen.  Of course we are all asking....if there's a miracle waiting to happen....can we PLEASE have it?! This will never stop.  But, all of the asking about miracles really got me thinking....just what is a miracle?
   A miracle to me, is that there is a big beautiful plan, that if we open our minds & mostly our hearts, we can see glimpse's.  It is a miracle, that no.matter.what, we have the opportunity to be eternal families.  It is a miracle that we are here on Earth together learning & growing.  It is a miracle watching people from all over coming together & sharing the tender love of their hearts with each other.  It is a miracle that we can forget all the distractions around us and focus on the true purpose of this life..and believe in it.  With our whole hearts.  It is a miracle seeing a brand new baby join our family.  
  So, yes....YES I believe in miracles.  In fact I believe we overlook most of the miracles happening every single day.  I believe that if it is God's will, for this tumor to miraculously go away, it will.  There is so much peace in that .  Peace that only can come from turning our will over to the Lord.  Today is a miracle.

....for I do know that whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions, and shall be lifted up at the last day.
Alma 36:3

  2. so true chels. love you guys.

  3. Shaw family,
    Please know we are all planning on wonderful miracles here. I'm so grateful to know mandee because I know the family has the love and strength necessary to make this not only positive but somehow turn it into a blessing. We love you all and are praying for you constantly. Stay tough Dylan!

  4. Life is such a fragile thing. I know there are miracles that happen every second of every day!! Remember that miracles happen eternally and the plan is an awesome thing. Our minds are so limited and we can't fully understand Heavenly Father's plan for each of us. I love the Jeppesen family and I know that their positive attitudes will bring a miracle. We are praying for the Shaw family. Love you guys.

  5. Hey! It's Shanae Larsen. Me, Sadie and Josie are all fasting for you tomorrow Dylan. I hope you get better!
