More to praise God for!

Today we went back to the retina doctor. He tested Andrea through a filered lens and she tested at 20/60 without corrective lenses. For the first time since we met him in January, he said "Andrea, I believe you will be able to read again". What joy! Then she admitted she was using a magnifying glass Thursday night to test herself, and she could read a magazine briefly before her eye was becoming strained. Then he said he wanted to take the oil out of her left eye November 7, ahead of schedule. Andrea is healing quickly, praise God again.
You all have been so good about praying for Andrea. She is with us today and reading because God listened to your prayers. Please put Nov. 7 on your calendars, too for her left eye. We really feel the power of your requests granted by God.
J. is still there, every step of the way and going to work through all this. Andrea continues to be blessed by the Martin family.
Love to all,

Dear Andrea,
20/60 is wonderful. I am so happy to hear the news. Keep it up, and I will be so glad when you have all of your eye surgeries behind you. My prayers are with you daily.

I just received an answer to an email I sent to Andrea last December. Andrea worked for my firm as an intern. I was dumbfounded when I read her update. We always wanted Andrea to stay in Fort Worth and work for our firm but we couldn't persuade her. I would periodically keep in touch and when I didn't hear from her I just assumed that people come and go through our lives and the she was of to even bigger and better things. I had no idea.
I think the most amazing thing as I read through every word in the blog - is your family's faithfulness. What a witness - an incredible testimony. Andrea is blessed in so many ways - and after reading the blog - it is so clear that she is twice blessed to have a family, friends and fiance. I can't wait to share this story with my wife and two sons tonight. God is always good.

Joshua 1:9 - For have I not commanded you, be strong and courageous and do not be afraid for the Lord, your God, is with you.
