Home Again!

The Ponderosa arrived home safely on Sunday night around 11 p.m. We had an amazing time with "Hoss", and he is making such great strides....we hope to have him home sooner than later.
The scope of emotions that one experiences during a trip like this one is monumentous. We were elated to spend time with him, yet dreading the ride home.
For those of you praying for "Hoss" and the rest of the "Cartwrights", here are a few specifics:

1. "Hoss" has a whole lot of boys at Agape with him, many of which are bad examples. He asked specifically for courage to do what is right, going against the current of bad behavior.

2. We need wisdom on when the right time to open the doors and bring him back.

3. Healing for all the hurting hearts here and in Missouri. "Inger" was next to "Hoss" the entire 4 days we were with him. She cried immediately when we started to leave. She has woken most nights since we left the ranch dealing with her emotions at night. There are many tears flowing from all of us.

Come back to see some pictures in the coming days.

I came to your blog several months ago and left a comment regarding Hoss. Today, I was on the True Woman blog and I saw a comment that I thought was from you (your website address sounded familiar). I typed in your link and there you were with your family. I'm glad you were able to spend some time with your son and I hope you will all be reunited very soon.

I don't even know what to say. There is such a lot going on, and so many tenuous situations for you. Your eldest looks strong and brave, which he must be becoming, or he wouldn't have asked for your prayers to be strong. We keep you all in your prayers. I know this must have been a trip full of both joy and sorrow and so many other emotions. Stay strong in Him!
