Udell was with Shannon last night and all of today so I took the opportunity to go to the temple. I had been thinking and praying about her vocal chords and her endurance. But by the time I left the temple, my focus had changed to be more on 3 words; patience, trust and order. The temple teaches us so much about order and how important it is in God's plan. Even the universe has its specific order! I realized that when we live our lives in order, there is more joy and happiness and less heartache. All around us, the things that are working right are done in a very specific order. That made me think about how the brain is organized and that there must be a specific order for Shannon's brain to reorganize itself. So in the temple, I realized that I need to have more patience and trust in the Lord. I know He knows what He is doing. Why should I want to specify what the next step for Shannon should be? I vowed that I would try again to show the Lord that I do trust Him by striving to have more patience in the process of this miraculous healing that is taking place.

  1. Phoebe, I think you've been incredibly patient--such a great example! I love hearing about all of the little miracles happening for Shannon and for your family. Tell Shannon I think she's AMAZING and she's doing great! Hang in there,Phoebe, you are wonderful. Cindy Pedersen
