Bumps In The Road.... God Will Carry You Through!

Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits - who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.
Psalm 103:2-3

Thank you to all of the wonderful prayer warriors who joined us tonight for a prayer night for Elizabeth. I know God heard our pleas and I have faith that He will answer them in His own time. For those of you who were not able to join in, I will share a few of the things that we prayed together for. First let me say we were honored to have Trevor V's mom, Pam, and also Elizabeth's mom, Michelle join us tonight. It was wonderful to pray with them and for them. We also included Alex Denton in our prayers. They got the news today that his cancer is back. Jennifer has posted the game plan for Alex, please read his page and PLEASE leave them a message on their site to let them know you are praying for them. We also had special prayers for Dr. Sara and Dr. Scott. Both of these doctors go above and beyond to make their families feel peace in times of "road blocks". These doctors are very special to the families at St Jude and St Jude is so very blessed to have them on staff. Please include these doctors and also each doctor, nurse and complete medical staff at St Jude. They are so special, and I have not ever seen any like them. They need our prayers too.

Mallerie got to move back to transplant!!! YEA FOR MAL!!!! I had a few minutes to pop in and check on her today. She had some visitors from home and she looked quite pleased. She looked great!!! She even had on some makeup today... I'm wondering if she has a fellow in sight!!! Just teasing Mal! Thank You Lord, for hearing the prayers of so many for Mallerie's healing.

Michelle wrote an excellent update this afternoon explaining as best as they can tell, what is going on with Elizabeth. Please read it. As of tonight during our prayer time, things were the same. Elizabeth is stable but critical. She needs our prayers. Hopefully they will know more exactly what they are dealing with in the next few days as these cultures have time to grow.
PRAY for Elizabeth, Michelle, DJ, Andrew and Charlie. Also, please keep their family in prayer as they are traveling to Memphis to be with the Elizabeth. That little girl is loved by soooooo many!!!

Our little Trevor was here today for his MRI, I got to see them for a few minutes but did not get to see them after the MRI and before they had to get to the airport to return home. I will call Melinda in the morning and see what the MRI showed. Trevor looked great and Melinda said the pain had been very little! Thank You Lord for that!

Okay, it's been a long day. God's grace and power has been seen today in so many ways. Please continue to pray for each of the families here. I do want to share this with you.... I had the opportunity to sit with Michelle today as she pulled up Elizabeth's caringbridge site to update it. She went straight to the guestbook and began to read each entry. Until you sit and watch the face of a parent reading comments and prayers left in their guestbook, you will NEVER know how much each one means to the parents. Smiles, maybe the first smiles of the day; tears, good tears happy tears knowing that a perfect stranger from across the world is praying for their just can not know how much encouragement and hope your messages bring to the families. Please take a few minutes each day and let them know you are praying for them.

Have a good nights rest! I am praying for a good nights healing peace on these children.
