Be Praying for Dax and the Locke Family
"For you are my hope; O Lord God you are my confidence"
The Dunford's and Farrar's joined in with some of the Chili's employee gang to come out to my house and put up our LIGHTS FOR DAX yesterday. We had an awesome time and enjoyed making a video complete with our "choral" rendition of WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS. Each group did a video message to include on it for Dax, Julie and Austin. The video is still in the editing process, but hopefully will be ready today and I will figure out a way to post it or post a link to it.
Be praying for Dax and the family. It seems he is nearing the end of his battle with the beast. Please pray for strength for Julie and Austin as they take care of him and spend each moment cherishing him. Pray for Dax to be comfortable. Julie and Austin are a wonderful and amazing young couple. I am so thankful they are being surrounded with so much love and support from their friends and family and even those who have never even met them. They are truly being blessed. If you and your family want to participate in bringing a smile to this wonderful family, take a little time and decorate a room or put up a tree or some lights outside and take a picture and send it to the website on Dax's CB page. This is just an amazing tribute to the Locke's. This is such a simple thing, but think of the joy it brings to them and the reward that YOU get in your heart for doing it. We were all truly blessed last night by our time together making his happen for the Locke family.
I REALLY NEED FOR EACH PERSON REGISTERED ON TEAM BELIEVE TO SEND ME AN EMAIL AND LET ME KNOW IF YOU WILL BE OR WILL NOT BE ATTENDING THE DINNER ON FRIDAY NIGHT. I HAVE GOT TO TURN IN A HEAD COUNT TO MACARONI GRILL THIS WEEK. PLEASE GET THIS EMAIL TO ME BY WEDNESDAY. I KNOW MANY OF YOU HAVE TOLD ME EITHER ON THE PHONE OR IN A MSG ALONG THE WAY, BUT MY BRAIN IS ONLY ABOUT THE SIZE OF A PEA..... SO PLEASE JUST CONFIRM IN AN EMAIL SO I WILL HAVE IT ALL IN ONE SPOT. I NEED TO GIVE THEM AN ACCURATE COUNT. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
Please keep praying for all of our families listed on our page. So many are going through so much. The holidays coming up are very difficult times for everyone. Pray a special prayer for their strength during the holiday season. Some will be facing the holidays for the first time with an empty seat at the table. Some will be separated from their families because of being here for treatment. Many different situations going on, just please pray for them and for God to comfort them.
Rylee has been in the hospital again over the weekend. She has really been through so much in the past few weeks. Please pray for her and her family. Pray that the doctors will be able to get to the bottom of her problems and get her back on the road to being a healthy happy little girl. You can get more details from her CB page.
Please be praying for two little guys who have recently relapsed. Jack and James. They are buddies from their first time spent at St Jude and now within a week of each other they have both relapsed. I will try to meet up with them this week and ask for permission to post their links on our page so you guys can follow along and be in prayer for them. Some of you already know their sites, but I will not post without permission... so give me a day or so. Just be praying for Jack and James.
Have a blessed week. If you can take a few minutes and post a comment on here with one thing that you are thankful for this Thanksgiving season, I think that will be a blessing to all of us to be able to read them. Just try it... take a second and let us share with each other something that we are thankful for in our lives.
BELIEVE PRAYER WORKS!!!
