Emergency Prayer!!

A dear blogging friend has contacted me asking that I put a prayer request here because they know my readers will pray. Please don't let me down, friends! They need serious prayers for their precious little boy!!

Jonathan had surgery several weeks ago and after healing in the hospital for a bit was released. Only home a couple of days he began running a high fever and ended up in the Emergency Room where he was again admitted as a patient. He has been in the hospital almost a week and they still do not know what is causing his discomfort and high fevers. They have taken blood many times, done cultures to find the cause, and have even done abdominal ultrasounds, but at this point, the cause is still elusive. Little Jon is not eating nor drinking and the IV's keep coming out. He is such a trooper and is very brave but being such a little guy it's hard for him to understand what is going on and that the pain (from the blood draws, IV's, etc) is purposeful.  I can't imagine how hard this has been on the whole family. Medical issues are hard enough but to not know the cause and to see your boy hurting would be unbearable. Please, please, lift this little one up in prayer. Please pray for wisdom and discernment for the doctors, comfort for sweet little Jonathan, and for strength and peace for his family as they keep advocating for him.
Thank you so very much! I can't wait to report that he is home with his family, on the mend, eating, drinking and playing happily with his toys.

Just did so, Ma'am! Precious lil' boy. Even if it clears up without the doctors discovering any new virus, they should still try to look into what was going on with him. IN case it pops up again with someone else.

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

Now she's....

11! Can hardly believe our precious, tiny, happy girl is 11 years old!  She's the first one home and I have no doubt that her contagious joy  helped propel us on to adopt 4 more times. :) 



She is a lover of all things but especially birthdays! If she hears it's someones' birthday she gets so excited and plans to be at their party even if she wasn't invited. LOL! She's been diligently reminding us every.single.day sometimes every.minute.of.every.day that her birthday was coming up. There were only two things she wanted.....a Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans dvd and a harp. Yes, you read that right....a harp! Oh my, this girl is a big dreamer but that's better than not dreaming at all! :) So Sean and I set our brains to thinking how we could pull this off for our girl and my man came through!! Check out this beautiful harp he threw together. 

And it's the perfect size for her and even plays music! Sweet! Kyalynn was thrilled and is so cute playing her harp. She als…
