I just wanted to give a quick update, and a VERY BIG THANK YOU for all your prayers!
I just received word, my son is out of surgery and in ICU. He is doing well!!!
He was born with Aortic Stenosis, a defective heart valve. They have waited for years for technology to improve in replacing these valves. He now has a mechanical valve which should last a lifetime, and without further surgeries.
I am a very thankful mother this morning! God blessed me with three beautiful sons. My oldest went Home and walks with Jesus. My youngest went Home for a visit, but was returned to us. Now my second son has a new heart. And I pray it will always be filled with a love for Jesus!
With all my heart, I thank you all so much for your prayers! I know God hears, and answers. He has surrounded with caring and kind hearts that have lifted me up and encouraged me with hope! He gives me courage to face the storms, and strength to go through them. Thank You Jesus! – Amber
Today marks the 2 year anniversary of my son Christian’s accident. There are so many thoughts swirling around in my head, it’s hard to focus on any one thing. I guess the main feeling I’d like to share is how thankful I am to God for everything He has done to bless us.
I know that God does things in His own way, and there are many times that we don’t understand why or how, or what will happen. But this much I have learned: God puts specific people in our lives at specific moments, to accomplish His Will.
As I’ve been learning over the past 2 years, Christian’s resuscitation & recovery were nothing ordinary according medical science. While some may choose to believe that it was just luck, I’ve known it was a miracle all along.
I am so thankful that God put the paramedics where they were at the specific time they were needed. I am thankful that He guided their hearts & hands to make the choices they did with their techniques & procedures used. I am thankful for all of the LifeMed crew that flew Christian to the hospital. I am thankful for all of the doctors & nurses for all of their hard work & dedication in helping my son, and so many others.
Most of all, I am thankful for a God that hears & answers prayers. My God still does miracles!
Christian has made a complete recovery from what was an impossible situation. But then, all things are possible with God.
A beautiful little soul has gone on to God’s Kingdom. She is safe now in the arms of Jesus, no more pain, no more tears. She is at peace.
But her family is in pain. The grip of grief, pain, anguish, despair, unanswered questions, all this and more, can be so overwhelming in our time of loss. Sometimes there is no sense to be made, or reasons why to be answered. I know, because I’ve lived through it.
There were only 2 things that kept me going, 2 reasons that I helped me endure…knowing the love of my Savior, Jesus Christ, and knowing that my child was in His arms where he would be happy forevermore.
Even though it’s been over 11 years now since my son Jason died, there are still moments when all those feelings of grief and sadness return. And it’s in those moments when I realize just how much I need Jesus. Without His comforting and peace, I could not live.
I pray that Faith’s family will have the strength to hold onto the love & peace & comforting that only He can give, to know that their precious little girl is with Him now. I pray that they can know in their heart they will see her again one day, and find security in the family of Jesus. In the Holy name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
Please pray for a miracle! A little 1 year old girl named Faith suffered a head trauma at daycare and appeared brain dead yesterday. She is undergoing an MRI right now to determine if there is any brain activity.
This is Baby Faith & her Mom & Dad.
I know the heartache and the fear and anguish these parents are going through right now. I also know that God is mighty and capable, with Him ALL things are possible!
Please pray for this family, for healing, comforting, peace, strength, and faith and trust in the Lord! Let the Spirit of His great love flow out through our prayers. Amen! And thank you all!
