Prayer Requests Nov 11th


Today I had to opportunity to go to Morgan's school & help out in library.  This is something I've done for my kids in elementary school for a few years now. I think since Gabby was in 3rd grade.  I love helping out the librarian as well as helping the kids select & check out their books.  I love to read & I enjoy having the opportunity to see them get excited over books.  It also gives me the ability to connect with different teachers and staff so they know that they can come to me if my kids need help, are having trouble with something or to say they saw my kids doing something nice or behaving nicely or even not so nicely.  It helps me feel more involved in their education. Sadly I only have Morgan left at the elementary school so I have to find other ways to be involved with the older two.  Over the weekend, Morgan attended a birthday party & forgot some of her things & it just so happened that another teacher at her school was able to bring them to school with her for us to get things back today.  See, that's what I'm talking about. A good reason to be that parent that is around a lot. haha.  As I signed out of the office log and was about to leave with Sadie we saw a UPS package car pull up to the school.  Sure enough, it was Adam training a seasonal driver so we waited for a few minutes so we could say hi. Sadie was thrilled to see Daddy & get a squeezy hug from him.  After our sweet surprise, we headed home and I spent some time trying to get some medical records together.

I still haven't heard anything from Ann Arbor so I'm asking for prayer for a few things...
1. That Ann Arbor will get all the items needed so that we can get an appointment.
2. Wisdom to know whether to take the kids out of school to go with us downstate.
3. Prayer that the genetics testing comes back negative for everything. (this is actually VERY important!!)
4. That the cancer cells will stop copying and actually die
5. The pain in my hip and back will decrease
6. That God will guide the physicians with my care.
7. For a supernatural healing of my earthly body.

You may have noticed that I added a map to the blog. When talking with my family, my kids were quite interested to know locations where people are praying from.  I didn't think it was necessary for everyone to enter their actual location with name for safety reasons.I think the map that I found goes by IP address location.  Oddly enough, I think ours actually shows up as Grand Rapids instead of the U.P. Lol.  If anyone knows of a better map to show the locations of all God's Prayer Warriors, I'd be happy to look at it.  I am thrilled that so many of God's people are coming together to pray.  It makes me cry tears of joy to know that good is already coming from a situation like this.

May God richly bless each & every one of you as we join together in prayer.  I sincerely thank each of you as you think about us & pray for us throughout the day.  Don't forget to give thanks to God for what he has done already, no matter what the circumstance is.  Blessed be HIS name!  Oh and Happy Birthday to my BIL. Hope that your day was wonderful! We love you! :)

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

  4. Praying for you..I know from personal experience how frustrating the waiting can be. Prayer and rejoicing and praising our Lord is what helped me through and I see it is what you cling to also. May God find favor in you and heal you. I know your sister here in Felch. Blessings to you and your family
