Dear heavenly Father I lift up to you each one of these ladies and their prayer requests, I thank you that you allow us to come to you with prayers for intervention, healing and you shower us with your grace, mercy and love. I thank you for each one of these women for all the support they provide on this thread and for always being there for one another. I lift up to you our dear sweet friend Ellen Lord, I know she loves you so much and also know she is going through so much. I don't know all the details and all the cirumstances but you do Lord, and for that I thank you. I lift my hands to you Lord and praise you for all that you do for each one of us, I come beside my friend Ellen and lift her and her circumstances to you. I pray that she feel your presence and gets the quiet so that she can hear your voice and know what steps to take. I lift up Barb's husband Lord I pray that you can be with him and the family during this time and that he can feel your touch and know that it is you. I lift up Caterina Lord, I pray for restoration and healing to her body and thank you for all that she does to serve others in your name. I lift up Denise to you Lord, I pray that she has had some improvement in her situation and I hope she too feels your presence and hope she too can take the quiet time to hear your voice in the way she should go. I lift up to you Joan and her DH and their situations everything from finances, children and their jobs. I pray for Sara as she endures these physical challenges and other challenges that she too can take the time to hear your voice and know what way to go, Lord. I pray for Nikki and her decisions over jobs and moving and I pray for her DH and for their family. Lord thank you for each one of these women and lift each of them up to you today. Thank you for the changes that will come from our faith in you Father and thank you for sending your son. IJN, amen.

Once again Michele you have touched my heart with your prayers. I know that God hears.
I asking for prayers. My SIL called her best friend has been struggling with leukemia for a few years. The doctors can not do anything for her. She has been a rock for my SIL when her house burned down due to wild fires in CA.

Michelle,
Thanks for the wonderfulo prayer. You truly have a gift for doing that! We are fixing to be on our way out for a few days. Going to GA to visit the kids, as soon as Jimmy makes it home from work. He's having a very bad day today from what I gather. Should make for an interesting 4 HOUR ride in car with a grouchy hubby who has been awake for 24 hours already! LOL

My leg is still the same, my arms are struggling with the crutches but I am managing quite well considering. Anxiously awaiting my surgery date on the 29th. Can't wait to see if it takes the numbness and burning out of my hands arms and shoulders and the incredible increase in weakness I have developed strength wise in my hands and wrists. I caught my stove on fire the other day because I was making Jimmy something to eat and I didnt have enough strength to keep ahold of the skillet I was frying cubed steak in and I dropped it and the grease got on the burner and caught fire, but luckily, it was a very isolated incident and caused no damage, just strained my NERVES!!!!!! LOL oh yeah, and ruined one of my dish towels but that's no biggie.

That's how I hurt my leg, I was holding onto the bar while trying to step into the bathtub and my foot slipped and I didn't have enough strength to hold onto the rail and fell and slammed the side of my knee on the edge of the bathtub! So obviously, surgery was much more needed to repair the ongoing nerve damage issue in my hands and arms then we thought so I am looking forward to it, or atleast the anesthesia! LOL

Anywho I just wanted to check in with you guys before we left. I will have access to email, but none to the site except for at my MIL house and that's a 50/50 thing. We have alot planned that we have to do tomorrow. We have to be at my middle son's school at 10:40 for parents lunch day and then we have to be at mine and Jimmy's youngest school by noon to eat lunch with Brian at noon and Jordan at 12:30 and then Jimmy's oldest daughter has a band performance, (She plays drumline in high school band) at the home football game tomorrow nite and it starts at 7pm and then we have lunch scheduled with all 5 kids on saturday and plan to visit a few hours and Jimmy said something about maybe coming home Saturday evening instead of Sunday since he has to work Sunday nite and they changed his hours where buisness has picked up so we shall see. All this and I cannot drive so he will have alot on him as well.

OK, I'm really gonna shut up now! LOL Mom, hope everything starts getting better for you soon. Everyone else, I will continue to pray for the lost and those in need.

HUGS,
Sara

Good morning all of my sweet prayer pals! Denise, praying that you will persevere through your difficulties and confusion and see God clearly on the other side.
I have made it through one of the worst depressions I have ever experienced and it came out of nowhere. I thank God for holding onto me in that dark time. Seems kind of stupid to even talk about being depressed when I am so blessed and dont have half the problems Sara has for instance! But praise God and thanks to many prayers by you ladies I am back in the saddle. Speaking of Sara............hmmmm............seems to me I heard something about the dr saying NO COOKING!! Wonder why he would say that and why you were cooking? Be a good girl Sara and try to mind your doctors orders

I am out of here at noon to a company picnic until 3p, then we can leave. I am meeting my bestest old friend Marty from Virginia at the cabin for the weekend. I have not seen her in 9 years. Her DH just passed in January of cancer, so we are very much looking forward to long walks with Jack (her Jack Russell). I think DH will come out Saturday night for the night to meet her. He is working like crazy to clear out the old students at OSU and get the houses ready for the new ones.

Hope everyone has a wonderful and restful Labor Day weekend. Oh, BTW, Lynette quit her job in Charlotte and moved back to WV with the Lee's. She starts her new job up there on Tuesday. I expect she will check in when she gets PC access again. In the meantime, living with MIL and fam. ON the upside, she is now only 3 hours from ME

Hi Girls!

We are back from our trip to see the kids! And Oh My let me just tell you it always seems like when we leave the holler, Tragedy always strikes. We got word Friday nite that my best friends dad, Also a close friend of ours was working on his horse barn cutting some rafters with a chainsaw and I guess it hit a knott in the wood and kicked back on him and laid his face and neck open quite good!!! They rushed him to locall ER where they flew him my hellicopter to trauma center down at UT where I go for all my neuro stuff and it broke a bone in his face, disfigured him horribly, they said his eye glasses saved his actual eye but they had to do emergency surgery to fix veins and stuff and nerves that were severed in the accident. They were unsure of his fate for a while but thankfully it appears that he will ultimately be OK, other then a very very long recovery, 600+ stitches and a horrible scar that they can do some cosmetic resotoration at a later date however it would most likely be in vein due to the chop job the teeth of the chainsaw did as you can imagine Im sure.

Other then that, we had a great visit with the kids and all the things we had planned to do with them down there. My leg bothered me some and I took a severe headache yesterday and had to medicate due to that but after several hours it eased up for the remainder of the trip enough for me not to be completely miserable.

Hope all is well with everyone else.

Higs,
Sara

OK Girls, The verdict is in and the verdict is.............. I have to go see an ortho surgeon in Knoxville. 1-because they need to do an MRI to find out exactly how much damage is done etc. and with my shunt in, I have to be right next to my neuro so he can reprogram the shunt right afterwards. So 2 dr visits here for someone with no insurance...and 2- because she is positive that I either severed the ligament or tendon that wraps around the inside of my knee or tore it badly and she also believe the bursa sack (Fluid sack that protects the knee joint) is ruptured. I guess she suspected before but now that someof the bruising and swelling has gone down some, she was able to better feel the muscles and stuff. so now I just have to wait for them to call me with the appt.

Hugs,
Sara

While I know most prayer requests here are for desperate and saddening situations, I hope you don't mind me posting a prayer request for our ministry here.

Our ministry continues to struggle with funding issues and challenges with the women we serve. I would just ask that you life up our ministry to the One who can resolve all these issues and life up each woman we disciple, mentor and work with.

Additionally I have branched out with my own blog (both websites for the ministry and my blog are in my siggy line if you aren't familiar with me) and I'm hoping to work toward publication. It has been put on our hearts that this might well be a funding avenue for the work we do and so want to direct folks to this as well, lift these endeavors to our Lord for His blessing and provision if we are truly walking in His will.

In that light, my husband and I are also starting a new business venture (again to find ways to bring funding into the ministry and support us while I continue to go without a salary in my work). We are opening Spirit House Press and will be working with unpublished Christian authors to get their words and stories into print and on the bookshelves. Please again lift this endeavor up to the Lord for His blessing that our work be strengthened and move forward for His Glory!

Thanks everyone!

Leslie, nothing is too small or too anything for prayer. Please know any and all requests are welcomed.

May the Lord shower you and your family with His love, grace, guidance and wisdom.

Thought to share the latest on Isaac's caringbridge site - thank you sooo much for your prayers.

Weeellll, guess what??? Isaac started his first day of school today!!! Yippee!! He was SOOOO excited! He got to get up this morning like a big boy, eat breakfast at school, then go to class himself!! I stayed with him for the first hour or so because he was having a hard time adjusting to the structure of the class (he just wanted to play!) but then he did great and I was able to come home and wait for him to get done! It is so amazing and such a miracle that my baby boy has gotten the opportunity to go to school!

I tell you, we are definitely living in world of denial right now. Isaac is doing so well that it is impossible to believe that we are actually going to lose him. I think that he will just be magically cured, this awful cancer will never touch him again, and we will forever be able to say that our little Isaac is our MIRACLE BABY! Who knows if that is what will really happen but I simply cannot imagine it being any other way, so I guess that's good enough for me.

We are getting all ready to go to the MIRACLE PARTY!! Thank you sooo much Stacy Moriarty for organizing the party and for making sure that we and so many other families have lodging for such a great event!! Jen is so excited to have gotten her dress for the party. She wants to be a "princess" but she is a big girl for her age so we couldn't just get her a Cinderella costume! She wanted to wear a wedding dress but we had a very hard time finding one in her size and we just don't have time to get it altered so we went shopping today and got her a beautiful blue prom-like dress. She looks so pretty with her blue dress and sliver shoes. Like a little princess! And David wants to be an "army man". So my friend Wynter let him borrow a set of her husband's army fatigues (he is currently deployed to Iraq). David is so excited to be able to wear authentic army gear! And Brennan wants to be a pirate and Isaac is going to be.... you'll never guess!!.....


SPIDERMAN!

Lol. Who would've guessed? And me? I am borrowing a beautiful white Marilyn Monroe style dress with white and diamond heels and a bright blue wig! We are all so excited about this party and I can't remember the last time that the kids have been so happy about the future. It is really amazing. And then on Sunday we are going to hit Elitch Gardens (Six Flags) and let the kids spend the day playing and riding rides before we head home. It will really be a great weekend!

Other than that, things are going good. Isaac wants to return to the hospital to say "hi" to his friends there so we are going to stop in over the weekend. Isaac's bloodwork continues to look pretty good. Hs white blood cell count is great, everything looks good and normal except his platelets are dropping again. Not really sure why. Leukemia tends to kill off the platelets but there are still no blasts showing up in his blood, so we don't know for sure what is going on.

Oh, and yesterday was Brennan's 8th birthday. I was very very sick, so I made the cake and got everything ready for the party but didn't actually attend (didn't want to pass on my bug to everyone!) But everyone had a great time and ate lots of cake!!

I will try to update again soon but feel free to catch up with me on Facebook!!

Love,

christa

So good to hear Good News about Isaac. Praying for all sick children everywhere and for each of your personal needs. God is good and works in His own time not ours.
Blessings

Barb, praying for you and DH and your family.

Cat, those posts really get to me - love that Issac got to enjoy school and the party sounds like fun for them. So glad. Makes my heart happy.

Sara, thinking of you and praying for you.

Work was busy but better than I thought. I prayed before going in today it was just hard to see a friend leave, but she called me at the end of the day. Thanks for asking!

Michele- How awful to watch a friend have to leave! I will say a prayer for her. This is not a good time to be looking for a job.

Good Morning Girls!!!

Just wanted to pop in and say hello since I was up. I had another insomniac night last night.....UGGHHH! Actually it wasn't cuz I was tired but becuz I just couldn't get comfortable. It is 55 degrees here this morning and my Air is still coming on,..........I seriously think my husband is an eskimo or a polar bear because it feels like Antartica or Alaska in here 24-7!!!!!!!!! I'm totally not kidding, I am in long johns, jeans, and heavy sweatshirt and where it's still so cold in the house I had to move my weeding rings to my middle fingers because when my hands are cold, they shrink and it kept falling off of my ring finger...... Don't wanna be losing that now do I??? Anywho, just hoping everything is going ok with everybody. I never know when everyone is chatting so it's hard for me to catch some of ya...
Michelle---Tried calling you a few times but can never get you. We have been having problems with our phones for the last month or so. It keeps telling us call failed, and dropping our calls. I was talking to Caterina about a week ago and it just dropped our call in the middle of talking and then it wouldn't let me call her back.. LOL - CAT--if your there, I swear I didn't hang up on you deary!

Prayers for all in need......
Bye for now tho...................

Hugs,
Sara
