What A Day........

First of all......Happy Birthday to my bff Michelle and to my beloved cousin Katy!!! Both of you guys totally rock!!

Second let me first say that my son takes after me in the clumsy department.

Today he not only grabbed my hair straightener and burned his fingers, he also fell head first off of the bed.

This child has been totally cursed with the clumsy gene from me.

I really think we both should be living in a bubble!!

Hope everyone has a marvelous week!!

I find myself today praying for so many things and for so many people that I thought that I would share them with you and you could pray too if you like!

1. Nick- He goes Thursday for another MRI of his brain. It feels like it has been an eternity waiting for this appointment. I know that the Lord will be there with us as we journey to Birmingham and when Nick undergoes the MRI. We are just so thankful for the blessings that we have received since his healing in August. That's all there is to was a MIRACLE!

2. Deedra- This is one precious lady to me. She had to have an emergency c-section last night because her blood pressure was too high. Mr. Walker James is his name. I know that Deedra is doing well. Walker, I believe, is in ICU for oxygen but is ok. (info from facebook)

3. Randall- His story touches my family so much. He got sick about the same time Nick did and even had some of the same symptoms. Go here to read more.

4. Stellan- He has been a very huge part of my prayer life since I found his Mommy's blog. (My Charming Kids) I wear an orange bracelet to remember him in prayer. Stellan was not supposed to make it through delivery but with many prayers and a miracle making Lord he has seen fit for Stellan to make it to his first birthday plus a few days. He has SVT just like Nick did and has had an ablation just like Nick but it did not work the first time. He recently, as of last week, went back into SVT. His doctors wanted him back in Boston for another ablation on Tuesday but he got worse yesterday. They wanted to do the ablation ASAP but Stellan got much worse this morning. His heart even stopped. They were able to get him back and are hoping to get him stable enough to do the ablation as soon as possible. Please pray on his behalf that God will work another Miracle and show the world his glory.

BIG NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!

My sister Nancy is having a GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YIPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I get to buy something pink and girlie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I absolutely hate the hiccups. I hate them even more when my son has them and there's nothing I can do but offer him something to drink and pray that he drinks it.

You know the old wives tale that says when you get the hiccups that means that you are growing? Well if that is the case then my son should be about 12 feet tall by the time he is 5 because he has had the hiccups 3 times today already!!

Just thought you should know! :-)

Psalm 116:1-2.............

So this verse pretty much smacked me in the face today.............

"I love the Lord, for he heard my voice, he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live."

...........Nick and I are forever grateful for a loving and healing Savior!!

Thursday, August 20, 2009


I don't even know where to begin. I have never felt the love of my Savior like I have today. Nick does not have MS for now. His symptoms seem to be an isolated incident and the doctor wants to follow up with him in three months for another MRI to make sure all is still clear.

I just have to thank all of our families, church family, friends, and people I don't even know who prayed and fasted for Nick today. We felt your prayers today and I don't even know where to begin to thank you for everything!

I had to pray Nick out of our home today! I had to pray him out of our car to get in the doctors office. He just knew that he would be devastated today. The Lord and the prayers of all of you helped him face what he would face today.

God is still in the miracle making business and I believe with all my heart that this was a miracle. I told Nick in the waiting room that I believed that my God could change the writing on his chart. He did not have a disease until he said you had a disease. In the words of my Mother-in-Law, "You claim the victory now!" I just have to say that I do claim the victory! I believe that my God chose today as Nick's healing day! My God is awesome.

When Dr. R. told us that it was not MS I could have jumped into his lap and gave him such a big hug. Don't know what he would have thought but I did keep my composure. {grin,snort,laugh!}

You may not want to know this but as soon as we started to leave the doctors office I needed to go potty. Nick went on to the car. As soon as the door closed I had my shouting fit and mass text message fit! I'm pretty sure that I have never done anything like that before. When I got to the car Nick was crying and of course I asked him what was wrong and he said I am so relieved. ('s pretty hard for me not to just sob uncontrollably when my hubby is crying} I told him, "I told you that our God would take care of you!"

"For nothing is impossible with God!" {Luke 1:37}

That's my story and I'm stickn' to it! Much love and gratitude to you all! We are truly blessed more than we deserve.!


Words To Live By..........

God is who he says he is.....
God can do what he says he can do.....
I am who God says I am....
I can do all things through Christ....
His word is alive and active in me!!!!!!!
(Thank you Judith if I haven't thanked you for your hard work!)

This was our mission statement from our Montgomery Mission Trip this year. What wonderful words they are. These words are hopeful and true!

I ask you to please remember Nick today. His appointment is at 11 am. Please pray for the courage to face what lies in store for us. I still believe that Jesus is in the miracle business but that He may want bigger and better things from this illness.

A special thanks to those of you who are praying for my family and to those of you who are giving up something you love for the sake of my family. Much love to you all! We are honored to have such a wonderful church family! We love you all!


Nick, Melissa and Andrew
