Family Update

This week ahs been a mixed bag. Our lil 3yo DD's bowel started bleeding again yesterday and the cerebral symptoms are increasing - the dr thinks that because she has had a slight cold that has increased the lymph nodes in her tummy just marginally which is enough to pinch of her bowel again and increase the pressure in her head. We are praying and she is back on fluids for now.

I am due in the eye hosptal again friday to see how much damage has been done to my vision ( I had an incomplete stroke on mothers day and that has effected my left arm and left eye/ face) My vision is much less but is improving everyday so I am thankful.

DH has broken his foot and is off work on crutches.

It is all happening. I am so dependant on my time in the Word and am gaurding that time as a priority at the moment because I feel out of stregnth. Seems to be wave after wave. I got a timely email prayer today that has been such a blessing:

GOD'S PERFECT POWER 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

Dear Father,

Your grace is sufficient for me. Your power is made perfect in weakness.
When I am weak, Christ's power will shine through and lift me up. Please let this happen!
For Christ's sake help me to be content with whatever you let come
my way - weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and
calamities - for when I am weak, then I am strong!
Let me be strong with your strength even when consumed by my own weaknesses.
In the name of Him who is my strength, Jesus Christ.



  1. that is a lot to deal with - wow - hoping you find the strength you need to make it a good day :)

    thanks for stopping by my blog.:)


  2. Precious Sister in Christ,

    You are in my prayers today. I pray that Jesus meets you where you are today and that His love encourages you in a way that is especially precious. I pray He gives you a special moment that you can treasure away in your heart and ponder. I pray that His Peace that transcends all understanding will be yours. I pray the Lord not only heals your family, but that He uses this time to draw you closer to Him and that He be glorified through it all.

    Love in Christ,

  3. Thank you so much sweet sisters for your prayers & encouragement,
    A big cyber hug coming your way,
