Last week this time I was riding 4wheelers with the men in my life....this week they are riding without me. I opted to stay home tonight to get a few things done that I hadn't managed to do all week. Hopefully they will be careful...I'm sure they probably need more adult supervision :)
This week I have been reading blogs about children that are suffering from all sorts of illnesses some of which are very critical situations. My heart absolutely breaks for these families. I recall the roller coaster ride we were on when Morgan Kate with in the NICU. You would just hold your breath and pray that you could handle the situations as they came at you. Two families come to mind tonight and I hope you will pray for them. Jack Huffman http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/jackhuffman is fighting a fierce battle with cancer. He was scheduled for surgery today but they were not able to successfully perform the surgery. Then there is a little boy, Stellan, http://www.mycharmingkids.net/, who I have read about since he was born. While he was in the womb, the doctor's told his mom he would never live because of a heart condition. Miraculously he was born without any heart problems. However, they are surfacing now and he is battling his heart racing away at a scary rate. One thing that strikes me about these two families is their display of amazing grace and faith. As I have thought about these families this week, I have thanked God numerous times for the progress that Morgan Kate has made and for the miracle that she is. She was 7 months old on Tuesday and I'm so grateful that I am her grandmother and that she is doing well!
