Peace. Love. & Prayer
Chris and I just want to thank all of you who have been praying for us and sending us words of encouragement. There is nothing greater than knowing you are being prayed for. There is also no greater honor than to be able to lift a brother or a sister up in prayer! As you can imagine, Chris and I have been deep in prayer over the past few days. It got me thinking, why aren't we like this all the time?? Yes, we pray everyday for others but not like we have been praying this past week. It has really opened our eyes to how lazy we become when things seem to be going good. To be honest I feel selfish. I should be lifting others up before the Lord a lot more than I have been! I'm thankful for this reminder and it is my prayer that I will be faithful to pray for others everyday just as we are being prayed for everyday! A big prayer of ours (obviously) has been for Kate. I believe our prayers have already been answered. The peace that we have is from the Lord. There is no other way that this peace is possible. A good friend reminded me that when I feel pain from the cyst I have (which has been multiple times a day) to stop and pray for Kate's cyst. My friend is doing the same thing as she has the same cyst I have. How cool is that? Such a great reminder to just stop and pray, no matter where we are or what we are doing. Chris and I wait with great anticipation for our appointment with the doctor on Friday morning. We can't wait to see Kate again and see how she has grown! I am growing so I can only imagine how she has! :) Please be praying for us for Friday that all of our nerves and anxiousness will be gone. Please also pray for wisdom for our doctor and most of all for the cyst on her brain to be gone!!! We believe!!
