Amazed (by Daddy)

I am truly amazed by everyones prayer. I wanted to say thank you. I'm amazed over and over again by everyones comments and encouragement. One verse that was shared with us which has become a favorite of mine is Isaiah 40:28-31. I read this scripture to Carter this evening and I had to fight back tears because it really spoke to me. I feel like these scriptures were written just for Carter.

Another thing that amazes me is how in the midst of their trying time, the Bayless family is praying for our little guy, and that means a lot to us. Thank you Daniel and Jenni for praying for us, and we will not stop praying for Granton. Daniel (Granton's dad) wrote a very encouraging comment to us that said he had learned not to worry, just pray. Please continue to pray for the 2 Bolivar boys.

"For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11. This is our prayer that God will continue to make His plan evident to us, even when we don't understand.

Mike as I read your post I was thinking of a quote from my devotional just last night (God's timing truly amazes me over and over). It was about a family going thru a tough time and they learned that "When you pray, you don't worry. When you worry, you don't pray." It really struck home with me because I worry and I realized that I truly don't always trust as I should.

Thinking of you all and praying for good test results, rest, super fast healing, and as Gina put it "normalcy" because man this has been a crazy week and a day!!

Hugs to you all!!

Good morning dear ones...
We are praying for you all, and knowing that God is in control makes it so much easier. Just hang in there and know that we love and and are rejoicing in the good things that are happening and praying for peace and rest and good test results. "God is good all the time and all the time God is good". We love you and hope to see you in the near future! Roy & Kathy

I wondered when you were going to make an appearance, Mike! :) I looked up the verse you shared...I think it's very appropriate. Still praying!
