This month has absolutely flown by...no, all of 2014 has. I am still in February in my mind. We were praying so hard for amazing healing for that precious kiddo, little 4 1/2 yr old Nickybear. But God had different plans and needs for him in Heaven. So hard to grip that but you have to - knowing how true our God is, as we watch Him break out miracles in our lives, left and right. But grasping such a young one needing to leave so soon, breaks my heart. It was his brain that started all the issues with cancer. And with me being an adult who makes appointments for brain surgeries to rid my seizures, I sure wish I could have taken it on for him. But, again, that isn't God's plan. And Nicky's family held so strong, so steadfast, faith filled thru it all- they did not waiver. It is like Abraham all over again. And they were blessed with twins last September ...before this all went down hill with Nicky's health. Looks like a God thing to me. They are miracle people... The uncle, Uncle Anthony, or Blue as the kids call him is one in depth, loving Uncle...and amazing brother who held tight thru Christ in all of this, yet let his tears flow for Nicky. Pointed out what Nicky went thru with a vase of all his hospital bands. My heart was moved forever.
So when I heard when the funeral was, and heard Tory, my daughter was going on Spring break with family friends, I had to ask my husband if he could alter his work schedule to go support this with me. My heart was overwhelmed with this by a precious friend of mine, asking me to share prayers for him- Miss Julie Caudill (who painted the painting above-whale is for Nicky). I had to read his whole battle, their whole battle since 2010, he was 8 mos old. It was heart wrenching. I prayed so hard all over. So my husband, the sweet man I married, altered his schedule, for me, us, and his funeral. We wept so hard. What a wake up call as to what to be thankful for,...even if I am the sick one, I have a precious, well daughter and husband- how much better could it get?
I will continue to send prayers and love to the sweet families...letting them know we are always here for them, in any weather of their life. Bless the George's and Cyr's.
The month was just swallowed. Other than being unwell in the beginning and the funeral...it just vanished. And in a couple days I am off to Phoenix- to Mayo Clinic Hospital for some intense tests. They tell me what I have... And if it is what they think, it cuts my life rather short. But I do believe in Jesus. And His miracles and change in paths when we know what we are praying for and He agrees. I know He has had major plans for me for a long time to still be hear today.... So with that, I hold tight and believe what I have all comes from something different that is dealable. I can handle a lot of health issues... But leaving my precious family soon just breaks my heart.
So I am praying.
And praising my family is still here.
And praying major healing upon the George's and Cyr's.
May God rain healing upon all!
Much love, always!
