Prayers, prayers, and more prayers...

I'm trying to get back to a regular blog schedule, but some weeks are very uneventful.  This happened to NOT be one of them.  Our church focused on healing at it's Sunday service.  It was amazing!

Thanks to a relentless Britni Adams, I finally attended Wednesday morning bible study.  I loved it and plan on getting my butt out of bed and going weekly now!

Some of you know, my dear friend Reggie had a follow up at Emory yesterday.  They actually called him a few weeks after his MRI and the surgeon wanted to see him.  We thought this may not be good.  It wasn't.

Reggie has another brain tumor, on the other side of the brain.  The surgeon at Emory explained that surgery was Reggie's only option now for that tumor.  The original tumor is still there as well.  Reggie is my family, I love him very much.  He needs our prayers so much right now.  If you try to contact him, he's got so much going on he may not respond right now.  I'm sure just sending prayers and support his was will help more than you know.  He doesn't want to talk about things, not even with me so please don't feel like he's shutting anyone out.  I'm the same way when I get bad news, except I've started blogging to express my feelings.  I'll post more once I found out, in the meantime...prayers!

Also, our friend Brad Busch is having surgery today for a broken ankle.  He will be out of work for a long time and has a rough road to recovery ahead.  Please pray for everything to go smoothly for him today.  Brad has been there too since day 1.  I love him and his wife Mandy very much too.  They are like family to us!

Please continue to remember the following additional people in your prayers:   Marjorie Polk, Tim Gravitt, Shelley Miller, Sheila Hodges, Peggy Fogerty, Gretchen Mitchell Anderson, Dylan Rosier and James Robert Smith.  They still all have their own battles.

Please pray for strength and peace for Marjorie and her family right now.  She is having a fundraiser October 5th.  Please see Marjorie's Fundraiser to find out more information.

Additionally, Reggie still has an active fundraiser to help pay his medical bills.  It's at Reggie's Fundraiser.  Reggie needs our help now even more now!

Thank you all for your continued support and prayers throughout my journey too. My faith in the power of our Lord is still strong.  None of us are alone, we are all in this together with Him.

Isaiah 53:5
"But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed."
