Day Six and we're outta here!

Annie finally hit the jackpot last night--oddly enough, while Andy was watching her down at the hospital so Bill & I could attend a senior awards ceremony with David. (Yeah--David won a scholarship that will at least pay for his books next year!)

So, yeah, Annie cleared her gut, and was discharged today. What a relief to be home! I can't believe how happy I am to be home. I think Annie is, too, but might take a few days to be on top of her game again. She is one tired little girl.

I think this one is going to be short--we are all pretty worn out. Thank you again for praying for us--and believe me, we will do our best to make sure this situation is a one-time event, never to be repeated again!

I'm so glad for you to be sleeping in your own bed tonight, and that our girl is feeling a bit lighter.

David was happy to see Andy and Jack tonight.

Sorry, Pam--I appreciate your thinking of me. :)

God is good all the time; of this we are assured:

And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God. - Mar 10:18 KJV

And He implores us to make our requests known:

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. - Phl 4:6 KJV

We are further encouraged to pray for one another:

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. - Jam 5:16 KJV

And when we pray we are to rely on the Holy Spirit who helps us pray:

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. - Rom 8:26 KJV

Lord, please heal my niece. Please, comfort my sister and her family. Please, Lord, hear us. Give us the strength, faith, and blessed assurance that You truly are our only hope.

amen
