Today is March 1st, that means we are 9 days away from boarding a flight next Sunday to St Jude - that means we are 10 days away from Nicky's MRI ---- and hours of waiting and praying for results.

It's been a frustrating 2 months in the fact that Nicky is doing great! Why would I say frustrating, it doesn't seem like we have a reason to fly back to St Jude. He's doing so well his speech has improved - he gets fitted for hearing aids - sound levels right after the MRI. He was psychically fitted a month ago by a local audiologist so now we get to pick them up. The last few days everywhere I return the message is loud and clear that I am to give all my anxiety and worries to The Lord. My new iPhone app is a devotional called, Jesus Calling by Sarah Young (thank you to my sister Lindsay for telling me about it) ( not the free lite version) today it said the following:::

March 1 When something in your life or thoughts makes you anxious, come to Me and talk about it. Bring Me your prayer and petition with thanksgiving, saying: “Thank You, Jesus, for this opportunity to trust You more.” Though the lessons of trust that I send to you come wrapped in difficulties, the benefits far outweigh the cost. Well-developed trust will bring you many blessings, not the least of which is My Peace. I have promised to keep you in perfect Peace to the extent that you trust in Me. The world has it backwards, teaching that peace is the result of having enough money, possessions, insurance, and security systems. My Peace, however, is such an all-encompassing gift that it is independent of all circumstances. Though you lose everything else, if you gain My Peace you are rich indeed. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. —Philippians 4:6 You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. —Isaiah 26:3

It's a struggle to do this every day - but I am trying my best to understand and see that. I pray over Nicky daily thanking God for everyday - to remove the radial changes and to remove inflammation, to never allow cancer or any other growth to ever harm him. Praying everyday that he will need no surgically intervention. It's tough when we are told that more than likely he will need something - this is where we need to stand on faith and KNOW that God is in complete control. We ask you as this scan draws near to pray for our Nicky, that no matter what God has planned that He guides the Doctors and neurosurgeons to make the right choices for our little guy. Praying that giving this situation more time will give us better answers and ultimately healing is happening every second and every minute of everyday! Pray for our family to remain strong through it all - in my heart I just want to hear NED and get on a plane and come home - ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE THROUGH OUR LORD!!!!

We also lost too many kids this past few months, prayers for Bradley Allen's Family, Christian Page's family, Chris Bell's family, Ehrren Gillespie's family, Aaron Bell's family .... Please pray for peace and Gods grace for these families.
