Dad has been pressing forward, day after day, calling and emailing and calling some more, pursuing a consultation appointment at M.D. Anderson.  As of yet, the appointment is still not scheduled, but Dad's efforts are moving us forward, and your generous donations are making it possible for us to pursue the best medical care available.

Mom and Dad are packing their bags.  We are ready when we get the call.  We stand waiting.

Mom spends her days on the couch, resting, and spending time with dear friends and family who are often here, helping, sharing, and pouring their love out on all of us.  Every evening we sit in His presence, and every day we wait for His words.

Pray for that, that we would continually seek His wisdom, the Dad's burden would ease, that he would be able to sleep at night, that Mom would find continual peace, that we all would find rest, and be still in our Father's arms.

"Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place, the Most High, who is my refuge, no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent."  Ps. 91:9,10

Hello =]
I got an email from Melissa Couch about your Mom and I just wanted to let you know that your Mom and all of you will be in our prayers. We will pray for healing and blessing and peace as only Jesus can give. =]
I can't even imagine what it must be like for you... But I do know that Jesus knows all of our hurts, our hopes and our greatest desires and He is with us even now. And that is an encouraging thing!

Here are some verses that have really helped me through some tough times.

Joshua 1:9
I command you- be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord God is with you wherever you go.

Psalm 55:22
Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.

James 4:8a
Draw close to God, and God will draw close to you.

Matthew 21:22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.

Romans 8:38-39 (New Living Translation)
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The Lord Jesus be with you,
With all my Love and Prayers, Marguerite =]
