Natalia was walking across the room, when her foot slipped and she fell. Her scream foretold what was to come. After icing the leg and some Motrin, she felt better. This morning her surgeon wanted to bring her in and do some X-rays. Unfortunately, she broke her leg....tibial fracture. In the name of JESUS and through HIS living blood, I declare healing over Natalia's its entirety. Healing over the new fracture, healing over the surgical site, growth of her native bone over the new bone.....quick recovery......a touch of your HEALING hand, Lord JESUS....... Psalm 107:20, 28 He sent out his word and healed them;he rescued them from the grave. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. Jeremiah 17:14 Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise. Psalm 107:20 He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. Jeremiah 30:17 But I will restore you to healthand heal your wounds, declares The Lord........ Thank you all for your continued prayers and support!

Notes of Gratitude....

To the lovely lady who sat next to us in service at church this morning....and after finding out that we gave our tickets to the presentation away due to illness, proceeded to BLESS our family with tickets to the very last night of the Christmas presentation. What an AMAZING performance!!!! To the secret family that has wholeheartedly embraced our family and adopted us for Christmas..... To my wonderful teacher and friend, who gave our children an awesome book to study and be in God's word..... To the generous hearts at ORBITAL PAINTBALL....who out of the goodness of their hearts decided to throw a fundraiser for Natalia to raise money for her outstanding medical bills...... BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD....for he knows our family's needs, and he used YOU to BLESS our family!!!!!!! THANK YOU for giving us such a wonderful BLESSING!

Positive for the flu....

We went back today to get retested for the flu because we are ALL running high fevers. Sure enough, Natalia tested positive for the flu. We are all taking Tamiflu and in bed. Praying that God's MIGHTY HEALING hand sweep over our household, speed up our recovery, and strengthen our bodies. By his stripes...WE ARE HEALED. Jeremiah 17:14 Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise. James 5:15-16 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. Luke 8:48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”

Right after posting on 11/25, on the night before thanksgiving, Natalia woke up with excruciating leg pain. The pain was on the surgical was so bad, she was screaming. An unexpected surprise in the middle of the night....memories right away started to flood in, and my mind went there. Remembering those awful pain-stricken nights right before her diagnosis was almost inevitable, and truly physically unbearable. My husband took one look at my face and said in an authoritative voice.....WE WILL GLORIFY AND PRAISE HIM......NO MATTER WHAT. That jolted me back to reality....the reality of who is really in charge, who is in control........focusing and fixing my eyes on reality. The fact is that we must push through these times of doubt, where you are staggering and unable to balance. JESUS CHRIST is my reality.....he is very much real in our lives, he is sovereign, his perfect will and purpose WILL BE done over my baby girl's life....NO MATTER WHAT. It is very difficult, after walking a raw journey like cancer, to not go there. With the seeming "threat" of recurrence looming over our lives, and her weakened immune system, we must be ready for those unexpected surprises....knowing that JESUS is ALREADY ahead of us fighting our battle. Last weekend, she developed shortness of breath and wheezing. We took her to the Dr's on Monday they checked her heart (because of the antibiotics she's on), did a leg X-ray and blood work. The blood work showed that she can come off the Bactrim! Yaaaay! Amen! Wooooo hoooooo! Thank you, JESUS!!! No more weekend/monthly antibiotics. We are still waiting on the doctor to give us the results of the X-rays. #trustingJESUS #glorifyHIMwithus #focused Psalm 34:3 Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together. Psalm 63:4 I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. Psalm 86:12 I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.
