Notes From the Porch (thirty-nine): Prayers Needed

August 23, 2015

I shared this on instagram yesterday but would covet your prayers friends as I head into these final two weeks of this treatment round and am now dealing with some new news. Thank you so much for all of your prayers!

Thank you to so many of you who have been praying for so many years of this journey and specifically for the last day in the ER due to severe pain that we could not get controlled. Thankfully there was nothing life threatening that was found but unfortunately we have discovered a new area of my body that Lyme was attacking that is now "rearing its ugly head". 

While at this time I don't feel comfortable sharing more details (as I am still processing and will be finding out more information in the weeks to come) I do appreciate your prayers for this news and the severe pain which has not diminished. I also appreciate your prayers for my little heart which is hurting at this new news.

 I find hope and comfort in while this is a surprise to me it is not to the Lord who carries us each day (Psalm 68:19), understands that we are made of dust, and who promises to work out all things for His purpose. Thank you friends for all of your support and prayers. You are a blessing.

  2. Praying for you dear friend. While I've never actually met you, the interactions we've had over the last week have been dear. I trust that the Lord is being gracious to you and proving to you His unfailing love. He holds you in the palm of his magnificent hand.
