Thanks for posting all the pics - I almost feel like I'm right there with you through the pics and blog entries! I'm glad to hear that Noah's tests are 'so-far-so-good' and will continue to pray that the Lord blesses all of his docs, nurses and lab techs with wisdom and compassion. Miss and love you guys a lot!!! Clara
I was just telling a friend the other day that if you added up all the roller coaster rides in America the past four weeks would greatly surpase all of them combined. We as a family are standing in faith for what the Word of God tells us and what the Holy Spirit tells us and girding up every thought that does not line up with what we know is true in our Spirit. We as a family cannot began to tell you how we love all of you and are being held up by your prayers. Thank you all for all the spiritual warfare you have done for precious little Noah, for your calls, your gifts of food, presents, flowers, cards, and for keeping our family smiling and laughing during this extremely stressful time. I was reading a couple of days ago in Hebrews: "Therefore, then since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses (who have borne testimony to the Truth) let us stip off and throw aside every emcumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readlily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us. Looking away from all that will distract to Jesus who is the leader and source of our faith. And that is how we approach each day. Knowing that God is fully able to complete the healing that He has started in Noah's body. We keep praying that his body is made perfect on the inside as he looks on the outside. Love, Kaija
I left a comment earlier this morning but apparently it didn't "take". I was reading a devotion on distress today and it quoted 1 Chronicles 4:9."There was a man named Jabez who was more distinguished than any of his brothers. His mother named him Jabez because his birth had been so painful (Jabez sounds like a Hebrew term meaning "distress" or "pain"). He was the one who prayed to the God of Israel, 'Oh, that you would bless me and extend my lands! Please be with me in all that I do, and keep me from all trouble and pain!' And God granted him his request."This is the prayer of those in pain or in distress...of Noah's family and those who love them. We will not stop lifting up this child...we know the battle is not over yet!
I talked with Kaija today before this happened--I know that Noah is cradled in God's hands--when you can't hold him, know that the Father is.I was thinking about the great cloud of witnesses yesterday that Kaija mentioned--and saw Grandpa Steve praying over Noah and all of you.Be strong and couragous--the King of Kings walks with you!I am so grateful for the pictures and the updates--it becomes so real--your struggles, your tears, your wonderful sense of humor.God is the same, yesterday, today , and forever. I believe in the resurection power of Jesus--I believe in miracles--I believe the Word of God--I believe Noah is being healed before our eyes.God bless you all and KNOW that when you are exhausted and overwhelmed, that you have an ARMY of people holding you before the Father--holding up your hands--and we are awaiting the battle to be WON!Love in Christ, Sue
Hi Adrienne (& family),I have been keeping up to date with little Noah through all of your posts. I have the image of Noah still in your body at the Bee's Purse Party - have been praying for you since that night. I am confidant in God's plan for your family and pray for your strength and endurance while living in a hospital and while trying to maintain nomalacy for Emily. Keep up the "Good Fight!"
We love you guys! WE are thinking about you and praying for you.Ry and Amanda
Still praying and believing!God Bless,Teresa Arnold
