Audrey Claire
"No weapon formed against you shall prosper" ~Isaiah 54:17

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE say a special prayer for our precious friends daughter, Audrey Claire, and her equally precious family; Lynn, Marshall, Georgia Kate, and Charlie Marshall!  


Doctors found that 6 year old Audrey was severely anemic and then just last night found a baseball size mass on her right lung.  They are dealing with so much so fast right now and need prayers filled with strength, comfort, belief, and most importantly healing for sweet Audrey!! 

I know they will travel this journey with the same strength that they have
entered it with and will come out at the end even stronger!  It's amazing how a family crisis like this can change you, even during these first few hours and days.  Although my recent journey with Alli was different, it was still very much the same...At the end of the day it's your baby, there's something wrong, and as a mother it kills you that you can't immediately wave your hand or kiss it and make it better.  Instead, Lynn and Marshall will place their daughter into a surgeons hands next Tuesday for full removal of the mass. 

We fall into the daily rhythms of life...even my family, fresh from our crisis and now at home...has now been plagued with to-do lists, doctors appointments, school field trips, dance lessons, birthdays, lunch dates, play dates, business, desires, wants, and needs.  Because these daily rhythms become habit so quickly I am reminded because of the Stanger's current battle of where my family was sitting just 7 months ago....John and I were in the same seat of fear, uncertainty, and state of the unknown that my sweet friend Lynn and her husband Marshall are now seated in.  That raw feeling came flooding back to me today as I imagined what the two of them were feeling and almost haunted by my own memories.  I want to grab them both and hug them and tell them I love them and everything is going to be OK.  All I know to do is PRAY, BELIEVE, and take the same FAITH that I had with Alli and have it for Audrey and her family.  If I've taken ANYTHING from our journey with Alli, it's to not hope for the best, but to believe for it....despite the cards stacked against us, despite what the world around us is saying.  So, dear sweet Audrey, I am believing for perfect health for you and I beg you friends and prayer warriors to stand in the gap for this child and family and do the same! 

"So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."  ~Isaiah 55:11

We have asked, now we wait, and EXPECT great things!!
