My grandma just called to make sure we were okay. Her sister Shirley calls her every night to read her my blog post and they were worried since it isn't posted yet! Of course, I had to take some time to fill grandma in.... "I love you, love you" were her words to me tonight as we ended our call.
Does God answer our prayers? Yes, last night I asked we all pray for Ceceila and Haley.... people have already been praying for them and I know several more have added them to their prayers! Today Ceceila got the best news ever... She no longer has leukemia!!! God is so good and yes he does answer prayers!!!! Haley looks great today too... I teased her about looking like she just got back from vacation! Please continue to lift these two wonderful women up in prayer! God is good and God provides!
Our family was also blessed today! A couple of months ago Scott Vieregge contacted me (friend) telling me he shared Madison's story with his CEO. They (Brett and Julie) have a charity called Swing fore Hope that is dedicated to impacting and financially assisting local families fighting cancer. Julie contacted me a few weeks ago wanting to help us and wanted to know more about Madison. Today I received a text that they are taking a huge bill off of our shoulders and paying it in full! This is how God works! He uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things! We just have to answer his call and be his hands and feet!
God blessed Madison and I today by sending us a special visitor that we have waited to see for a long time. Jil (close family friend) spent all day with us and honestly I think we have at least another 7 days of talking to do before we are all caught up! When Jil arrived she began to cry and then so did I... Sometimes you just need a big hug from a friend! I love seeing the wonderful woman, wife, and mom Jil has become! I'm so proud of her and blessed to have her in my life! I feel she got a huge glimpse into my life today that not many have seen/felt.... We had several moments we both looked at each other with tears in our eyes. Days like today I'm glad someone is their to share it with.
All of Madison's bone marrow results aren't back yet, but they are expecting them to be tomorrow. Madison will have clinic tomorrow so we should know the results.
I know we have days that we wonder if God hears our prayers and cries.... He hears us! I pray that this post shows you just a glimmer of what God can do in your life! God cares for you! God loves you, loves you! I know God has blessed you today even IF your day was horrible.....How has God blessed you today? Please feel free to share that blessing!
