It Is That Time Again ...PRAYER PRAYER PRAYER

1. Nana (Scott's grandmother) was taken to the hospital today and immediately sent to Vanderbilt for surgery on her heart ... I can't explain to you what this woman means to our family... She is a prayer warrior, she is loving, she is THERE for everything, she is the one person who ALWAYS tells the truth ... She is our ROCK ... We love her so much and at 83 she has more spunk than most people I know ...

2. I have a sister (in my spirit) who received some very confusing adoption information today that has rocked her families world ...

3. China and the devastation of the earthquake ... A piece of my heart will always be in this beautiful country where my daughters were born ...

4. THE BOOK ... I have over 40 writers for this project and invite more ... I can't tell you what reading the stories I already have has done to me in my spirit ... WOW ...

5. The Ivey family ... They just visited there two sweet children in Haiti and had to return home ... They have at least another 6-12 months before they will be home ... My heart prays for them..

6. The Doctor family (my travel family to get Emily) ... They are embarking on their second adoption ... I have been praying for over year for this amazing news ... Nikki is one gifted and talented soul ... She writes amazing things and loves so deeply ... I pray their second child home!

7. Another blog family waiting, waiting on domestic news ... Her emails just break my heart ... She is so ready to be this incredible mother to her child ... Sweet sister it will happen at just the right time !!!

8. Tina ... Her prison ministry ... The hope and love she brings to those women is truly heaven sent ...

9. Hoffman's ... I just love this family ... I love reading about them and hearing their heart ... They will be traveling soon to bring a daughter home from Ethiopia and also from China ... Their generation is going to make God smile so much !!!

10. For all the amazing families waiting to bring home the children they love so deeply in their hearts ... I pray for you each day and thank you for sharing so much of your life w/ so many of us .... Your faith and hope shine through !!!

I will continue to pray for Nana. Chrissie texted me this morning and told me she was in surgery. Had the opprotunity to meet Nana a few yrs back when she and Crystal were visiting in San Diego. Both Tom and I were very touched by her. I have a picture of Nana hold Morgan when she was only a few weeks old. Praying that she is recovery well.

I also had the great pleasure of meeting Nana (a few times, I think), as you know, at KK. I will absolutely pray for her. You're right, she does have a lot of spunk..that's a great word for it. I'll also pray for your other requests.

May I include my own request on here? My aunt, who had breast cancer a while ago, has a recurrence, only this time, it's gone into her chest bone. But, by the Grace of God, they caught it early and she is responding very well to the treatments (chemo and radiation). I have no doubt she'll do just fine, but could obviously use the extra help.

Words cannot express how thankful I am to have "met" you! You encourage and uplift me when I don't feel like going on. I have only my faith left. I know that God's plan is perfect and his timing will be just right!

Thank you so much for your amazing heart and your prayers for us - we don't doubt for one second that God smiles big when he hears all of us down here sending prayers up.

That really means the world to us. What can we pray about for you?

Kristi J said...

Hi Gwen! I'll be praying for your family and friends. My sister, Kelly Putty, has also been in touch with you. She is also adopting from Ethiopia...I just didn't know if you'd make the connection that she is my older sister by 11 months...We're heading to an Ethiopian Fellowship Group cookout in Franklin on Sunday...It is pretty cool to find so many people adopting in our county...Kristi Johnson
