A Praise and a Prayer Request

Praise the Lord with us for how quickly I am getting well!! He is hearing your prayers!! I only napped once yesterday, and felt pretty good all day long. I am feeling good this morning too!

We have another urgent need for prayer as Addie Mae started feeling poorly yesterday. She has pain in her ear and was burning up with a fever last night. From what I can tell with my untrained eye and an oto-scope, her right ear is infected. Normally we would treat this on our own with garlic infused oil, but because she is getting on a plane in three days, we are headed to our doctor again this morning. Do you think I should just ask if he would come to China with us?

It is in the trials that the Lord can show Himself strong through us!! Pray for Addie with us. Pray that the Lord can use all of this for His glory.

    Just want you to know I’m praying for you as you are praying for me! I hope Addie’s ear infection goes away fast. I’m glad you are also feeling better everyday, Steph. The power of prayer is awesome! You are right about in the trials the Lord shows Himself strong through us! Praying for good health and safe travels for you!

    We are praying for health and healing and for God to be strong in our human weakness!! Did you see the verse on our blog this morning?

    Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.
    Jeremiah 32:17

    • Steph says:

      Thank you for this verse. Nothing is too hard for Him! Nothing! Nothing! We are resting in His promises. Your prayers mean SO much.

  3. Connie says:

    So thankful for an all wise all knowing God. So thankful that He knows all and is in control of ALL things. Praying for all of you. Especially for you, Stephanie, and Addie Mae, and Eliza. You will soon have her in your arms!
    Love you.

    I’m sorry Addie Mae isn’t feeling great either. I have to wonder, however, if God is providing you with a little extra “medical insurance” with the antibiodics to be sure you don’t catch anything while you’re there? Just speculation on my part, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we get to Heaven and God chuckles and says, “You wouldn’t believe what you didn’t get while you were there!” 🙂 I love you all so very much. Travel safe and healthy!
