621 - Sarahjane and Ministry Button

Good morning - I feel like i just got started back to blogging and have to take another break. I won't be back until the first real day of school - Monday!! Tomorrow we leave to go to Cincinnati Children's Hospital to take my Sarahjane there for her first visit. I am very..........excited............that does not seem like the right word. But i am ready to get the final diagnosis and move forward. I am ready to know this Goliath we are fighting and get my sling shot all stretched out and ready to aim and fire this giant out of the park! But wait..... Could it have already been done, I mean the fighting and victory already been done through the prayers of so many of you and friends??? I am believing!

Early into this battle her medicine started hurting her stomach - very common. I stopped the medicine and she did great for about 3 days. Then all the pain came back, back to limping, and not a good thing. We started the medicine again, but took it differently. Stomach trouble got better, but still not good enough.

So more and more stomach aches and so I stopped the medicine again. One of her doctors told me to get some other over the counter stuff to take with everything and I just kind of froze up. I was/am just praying so hard that she doesn't have to be on so many medication. Well, we stopped the meds again and she has not had to be back on them at all - no medicine for almost 3 weeks! maybe more... No complaints of leg hurting, no stomach, no nothing - well maybe her head from time to time. (If you knew how active this kid was you would have a headache too. ha)

So we press on. This is why I use the word "excited". I am excited to see what may have already happened. Either way God is good, merciful, and we will praise Him!


We finally have a website button for everyone to put on their blog - PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!! - that would direct others to our ministry, Speaking Thru Me Ministries. We would so appreciate it!! And the directions are below. Thank you to Charnita for designing it and helping us put it on our own blogs...

I'm praying for you & SJ.

Here's the prayer I left over at Siesta Fiesta:

Oh Lord, we raise up Leigh and SJ to you this day. Lord, You know their needs and You promise to meet our needs according to Your glorious riches in Christ Jesus. I ask You for healing power to flow from the top of SJ's head to the tip of her toes. Lord, we ask You to touch her in a special way. Lord, i ask You give Leigh Your peace that passes all understanding. Lord, I ask You to give Leigh wisdom as she meets with the doctor--that her thoughts will be clear and focused. She will know the right questions to ask at the right time. I pray for the doctors to have wisdom for the right treatment plan if necessary for SJ. Lord, as Your children, I ask that the plan prescribed will be the right plan the first time. I lift up all concerns this family has and ask You to perfect all that concerns them. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

I will await updates.

Let us know what the doctor said about SJ. I have a dear friend who may be facing a diagnosis of JRA with her almost 2 year old. She has been on your blog and may contact you for support and so the two of you can encourage each other.

See you next week.
