People don’t understand that us only children-our mothers’ hearts beat for us when we are hurting, their hearts beat with ours when the good times are upon us. People don’t understand our hearts can’t beat without theirs.

My amazing, precious mom in law had a massive stroke this morning and will be going into open heart surgery tomorrow. I am crying out to you all-if you are reading this-it is because God brought you here. He wants you to be a part of this. Please pray with me! I am petitioning and begging for a miracle. Please Lord!! I don’t know why this is happening to an angel here on earth. But then that’s just it. She is from heaven and is lent to us. I don’t know what tomorrow holds. I don’t know how this will unfold. I do know that God is in control. As out of control we feel right now, He is not a God of chaos, but of order and control. He loves her more than all of us do. Which is impossible to understand as everyone who knows her adores, loves and appreciates her. Always serving, helping, doing, praying. My Rhonda is so deeply beautiful-her soul radiates Christ, joy and love. For everyone. Not just the shiny nice people. The people in the corner of a room no one will talk to. Grumpy people. Children. Older people. The unloveables.

Please friends, please pray God’s will is she will be fully recovered and given back to us.

That God would heal her for His glory.

Please pray for mercy on our whole family, Rob especially.

Please pray God would choose the perfect surgeon and be the surgeons hands.

That she would awake and we can now serve and love on her. Please friends, pray. I need you. Our family desperately needs your prayers.

    Michelle, I have never met you but I was friends with Chad in jr high and high school, especially senior year when we were both on ASB. I think of his sweet parents daily when I drive past the neighorhood they lived in during HS, that I now live near. I am so sorry to hear of this, I will be praying for all of you! Please tell Chad I said hello and both of you let me know if I can help on any way.

    Praying for Rhonda and each of you.
    Isaiah 41:10
    “Fear not, for I am with you;
    Do. Not be dismayed, for I am your GOD;
    I will strengthen you, I will help you,
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
