Annual Candle Light Prayer Time for Brian...

Hey! We just wanted to remind everyone about our Annual Candle Light Prayer Time for Brian. It will be THIS Sunday, 12/21 @ 6pm in front of our NEW home.

*16923 Sunset Point Court

Baton Rouge, La 70816

Our neighborhood is Clearlake Estates. It is off S. Harrell's Ferry. If you are coming from the Central area you can come down the Thruway and you would stay on O'Neal Lane and take a LEFT onto S. Harrell's Ferry and our neighborhood is the first one right after St. Jean Vianney Catholic church.  If you are coming from South Baton Rouge or anther area you want to get to S. Harrell's Ferry : )

This is such a special time for Brian...for us to all stand together as one thanking God for saving Brian and to pray for complete healing...And he gets a chance to visit with so many that he doesn't usually get to visit with...

So we have 8 weeks til little Emmie Claire arrives!!! if not before! hahaha Brian has been practicing holding a life like baby doll in therapy to practice for Emmie Claire! So sweet and so special...I pray she brings some light into his life...

Praying for everyone this Christmas season...that through some of the sadness that we can SEE our blessings and focus on the reason for the season : )

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the many, many blessings You have given us...and for the many that I know are coming...Lord, I pray for this Candle Light Prayer Time for Brian...that You will move in a way that ONLY YOU can do...I continue to pray for Brian's healing...from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet Lord...knowing it is only by Your Grace and Your power that this can be done...We ask these things in Your Son's name.


I love you Daddy, I love you Brian

Jacob Michael, Emmie Claire and Kimen

Happy Christmas Season!!!
Such a joy to read your message! It is so good to see how good our God is even in the midst of struggles. I wish every earthly father would take their role as seriously as Brian. The world would be such a beautiful place if every child had such a loving Daddy like God intended for them.

My prayers are still with you, Kimen... for your healthy pregnancy and delivery of a healthy Emmie Claire. For Jacob Michael to continue to grow in his love of the Lord and understanding of the Lord's Love for him. Always, for Brian to continue to heal fully especially his sight so he can do all the things that would give Glory to God as he honors Him by loving and faithfully serving his family. For all of you, your friends, family and those that help you throughout the year...that Our Lord gives you His joy and strength and His peace to carry on each day.

I may not get a chance to make it out to the Candle Light Prayer Time this year. My niece's family is in town from CA and I haven't seen them in many years. We are celebrating her son's 8th birthday out of town that morning! It will be a blessing!!! If I'm able and back, I'll surprise you. But, if I'm not there, just know that I'm with y'all in spirit.

God Bless!!!

Dear Kimen,
It was so wonderful to read your journal tonight! This is a very special time for not only you and all of your family but our family and so many others too. It will be a bit different driving instead of walking down the street!
Christmas time is truly a time of reflection not only on God's gift of His Son to all, but of our family, friends and our life. Such a special time and we know it has to be very special for all of you this year! With Emmie Claire almost here and a beautiful new home, your life has truly been one full of blessings this year.
To each of you and your families we will continue to keep Brian in our prayers and will look forward to hearing about how Brian is doing in 2015. We know he will continue as only Brian can, to be a wonderful father to Emmie Claire as he has worked so hard to be for Jacob and now practicing holding his daughter. That is truly beautiful.
Merry Christmas to all and we will see you soon!
Harvey, Elaine and family
