    Dear Kris,

    You have been on my mind much lately!  The anniversary of your accident is ahead, and with that many memories and many blessings for which to be thankful.  We are soooooooo glad you are here.  The outcome could have been so different.  We have such a BIG GOD!  He is so faithful.  I pray that you will continue to heal and gain strength in each passing day.  Know that you are loved and thought of often by us up here in the Northland.  Say "hi" to James and the kids for us. 

    Luv ya,

    Deb    :-)

    It was so nice to see you and visit with you last evening at your place.  So glad the house is selling- a big worry gone.  You are always so upbeat and honest- those are two things I have always liked about you.  Hope your trip back to Spring Valley goes well.  Hope to see you again soon!

    Dear Kris and Beth,

    I remember you and Beth at church when we had overnights and other things and you two were such close friends them. The friendship you two have is such a blessing from God and I know you are closer than ever. In fact the whole family is so bonded together. It is just the Lord.

    So glad to know the surgery was less taxing than some other surgeries have been.

    You are in my prayers.

    Praise God for your continued improvement!  We've been praying - and will continue to pray for you, James, and the kids.  Hooray for summer and sunshine!   (it has to come out sometime! - it's been mighty cloudy up here for awhile)   I'll be praying that you can enjoy this summer with a new kind of joy.

    Dear Kris,

    This is my third message today and I couldn't find the last two. Jesus is standing by your side as a shelter. He knows how much you can take and to be expectant because more answers to prayers are on the way. When Jesus healed it says that He was moved with compassion and that faith moves by love;  He dearly loves you Kris. This is a paraphrase from memory, but the Word of God says that "As the rain watereth the earth and bringeth forth bud, so My Word will not return unto me void, but it will accomplish what I please and it will prosper in the thing that I send it."  God's Word cannot return unto us empty because it is substance, and is full of Power. When the Word is spoken in faith we are to believe that we receive and trust God to accomplish the fullness of the promise and to bring it into this dimension. The analogy of a seed is good because it takes time for the seed to make its way out of the earth, but while it is in the earth it is alive. The Word of God is alive. You know all this.   

    Dear Lord encourage Kris' heart and mind. Minister to her as she sleeps and minister to James and the family. Thank You that we can depend on You to bring Your promises forth and in due time. Your Word cannot return void when placed in the good ground of faith.

    You are an amazing encouragement to me and so many Kris and your ministry has just begun.

    Vickie Nelson   P.S. Hope # 3 makes it in.

    Hey Kris and James- Thinking of you.  Wondering how things are going.  Soon school will be out and the kids will be home, won't that be fun?  They have so much room to roam on your farm there.  Have a great weekend!
