Dear Sarah,


Your posts give me strength, understanding and hope as we are scared and frightened by our future. Emma has relapsed with Rhabdo, found out on May 30. We were devastated to say the least but now we are six weeks into treatment and strength and survival mode have set in. Thank you for your continuos fight for our kids, your giving and caring heart! I think of you often and pray for your strength to continue.


Just wanted to make you aware of her situation. Hope to hear from you soon.


Sincerely,

Amanda Everett & Emma Thornton

Just a note of encouragement to take to heart the knowledge that God's love for you is never ending and His purpose for you is bigger than any problems we could ever struggle with. God promises to fill our needs as we share compassion and His love to others. Even while you walk through the difficult burdens and trials in your life continue to look for opportunities to encourage and uplift others and we know you will be enriched.

But be wise and prepare yourself "Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace." Protect yourself  "In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God," and strengthen yourself  "praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication." Stay on God's focus for you  "To that end keep alert with all perseverance,"  Ephesians 6:14-18 

With a focus on God not promising to always gift us with what we "want" but does promise to provide what He knows we "need," remember with God ALL things truly are possible. May you see fruit of His work on you, with you, though you, and around you.

We continue to cover you in prayer. Hold fast to Hebrews 6:19 ⚓️ 

Sending you love and hugs

Thinking about you today Sarah and praying God Blesses you this Mothers Day. A mother's role as a steward of God's love for the children He places in her care, for whatever amount of time He grants, has a spiritual, emotional, and physical impact on them as many others around you, can last generations, and is full of eternal rewards. Once a Mother always a mother.

God has a special mold He uses when He makes a woman into a Mother. When we are under a heavy burden what we as mankind might see as unworthiness, inadequacies, or flaws, turns out to be what He used to mold you perfectly, with all the special gifts and talents and uniqueness needed within your family to enable you to continue to share His love through you in all situations.  YOU are changing the world one heartbeat at a time.     

may God continue to bless you and your dear family.

Sending you hugs and lifting you up in prayers....

Sarah,

How wonderful that things are looking up for your family.  I told you before that I am once again feeding the birds in my yard and ever so often Vinny pays me a visit.  I find bird poop on the driver's door of my car just below the window (always the gentleman) and never on the window.  I always look up and say "Thanks Vinny".  I think of him often and your family.  Just so happy to read your uplifting post and know things are looking up for everyone.  Its so good to know you are all having a good time.  Its about time for all of you.  Keep up the happy thoughts and thank you so much Vinny for the rainbow - its was amazing!

Dear Sarah,

It was so nice to read your entry today. I am the volunteer pushing the book cart that you met at the hospital several weeks ago. It was such a pleasure to meet you and Desi.  I am so glad that she had a fun time out with her friend and  that she felt the healing power of laughter.

I loved seeing the beautiful rainbow and how awesome that the children on the bus thought of Vinnie. I teach preschool,and when one lady was dropping off her child,we noticed she had bird poop in her hair.  Then when I came home I got your Caring Bridge. I think Vinnie has been very busy!

God Bless you and your family and may you feel Vinnie close to you every day.

Love,

Mary

The raging storm has changed from one of medical focus to walking with grieving hearts. Few words anyone can offer can ease the pain other than saying we join with all here to continue to pray for your family each day as you walk through new valleys of life with heavy hearts. You have shown yourselves full of compassion and a capacity to love under all circumstances. We pray God leads your hearts to continue to reach out to others in need so you can richly bless them, while He comforts and mends your aching hearts.

HOLD FAST to the only real basis of hope and comfort in this fallen world. HE is the anchor. Hebrews 6:18-20 ⚓️  "...we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, ..."  May God continue to surround your family in His love. May your light of Faith continue to rise as God guides you each into your tomorrows with Him by your side.

Psalm 37: 5 "Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. 6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. 7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;"

Psalm 37: 23 "The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in his way;  24 though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the Lord upholds his hand."

In your grieving may you commit your paths to His guidance as He walks with you holding your hands and guides you through this new darkness.

Sending hugs and lifting all of you up in prayers....
