Please Pray

I've been following Kelly's blog for a while and although I don't know her in real life I feel like we're friends. She gave birth to a baby girl tonight named Harper. Harper is in very serious condition and is being airlifted to AR Children's Hospital. Here's a link to Kelly's post asking for prayer.

This hits especially close to home for me since our daughter Caitlin was rushed to AR Children's Hospital when she was born. She required emergency brain surgery and the doctors warned us the surgery was very risky and she might not survive and even if she did they were pretty sure she'd be handicapped. Caitlin is now 8 years old and is a running, laughing, living testimony to the grace and mercy of God. She was just recommended for Gifted and Talented at school and is turning out to be quite an athlete.

Our God is faithful and merciful and He is still on His throne. He's watching over Harper and He's the Great Physician. He's not worried about the doctors prognosis.

Thanks for praying, Lisa!

I remember when Caitlin was born (we share a birthday!) and I remember her surgery too. Amazing how God's hand has been upon her life. Praying the same for Harper.

I didn't know Kelly at OBU...she was younger than me, but I met her in October at the Razorback game. She is the sweetest heart is so heavy for them right now.
