All God!

When we have nothing to rely on but God, we get an overwhelming peace. This may be hard to understand, but the last couple of weeks brought us to this point. Its a point where us as Christians should be at all times, but we often find ourselves relying on other things. It is when these things reach their limit that we cry out to God. Our God has on limits! Therefore put your trust in him and experience the overwhelming peace of God.
The last 24 hours have been all God! Todd had some bleeding for a couple of days that the doctors just could not seem to get completely stop. Last night I prayed for the holy spirit to enter Todd's body and stop the bleeding. When Jerri and I talked to the doctor this morning, he said that the bleeding he was fighting the last couple of days had stop over night and completely dried up. He continued to say the lung x-ray seems to be better today. The doctor seem to be very satisfied and said we just need a quiet day of rest. Today has been just that, a quiet day of rest. Today God showed his Power!!
A song came to mind today "Show Your Power Lord Our God"

We do have an awesome miraculous God!! May HIS glory be shown through this little BIG miracle. Praise God for His peace & comfort. Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him. He knows the path you are to take & it will be possible to walk that path as you walk hand in hand with Him.
Rejoicing with you,

Amen! (And where is that box of tissues that I can't see through my blurry eyes???) Thank you so much for sharing your faith journey with us and allowing us to walk along with you. We continue to pray and trust along with you guys and seek God's healing in Todd's life. It's kind of funny how and when God brings you guys to mind. The other night I was woken up by a toy that was randomly making noises (at least I think that's what it was - Joel threw it in the shower and it hasn't been quite right since). In my VERY groggy state I thought it sounded like a heart monitor, which made me think of you guys. The rest of the night you guys were on my mind and I was even dreaming of the need to be praying for Todd. God certainly uses odd things to get our attention sometimes! We hope that today will be another restful one for you. Please let us know if there is any way that we can be of additional support to you and your family during this week - or whenever. Blessings!

Praise God!!! Isn't he just awesome!? I pray that God continues to show his power in Baby Todd and in your lives as well!

With love and prayers from Aunt Hannah,

My supervisor who used to work in pediatrics thought that since Todd wasn't premature and didn't have hyaline lung disease there was a chance that his lungs would open up on their own.
I'm glad the bleeding stopped.
I think of you and check your blog frequently every day.

Wow!!! To God be the glory. Continue to speak life into Todd's body that every organ will be made whole. I speak for both me and Kimi, not an hour goes by that you guys don't come to our minds and we lift you up in prayer. Todd is going to be a great testimony to what the power of God can do.
-Love Ken and Kimi
