Life and Death

Today is Jacob Ryan and Mary Grace's 1st birthdays. But, instead of celebrating on earth today, they are with Jesus, celebrating with Jesus, while their families are celebrating on earth. Both of these babies were born with T-18. Jacob lived 138 days and Mary Grace lived 7 short hours.
Tomorrow is Magdalena Grace's funeral. Please wear pink in honor of her life. Please keep her family in your prayers as they prepare to bury their daughter tomorrow morning. Pray for peace, strength, and calmness.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My health is taking a bad turn again, and I'm going back to the GI dr. later this month. I am desperately seeking answers, a shadow of hope, or some kind of procedure that can be done to help me get better, or cure me, but I don't think that exists. Today has been the first day in 4 days that I have needed my pain meds.
Please pray that I can find something to help me and pray for wisdom for my Dr.'s . Pray that the pain will go away and for a wanting to do what I know is good for me.

What a special prayer you are requesting, Emily -- that you will want to do what is good for you. I struggle with this battle, too, of not wanting to do what is good for me -- exercising, eating the right foods, etc. May God grant us His favor and instill within us a deep desire to do with our lives what He wants us to do.
Hugs,

Kaylin's right next to Mason. I think she's changed the most of all of them. Annabell wasn't there.
