“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” – Isaiah 40:31.

Prayers please.

This week has been trying to say the least.

Monday I started the preparations to go out of town for the Warrior Dash, this Saturday.  Going away even for one night with 4 kids take a huge amount of planning and preparing.
Our plan was to leave tonight for Manchester Tn, where we would camp out with some friends until the Dash on Saturday.

Tuesday, our plans changed. I got a phone call Tuesday afternoon from a very close family friend letting me know that they had lost their 9 month old baby girl, Ivey, due to a tragic accident.  I can not even begin to put into words how heavy my heart is for my friends. This is the second child they have lost. When something like this happens everything else is so unimportantThere are no words.... I can not begin to imagine what they are going through.
Tonight is the visitation and the funeral is tomorrow. 
I have a giveaway and some other posts prepared but will not post again until next week.

Please say a prayer for this family.
My prayer is that they will cry out to God. That God would surround them with comfort and peace.  That God would bring restoration and healing in a supernatural way.
Maddox & Ivey
Sebastian & Ivey
Ivey Madelyn

Grace and peace,

I have tears in my eyes for your friends. After watching my sister deal with the loss of her daughter, I can say that there is NOTHING that is worse here on this earth (and to lose 2?...unimaginable). Sending fervent prayers heavenward for this family. May they find comfort in God's arms.
