Special Prayer Request

Tonight I am going to ask you for favor. I believe that in some way we are all broken. We all have different crosses to bear. Some are just more visible then others. My family's cross happens to be the tramatic accident to our daughter and sister, Makenzie. Everyday life seems to get a bit easier but the loss will never fully go away. Trusting in God' promies helps and brings me much hope and comfort. However, I am human. Don't get me wrong, I am not sad tonight. Makenzie continues to make wonderful improvements. I love her more then ever!

I would like you to pray tonight for my whole family. Please pray for yet another miracle. My other kids have been through more then most elderly in the past 2 years alone! Pray that God will protect their heart and have them to grow up to be the men God made them to be. Please pray for Chris and I. Pray that as a mommy and daddy of a child that we can not fix, that our hearts would be healed and protected. Pray for the miracle of healthy relationships. Taking care of Makenzie is a 24 hour job and then there are 5 other people in this family that have needs. After 2 years tired does not even begin to discribe the overall mood!

As Thanksgiving approches I have so much to be thankful for! God has been so present in my life and His holy Spirit has blessed me with peace, hope and the understand that I am not in control. Everthing is according to his plan and sometimes I don't understand but I am learning to trust more and more everyday! So God, bring it on, let's see what you've got! Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers! They mean so much! We love you all and could not have made it this far without your help! God bless!

I will be praying for you and your family. I have 2 other children besides Michael and it has been hard but God is so faithful. Your daughter is so beautiful, she is truly a gift.
