Praise and Prayers (By Natalie)

This last weekend was amazing. I prayed that we would have a Memorial Day Weekend Miracle. God sure gave us one. Before the weekend started, Aaron’s lungs were doing poorly but starting on Saturday, we began to hear word that he was turning around. There was such a dramatic improvement in his lungs. Praise God for answering that prayer of mine! We learned on Sunday night that the main doctor considered him to be in a recovery phase. On Monday, we even had Praise God Party #1! When you are praying for Aaron, please be sure to give God glory and thanks for the great things that he has done so far. By the way, Michaela (our daughter) got her miracle of healing on Memorial Day weekend 4 years ago—that is when her reflux was diagnosed and she began to eat.

Today, Aaron had a little bit of a setback. First, he got a really high fever. We are praying that his temperature will return to normal and that his body will recover from the chemo. Secondly, he was taken off of the sedation on Tuesday while he was still on the ventilator. For a while he was doing OK but he then started gagging on the ventilator for 12 hours straight. It was really amazing to see him open his eyes—he even started crying when he saw me. He also answered a couple of yes/no questions by shaking his head. Today, they had to bump up the sedation and try to get him regulated again. It was probably too soon to take him off of the sedation yesterday.

I have so many Bible verses that I am clinging to. God’s Word is true! My verse for today is “But without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6. I am still praying in faith believing that God can, is and will continue to heal Aaron for His glory. When going through trials, God is interested in where our faith will be shown to be. I would encourage you to think about where your faith lies—is it the medicine, the doctors, God, something else? My faith is in God who created the universe—who created Aaron!—there is nothing that is too difficult for Him!

Thanks for the continued prayers and all that you all are doing. We thank you for standing with us. (If there are any Bible verses that God lays on your heart, send them my way!)
