Thursday, Feb. 26

This is Lisa again, Jen asked me to update the blog. It's been a rough several days. Brad is resting now. He and Jenny went out for a drive today, just to get a little change of scenery. I know the family is so grateful for everyone's prayers for Brad's peace. He has had more of the medications today to help with anxiety and ease the breathing, as well as suppress the seemingly constant cough--those have helped keep him a little more comfortable; however, he remains very weak, and very tired, both physically and emotionally. We know all of you are praying so hard for Brad, and for Jenny, and we thank you. This situation, as it always has been, is in God's hands. We continue to beseech Him for healing, but most of all, for Brad to feel God's presence, and to draw comfort and strength from that presence. "And to Him who is able to do, immeasurably more, than all we ask or imagine..." Eph. 3:20

Brad and Jenny - I am praying for you with confidence! Praying that you will feel the power of the Holy Spirit and you will be restored!!! Be confident that God will see you through this...and rest in the knowledge that this is in His control and His children are lifting you up to Him in prayer!!!

Thinking of you and praying too. God will continue to be a strong presence in your home and give Brad the courage and comfort he needs. As well as the rest of this precious family. What an incredible journey of faith and encouragement that you share with total strangers as well as your friends...

Praying that you feel God's ever loving hands as he holds you dearly and loves you - each of you. Praying for peace in your bodies and souls. Praying that all your supplements and organics are making a difference.
