spinal

Friends,
We're off to Sutter for a scheduled spinal tap and chemo which means we're fasting (a tough reminder at breakfast time.)

We need extra courage today...Isaiah is just so tired of his treatment.

He had a hard moment last night when his mom reminded him about today's plan. He said, "I'm angry and frustrated!" Later he came into the kitchen and asked me if we could "set up a time to pray together."

Thanks for staying with us!

Teacher Penny- Everyday I pray for you as I wear your band. Today I will ask God for an extra scoop of Grace.

Isaiah, I'm so glad you are honest about how you feel and that you are talking with your mom and dad and God about your feelings. I'm praying for continued courage and grace and for your upcoming procedures to go quickly and easily.

Love and Light,

Michelle

Isaiah - I'm SO PROUD of your for knowing exactly where to put your trust... IN GOD! And for praying with your mom and dad. You are so strong, and it's okay to be angry and frustrated! God didn't say it would be easy, but He PROMISES to be here with you. You are always in my thoughts and prayers! I'm sending you and your family big hugs and praying for peace in your hearts.
