BIG thanks to all of you who prayed for Isaiah today. He fasted until after 2:00 p.m. as there were lots of kids at the hospital. Through it all he never complained. We worked on memorizing Joshua 1:9 together throughout the morning and as we were finally called in for his "sleepy test" (or "lumbar puncture" as they call it) and I carried him down the hall, he recited it to me softly: Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified. Do not be discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.
We're asking for grace to live out of faith - not fear. We were shown x-rays today which revealed worsening fractures in his spine. There are a couple complex issues before us. Please pray for mercy.
