Great is the Name of the Lord

"For the LORD is the great God,
the great King above all gods."

PSALM 95:3


Well, Dad is back in the hospital again. He had to be taken by ambulance Monday afternoon because he was non-responsive and couldn't move when Mom tried to wake him up. His left eye wouldn't open either. He's already had a CT scan which showed that there is a whole lot more swelling and shifting of the brain than there was when he was there two weeks ago. The doctors are wanting to do a biopsy soon, so we can hopefully figure out what this is we're dealing with. Mom just told me that they're hoping to get it done either tomorrow or the next day. We're really praying for the biopsy to go extremely well and for the Lord's will to be accomplished through it. We're also praying for the swelling and ALL of his symptoms to go away very soon.

Anyway, I thought I would give you all a quick update on what's been going on. Thank you so much for all of your prayers and encouragement. It really means a lot to our family! :) We know we serve a great God, and He holds us in the palm of His hand. His timing is perfect and we trust in Him completely for all things. ...We know His purpose will stand!

"No one is like you, O LORD;
you are great,
and your name is mighty in power."

Jeremiah 10:6

PRAISE THE LORD ALL THE EARTH! :)

I'm praying about the biopsy, Taylor! I'm also praying for you and your sisters. I know how tough it is having to stay home alone all day long. Oh, and I'm praying for your mom too! I guess I should just say... I'm praying for "y'all." :) Love you!!

P.S. - I love the picture. Silhouettes are so neat! :)

P.S.S. - I just got a letter in the mail for you this morning. I'm afraid it's pretty short, but at least it's a letter. ;)

We're all praying Taylor! =) You're right, God does have a purpose for all of this. Just keep trusting in Him. =D It never fails! =D

Taylor, God IS in control over all! It sounds like y'all are trusting Him, and that is awesome! I don't know how some people can go through things like this without God in their lives, and not knowing where they are going. Your Dad, and your entire family are in my prayers. God bless you, sister! Love in Christ, Buttercup

I am so sorry! I just went and read your last 5 or so posts, this was my fisrt chance since getting back from WA.
I have kept your dad in my prayers, but I will now do so even more diligently! This must be really hard for you guys!
I didnt blog about it, but 2 months ago we had a scare with my mom and I ended up calling 911. it was only a REALLy bad migrane, but the symptoms were more like a stroke or something, so it was pretty scary! So I have just a tiny glimpse of how you must feel.
I know my family is and will be praying for your family as well~
May the LORD bless you and your family!
Love from your friend in SD,
~Alli
