Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart

2/27/2007

Going No where

We have missed our opportunity. Ash has been working on a fever all night long and it has finally reached the point of no return. Her stool output has increased in the last few hours to more than 4 times the amount she put out the entire previous 24 hours. She has come down with something but we don't know what.

I don't have to tell you how disappointed I am, but at the same time I have prayed that only if it were His timing did I want to leave this hospital. Obviously He is telling us No this is not the right time. We always come so very close and then we are either stopped or we have to back up. I don't know why we can't seem to get out of this place, but for now we chase down whatever bug she has picked up and try to get through it.

Thank you for your prayers. I am afraid today will hold more disappointment than excitement.

Praying for sweet Ash....for the team to help her get over this unidentified bug. For God to protect her during this state of weakened immunity. For ..Trish....& Dave as you walk this long road to Texas. Praying God will open that door when the time is right. Thankful that He is in control & not us....for He knows....even when we don't understand....the reasons why ...now isn't the right time. (Hoping that it will be soon). Praying for His will & His timing.

The same God that raised Christ from the dead is the same one that holds Ashley in His hands. He is the same one that has brought her this far, caused her heart to keep beating when you feared it was over, the same one that brought her into your arms from the very beginning. He never changes, He never stops being Everything. How hard it must be to sit in that room and see discouragement and setbacks all around you. How easy it must be to set your eyes on the circumstances. We see this all imperfectly like a reflection in little Ashley's mirror but someday we will see perfectly, the whole picture, from beginning to end... Until then, know that God is good, He is able and He is working DESPITE what you see and hear and feel right now. He never changes.

I am praying that this will only be a small set back. That soon you will be able to leave the hospital, and that you will also be able to go home to Texas. Hope you have a blessed day! Love and hugs!

I strongly believe there is someone in that hospital that you are bringing to Christ. It is obviously happening very slowly, but everytime you are sooo close to leaving, you get pulled back in. God is using Ashley and somehow I think it is within that place !!! Praising God for being in Control and praying for that infection to disappear!
