Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart

Amazed

Amazed at my God. Daily. His presence in my everyday life. My last post was written before the first two comments were left on this mornings early post. I wrote my last post about "A little something I have learned" for another family who is struggling with other's opinions about the way they have cared for their children. Amazed is all I can say when I think how He already knew what would thrown at me and how He had been preparing my heart in advance. As I was typing my post and composing it "anonymous" was reading and typing their comments. My post began at 2:30, but I did not finish due to numerous phone calls until after 3:00 and then I turned off my computer and went back outside. Their comments were posted at 3:19 and 3:31. Amazing. Don't tell me He isn't real because I KNOW that He is.

I really feel sorry for those posters. What gets me is that they hide behind "anonymous". Pretty sad to me!

God is good and knows everyone's heart! We love you Adams family and are praying for you guys..........still!

The devil is very real, and is used by people far more often than we would like to think. But Praise Be To God that indeed, "greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world". I'm so thankful that God in His wisdom chose you to be Ashley's mommy. You have been such a blessing to me and many others as a result of following the leading of God in Ashley's care. I couldn't (and don't care to) imagine what life would be like if Ashley weren't here to ispire us to keep fighting and give God the glory for all the marvelous things that He does, incuding giving us the technology and dedicated medical community that make organ transplants a miraculous possibility. You are an incredible mother to all of your children. They are so blessed to have you AND your husband for parents. There is really only one opinion that truly matters and that's God's. He is the Judge, and when we meddle with that we tread on very dangerous ground.

Trish--like I wrote in my last comment, you never cease to amaze me. God knew exactly what was going to happen and I think you handled this quite well. The Holy Spirit is so evident in your life and how He works in you daily through Ashley's story. And like Marva said, I feel sorry for those posters too. They must be sad, miserable people! And I also agree with Sherri, the devil is very real and he will do anything in his power to discourage, cause chaos, make people doubt their decisions, etc. But we know God is much GREATER than that wicked one and God always prevails in our lives if we allow Him too! I believe God gave man the mind to come up with medical advances and the things and procedures of today. He gave man the ability to produce medicine. I am a walking, talking person today because if I didn't have my medicine, I wouldn't be and I would be messed up in more ways than one.

You and Dave were hand-picked by God to be the parents of your three kids. I believe you and Dave are wonderful and in tune with God and have their best interests at heart.

I wish I could hug you and love on you! I love your family and I am still praying for your Ashley and your other family members.

Take care,

Shari
