Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart

Remembering...Lest we Forget




Remembering where we were a year ago at this hour. She was so tiny and so close to leaving us. God did and still does amazing things in her life and I sit in this room with my tiny gherkin remembering just how far she has come. Amazing.

I just watched your slide show, and my heart aches for what you must have gone through. I haven't yet read your posts to see what your precious daughter is facing, but judging by the pictures you must have had some trying times. My prayers are with you!

Amazing. I remember that night (and morning)so clearly! 365 days are really not that many. It is amazing to think of all the life Ashley's packed into them. And all of the growth she has achieved. I love her snow white eyes the best.

Thank You, Dear Lord for the miracle of transplanted organs. Thank You, for the past 12 months you have given little Ashley.
Thank You for the brave woman who lost her precious child yet gave the gift of life to Ashley. For that we are eternally grateful and we join with Trish and David and their family as they have reflected back on that day, as we see close up in this slide show, the reality of it all.
May Jesus be glorified in all of this and all of what is yet to come. We honor You in Jesus name~~ Amen.
Sleep well~~Much love~~Janiece

Prayers for sweet Ashley will be going up right now, as I head off to bed. Prayers for her and her incredible Momma and loving family too.
Blessings,

Trish! Here you are in the midst of a hard time and instead of wallowing in it and worrying about things you're celebrating all the good God has done! This is just so you and one of the many reasons that you're such an inspiration to me! Congratulations on the one-year anniversary of Ashley's transplant. I know this isn't the way you planned to spend it but I know God is using this very moment for His glory...and I thank you for being a willing vessel for Him. I absolutely LOVED the picture of Ashley that you posted last night in her "classic Ashley" pose. She's such a beautiful baby and my prayers for all of you continue, with much love.

Trish,
My eyes were full of tears seeing those pictures. I didn't realize that Ashley had her transplant only four days before Davian. She really has put up a hard fight. Tomorrow will be seven months since I lost my handsome litter stinker. I miss him more than words can describe, but if God can give me the strength to cope with his loss, I know he can give you the strength to cope with the setbacks Ashley is facing. She is there with you. She is alive and growing up to be a beutiful little girl. I wish I could see what Davian would look like right now, but I have to wait untill God reunites me with him. In the meantime, I pray for both of us. Continue being the wonderful mom you are being, and give Ashley a big hug and kiss for me. Take care.

Do you know the song...."How great is our God?...." I began singing that as I watched that slide show..... He is GREAT....He is AMAZING.....HE IS ABLE.....HE CAN DO ALL THINGS!! (= Praises to HIM how far she has come....even in the midst of this trial being back in Omaha.... HE IS ever so present there with you. Trish....Dave....sweet Adam's family....you have a wonderful testimony.

Praying for your family...what precious pictures. They made me smile and cry and smile some more. All the while, I prayed.

Your husband's picture looks familiar. I think it's interesting...we probably have sat in the same restaurant or something over the years. Chris and I are Marshall grads (class of '88 and '89). We moved to Colorado in Fall 2005 and before that were members of Central Baptist in Marshall. So we may have even worshipped together!

All that is really about nothing.

We will continue to pray.
Love,
Holly Smith
