Clinging to this promise:

God is not through with me yet ~ that my trials will bring me closer to Him.

I frequently feel so alone and afraid during this journey ~ angry with the whole thing, it's painfully clear that I am just a name on a sheet of paper to some; doctors, the insurance company, etc. ~ not a human with a life. And yet I still believe that all of this is happening to me and my family for a reason. It may not be the way I would have chosen but I believe time will reveal happiness once again.

I'm so heartbroken for you Katie! I want you to know that I am constantly amazed by you and your strength! You are a Godly woman that I look up to so much. My prayer for you today is that He would give you some clarity to the path you are walking. He is faithful to His promises!

You are an inspiration! Even before February 29, you inspired me! Keep your faith, and when you feel alone know that you have many friends thinking of you at that very moment! You are walking through the fire, but keep your head up for that moment when all your dreams come true! Love you!

I was just told of your story today and I can tell you without a doubt that God is not done with you yet. You are an example to so many with your unwavering faith. Keep fighting the good fight, Katie. People all over are praying for and fighting right along with you.

I pray that God gives you comfort and peace as you endure this season.

Please just take one day at a time, I am still always praying for you.

Keep your faith alive, and stay hopeful through the strength of God that everything will be alright.

Just one day at a time.

Katie,

We went to a ballet last night that Maya's ballet school performed. It was called You Are Special (book by Max Lucado) and it is going on at the Knickerbocker for the next 3 nights. It was a story about a toymaker who made many toys. Most of these toys were competing against each other for more stars (signs of doing good things) and less dots (they got these if they messed up). But one toy, a princess ballerina...you know Maya loved that...had realized that stars and dots didn't matter, only the love of the precious toymaker who had made them. The final song was "He knows my Name" and once again I found my eyes brimming with tears. It was such an amazing picture of God's love for us, even when we feel we are nothing more than a number here on earth. You are special, Katie, and no one knows that better than your Heavenly Father. I'm praying Psalm 42 for you today. In His hands and at His feet, Amy

Robb and Katie, I had a few quiet moments and I felt I had to leave a message to let you know that Brandon and I are constantly keeping you and Robb in our prayers. I found your blog, from my friend Robyn's blog site, and I have to tell you how beautiful it is! God is so good and He has surely blessed you in many ways! We will still remember you in our prayers that God will continue to give you comfort and healing through this difficult time.
