Please Pray for us...

Hey everybody. We would love your prayers for our family. Many of you know that Steph got very sick 2 years ago and was misdiagnosed for about 7 months. We finally figured out that it was Lyme Disease and because it was untreated has become very problematic and difficult to treat. She was much better during pregnancy as God protected her and the baby. After Lake was almost a month old, all the symptoms came back and we are once again dealing with this stupid illness. We are going to one of the best doctors in the states for treatment. Please pray for wisdom for the doctor(s), insurance compliance, use of the right antibiotics and for safety as we will be traveling so much over the next few months. This has been the hardest thing our young family has gone through, but we are still blessed beyond measure and always will be. Thank you for your prayers.

"Lord you have blessed my family, so it will always be blessed."

1 Chronicles 17:27

"I have made you and I will carry you. I will sustain you and I will rescue you."

Is. 46:4

Why Does God Allow Suffering?

My grandmother used to make quilts. As a little boy, I couldn’t figure out by looking at the underside what the quilt would look like without looking on the top side to see the pattern that she was making. Sometimes when I board an airplane there are dark clouds and it is raining. But in a few minutes the plane is above the clouds and the sun is shining. I can assure you that above the clouds in your life the sun is shining. God is still there despite any tragedy that you may be experiencing.

Our little family loves you and we will pray with tons of confidence that this will be the decision that ends the madness. I am PROUD of you, and for going forward with this wild new chapter in your life. I adore you...each. We remain in prayer for you all.

Hi,
I'm Stephanie and I'm here via Angela's blog at Refresh My Soul. She had mentioned to me about a month ago that you were going through this. Know that I'm praying that you would feel God's presence more than ever before. I'm sure he must trust you quite a bit to allow you to go through this time. He has big plans for you both. Lean in close to your Abba Daddy, he loves you so much.

Tim & Steph,
I happened across your blog today and was sad to hear of the reoccurance. Juwana and I think of you often and talk about our time with you. I'm sorry we've not kept in contact like we had hoped. Our church is doing well and I've quit selling cars. I'm the safety director for an oilfield drilling company now and have been doing this for about 3 months. Juwana is still doing her MK and helping the lady with CP. We enjoy the pictures of your family and the updates. We will keep you in our prayers and out thoughts. I'm sure your strength and faith has been an encouragement to many.

Hey Tim and Steph,

I had no idea IT had come back. Please let me know if you need help with the boys. I'll be praying for quick recovery.
