Memorial Box Monday - Georgia's Warriors

    This morning my heart feels weary. I am back at home alone with the kids and it feels a bit like the movie 'Groundhog's Day'...the monitor sits on the counter, I wait and watch and worry. But...God has been showing up in MIGHTY ways. I do not understand this storm or why we need to walk through such extreme uncertainty that could take our daughter's life at any moment, or not.  You can read about her story more here. What I do know is that God is reaching down and showing us that He is right here.
       I just have to share what God did last week! I am still stunned by it and clinging to the promise that God is mobilizing people to pray for my baby girl.
     On Friday a woman named Susan wrote this to me after reading about Georgia on Linny's blog about prayer requests:
Yesterday, an amazing thing happened ~ the night before, I felt impressed to fast for Georgia, and did so all day yesterday. Friends of mine were driving me to New Orleans airport, and we stopped by Mc Donalds as they wanted something to eat, I declined letting them know that I was fasting. Just prior to Mc Donalds, one of them persisted the reason for my fasting, I explained it was for Georgia and explained a bit about her situation (without bringing up her name).

Arriving in McDonalds, both friends went to order food, while I sat and waited, looking out the window. Then something got my eyes widening in surprise In front of me was a road sign, "Georgia"...

When my friends came to join me at the table, I said to one of them, "remember the reason for me fasting? for a little girl?" She said "yes", I said, "what does this road sign say?" She said, "Georgia" I said, "that's her name!" and she was stunned too... she is a strong christian and has been relying on the Lord (YHWH) for guidance as well.

And what's more... I was carrying with me a backpack the printout of your Memorial Box Monday story, I took it and showed it to my friends, and gave it to them.

   Isn't that amazing?????

It goes on...

She emailed me this today

I wanted to tell you another thing that happened today, I was with a friend, Chuck, we drove to Sacramento, California, to catch a ferry to visit San Francisco for the day, and we were hurrying to catch the ferry, Chuck parked at this car parking lot, and we were standing in the line waiting to buy our tickets, and the place where we were standing, the road sign showed Georgia as well! I have attached a photo of it, so I told Chuck all about it, and we both prayed for your daughter, for wisdom and comfort for you, and wisdom for doctors. Chuck was telling me that there is power when there is two or more people praying together, so I think YHWH (the Lord) wanted me to pray with Chuck for Georgia.

I just stand amazed that the Lord would draw people to pray for our Georgia, to remind them so faithfully...

He also knew that I needed this so much to keep going another day.

Thank you again for your prayers and comments we are still watching and monitoring Georgia's heart. We have recorded 10 'episodes' so far but have not heard anything...
Please keep praying!

Still praying for Georgia, and I pray that you will continue to feel God's presence in such tangible ways!

His eye is on the sparrow, and let's face it, Georgia is waaaay cuter than a sparrow.

Praying for Georgia and her family. I am so sorry you have to go through this, but I am so glad that if you have to go through with it that you can feel yourselves being wrapped in prayer.

God I pray a special prayer for Georgia and her family. Thank you so much for protecting her. Thank you also for the wonderful prayer warriors that are sending up prayers for Georgia. We know you are the master healer and no job is too big for you to handle. God I pray for your continued blessing.In your sweet name I pray, Amen.

Hmmm... this comment refused to post the first time. I'll try again.
Good morning. I just clicked over from Linny's blog. Thank you for sharing your needs and God's amazing care for your family. I will continue to pray for Georgia.
I am a pediatrician in Kentucky. I know first hand how papers can get "lost" in a doctor's office. If you haven't heard anything about the results from her episodes I would encourage you to call their office. It isn't being too pushy to make sure they are getting the information they need to help Georgia.
If there is anything I can help you with please contact me. I will continue to pray for Georgia's health and safety and for wisdom for her doctors.
