Abe


Some of you know this little guy. Isn't he a treasure? Abe came home from Ethiopia, his birth country, in August. He and his family, the Alexanders, are very dear to our hearts. They need our prayers now. It would seem that Abe suffered several strokes while he was in his birth mother's womb that resulted in neurological damage.

Please, join me in praying for sweet Abe and for Moody, Emily, Wick, Hill, Avery, and Issy, too. The Lord calls us to pray for big things, hard things, real live miracles.

Moody and Em, we love you and we're praying.

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts higher than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9

"Oh Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me."
Psalm 30:2

"But Jesus hearing this answered him,
'Do not fear, only believe, and she will be well.'" Luke 8:50

Found your blog from Em's. I feel like I know so many in the blog world from hearing her talk about you guys and what a blessing you are in their lives. I love that so many are pulling together for precious Abe!

PS- The second picture is one from my wedding. Stephanie Davis was my wedding photographer and all the Alexanders except for Moody and Abers were standing in the wedding. (which explains the tuxes and cute dresses)

I follow this family's blog and feel like I know them (well, know of them, I suppose) and my heart breaks for what they are going through. I am so thankful that our God is sovereign even in situations we may not understand...and will definitely be praying extra hard for this sweet family over these coming days. Thanks so much for posting this.
