HAPPY ONE WEEK BIRTHDAY NOEL!!
It’s been a WEEK!!! This precious little girl who the doctors didn’t think would make a few hours, has now been with us for a WEEK! 🙂 2,300km away from me, there is a party going on for Noel. I was hoping that they’d post a picture of Noel with cake on her face but no such luck. (Noel, you’re Auntie Sarah would have let you have some!) Just teasing guys!!
Noel is doing pretty good. Filling out a lot! She’s now at 3lb 6 oz. The nurse paid Noel a visit and checked all her vitals. Noels heartbeat and respiration are all good! God is so good! Each day is a gift from the Lord and we’ll take each and every one of them!
Look at how pretty she is. Because of the care required for her, her family is with her 24/7. They take shifts throughout the night so that someone is with her all the time. Alex is with her most of the time and Caleb is there as much as he can be. Unfortunately, his time has been limited with her due to the financial strain of the testing and the care that Noel needs and he’s back to work. This is terribly tough for them since they’ve been told that at any time, Noel could pass away. We are believing in a miracle, but just imagine having to leave your newborn baby girl with that on your mind.
We are so grateful that Noel is doing as well as she is. We give all praise and glory to the Lord! We are also so grateful for all the prayers that you have said for Noel. It’s awesome to see that this little girl has a mighty prayer army! You are to thank for that!
Prayer succeeds when all else fails. Prayer has won great victories and has rescued, with notable triumph, God’s saints when every other hope is gone. ~ E. M. Bounds
Prayer is not overcoming God’s reluctance, but laying hold of His willingness. ~ Variously attributed
Every great movement of God can be traced to a kneeling figure. ~ D. L. Moody
That’s why we covet your prayer so much. We know that God can move mightily and we know that He listens to His children! God is moving already. Not only in Noel’s continual health, but he is moving in the hearts of those who know her story.
Again, you have all overwhelmed me with your support for our dear friends. I am so glad to be able to share God’s work, and Noels story, with you all! Thank you for your continual prayers for Noel and for believing with us that God is going to keep working in Noels life!
Please feel free to comment here and I will make sure that Caleb and Alex get your messages! They are so touched by all your support!!
