Thank you to all the blog readers!

I have so amazed at the comments, words of encouragement, helpful thoughts and reassurance of prayer that has flooded in. I feel so blessed! I know Ryan reads my blog and the comments…he will be blessed too!

I’m breathing a little deeper today…thankful for all I have!

Thank you for your thoughts on the Morrisons. I check their site at least three times a day hoping for the best. I was in tears immediately when I read about sweet Lucia. I honestly don’t know how they can stand it. Thank God they know Him. He is the only one that can possibly comfort them. Please send them my love and prayers, even though we will probably never meet this side of heaven. May God keep them, hold, love them, and comfort them through this trial. They are never alone. Death has been swallowed up in Victory.

Dearest Noemi, Matt, Adriah, Ryan, Brianna and little Sylas,

Our hearts go out to you during this time. I am moved by all that is shared through your blog, you are touching so many people with your story, and the fruits will be known for years to come.

I shared with Noemi that grief is different for all. I know from experience of losing someone, or for this matter and my own several people in such a short period, that you don’t know how to cope. Just to breathe sometimes seems like a chore.

There may be many tears, screams of frustration, laughter for no reason, and silence. These and much more are different emotions and stages you will go through in the next several years. You read right I said several years.

When I sat by my moms beside and watched her drift off into our heavenly Father’s arms this was the hardest thing I ever had to go through, and I didn’t know what to do. I wailed like a baby at that moment, then there was silence. I constantly went to the Lord day after day knowing that He was going to take care of me and help me with each passing day. I had peace and I was content in His presence, but there was silence. It took many months, and even a year or two as life adjusted for me to realize his ultimate plan. Now I can see that He has given me divine appointments to share with others. I can only share my heart, I don’t have any scripture memorized to share with you.

A couple things I would like to be passed onto for me Noemi:

Adriah: I know you are so small and yet your heart is touched by all of this around you. Rest assure that you are a shinking light, God is using you and your kindered heart for your Mommy and Daddy, and your friends. Wrap your arms around them and they know that love is poored out through you by our Father.

Matt: Just being there for your wife, no words can express what is going on around you. I know you are a pastor and you have gone through things before, but talking from the other side of things. Just being there to wipe a tear, to be held, to just being there. This is what is needed.

Ryan and Brianna: Tears swell up at the thought of what you are going through, but knowing that you are in our Heavenly Father’s Arms, He will guide your every step, days might seem like minutes, or minutes like days, but He knows the plans before we know them. Rest assured, He has you in His arms and He sees your tears and your heart cries for understanding. We are praying along with you.

Sylas: You are a ray of sun shine, how little you are but what a difference you are making in this world! We pray for strength as you grow and face the challenges before you. You are a fighter and I declare this in the name of the Lord!

Noemi: Stand strong, but don’t be afraid of how to be there for your friends. They know you are hurting right along with them, they can see your heart and you can see theres. Take one moment at a time, all will come together and you all will be strengthened in the Lord for His glory!!

People are praying all over the world!

Love in Prayers

Thank you for giving us the updates on the Morrison’s. I continue to pray for them and for baby Sylas, can you give us any update on his condition?

Feeling out of control..I think each of us as mothers, wives, sisters, friends etc. get the feeling like we just don’t know how to do it any more….as of mother of 4 I get those days and like someone else said those are the days you have a coffee date with God and recollect yourself.

I pray for you and for Brianna, Ryan and baby Sylas!

Noemi, Ryan & Brianna, I think of you all and pray for you daily.

Last week I was at camp with 3rd and 4th grade children and we did a play about Shadrach, Meshach, and Abendego. I though of you, Ryan & Brianna standing up to the doctors who, no doubt, encouraged you to do selective reduction on your precious babies. When Shadrach, Meshach, and Abendego were told by the king to worship his image, or be thrown into the furnace, they told him respectfully, that they knew their God was bigger than the king, and that he could save them, But Even if He Doesn’t, they would still serve him.

You see, my husband Tim and I are 23, and I try to put myself into your shoes, sitting there with the pro-reduction doctor, and I see myself and my husband saying something like, “doctor, I understand what you’re saying, but our God can save our children, but Even if He Doesn’t, we will still serve him.”

So Ryan, Brianna, and Noemi, Matt, Adriah, and all the others who are no doubt supporting you daily, I pray for you to be faithful, and to know that God’s plan is so much bigger than our situation. I can’t even imagine going through the situation you’re living right now. But know that you are being constantly held up in prayer, and loved from all over the world.

In the dust of His feet

Thank you so much for your updates on the Morrisons, and for your daily blogs and pictures, as I so look forward to reading or seeing something new on your site daily.

What I can hardly stand to see is poor news about the babies! I know how very hard it is for me and everyone else to take, I have no idea how Ryan, Brianna, Matt and yourself can make it through a day! I am so thankful for your faith, and pray that it only continues to strengthen, as no one but our wonderful Heavenly Father could get you through such a tragedy as this.
I hope you know that MANY people are praying for you daily, and our hearts go out to you during your time of grief. I will pray for the Lord the touch baby Sylas so he may have the strength he needs to get stronger which each passing day.

God Bless Always,

Jeanette & Family

Hi Noemi,

I have been so inspired not only by your work, but your heart as well! I too have been following the story of the Morrison family via your website and this morning as I was catching up on all the blogs all I could think of was a simple song that was written years ago by a ‘hungry’ woman wanting more of Jesus….

At the feet of Jesus
Is where I want to be
To feel Your Holy Spirit
Breathe His life in me

Laying down my burdens
And casting all my cares
Resting in Your presence
Knowing You are there!

There is no other place I would rather be! It’s my prayer for you and your family and Ryan and his family!
