God is Amazing!

This is unbelievable! (OK, it is believable because it happened) God must be reading this blog. Within 2 minutes of sending the last post, I was paged and notified that an ICU room had just become available.

Why am I surprised, God is so good! He knows what we need before we ask.

Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow!! I am rejoicing with you that the surgery and post-op time have gone so well, and now that Kate has an ICU room. I have prayed for each of you throughout the entire day and will continue to lift you up. Your boys are much in my prayers, knowing they are missing you at home. I'm praying that God will meet their needs in ways that are beyond what we can even expect or imagine. He is carrying you all through each moment of this, and He will not let you down or disappoint you. How great is that?!!
It is so cool to feel so connected to the body of believers who are supporting you!
THANK YOU for allowing us to walk this part of the journey with you. It is a privilege.

To Carter, Cole, and Stuart,
This is Cooper and I am 6 years old. I hope your mom gets better. I had some help from my mom because I'm still learning how to read and write. I am praying for you!
Love, Cooper Gibbs

What great news...we are rejoicing with you! God woke me around 4 this morning to pray for you and I have been lifting you before our mighty Father all day. How great it is to be able to come before the maker of heaven and earth...to pour out our hearts before Him...and know that He hears our prayers and know that He is holding you in His loving hands!

Praising God with you,
Mark and Nancy

Kate it was so good to see you just a couple of weeks ago. You mentioned that you had some things going on in your life, but I had no idea about this new chapter. I just found out today. My heart became so burdened for you and I have been praying for you all day. I am so thankful for the successful surgery and will continue to pray for your recovery.
May you continue to feel the arms of The Almighty carrying you through.
"Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. I cling to you; your right hand upholds me." Psalm 63: 7-8

Praying with you,

Praying that ALL of your famiy will rest in God's perfect peace tonight. You guys have been on my mind (Sarah's and Macy's too) all day. Macy especially because she likes your last name. "Snodgrass?! That's soo silly mom!? Sarah enjoyed making something special for you today at school. I was stunned at dinner as she prayed - after asking God to bless our meal she prayed for your surgery and for your "boys". It was unprompted and I am so thankful again of God's goodness. He is so faithful! I pray that He continues to make Himself known to your children and that He will continue to keep you and Dave in His perfect peace.

Praising God with you and pressing on in prayer as you begin the healing process- Kate, rest in Him and Dave too! Praying for your boys and helpers too!

Dave and Kate,
We are praising the Lord that the surgery and post op period are over!!! Because it is our daytime on this side of the world, you are covered in our prayers that your sleep is restful and healing. I often remind my kids that Psalms tells us that God is blessing us even as we sleep. That is our prayer for your family tonight- that each one of you is comforted and given perfect, restful peace. We continue to lift you up to our "Great High Priest" who lives to make intercession for us.
"Therefore, let us draw near to with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in the time of need" Heb 4:12
"When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches. For you have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy. My soul clings to you; Your right hand upholds me.
Although we are far away, you are close to our hearts.
Much love, Dan and Missy Long in Taiwan

Dave and Kate,
I've just read through this whole blog, and it feels like a reunion! It makes me think of heaven and how the prayers of the saints are kept together in golden bowls held by the elders before the throne. (Rev. 5:8) Thanks for setting this up and allowing us to follow along and add our prayers to one of the golden bowls along with yours.

Thank you, Lord, for walking through today with Your hand on Kate and Dr. Forget. Thank you for Dave's peace and for the empty ICU bed. Fill their hearts with the knowledge that you are with them ALWAYS, even until the end of the age.

We love you guys and will be continually following along and lifting you up(in case your arms have those weak moments that Laura B talked about - I loved that post!).

Kate, Dave, and boys,
I just found out today about your tumor and surgery. I have been in prayer for you and am rejoicing to hear the good news that the surgery went well and you have your private room in which to recover. We miss you so much over here at E. Free. Just seems like yesterday that I had Carter and then Cole in the 3 year old class on Tuesday mornings. May God's grace, mercy and peace fill you and surround you. In His loving and watchful care, Marijo Blair

O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord. You hem me in- behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from you Spirit? Where can I flee from you presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will hold me fast.
Psalm 139:1-10

God got me out of bed so that I could share this with you. No one but God could get me up at this hour! And s I'm thinking of you and praying for you, I have an image in my mind of Jesus standing in your room, his hand on your head. I'm praying that you begin this new day with joy in your hearts! What an awesome God we have!
