Group prayer at CCS

Covenant Christian School
a time of corporate prayer on Tuesday at 8:25

It would be great if you can come. I am not sure of the Tuesday schedule if Dave and I will be able to stay. The neurosurgeons office this morning (Monday) will be giving me more info about specific details ie: blood work and stuff. BE SURE TO VOTE on Tuesday as well. : )

As the day is drawing near, I am preparing.
My mom, Soccer Gram along with my younger sister, Aunt Dee Dee will be tag teaming on the homefront care. Many thanks to them for holding up the fort. My heart was filled with delight as I read my sisters comment. (She called herself Dee Dee cuz my youngest says it that way). It was good to hear what all she wrote as she knows (without even talking to me) her older sister is furioiusly writing out all the boys needs, schedules, emergency info, likes, dislikes, funny things they do, etc. The list goes on. The white binder will be on the counter for any caregiver that comes.

I will write more later hopefully during my son's nap at noon.
Thanks again for your compassion and love. Do keep the emails, comments and phone calls coming. I may not be able to respond to all but I am truly encouraged by them.
much love - Kate

Good morning Kate! Just wanted you to know that our family is in constant prayer for you, Dave, Carter, Cole & Stuart! You were the first thing on my mind this morning and I will continue to lift all of you up! I mentioned you to my Mom as well - she said you are such a dear customer of LRM and plans to pass the word on to them this a.m. as well, if that's ok. Above all, know that you are all in God's hands right now.....and that is the best place to be. Isn't it such a comfort to know that HE is in control and we aren't? I pray that he will meet and exceed all the needs of each member of your family today. You are all truly safe in His hands!

Kate, Dave and Family,
We are praying for a smooth surgery, quick recovery, good results, and your peace of heart and mind. Through our Libby we know that these times show us such a beautiful side of God's grace, love and provision. We know that He promises hardships but, more importantly, he promises His powerful love, grace and VICTORY.

We wish you didn't have this before you but, given that you do, we confidently await the blessings that will come through it: the Faith that will grow, those that will meet Christ through you, the victories that will be declared in the name of Christ, and blessings that we cannot even anticipate.

Much Love and Prayers,
The Packwoods

Kate,

We have been out of town so am just now reading your blog. Shirley Keitel did call and ask if I had heard. I had not had a chance to read everything. After I got off the phone, with her I went to God. While I was lifting you up, He reminded me that as much as I and your family love you, He loves you even more. I know you know that, but I also know that during times like this, it doesn't always seem like it. I'm praying for you and will continue to life you up.

Dear Kate,
Cole's First Grade class wants you to know how very much they love you, and were discussing ways to show that to you (and Cole).This morning, as we discussed what was happening, little hearts were stirred and they were so comforted to remind each other that God is in charge! We will be praying for you and your family each step of the way! Love, Diane Abeln

Kate and Dave,
I just heard about your situation and am writing to say that Lynn and I are standing with you and your family in prayer and our hearts are so heavy for you as you face this "mountain." Through my tears I was also smiling as I read of all your detailed preparations and I remembered once again how amazingly gifted you are and how much I love you. My mom had a brain tumor many years ago and while I was in the waiting room waiting for her to have surgery and in many other "waiting rooms" since then, I have found Psalm 91 to be the greatest encouragement... I will claim that Psalm and call on the name of the God who heals to heal you, protect you, comfort you and be your refuge and fortress today and each day going forward. I am blessed today to reflect on the amazing "Partners" family that still exists and am in awe of God's provision of these amazing "hand holders" in a time such as this. I will hope to see you tomorrow morning at the prayer meeting, but wanted to send my love and xoxoxxo today. Remember, you are a daughter of the King of the Universe. He is FOR you. NOTHING can thwart HIS plans.

I hope that all went well this morning at your doctors visit. Our family will be in prayer for you all during this time and we'll gladly pitch in to help.

The song "Praise You In The Storm" fills my head as I sit and type this now. Because of the trial before you, because it is raining, because you are praising Him even in the midst of your emotions. And also because of the scripture verse within the song....I lift my eyes unto the hills - where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth."
Psalm 121:1&2

Your help is so graciously and completely coming from Him, displayed through the body of Christ.

Much love,
Tabatha Baker

Kate, Dave, and Boys,
My family is praying for the details of this surgery and for your hearts. I praise God for the peace Dave told you that he has for this situation, and for the email from your friend about Aaron and Hur holding up the arms of Moses. What a tender picture of the body of believers. You are on my mind and in my heart each day and will continue to come before God's throne with your needs. I would love to help, thank you for posting contact numbers for those organizing your volunteers!

Hey sister, the people at Kaldi's Kirkwood send their thoughts and prayers your way, aka their sending "a shout out" to you. Nathan G, my friend from Covenant, offered to clean my bathroom. I told him my brain was fine; I don't think he believed me.

Since hearing of your condition, I've had many co-workers and friends share success stories of their loved ones who have had brain surgery and tumor removal. It seems that everyone knows someone who not only has survived such a surgery but continues to live a normal, healthy life.

"Illuminated By The Light Of Kate"

I've only met you three times, in Bible Study, but this is what I want you to know; I awoke this morning heavily burdeaoned to pray for you, again. Philipians 2:15 came to me, " . . . Shine like a star in the universe as you bring forth the Word of life . . . " and then, in the light of Kate Snodgrass, my list of woes were very clearly, just my complaints. (Philipians 2:14)

As I am going through my day I cannot help but think of you and your family and again, God is using Kate's light,like a laser beam, to etch truth's onto my own heart.

Brilliantly Kate's light is shining as it draws family, friends, and other believers together, " . . . making increase in the body unto the edifying of itself in love" Ephesians 4:16

How many lives touched . . . . how many hearts changed . . . these are the tings of eternal measure. Shine on Kate Snodgrass, "like a star in the Universe"

Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed,for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him."
Lamentaions 3:22-24
Kate and family- In my prayers for you today, I have prayed these verses over your family. Rest in the Lord today, knowing that you are all lifted up in prayer- Praying for your peace tomorrow and for the surgeon's hands- and of course for YOU! We love you Kate, and will intercede faithfully as the Lord leads us- Love in Him, Jen and Bill Peskorse

Dear Daughter
LEANING ON THE EVERLASTING ARMS
What have I to dread, what have I to fear, Leaning on the everlasting arms? I have blessed peace with my Lord so near, Leaning on the ever lasting arms.
Leaning, leaning, Safe and secure from all alarms; Leaning, leaning, Leaning on the ever lasting arms.
Do you remember when you were nine years old and you called me collect from Turkey Hill Ranch Bible camp to read from 1 John 1:9,10. "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purity us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives. You and George Farber were sitting under a tree outside chapel when you accepted Christ. Do you remember that summer day? I do.
I have every confidence that God holds you in the safety of his care now and for eternity.
Love from your mother and kisses at 4:10 Tuesday.

Kate and Family,
Just want you all to know how much we are praying for you and trusting the Lord to give you strength, hope, endurance and healing. Kate you have encouraged me as you write about your sweet boys and the hope you find in the Lord. "Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, 'The Lord is my protion; therefore I will wait for Him.'" Lam. 3:22-24
Love to your family,
Barth, Catherine and Sabrina

Kate,
I Love that family picture! :)
I have been so encouraged as I see how many this blog has reached...the many, many prayers that are being lifted up to the throne is an amazing thought. Jason and I are praying fervently for you and Dave and each of your sons by name. We love you!
