The Incredible Power of Prayer

Ruby was the most like herself that she has been since 
she entered the hospital 2.5 weeks ago.

She was cooing and smiling....

and then right out of the blue Ruby asked if 
we could take some fun pictures and post them on 
her Sp*cial Ops hero big brother's Facebook wall
{she's heard so much about him and 
hears mommy pray for him all the time}


And so like how in the world could I resist her sweet request?


And if that wasn't enough, of course Ruby wanted big sister Abi to have a special note as well.  Ruby's heard so much fun stuff about her, and she love, love, loved meeting Autumn last week-end, so now Ruby really can't wait to snuggle with Abi as well.  

  
So I helped her make some signs and snap some pictures 
and then post them from my Facebook account.

We all can't wait till big hero brother is able to check his Facebook.  
{Been pretty difficult to have internet connection this 5th depl*yment. ugh.} 



Giving Thanks.
Rejoicing in the smiles.
Still praying. 
Testing tomorrow.

  12. How sweet! I'm so happy to see this little cutie smiling in the pictures! Tonight at the end of my orchestra/symphony rehearsal all the orchestra members were all praying for each other and about the missions trip to Chile we are about to take as a group in December, and then my orchestra started praying for Ruby and your family! It was so awesome! God is really hiding Ruby's life in the depths of His love. God is good!
