Treasure Update

Hey all. Thanks so much for your prayers and messages concerning Treasure. She is doing well and is an amazing little lady. She sounds like she has 40 pounds of cotton stuck up her nose but she is doing great. She had a bit of a hard time this morning when she came out of the anasthesia, she was really upset. She cried for a while and complained about her throat hurting but she slowly got better as the day has progressed. Thanks again!!

Please pray with us for Treasure tonight and especially in the morning. She will have her adenoids removed in the morning around 7:20. It is a quick procedure, normally about 20 minutes but the worst part is they have to put her to sleep and stick a tube down her throat for breathing. We know that God has her in His hand and we trust in His sovereignty. Please remember her tomorrow or tonight when you go to our Father.

Jas 5:16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

Special Day by Dad

15 Years ago God gave me a special gift through my best friend on the right; the gift was my other best friend on the left.
Hunter Judson Lee Hardwick turned 15 years old today at 9:59AM. 15 years ago Joli delivered this very special young man at Grand Strand General Hospital. I was 23 at the time and Joli was 20 and I don't think either one of us really knew what our Creator was giving to us.
He was perfectly handsome, even with his very cone shaped head and forcep marks. He made his little mom go through the ringer. When she started with him she was 95 pounds and when he was born she was 150. She got bells palsy, choleostasis of pregnancy and had to go on bed rest for a while. Through all that though, she persevered to deliver a very special man.
Hunter is so very thoughtful and kind. Yes he can be mean some times but honestly it is not often. Hunter prayed to Jesus when he was about 6 years old to be his savior. He was baptized at Hyde Park Baptist Church shortly thereafter. While I am not sure whether he was saved at that point, I know that God has been changing this young man into someone who loves His Son Jesus. I pray that he would continue to yield his life to the Lord and be led willingly to where God wants to take him. I know God has a special purpose for his life.
Another thing that I am so thankful for and something that Joli has written, is that he actually likes to be with me. Maybe he does because I really like to be with him. One day he will be gone and I will miss him, until that day arrives though, I will cherish every day and every birthday that I have with him.
Thank you Lord for my son! Thank you Joli for giving me such a special young man and being an awesome mother to him! Thank you Hunter for being a treasured friend to me.
I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New Year

New Year
Well we all woke up this morning. It felt the same as yesterday but someone told me it was a new year :0) Well I knew that it is 2010 and while it may not feel that different I am a day older and we are embarking as a family on a great task. We are going to be reading through the Robert Murry M'Cheyne bible reading program. My friend Brodie says that there are no "snow" days with this because it is rigorous and you don't get behind with the intentions to catch up. Today's reading was from Ezra 1 and Acts 1 in our quiet time and the family reading time is from Genesis 1 and Matthew 1. It progresses this way through the entire year where you read through the old testament once over the course of the year and the new testament and psalms twice. An additional thing that we are doing is we are going to follow Bethlehem Baptist Churches Fighter verses. They have 5 sets of fighter verses where they memorize a verse or passage every week as a church. This years set is E and they will memorize a verse out of Daniel this week and next week start memorizing the WHOLE sermon on the mount from Matthew 5-7. I do not write any of this to boast about what we are doing. Remember it is only January 1. I write this so that you will remember us in prayer as we commit as a family to read through the bible together this year and hide God's word in our heart. We hope that you have a happy new year and that your hearts would be shaped by the potter.

This is something I did last night but could not get to copy over to this blog. Have a great New Year and may the Lord fill you with His Spirit and His love.
