wife. mom. adjunct professor. we homeschool. i'm a little bit OCD. i love math. bright colors and geometric designs make me drool. we live with a medical rarity, and Jesus saved his life. through that, Jesus is changing us. The american dream and status quo is overrated...and sometimes just plain wrong. our lives, our family, our careers, our faith are all now filtered through a new lens-- thank you Jesus. welcome to our crazy. feel free to take some of it with you, we have plenty to go around.
It's not the load that breaks you down; it's the way you carry it.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.-- Jesus Christ

scary day part 2

Ridge is now in ICU. He made the same grand entrance to ICU this time as last time- vomiting blood everywhere. This time was worse- so far, in about an hour, he's thrown up 4 big amts. of blood and clots. It is the worst thing I have had to watch as a mother, or as a person in general. No one should have to go through this or watch their child go through it. Pray for healing. Pray for our miracle.

Brandon and Alisha -- I've been praying for you all afternoon since Cindy sent the text. You are constantly in my thoughts and prayers, but even more so right now. I'm thankful for the good care you've received today and I hope he is more stable now. "Father God, we continue to pray for Ridge's healing, and we ask that You minister to Alisha, Brandon and the rest of the family throughout the night. Give them the assurance of Your presence that they need to sustain them and wrap them securely in Your love."
We love you.

We are continually praying for baby Ridge and mommy and daddy. We pray that God will give you the strength you need to make it through these incredibly tough times, the patience when things aren't going well, and the rest you need to be the parents Ridge needs you to be for him at this time. We pray that God will give Ridge the strength to make it through all the scary mishaps he is experiencing at this time. We know God is working in his life and is incontrol of everything going on. May God show His love and mercy to your family. Remember if you need anything, we are right down the road and can be there as soon as you need us. We love you guys so much.

Chris, Julie, Carsten, and Michael

A sister in The Lord, Christ Jesus of Nazareth, sent the prayer chain and request for prayer and lifting~ Father, Heavenly Father, Abba, this child Ridge, beautiful, wonderfully and fearfully made by Your Hands, in LOVE and Joy. WE know Your Word speaks of pestilences in the last days, we seek MERCY for this child of innocence. WE call The Blood of The Lamb of God at his every gate, wall and loins. Speaking to the enemy NOW in Jesus Name of Nazareth, by The Power invested within us, granted by Your Command, through The Power of The Holy Spirit in Might, Alone calling this named mld out that must bow to Jesus Christ of Nazareth. WE call all legions with Ridge to stop hemorraging by the power our tongue in healing faith in the authority given in Jesus Name of Nazareth. WE Command this stronghold to let Go immediately, spirit of death to GO in Jesus Name of Nazareth. This seed against this child of God is cauterized, crushed and annihilated. It's root is burned by The Fire of God. This assignment against Ridge is aborted NOW, and will not complete itself, we speak peace, be still and life abundanly. WE command this child loosed from the grips and manifestations of mld. WE proclaim this is His Cause, His Claim, His Case and VICTORY IS HIS, Elohim's, El Shadday, our Abba Father. We replace in the sending into the present NOW, all wounded areas within Ridge's gates, walls and loins, the healing balm of Gilead given by his Saviour and ours, to bring perfect comfort, where nothing is missing and nothing is broken. WE call his appetite well, his circulatory, nervous, lymphartic, immune, endocrine, muscular, reproductive, respiratory, skeletal, urinary and digestive system to line up with The Word of God as purposed before in his momma's womb. We call every every spirit of death, hell and the grave to come out in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. It can no longer hide in Ridge's body, all rebellous cells we call up and out. We speak that any medical treatment will not harm him or do any damage to him but will only be an instrument of correction to his current conditions. WE Decree that The LORD will use the hands of His Anointed and the knowledge of physicians as an instrument of healing. We decree that The Father's Holy Will will override all intellect in replacing His Thoughts, Plans and Purpose in this case, cause and claim to His Glory, in Jesus Name of Nazareth. Thank You Father for forgiving all iniquities and healing all diseases this day, we thank You for Total Victory in Ridge's gates, walls and loins, in perfect conditions ordained and Orchestrated by You Alone, in Your Power. WE command The Blood of The Lamb saturated in this gate, carepage, blog space, casting all seeds from a to z from the throne of darkness forbidden any further access or entry, in Jesus Name of Nazareth. WE build the BLOOD HEDGE IN POWER and MIGHT, YOURS for ACCESS by The Holy Spirit, in mercy, supplications. HalleluYah.
The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; Your Mercy, O LORD, Endures Forever; do not forsake The Works of Your Hands. Psalm 138:8
He will feed His Flock like a Shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His Arm, and carry them in His Bosom, and gently lead those who are with young. Isaiah 40:11
Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say those who are fearfulhearted, Be Strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God; He will come and save you. Isaiah 35:3-4 The Excellency of our God, be The Glory. Amen. Isaiah 54:17; Proverbs 3:5-6; WE call the ministry, warring and destiny angels to encamp around this family Father, till You say, "it's over." In this we stand steadfast and therefore, in holy mercy. HalleluYah, Amen. Praise and Worship to The Holy Living Trinity in holy unity. Blessed be our Holy Father, Lord and King Jesus and Sweet Holy and Precious Holy Spirit. Breathe upon this family a fresh and renew their spirit in Your Everlasting Joy, which is Thy Strength in hope, faith and LOVE. We Bless Thee. Hosanna! Amen.

Praying for you and for Ridge's deliverence from this disease. We pray for the Dr.s...that they would know exactly what to do to treat this disease, that the right medicine would be given, that the nurses will be attentive, and that God would give you and Brandon the strength physically, emotionally, and spiritually to do battle for your son. Tonight, I am praying specifically for rest for Ridge and for his parents, that his body will heal and that Alisha and Brandon can get some rest. Praying for you!
