God's plan

"Just think, you're here not by chance, but by God's choosing.
His hand formed you and made you the person you are.
He compares you to no one else - you are one of a kind.
You lack nothing that His grace can't give you.
He has allowed you to be here at this time in history to
fulfill His special purpose for this generation."
-Roy Lessin

Please pray for Baby Ava

A friend and former coworker of mine has a 6.5 week old baby who is very sick. At one month old sweet Ava was discovered to have transposition of the great arteries (congenital heart defect) and due to her poor oxygen levels she has suffered severe brain damage. At this point heart surgery would be too risky because of the increased risk of more brain bleeds. The doctors have sent her home and told her parents to enjoy the time they have with her, but they are praying and believing God for a miracle for this precious baby. Please join me in prayer for Ava Rose.
