So here’s the deal. I haven’t posted a TON about it for various reasons, but I know Abby has a lot of people praying for her & I’m so grateful for each one of you. . CVS. Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. This rare condition that pops up, steals joy, no one exactly knows the cause for, there’s no cure for, but that you can definitely count on coming back right on time. So today is 14 days. Exactly 2 wks since her last cycle began, 3 days longer than when the last one came and 5 days shorter than the longest duration between two episodes for her. But usually right around 14 days. It’s bizarre, awful, & heartbreaking. When she’s in an episode she can’t eat, is on anti-nausea meds around the clock, sleeps alllll day, can barely sip anything without throwing it up, no therapies, her siblings miss the heck out of her, & she doesn’t smile. For 4-5 days. We’re in a support group but some of those situations are just so scary. We’re trying meds, but so far no improvement. We have a million questions to ask at her appt. & we’re really praying for some kind of a breakthrough. But here is where we are. We won’t let this steal our joy or distract us from God or take us out of life. We have 3 other kids who need life to keep going so desperately, so we’re making do. We’ve been handed this miracle to raise & guide & with everything we have in us we’ll do our very best. We LIVE for the good days and pack them so full, memorizing every laugh. And on the bad days we divide & conquer, show up at church with towels, barf bags, tons of comfy blankets, & do our dang best. So here we are, 14 days and PRAYING THE BIG PRAYERS as Scott says. Another cycle will come, & it could come whenever. We PRAY it won’t come on Ellie’s b-day tomorrow, we PRAY we can see day 19 again or even 20..a new record! We PRAY we figure out the triggers, stressors, supplements or med cocktail that’ll work & we PRAY she’ll outgrow this. But most of all we pray our family bond will

1 Corinto 10:13 (MBBTAG) “Wala pang pagsubok na dumating sa inyo na hindi nararanasan ng ibang tao. Tapat ang Diyos, at hindi niya ipapahintulot na kayo'y subukin nang higit sa inyong makakaya. Sa halip, pagdating ng pagsubok, bibigyan niya kayo ng lakas upang makayanan ito at ng paraan upang malampasan ito.” ❤️ #mylifeverse

This is how my calling began. Or at least how I realized it. I was a sixteen year old girl, sitting in my bedroom, on my pink carpet, playing Bible roulette, just hoping it would fall open to a page where God would speak to me. (This does not always work, but this day, it did.) ⠀ ⠀ My Bible fell open, and there it was: James 1:27. It jumped off the page during a very pivotal moment in life where I was trying to decide “what I would be when I grew up”. I was pondering questions like where I would go to college, what I would major in, how far away from home I would go. And God used this one verse to give me direction and answer the worries racing around in my head.⠀ ⠀ It didn’t matter. What mattered was this: looking after orphans and widows, and not becoming one with the world. ⠀ ⠀ And so it became my life verse and the founding verse of our nonprofit organization, Haiti Foundation Against Poverty. ⠀ ⠀ Do you have a life verse? I would love to know!
REST. Jesus called for rest. It’s not laziness. It’s not failure to “redeem the time.” Contrary to what I’ve heard Christians preach all my life, this rest isn’t “doing all the good work you’ve been doing but do it in the power of Jesus,” it’s a true rest from all the stuff you think you have to do to be a “Good Christian” because JESUS heals our hearts. JESUS makes us a good Christian. Loving, serving, kindness, goodness—these are outcroppings of our new hearts, not something we have to earn or prove by all the service projects! Rest is Biblical. Rest is godly. Don’t be fooled into fatigue. #mylifeverse#burnoutisreal
Seeing what i've been through sa life, i can say that this verse is really alive. Without God sa life ko, i will never reach my dreams, i will never be a PT. Parainum gid ko guro, pariwara ang life. But thank you Lord, kay na nakita mo ko. and the moment i receive you as my Lord and Saviour my life really turned 360 degrees. and soo proud to say I AM A CHILD OF GOD. 😍😍😍💜💜💜💜 #psalms37:4 #mylifeverse#thankyoulord
