Ella Mae

He who fears the Lord has a secure fortress, and for his children it will be a refuge.

Proverbs 14:26

I just wanted to let everyone out in my blog reading world know that they need to pray for my friend Courtney and her family. Her little baby, Ella is in the hospital.

Here's some updates from her Facebook:
***PLEASE PRAY- we are taking our sweet girl Ella to the pediatric emergency room where she will be admitted... she hasnt gained weight in 4 days, and the dr. wants her there...we absolutely trust our God to heal her and protect her... we thank you ahead of time for praying for her! we love you all! and will keep you posted..

We are just waiting for a few days on a strict diet to see if she gains weight, if not more invasive testing needs to be done.. if she does then we get to go home.. but we are expected to be here for 4 to 6 days.. thank you all so much for praying for her and spreading the word.. her liver levels have come down a bit but they are keeping an eye on them.. the hardest thing I have ever done is trust God with my kids and put them in His hands.. but I know that He will take care of them.

Pray for Courtney, her husband Bernard (I think he goes by BJ), and their son Brodin. Pray for strength and encouragement for them in all of this. Pray for the doctors who are caring for this baby. I know that God's in charge in this situation but it breaks my heart to see a little baby in the hospital. As a parent I can't fathom that feeling. I just wanted to spread the word and make sure that everyone is praying for this sweet family. I don't even know Courtney real well, I knew her from Bible College and we've remained in contact. I just know that we're all part of the same family and I want them to feel encouraged by every prayer we could possibly get.

Thanks everyone!
