Birthday News

Lucy's scans were great. Her spine looked clear and her brain looked even better than it did a few weeks ago. It's the best birthday present I could have hoped for. Thanks for you continued prayers!

Tennessee has a tax free weekend starting tomorrow so maybe I'll be back to posting on a real computer very soon!

  14. This great news is a wonderful birthday gift. Now, let the fun begin. She will be so happy being back to school. Her friends will encourage her to try new things, and they will be so sweet to her. Life can take on a more normal look, and that will be good medicine for your family, too. Enjoy your day today, and enjoy your shopping this weekend. Sweet Lucy has truly been blessed by God, and what a testamony that will be for other mother's in your boat. Love to all, Pat Williams, a grandmother in Tuscaloosa

  16. HaPpY bIrThDaY to you Kate!!!

    What an awesome present.

    I don't believe for a minute you should feel humility. To be humbled yes.

    You are an amazing Godly woman and what you and your family have been through and will continue to go through as Lucy becomes stronger is very humbling to all who have grown to love your family.

    You ARE a huge inspiration to so many people. Your story I believe has brought many people to GOD and those of us that have had doubts closer to GOD.

    Thank you :)

  29. Happy Birthday!!! So excited for you and your family that is an awesome birthday present. My favorite birthday present this year was my son getting saved. Oh the tears that filled our eyes as we knelt beside the couch in our living room.

    We have been praying for Lucy and giving weekly updates to our church about her progress. We will continue to pray as we have been. God is so good and what a blessing to see Him work another amazing miracle.

    I have followed your blog for a long time and this is the first time I have written to you and I am so sorry. Most times I was completely speechless and never knew what to say. My prayers have always been with Lucy and your family, I have cried many times reading up on your lives and woke up the next morning running to my computer checking to see if you had posted any updates on Lucy.

    Thank you for sharing your faith and true emotions with us. I know sometimes it isn't easy, but it is nice to see real people and real feelings. God is good and He always is, but sometimes we don't truly understand why we go through certain trials. As my husband always says, "We may never know why." He is a Pastor in Maine and we have recently gone through one of the hardest things we have ever had to face as a family. It is hard sometimes to share how you really feel or even to ask WHY?, but God always knows. Through our trial I was able to reach out to a young lady in need of a Saviour and because we shared in a similar experience it allowed me to share God's Word and Salvation with her. What an awesome experience.

    Again, Thank you...and Happy Birthday!!!

    Forever in His Hands,
    Duska

  67. Hi Kate and family! I praise God that Lucy's scans looked so good. How wonderful! I have been praying for Lucy and you all for awhile now. Since I live in the area and am in Memphis a lot, I guess I just felt closer to y'all than some of the other kids I follow who live further away. Also, losing a brother who lived near Memphis last year to a brain tumor made me want to follow Lucy's journey. I am thrilled that God has chosen to heal Lucy thus far. I pray it continues and He gives Lucy many, many years ahead. May God bless you all. I know this has been very difficult on you all. Oh, and Happy late Birthday, Kate!!

  69. Happy Belated Birthday Kate!! I have been following your blog since late June... so excited to hear about Lucy's scans!! She is an amazing miracle!! She is a special little girl!! Praying that Lucy will continue to prosper in her health in every way!! Praying for the Lord to surround her in His protection and shield her with His love...That He watches over her comings and goings. The LORD Bless her and keep her; the LORD make His face to shine upon her and be gracious to her; the LORD lift up His countenance upon her and give her peace. Numbers 6:24-26 Kate you have been quite the soldier on your precious Lucy behalf , as well as, for your family. May God speak to you,encourage you, and strengthen you with His presence. We are ALL cheering you on and praying for you all at Living Proof Ministries!! We are keeping our swords drawn for Lucy!! You are all loved!! Kimberly Meyer-Prayer Chaplain.
