I was about to write a whiney post this afternoon. About what a bummer week it's been with no apparent referrals from our agency (Gladney). Just a slow week. Then, I was perusing Facebook, looking for any referral news when I spotted an urgent prayer request from a sweet friend from church and my MOM's group. Suddenly, my perspective is much clearer.
Steve and Becki Neuman have a 4 year old daughter, Claudia, who just two days ago complained of bad leg aches. When she didn't stop complaining about it, Becki took her in to the Dr. Xrays were done, blood work drawn...which led to some results the pathologist didn't like. Preliminary results are pointing towards Leukemia. They are waiting for more conclusive test results. Tonight, Becki and Claudia were called into Doernbecher Children's Hospital, to prep sweet little Claudia for a bone marrow test tomorrow.
Please, Please, lift up our friends in prayer. Steve happened to be traveling out of town this week, and is catching an early flight home tomorrow. They have two other children as well....please pray for peace, for calm hearts, and negative results. Pray for Becki, as she's in the middle of this without her hubby next to her (physically) and for Steve, as I'm sure it's so so hard to be distanced from his family right now. Pray that the Lord would fill their hearts with his words of scripture, his comfort and his love. Lord, let them have restful sleep tonight. Lord...you are mighty to save. Please do it here, again.
