A verse for Ava…

Our little Ava is a very sick girl right now in critical care.  Yesterday afternoon her temp started to come up and her heart started beating faster and it was still high at 10:00 last night so I came back to the hospital to stay with her.   Around 4:00 am she still had the high heart rate and wasn’t settling so the team from the critical care unit came up to assess her and eventual brought her down to their unit.

She spiked a fever of 41 degrees after we got here so she clearly is fighting some sort of infection or virus.  And that combined with a very poor functioning heart is not a good combination.

Right now she is laying on a cooling mat to bring her temperature down and she is sedated and on pain killers.  Her heart rate does seem to be dropping and she is comfortable, but now we have to wait and see what God’s plans for Ava are.

Our beloved pastor Norm and his wife Cindy came to see us yesterday along with friends Dawn and Cory.  Dawn gave me this verse for Ava which I love and is so perfect.

Psalm 73:26

 My flesh and my heart may fail,

    but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.


Once again, no matter what happens, God is our strength, forever!

  4. Lisa and Jason,
    Praying with you and for you….and waiting with you to see what God’s plans are. This journey of faith is so hard sometimes; it can be so difficult to wait and trust. But we know that “God is our refuge and our strength, an ever present help in trouble”. And so we are able to rest in His promises and trust in His plan.
    “Be still and know that I am God – I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge” Psalm 46:1,9,10
    With love and prayers for all of you,
    Bill and Kathy
