You People are Lovely

Ever since my last post, I have read the comments you left (either here on on Facebook) every single day. And I sit here and cry over the truth you speak to me when my heart is overcome with the struggle of this world.

Everything went very well at my appt. I am very impressed with the genetics department at UVA, and we couldn’t have asked for a better team to be working with and for us. They took several vials of blood and sent some off to a separate lab to test me for the Li Fraumeni syndrome. It will be 4-6 weeks before we know results.

Would you pray for my heart? Fear likes to snake its nasty tendrils into my heart and mind. I long to wait on God and not agonize over possible results.

They also kept some of the blood to store at UVA, so if this test comes back negative (which we are hoping for) they can use what they have stored to test me for a couple other syndromes they are considering.

I am always blown away by the support y’all give and show (And I’m still trying to figure out my new blog format and how to respond to all your comments… but trust me, I am blessed by them all).

This past week found me:
–sitting with friends who prayed over and cried with me and sang with me one morning…
–reading emails and words of encouragement…
–helping with worship at VBS and encouraging children that our God is a God we can trust, words God knew I needed to say to my own heart as well…
–hearing from those of you who take the time out of your lives to hear my story and speak words I need (and long) to hear…
–driving over to UVA with my sweet friend, Caitlin, who helped me laugh and live and not be anxious…
–telling friends “I’ll be okay, but thank you,” for offering to stay with me while Brian was out of town a few days…
–entrusting my children once again to my mom who helps us tirelessly, and loves them no matter what.

You people are lovely.

And you bless me so.

And in blessing me, you bless my family.

We are constantly amazed.

Thank you.

  1. My precious Angie,

    You are a blessing to all of us. Your constant gratitude to Him spills over to many and I am one of those. I am so thankful for the grace that works in you, grace that is at work in you mightly. I stand with you in agreement that everything is normal. We stand as overcomers and who is he that overcomes but He who believes that Jesus is the Son of God even his faith.

    May the God of hope fill you with joy and peace in believing that you may dwell in hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

    Love and blessings,
