Sunday Reflection...

Life is so uncertain.  Solomon said in Proverbs 27:1  "Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth."  [NIV]

Life can be cruising along one day, and the next day dangers appear out of nowhere imposing detours down frightening and untraveled roads.

That's what happened on June 30th.  My niece's 13 year old son, Nicholas, who had been playing on his baseball team with full energy, suddenly found himself in the hospital with dangerously low blood counts.  On July 2nd he was diagnosed with the rare blood disorder, aplastic anemia.

~ Nick ~

Nick needs a bone marrow transplant, and we rejoice that his five year old sister is a 10 out of 10 match. The transplant is scheduled for August 4th.  In the meantime, both Nick and his sister will be undergoing numerous tests at the University of Michigan Hospital, and Nick will have a week of chemotherapy to destroy his old bone marrow.

Even though life is uncertain, I'm glad God is not!  I will be grateful if you will pray with family and friends that the transplant will be successful [no rejection], and Nick's immune system is fully restored.   We will praise God for the miracle of healing. 

I'm claiming Jeremiah 32:17  "Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm.  Nothing is too hard for you."

May God bless your week!


  1. I will certainly be praying for Nick and his sweet sister!

  2. Keeping your family in my prayers. Blessings to Nick and his sister.

  3. I will definitely add Nick and his sister to my prayer list!
