We will always remember Ellie for her love for others, her creativity, sensitivity, and delight in life! Ellie's light has spread far and wide... may it continue to shine in our hearts.

The day began at Midnight

Ellie had difficulty in the night with an out of control kicking, fighting episode around midnight that lasted about an hour and then another this morning at 7:00. Her platelets are down to 32 today so restraining her can cause bruising. John had “watch” last night and was relieved this AM by Sarah and Belinda. Pray for the doctors to have wisdom to know what to do to help Ellie and for Sarah and Belinda to have strength in the day. Thank you for surrounding us and for your faithfulness.

Your love is the branch of hope
I cling to.
In the rising tide,
in the restless wind,
in the gathering storm,
You are my peace.
(B.J. Hoff)

Praying for you today!
Love, dana

Oh I'm praying for your sweet little girl today and praying for you and the doctors. Praying that Jesus will heal and if he chooses not to praying for Peace. Our Jesus is so sweet and so lovely to us, praying you can feel his sweet spirit.

If You Want Me To

The pathway is broken
And the signs are unclear
And I dont know the reason why you brought me here
But just because you love me the way that you do
Im gonna walk through the valley
If you want me to

Cause I'm not who I was
When I took my first step
And I'm clinging to the promise you're not through with me yet
So if all of these trials bring me closer to you
Then I will go through the fire
If you want me to

It may not be the way I would have chosen
When you lead me through a world that's not my home
But you never said it would be easy
You only said I'd never go alone

So when the whole world turns against me
And I'm all by myself
And I can't hear you answer my cries for help
I'll remember the suffering your love put you through
And I will go through the valley
If you want me to...

As I listened to the list in my Media Player last night, this song stuck out to me and I wanted to send it on to you.

Love you!

Hi Ellie and family, I doubt Ellie or her dad remember me but i met Ellie in Toys-r-Us in New York a few weeks ago. I would just like to let you all know that I am keeping Ellie in my prayers and my family is as well. Ellie is so sweet and I hope God chooses to heal her and make her better because she is such an amazing little girl. If possible, please tell Ellie that I'm praying for her, even if she doesnt remember me. thank you, and i hope all goes well. -Devin

Majesty, worship his majesty;
Unto Jesus be all glory, honor, and praise.
Majesty, kingdom authority,
Flow from his throne unto his own, his anthem raise.
So exalt, lift up on high the name of Jesus.
Magnify, come glorify Christ Jesus, the King.
Majesty, worship his majesty,
Jesus who died, now glorified, King of all kings.

Because of Who He is:

For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.
Psalm 31:2-3

Praying for the Lord to give wisdom to the doctors and strength and peace to the loving hearts and hands that care for Ellie. She is God's special treasure - touching so many with her courage and beauty.

May the God OF ALL PEACE, surround you and flow through you. May He grant you peace that only the Peace Speaker can give and may your minds be refreshed and calmed by the Comforter, the Holy Spirit.
We are praying in S.C.

Praying for some peaceful rest for Ellie tonight. May God give each of you and the doctors wisdom with every decision to be made. I am so thankful we have a risen, living Saviour that is interceding on behalf of you right now, Sarah, John, Ellie and Ethan.
