Tuesday 30th June

Things not too bad - all a bit tired but we are OK. Been one full month at home today.
Ange has put on a little weight - which she really needed to. Ange went to a dinner on Sunday for people looking after people at home. She met three Christian ladies there who all knew about Georgie and who had been following the blog until I felt I had to close it off to the public. She was able to update them. Narromine Baptist prayer group are coming to our place tonight to pray. After seeing so much hardship at Westmead it is hard to be moved about a lot but kids suffering and peoples faith - they move us.
I met a couple at church on sunday night and the girl said she had become a Christian through reading the blog. The verses and peoples faith combined spoke to her. She had been a leader at the Baptist church girls club which Georgie used to go to. She said Georgie always used to ask lots of questions about God and always wanted to know more. We were thrilled to hear all of that.

A pastor friend sent me this quote today and I thought it pertinent especially as I was told the same thing yesterday from another person. Be specific.

This is a quote from David Jeremiah.

How often have we prayed something like, "O Lord, be with cousin Billy now in a special way"? Have we stopped to consider what it is we're requesting? Imagine that you are a parent who is preparing to leave your children with a babysitter. Would you dream of saying, "O Betsy, I ask you now that you would be with my children in a special way?" No way. You would say, "Betsy, the kids need to be in bed by 9 pm. They can have one snack before their baths, and please make sure they finish their homework. You can reach us at this number if there's any problem. Any questions before we go?" We are very specific with our requests and instructions for our babysitters. We want them to know specifics. It should be no different with prayer.

I thought about this and recalled the situation where Jesus asked the man "What do you want me to do for you?"

  1. Hi Greg,
    One month already - WOW!!! And, how our wonderful God has provided for you all ... nothing surprising about that, eh ....
    Greg, in an earlier post you mentioned a drug we should pray that Georgie might be able to come off - can't remember or find the name - how's that going?
    Also, how is Tom going - walking with our God yet?
    You know what I think - not that you are hard to be moved abouth some things but just very special people whom God has placed children in Westmead in your hearts AND all of you in our hearts!
    Love to you all as always
    in His perfect care
