Best of Times, Worst of Times

March 6, 2008

>I sit here not knowing what to write. I have been telling people I am the most happy and the most sad I have ever been, all at the same time. Maybe God knew I couldn’t handle Lilly’s death and Simon’s situation without Chloe. I hold her all day and night and just cry tears of joy for her and tears of sadness for Jennifer and Amy.

Thank you to everyone for all you have done. The e-mails, comments, phone calls, and most of all prayers have been what has helped Trey and I cope this week.

Please look at the Cowtown Times for an update on Simon. Along with praying for Amy’s request, here is another way you can pray for this situation.

  • Pray for my parents, Wilma and Cleve, as they prepare to hopefully get Simon in their care. They bought a new house 2 weeks ago, and haven’t sold their current house. Please pray it sells quickly. Also pray for them as they are both back at work in somewhat stressful jobs. Pray for their hearts to be comforted when they think about the time they are missing with Chloe; they had planned on coming here for all of her “firsts”. This has been hard for me and my mom. Thank God that Pam, Trey’s mom, lives around the corner and has been with me every step of the way.

Please look at Richard’s sister’s blog for information on Lilly’s funeral and how Jennifer and Richard are coping. Also pray that Chloe does great with her Noni while Trey and I attend the luncheon and funeral on Friday.

One other prayer need we have: As if all of this isn’t enough, Trey’s last day at his current company is tomorrow, and his new job starts Monday. Please pray that Trey transitions smoothly and that he will find excitement and joy with his new job even though he and his friends and family are suffering, and he has to leave Chloe and I every day. How tough!

Chloe is doing amazing, can’t you tell from these pictures? She is one happy baby and we are all learning the ropes quickly! She had her first check-up and all went well. Physically, I am doing wonderful and I am continuing to feel better every day.

You were definitely worth it all!

Can’t get much cuter than this!

My first bath- I did great!

Our first walk. I pretty much slept the whole time, but it was nice for me and mommy to get outside on such a pretty day!

    >Sherry, again, just to let you know I think about your situation often. I pray each time it comes to mind. I also pray that Satan would not rob you or your joy in having Chloe either. Anyway, stand firm during this trial…we’re praying.

    >Sher Bear! I love you SOOO much. Chloe is amazing and I can’t wait to see her. God is doing miracles in the hearts of our family through this situation. Debbie told me today that all that is lost will be restored. I believe that, for Richard and Jennifer, for me, Allen, and Simon, and for you, Chloe and Mom. In the world we have trouble, but He has overcome the world. You are so dear to me and I can’t imagine my first week as a mommy being so difficult. I pray it has been filled with wonderful moments as well. I love you forever! YFS

    >Sherry…I have been following all of this through all of our connections (Randa, Katie B. and Kristi W.) I have been praying for these families and you guys. Chloe is BEAUTIFUL and I can’t imagine all of the love you feel for her each time you look at her. I am encouraged at your strength as you hold fast to your faith and I hope God will use you at a comforter and encourager in your situations. May the Lord be with all of you right now…you guys are being prayed over by so many.
