Hope

This week has been a reminder of Who is in control...
our Great and Mighty God. Our Hope is in Him.
We know it is a miracle that Jordan survived.

He is now conscious and has spoken to his family several times!
He's asked that everyone continue to pray. 
We are all greatly encouraged. 
However, he didn't pass the stress test for his heart, so he was unable
to fly to Maryland this week.
His wife and parents are now on their way to Germany 
to be with him. 
Please continue to pray for all of them.

I'm so sorry that I haven't gotten back to most of you for your kind words
on my last two posts. I will try to get around to visit this week.
Please know that our family is very thankful
  for your love and care, and most especially,
for your prayers.
 Blessings,
Marcia

Marcia, I haven't commented on the last two posts about Jordan, but I want you to know that I have been praying for him.

Actually, after reading the posts I immediately prayed instead of taking the time to comment.

Miracles are a precious gift from God. I will continue to keep him in my prayers.

Marcia, you do NOT need to apologize for not visiting people or responding to our comments. It's much more important that you focus your energy on your family right now. It's so thoughtful of you to keep us updated on how your nephew is doing. I'm so glad to hear that Jordan is conscious now and that his wife and parents are able to fly out to be by his side in Germany. I wish for his continued recovery so that he can come home soon.
Much love to you and your family.

Prayers for Jordan and your whole family. My husband is also a Marine and it makes my heart hurt to hear of any Marine in our "military family" injured.

I'm glad to hear that there are some encouraging signs for Jordan. It's too bad he wasn't able to fly home, but it's nice that his family is able to go and be with him. I will pray for his continued recovery.

Wanda Metcalf said...

Oh Marcia what a mighty God we serve! I am so glad he has been able to talk to his family. Just hearing his voice can help so much! Cont. prayers of course and will ask for safety and a peaceful flight as the trip to Germany is long and will be a stressful one.

I thought about you today. I got an email military related and I thought the information was really great. I didn't want to forward it and bother you. But to let you know your family is on my mind and I think about you and I am still praying.

If you would email me an address I would love to send a card to the appropriate place.

God is the great healer His hands are lovingly touching your family.

Hang in there
