"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

Heartbreaking Night

Last night between 2:15 and 2:30 am Rachel had another spell and it was a horrible one.  Our Palliative Care doctor was on her way to our house when she finally pulled out of it.  We thought this might be it. I'll write more later.

I have been following your blog and praying for your family. I pray you feel an overwhelming about of God's strength today as you are emotional and physically drained. May you have moments of joy and refreshment with Rachel, Ethan and Abigail, moments that ease and erase the pain.

oh my . . . my heart dropped reading this. may God have mercy! how are you and dave doing? i feel grateful that your other children were sleeping at the time and did not have to experience this too. Lord, please spare Dave and Kendra from having to witness any more pain and suffering in their daughter Rachel. Lord, when the time comes for her to go be with you, may she go in peace. Lord, I pray that her heart spells be over and that the days remaining to her be beautiful, peaceful, full of big smiles and true joy. I pray in the name of Jesus, who understands what it means to suffer. Please be kind, dear God.

Oh my little Funk family. This was not what I was anticipanting to read today being so soon after the last one. I am happy to hear that she pulled through this time. I will continue praying for her and for all of you. I feel Fiona's sentiments for sure. I pray that you will find strength in the only one that can provide it.
Much love sent your way,
Christina
