The GOD of Hope!!!!

JESUS, JESUS, JESUS...I fall on my face before you in praise and honor and glory to your Precious Name!!!  Oh how I am not surprised that little angel Brooke made it through the night...Thank you , thank you, thank you!!!

I asked the LORD last night to keep waking me up so that I could pray all night long...As the night progressed I would text Fran encouraging her that I'm still praying...At about 3AM my time, I texted her, "I'm still praying my sweet friend, the LORD is good." Her response, "Yes, HE is.  Haven't seen any doctors yet but she (Brooke) is a fighter. We know she can do this, go to sleep Denise, I love you." I didn't realize it was 6AM her time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As I lay in my bed giving worship & praise to GOD I fell asleep with a smile on my face....Diane calls at 7AM my time...She spoke to Fran (imagine this scene)...Fran says to Diane, we told our family members to go in a say their last goodbye to Brooke...Devastation took over...Fran said they just started sobbing...I can feel their pain as I type...Sobbing, weeping, devastated with all the strength leaving their bodies, crying with no sound from their mouths, from a pain that crushes their hearts....I'm crying right now even though Brooke made it...The pain, the pain, the pain is unimaginable!!! Fran continued and said all of a sudden, thunder and lightening came so loud it shook them, "I knew it was GOD, Diane!"

Yes, it was my sweet friend...Yes, it was....JESUS the GOD of Hope heard your prayers and the petition of all HIS people...HE makes Himself known in a mighty way, yet gentle as a Dove...Remember to praise HIS Name today friends...Remember our Sweet, Glorious GOD only has good things for us, and remember to continue to pray just as passionate to our LORD JESUS as you did yesterday for Brooke! She is still critical and needs continuous prayer!

John 5:14-15

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.  And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.

Urgent Prayer Request

To all my prayer warriors and to people that are not prayer warriors, but pray to our LORD JESUS… I need your prayers for a friend of mine, desperately…My friend Fran who I grew up with and known for over 30 years has a beautiful little girl named Brooke, she’s almost 8 yrs old…She was just recently diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), sound horrifying doesn’t it?

Attached is a link you can read for more information...This is a rare brain tumor that is located in an area doctors are not able to remove, it affects children between the ages of 5-10 yrs old, and the chances of survival are less than 3%!! 


Stop and imagine right now one of your children playing around happy as can be, and within a few weeks being hospitalized in the ICU not being able to move anything because they are in a vegetable stage…I say to imagine all of this because I know, that I know, that I know if this was your child you would want everyone in the world to pray…

When I mentioned this tumor is not removable, I meant it cannot be removed by man…But, we all know that our LORD JESUS can remove it! HE is the only one that can remove it…Please pray this beast of a cancer be removed from Brooke’s brain, or this tumor would shrink, and that this child’s miraculous recovery would glorify our LORD JESUS and many would come to know and worship HIM through it…

The LORD always desires us to pray because in HIS Word HE tells us to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17)…When I told my friend Fran that myself and a few others were already praying, she said she can feel the prayers…I told her when I sent a prayer request out for my Little Lovely a woman in my church told me my prayer request reached the Philippines and Thailand…I told her I would be sending this prayer out to many and that GOD’S people would pray for her sweet Brooke…She was amazed! So please, my family in CHRIST JESUS, please forward this request to all that you know and let’s pray without ceasing…As I hear updates from Fran, I will update you…

I thank you all and I’m in awe just knowing the power that my friend will received from your prayers to JESUS…May our LORD be glorified, glorified, glorified!!!

Project 52-2013 (Week 18)

I love when friends ask me to take their photos...I only wish I new what I was somewhat doing...I think these came out pretty good (for the yearbook & maybe in a frame in your house)with the exception of some grain..  Right now that is the kind of "photographer" I am, and I'm good with that...I don't even like calling myself that, so let me change it to, "right now that is the kind of "picture taker" I am...Ahhh, that sounds better!  

Anyway, I cloned something on the older beauty, can you tell what it is?

Project 52-2013 (Week 17)

WOW...I'm just forgetting left and right these days...I'm just going to use this self-portrait I took for another challenge I'm in which I titled, "self, yuck, overrated" HA!

What's funny is, you know I wouldn't be posting a picture of myself if I looked terrible... Hence, "self, yuck, overrated"

 HA, again!
