Sammy had a good day today. He ate a little, and had energy and was playing with his friends. He did spike a temp tonight (tomorrow will make two weeks since these fevers started again:-() But other than that he is doing well. I haven't heard about those specialists but am hoping maybe by next week. In other news we have ordered his birthday cake for his party and I am so excited. It is going to be a 3D Thomas the Train!!! He will be so happy I am sure. Hard to believe he is going to be three in just a few short weeks. Yesterday and today I was really struggling in myself with just being overwhelmed and frustrated and feeling emotionally spent, that I just had nothing left to give and then while I was reading some of my favorite blogs I came across this on a great blog the other day, you should pop on over and say some prayers for sweet Camryn as she is battling cancer for the second time in her short life.www.dynamicmikelsduo.blogspot.com. We all have so much on our plates, and often get caught up in sickness, sadness, messes, naughty kids, bills piling up, relationships with family and our spouse, but I am reminded that God trule IS, WAS, and always WILL BE. He is with us each step of the way, may you be encouraged. May you feel Him carrying you in your weakest hour, may He comfort you as He comforts me.


I Am Not But I Know I Am by Louie Giglio

And in the days to come, when you're questioning, needing, searching, wondering, asking, and struggling, you will find His sufficiency at the end of every desperate prayer. When you cry out all the things that you are not, you'll know His answer is, "I AM."

For every cry, there is one answer:

I need help
I AM.

I need hope,
I AM.

Who could possibly be smart enough to figure this out?
I AM.

What works?
I AM.

What lasts?
I AM.

What's the latest thing?
I AM.

What's the hippest thing?
I AM.

I need a fresh start,
I AM.

I need a bigger story,
I AM.

My vision is bigger than my resources
I AM.

Nothing's real anymore,
I AM.

Who can I trust?
I AM.

I'm not sure who's on my team.
I AM.

Nobody's listening to me.
I AM.

I don't have a prayer.
I AM.

My marriage is sinking and I don't know where to turn,
I AM.

I can't hold on.
I AM.

My kids deserve more,
I AM.

I'm pouring into other, who's pouring into me?
I AM.

If we fail, who will get the job done?
I AM.

I'm not sure why I'm here,
I AM.

I've given all I can give and it's not enough,
I AM.

I'm tired.
I AM.

I quit!
I AM.

I can't!
I AM.

I need a drink.
I AM.

I need a fix,
I AM.

I need a lover,
I AM.

Somebody just hold me.
I AM.

And what does this great I AM say of Himself? he says to you and to me: "I am the way, I am the truth, and I am the life. I am the resurrection and the life. I am Savior. I am Jesus - the solution, the restorer, the builder, the answer, the Wise One, the Coming One, the Mighty One. I am the Lord and there is no other. I am God and there is none besides Me. I am the First and the Last. I am the Alpha and Omega. I am the Beginning and the End. I am the Lord, that is My name, and I will not give My glory to another, or any of My praise to idols. I AM THAT I AM, and that is My name - My memorial name to ever single generation."
