A prayer for Lucie

My nephew Danny and his wife are experiencing a trying time. Their daughter, Lucie, was born prematurely with some medical problems. Lucie is currently in the Scottish Right Hospital in Atlanta and has undergone several surgeries. I spoke with Danny today and she is now up to two pounds and has had her last surgery, she is doing well which is great news. As you can imagine, Danny and Lindsey are going through the emotional mill. I think we should all take a moment and pray, meditate, or just send good thoughts to them for a positive outcome for Lucie in the struggle she is going through. Children can surprise you in their resilience, lets hope that this is one of those times. Medical advances have come a long way in the past few years and we should be thankful for the expertise the doctors now have that can help Lucie out at this time. It takes situations like this to remind us of the things in life that are truly important. When day to day grinds take a backseat and love and hope come to the forefront of thought we are truly humbled. I offer to Danny, Lindsey and Lucie my sincerest prayer to God for peace in their hearts, guidance of the skills and judgement of the medical professionals who are helping Lucie to overcome her difficulties, and the hope that we may all be together soon to welcome her home.

thank you and everyone for your thoughts & prayers. Being our first child it is difficult to deal with a situation like this right at the beginning of her life. But we must move on, one step in front of the other, like we all have to do. Continue these things and one day, she'll be coming home.=) DannyP

Little Lucie,
You are in my prayers daily. I want your parents to know that with God all things are possible. Right now, give Him the glory. We do live in an age when we're amazed at what can be done for such a little being as Lucie. She is absolutely beautiful. Don't ever take your eyes off Jesus. Because of Him, you have your daughter. Prayers are going up daily for her and for your family.

Danny and Lindsey, God gives special children to special parents. Little Lucie has special needs right now and the most important need is prayer. God knows you are the special parents, with the special family, that Lucie needs. You have so many prayers going up every day and we have seen God giving Lucie successful surgeries, and weight gain. Prise the Lord for all of these blessings he has given to you. All things are possible with God. Lindsey and Danny, love this beautiful, precious gift that God has given you, just as you love God, with all your heart, will all your soul, and with all your mind.

The world can be a cruel place and especially so when you have to start out with a such a sore trial on your First Day. But let's all hope that it will temper her in good ways and teach her some valuable lesson that she'll carry with her in some quiet place that we'll never even see until she decides to tell us about it. And, years from now, when she has to face some other adversity, she can always know that she got through this one and that she has the strength to get through them all.

There is something strange yet comforting about suddenly realizing that you can actually love a tiny little person that you haven't even met yet.

I hope all the good winds blow in her direction.

it's double the heart ache for me. I look into my son's eye's and I see a love developing like none he's ever known, but shaded with worry and concern. I see my granddaughter so tiny and precious fighting each day to be stronger; and I can't help either one. Jesus Christ alone is the one who comforts them, He alone holds Lucie's future.I praise Him for Danny, Lindsey & Lucie and the miracles He isperforming in their lives. My cup runneth over!!!!

there is so much that could be said when a baby enter in this world in such a way. Jesus never said it would be easy, but He did promise not to ever leave us. if you wonder are there any miracles that happen in this world, then just look at this baby. we thank Jesus Christ for what He has done in Lucie's life and we praise Him for what He's gonna do. nothin hit homes until one of your own goes thru something so trying. if it was not for Jesus Christ there would be no hope at all. thank you Jesus
