"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be." - Shel Silverstein

Prayer Request


As of noon Oct. 14, Emerson is doing better. She is still not out of the woods by any means, but is now stable enough for dialysis. She is a fighter and the power of prayer is very evident in this little girl's life. Here is a link to her website.


You can go here and get updates about her as well as see pictures and even sign her guestbook with a message of support. Thank you all for your prayers!

I have been following the story of a beautiful little two year old girl named Emerson who lives just miles from us. Sweet Eme has been fighting for her life lately and has almost lost the battle a couple of times. She had a multiple organ transplant over the summer and it looked like she had finally turned the corner. She even took her first steps a week ago. Today I am heartbroken to read that she has taken a sharp turn for the worse. She coded today (her heart stopped beating). They were able to bring her back but she is very unstable. Her heart, liver and kidneys have been damaged by this episode. There is a high likelihood that she will code again and they will not be able to bring her back.

Please pray with us that Emerson will make it through this and God will bring strength and peace to her family.

Prayers have gone out for this little girl and our Rissa Roo. My group of older singles are all baby lovers - some read about Marissa on a regular basis. Just know that all of you are prayed for on a regular basis.

Now...give that baby a big ole kiss from Grandma in Utah.

Love you guys

I didn't post this until today, but both the Pagosa and Grand Junction prayer chains were alerted to this prayer request. We also personally have been, and will continue to pray for little Miss Emme. Love to all....Nana & PaPa
