I have again been meaning to post here a little more often... it just doesnt happen.
Some good news about the Donor Drive that is just days away is: Sooo many people have been asking me questions, want an interview... professors want me to talk to their classes! I wouldnt have it any other way, getting Karly and my picture in the paper, on fliers, people are hearing our struggle. I have an on air interview for a radio tomorrow (Fri) morning and just got off the phone doing a recording for MOODY radio. People are even trying to get us on the Oprah show! Crazy I know.
Some unfortunate news is that it is looking like Karly and mom will not be making it back for the Donor Drive. Mom says pretty much everything has been worked out and taken care of, so I shouldnt have to worry about anything that day... .. ...
But I want them there! I am saddened they will not be there; mom had me tearing up on the phone while I was trying to drive :(
Its been a crazy week so I feel exhausted...worn.
This morning I had every intention of meeting with someone, but I had to rainheck and make a diff time...just felt awful, eyes swollen, skin, etc. I finally was getting showered and waking and then a song started playing in my head. God was singing to me the song Stay Strong by Newsboys. Here are the lyrics:
You're in the moment now
A bitter rouse
A wandering eye and then
The ties that bind start wearing thin, within

You're in the moment now
When all that you've been blessed with
Is not enough
Here's where the ground gets loose
Here's where the devils call your bluff

Stay strong
You are not lost
Come on and fix your eyes ahead
There's a new dawn to light our day, our day
You've gotta stay strong
You and I run
For the prize that lies ahead
We've come too far to lose our way, our way

We've seen the tragic flaws
The tortured souls
The saints with feet of clay
Here's where sin becomes cliche'

We've come through wilderness and watched
The cloud by day
The burning sky into dawn
Have you forgotten who you are?
Did you forget whose trip you're on?


Get up, there's further to go
Get up, there's more to be done
Get up, this witness is sure
Get up, this race can be won
This race can be won

We've gotta stay strong
You are not lost
Come on and fix your eyes ahead
Our Father's dawn will light our day, our day
Come on and stay strong
His grip is sure
And His patience still endures
There'll be no letting go today, no way

Come on, and stay strong
You and I run
For the prize that lies ahead
We've come too far to lose our way, our way.

Can you hear what He was speaking to me? In the bridge- Get Up, This Race Can Be Won!
I will bring Him glory in this battle, because His will is being done... "Everything works together for the good of thos who love the Lord!" Romans 8:28.
Stay Strong! His patience still endures... That is a great thing because mine runs low, I need His!
So many encouragements I heard in that song, I started to praise and dance in my one else here, but the room was full! :)
That is what I had to share with you all. Hope it encourage you!
