A God thing

Luke had the same nurse yesterday here at UVA as he had when he had heart surgery at Tampa Childrens Hospital when Luke was first born, and this nurse remembers Ben and Lindsey from then. This is simply a God thing…this nurse went from Tampa, Florida to Hawaii to California and ended up here at UVA. She is on duty tonight and tomorrow night.

  4. This story is just a pure example of how GOD works and is always there for those who reach out!!! In Luke’s case he sent an angel in the form of a nurse how else could this be possible… without GOD it couldn’t! We are praying for Luke’s complete recovery!

  6. One of my favorite hymns says it best, “God moves in a mysterious way, his wonders to perform. He plants His footsteps in the sea and rides upon the storm. May you ciontinue to feel God moving through you.

  15. Ben & Lindsey,

    We are praying for Luke’s complete healing. I am also praying for the peace of God which is above all human understanding to be with you and Ben. God is a miracle worker and I am continually asking God for a miracle in Luke’s body. May the peace, strength and love of God be poured out on you and your family.

  16. Praise God for that! When my niece was at UVA, she definitely had her “favorites” among the nursing staff 🙂 It’s so great to have someone who cares especially! May the Lord “make His face to shine upon you” today!

  18. We have prayed for your family around the closk. we lived thru a simular experience in July of 2007 when lydia cox, my then 18 month old daughter fell off our swingset at our Stuarts Draft home. Rescued by Pegasis, taken care of at UVA with Dr Jane, and prayed for by all, angels lifted us up and saved my baby girl too! It will change your life forever and although it is hard right now, you will become closer to God thru all of these struggles! Hang in there! Thank you Lord!!!
