Tuesday Update

Luke had another good restful night.  His brain and body are tolerating the halo really well…we are so thankful!  The doctor came by this morning to check on him and give us a tentative plan of action.  If everything stays calm as it has the past few days, then tomorrow they are going to start backing down the sedation.  In their words, “wean him off the sedation meds”.  Nobody knows what to expect so pray that God will be especially near to Luke and Ben and I.  Pray that his eyes will heal as well, we aren’t sure yet how well he will be able to see.   We love you all, please continue to lift Luke up to God.

  1. Praise God for where we stand with Luke in answered prayers. Many of us know a cute little boy with big smile, to others he is a son, a brother, a grandson, a nephew, a cousin and a child of God. We serve a faithful God and he has poured out blessings this past week to answer many of our prayers. Even though, we have only known your family for three short years, we have grown some deep relationships and value all of your friendships. We can hardly think of anything else but Luke and your family during this past week. We will continue to be in prayer.

    “If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.”

    Love, Tony and Melissa

  2. When Luke opens his sweet eyes he will see the beautiful family standing there and his heart will be glad. You all have been such an inspiration to all of us and we will be praying that things will continue to go well. We pray for God’s divine power and His mercy for Luke.

    Love and prayers…Joe and Esther

  4. Lindsey and Ben-I began praying, last night, I begged God to show me how to pray in specific ways—specifically, I felt that God wants me to pray that Luke will come off the sedation in a peaceful and very painless type of way! This “urgency” of praying for the “2 P’s” has been HEAVY on my heart, since last night! God has moved in each specific way we’ve all petitioned for–I’m hesitant to share that, b/c I don’t ever want to come across as someone who “thinks they’ve heard this GRAND voice and has this incredible prophetic word from God”–so often people start sharing some crazy things, in times like this–so take it for what it’s worth–and know that I will be focusing my prayers, during this next period of time, on peacefulness and painless transitions (is my faith BIG enough to pray for painFREE? this is stretching my faith, so much, in how I pray!) I just know what I felt in my “gut” and “heart of hearts” as I was driving down Beneva Rd. last night, in tears, as I lifted ya’ll up in prayer. Take it for what it’s worth and know that 2 P’s are being prayed for, on Luke’s behalf! (And yours too–I bet you could use the same 2 P’s!!!) You have an INCREDIBLE Army standing behind you, doing some serious spiritual battling! Love to you all!

  5. This is a song that came on, last night, as I was driving, praying for Luke and then I began crying, as I listened to the words…I had not heard of it before last night…. “Closer to Love” by Mat Kearney. Simple “soundtrack” on YouTube-the link:

    Lyrics:
    Closer To Love

    She got the call today
    One out of the gray
    And when the smoke cleared
    It took her breath away

    She said she didn’t believe
    It could happen to me
    I guess we’re all one phone call from our knees

    We’re gonna get there soon

    If every building falls
    And all the stars fade
    We’ll still be singing this song
    The one they can’t take away

    I’m gonna get there soon
    She’s gonna be there too
    Cryin’ in her room
    Prayin’ oh, Lord come through

    We’re gonna get there soon

    Oh, it’s your light
    Oh, it’s your way
    Pull me out of the dark
    Just to shoulder the weight
    Cryin’ out now
    From so far away
    You pull me closer to love
    Closer to love

    Meet me once again
    Down off Lake Michigan
    Where we could feel the storm blowin’
    Down with the wind

    And don’t apologize
    For all the tears you’ve cried
    You’ve been way too strong now for all your life

    I’m gonna get there soon
    You’re gonna be there too
    Cryin’ in your room
    Prayin’ Lord come through

    We’re gonna get there soon

    Oh, it’s your light
    Oh, it’s your way
    Pull me out of the dark
    Just to shoulder the weight
    Cryin’ out now
    From so far away
    You pull me closer to love
    Closer to love

    Cause you are all that I’ve waited for all of my life
    (We’re gonna get there)
    You are all that I’ve waited all of my life

    You pull me closer to love
    Closer to love
    Pull me closer to love (You are all that I’ve waited for)
    You pull me closer to love
    Closer to love
    Closer to love (Cause you are all that I’ve waited for)
    Closer to love

    Pull me closer to love
