Sara and I talked today and we talked a lot about Boldness! She has really inspired me to be BOLD about telling people about Jesus. A couple of things you should know, she went to the doctor today and her white blood cell count is still up but she has only been on the new medication for 5 days. So keep praying that this med will bring the levels down so that she will be able to receive the transplant. She will be going to the Doctors at UT Southwestern on Monday May 11th so we should have an update then on how quickly everything will proceed.
In talking with Sara she would like specific prayer for travel this weekend, Ben is graduating from ACU and the whole family will be there she just wants to have a wonderful weekend with family and a blessed mothers day. On Tue the 12th of May the whole family, Tracy and I will be flying to Washington DC for Cliff Jr. Graduation from Georgetown Law School. Please pray that she will be fine to travel and that everything will go as planned.
God has blessed me in so many ways but one of my blessings is that I have had a great mentor and sister in Christ "Sara". She seeks God everyday, listens to him speak and uses his words to encourage others. These are the words that she wanted me to share with you, "God made me a strong woman and when I demonstrate his strength though the power of His Holy Spirit I feel his pleasure. I feel honored, privileged and driven to share Jesus with people through this season."She wants you to know that she feels your prayers and she is thankful for your prayers.
I want to thank you for your comments, I read them to her and they bring her great comfort knowing that so many people are praying for her.
Many blessings to you and may you bring many blessings to others, that is why we are on this earth, to bless and serve God's people.


  1. I never seem to have just the right words to say in these situations. So I will let Him speak for me.

    "God, who shows you his kindness and who has called you through Christ Jesus to his eternal glory, will restore you, strengthen you, make you strong, and support you as you suffer for a little while." (I Peter 5.-10)

    "You are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world." (1 John 4:4)

    "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters ... they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God" (Isaiah 43:1-3).

    Jim and I will be in prayer for you and your family. We love all of you so much.

  3. Sara - The Lord will lift you up and give you strength. He has sent a band of angels to watch over you. He loves and adores you as do I. Much love and prayers!
    God's Speed!
