Karl Update - Please Keep Praying

From Pastor Linny about noon today - 
Karl did really well and the doctors were very pleased!  
Karl was taking about 30 breaths a minute on his own during the testing. 

Here are the current prayer needs:

{1}  Karl must open his eyes voluntarily. 

{2}  The fluid draining from the brain would remain clear.

{3}  The infection in his lungs would be gone!

You guys are amazing!  

Our thankfulness for your continual prayers 
cannot be expressed adequately in words. 

Please keep praying, God is moving!

Fasting For Karl Thursday

Pastor Linny from and the Knee Team will be fasting tomorrow, Thursday, July 21, for Karl.  Karl was in a serious motorcycle accident a few days ago.  Below is information straight from Pastor Linny's blog -
"And there is a very big mountain that the doctors are waiting for.

Karl needs to open his eyes on his own.

So I asked Bob and Vicki [Karl's parents] what they thought about having a day of prayer and fasting for Karl to open his eyes? 

They loved the idea!

So tomorrow is declared the official 

Day of 

Fast a meal, two meals, all day 
spend the time you would be eating in prayer.

If you are willing to join us in 
prayer and fasting 
asking the Lord to 
please let us know by leaving a comment" [over at]
Will you join us in praying for Karl to open his eyes on his own?
Joining the Knee Team on Thursday,

Checking In

Wow it has been a long time since I've posted.  In the past 4 weeks I have been extremely busy.  Hubby and I drove from California to Tennessee.  He's so good like that.  He flew to California so I would not have to drive cross country by myself.  We made a little vacation of it and spent two days in Williams AZ.  We ventured to the Grand Canyon.  I had never been, all I can say is WOW GOD IS JUST SO DARN AWESOME CREATING SOMETHING SO BEAUTIFUL AND MIND BOGGLING!  We also stopped in Tucumcari NM and Sallisaw OK before getting  home to our farm in Middle Tennessee.  

It is so good to be home.  It is so good to be settled.  I've been busy cleaning, organizing, weeding, mowing, etc.  In the process poison sumac found me.  I've been miserable for the past week.  I went to urgent care yesterday and the doc walked in, took one look at me and said, "You need a shot, then you need to get yourself down to the COOP and get yourself some weed killer."  Going to the COOP was not a priority for me, just feeling better is!

We traveled to Massachussetts last week to see family and take care of some things and I was miserable.  And, I looked horrible with oozing, pussing, yucky blisters all over my arms and legs.  Luckily on both flights to and from we sat in the Emergency Exit row on the planes, that way no one had to sit next to me. I sure wouldn't have wanted to sit next to me all oozing and pussing.  Today I am starting to feel better and have not seen any new break outs.  Thank  you Jesus, I'm on the mend!

I won't bother to gross you out with pictures!
