Chapter 47: A Beautiful Blessing: Solomon Family

As a parent, you only want the best for your children.  When they're happy, you're happy. Sad or hurting, you're sad or hurting. The list goes on. All of these feelings are normal and as hard as these feelings can be at times, it is always comforting knowing that we aren't alone, that the Lord is with us.  He calms our fears and heals our pain. I know that in the middle of hard times, one may not feel the immediate calm or healing, but knowing and believing will guide us through these difficult times.  We are blessed to have a amazing God, who looks over us and protects us through this life that we are living.
A year ago, I hosted a baby shower in honor of our friends, Reid and Lacey Fisher, at our home. At the shower, I met many of Lacey's friends.  Many of the girls attend our church, Hope Fellowship in Frisco. 

As the shower came to an end, I remember talking with many of the ladies and came to find out that they too go to Hope Fellowship. The next Sunday at church, I saw one of the women, Elizabeth Solomon and her sweet baby girl in her car seat. This little angel was born with a heart defect called Transposition of the Great Arteries and has struggled to stay healthy in the year that she has been given.  I follow her Mom on Facebook and have enjoyed her pictures and posts of their family!  Recently, Elise was admitted into the hospital to remove her tonsils and adenoids.  Unfortunately, her sweet body hasn't been able to fight the many struggles her body is going through. (which is more then just her tonsils) After many discussions with their doctors, the family has decided to take Elise home to enjoy being a family.

Elise is a beautiful blessing to her sweet family. She is a blessing too so many friends and family members. Please follow her story and pray for her family by following the website below:
Amazing Mom and Dad: Elizabeth and Andy Solomon
Precious Big Sister: Ava
Sweet Baby Girl: Elise
Caring Bridge Website: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/elisesolomon

Lord, please pray for this precious little child and her family as they come home from the hospital.  Lord we ask that you heal Elise, that you come into her and take away her illness, pain, and any fear.  We beg you to spare this child of any suffering. Please, guide this family and lead them to feel your amazing grace as they walk through this hard time.
In your precious name,
As a new Mom, I can only pray that my girls will always live a healthy and happy life. But, only God knows if this will happen. Whether or not their life plays out that way, these two will have the support of Michael and I always.

(Hope Fellowship: Michael and I went on our Church hunt about 3 years ago and we fell in love with this Church. I have participated in many women's bible studies,  2 summers of vacation bible school, women's retreats, we joined a life group with other couples, and have participated in many Hope Fellowship church functions/ activities. I have enjoyed growing in my faith with Michael and friends in this wonderful church. I feel blessed to found such a great place to raise our sweet girls! Thank your Lord for blessing us with this wonderful church, Hope Fellowship! I truly believe that Hope has lead me to be a better person and pushed me to follow Christ in a more in-depth way.)
