Update on Marie and Steve

Hi, my name is Cindy, I'm Marie's best friend, she wanted me to update everyone on what's been going on lately and thank everyone who has been faithful in praying for them.
No internet yet, but Praise be to God! They have been in their new home for about a week! God is faithful! Their new home is just blocks away from Steve's job. It was truly a God thing! And as you can imagine they have been busy getting things situated before Elijah arrives. They have felt every one's prayers and have a tremendous peace in their new home. Josiah also is so comfortable that several times in getting ready to go out, he has started saying that he wants to stay in his new home and once, when they returned he started kissing the fence so glad to be home! :)
She has been packed and ready to go to the hospital for the past two or three weeks. But unfortunately her body is not yet ready to deliver. But as she told me the other day, our days are ordained by God, HE knows the hour and day of our birth. So until then they will, as always, trust in their Sovereign Lord to see them through these next few days. Allowing His perfect will to be done in their lives.
Please continue to pray for them as the day draws near. She will return to the Dr. on Wednesday. Thanks again for opening your heart to my friend and her family, words cannot describe how your encouraging words and also just for reading and praying has helped them in this time in their life. May God's love and blessing be showered upon you and yours. God Bless.
Today? We're all getting together at their home to barbaque and enjoy the town's fireworks. And again to enjoy every moment Elijah is safe inside mommy :) Happy Fourth of July!


  1. Thanks so much for updating us Cindy. I was worrying about Elijah this morning. I met (on the phone) another 'cele Momma last night. A little boy named Jeremy, who's with Jesus now. They were Christians too, made the decision to carry to term despite the Dr's recommendations. Praise God for people who are willing to do the right and difficult thing. Give Marie and hug for me please!

  2. So glad to have an update. Thinking of you daily!

  3. Thank you for the update! I continue to check the site several times a day for news! I know that God has ordained Elijah's days. In His perfect time we will get to meet His perfect little Elijah. I'm praying for joy and peace and time.
