Jessie and Macey

http://www.prayforjessie.org

I'm going to blog a little early today, because tonight (my usual blog time) I'll be picking the boys up at the airport, and wanting to spend time with them and not on the computer.

I have some GREAT news today for both Jessie AND Macey!!

Jessie can lift her left arm now!!!!! Can you believe it!!! All you have to do is tell Jessie to show her muscles and she lifts her left arm like she is doing a body-builder bicep pose. It is hard for her, and she can't leave it up long...but she can do it!!!! My whole life I have seen things and not given credit where credit is due, but this one goes up to Our Father in Heaven!!!! How can you take out the central motor control of a brain and have the other side take over! Praise to God!! and thank all of you for your prayers! They can be answered.

And speaking of praises to God. This one goes out to the Man Upstairs as well. Today, I talked to Tim (Macey's Dad), and he said that Macey's pain is gone, and that she was downstairs in the playroom. Her lab numbers are great, and the doctors can't explain why she is doing better. She is moving to KKI today!!! I'm at a loss for words...really. Thank You for all of your prayers for this sweet girl. Keep'em coming. I wish that you could all meet her. She is such a sweetie and you would just want to pick her up and give her a big hug.

Dear Lord, Thank You for today's Blessings!! - Cris

AWESOME report!!!!!!! Please keep 'em coming, it helps us to be encouraged as it renews our faith!

WOW!!!!!!!! Doing the happy dance at my chair!!!!!!!

I will continue to pray that Macey's body will continue to "line up" with God's Word, for her complete healing and full restoration to happen quickly!

Dont-cha just love when God does things that stump doctors and those in the medical world??!!!

Thank You Jesus! Praise the Lord!

Makes me sing the song....Nothing is too difficult for Thee!

Thank You Lord for healing Macey and Thank You Lord for the signs that Jessie is on her way too!

Sending Lots of Love from Aledo,TX

Way to go, girl!! You are awesome. Keep up the GREAT work!
The Jones family has been in the cooler parts of Arizona for a week. No computer there, so I could hardly wait to get on the computer when we got home. Reading a whole week's blog at one setting was awe-inspiring! You have made great progress in just a week!! Keep going. I love the new site. I almost thought I had gotten to the wrong place when it first came up. It is beautiful--of course why wouldn't it be with Jessie there. God is so good. We continue to keep you in our prayers (and hearts).

Good Morning! What an awesome thing to read! Go Jessie! Macey is in our prayers also! No more pain and complete healing for all the children. It is so wonderful to see God's work. It is also wonderful to know that Dr. Carson believes in the power of God and I am sure that he prays over the children for God's wisdom to guide him in surgery. As we have talked about before, I have had about 30 operations at JHH and spent many months at KKI also. At my last surgery in 1995, I was in the OR and just before the anesthesia took effect, I asked the OR team if they believed in God and I remember drifting off as I heard different voices saying, "I do!" I knew things would go easy as the doctors were allowing God to work through them. What a gift. The doctors that do believe know where the healing comes from and I think it is just awesome when "science" and God come together and God is given the credit as he should be! Hugs to all of you, high fives to Jessie and keep up the good work kiddo!

"Our God Is An Awesome God" I heard this song this morning and thought of the Hall family since I know you have found this to be "OH" so true. I have been following Jesse's blog since son Jeff told me about it and know that we as believers can expect marvelous things from our Awesome God, what others might consider coincidence but not so. Thank you for the good news of Jesse's continued progress, she is in my prayers daily as all of you are.

How incredibly encouraging and uplifting!!! All glory to the Lord!!! Words cannot describe how thrilled I am that Jessie can lift her left arm. I cannot even begin to comprehend the massive amount of rewiring that her brain has done is such a short amount of time…there is no explanation other than the Grace of God! Thank you so much for sharing Macey’s fantastic news with us!! That brings such joy to my heart- many prayers that the Lord would continue to heal and restore that precious little girl. Have a blessed time with The Boys!
