Day 51 - Praying for my friend, Kenzie

Tristan had a great night sleep last night. He was not fussy, his color did not change and his apnea monitor did not go off at all - it was a great night! Thank you to everyone who lifted Tristan's name up in prayer last night and today as we had requested on our blog, yesterday (Day 50) and thank you to everyone who left a comment or who personally emailed us, we feel so loved not only by people we know but from people we've never met.

I will be honest, tonight my mind is flooded with thoughts for my sweet friend, Kenzie, as we were just in the hospital 51 days ago awaiting the birth of Tristan and not knowing what the future would hold, so I completely understand every feeling and emotion she is experiencing tonight. Kenzie and I have been "Internet" friends and emailed back and forth for months and I had the opportunity to personally speak with her on the phone Friday night for 2 hrs. It was such a sweet conversation, the Lord has truly blessed me with some very special "Internet" friends along this journey. Therefore, tonight our family will have a special time of prayer for Kenzie, Dusty and Deacon as they await Maddox's birth.

I will post regarding Tristan again tomorrow night, thank you for understanding. Please pray for the Stanfield family and please continue praying for the specific requests (in yesterday's entry) for Tristan.

Proverbs 18:24 says: "A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother."

Bible notes: We all need friends who will stick close, listen, care and offer help when it is needed-in good times and bad. It is better to have one such friend than dozens of superficial acquaintances. Instead of wishing you could find a true friend, seek to become one. There are people who need your friendship. Ask God to reveal them to you, and then take on the challenge of being a true friend.

I am so relieved that sweet Tristan had a better night. He and your entire family are in my prayers. I have been praying but haven't been able to sign the blog. I am also praying for the Stanfield family. I found your site from www.asherandjacobsfriends.com

So good to hear that Tristan was better last night. Prayers for him continue and the same for Kenzie and Maddox. You sure do understand all that she is going through and I know that you are praying for more specifics than are ever mentioned. I am so thankful you have been there for eachother through this journey. No one should have to go it alone and I am so grateful that her support has arrived. God is so good as you know so well.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

You don't know me, but I wanted you to know I am also praying for Kenzie and Maddox and Dusty.

And I have been checking in and praying for Tristan and you since before we was born. Earlier this week I got on the computer and went to find my bookmark to your blog and found myself thinking, "Let's check in on my little buddy." I have two boys myself, and they are twins and their baby pictures are a spitting image of Tristan -- SKINNY and like cute little newly hatched birds. So now I am finding myself emotionally attaching to Tristan across the miles and wires and cables. I have been praying since he was born, begging God to show us a miracle -- of course I knew he would be a miracle, but I was praying for a medical miracle.

I don't comment much but I check in every day and want you to know I am praying for all five of you, praying for some very specific "miracles" as well as for peace, no fear, joy to fill your time together, and for you to get exactly what you need.

Lots of love from Ohio.
