Happy Birthday Elizabeth

Today is Elizabeth's 24th birthday.  Both of her eyes were partially open this morning for a moment. She is looking better physically every day as her face heals.  For being in a rollover car accident a week ago, Elizabeth looks extremely good.  She did have a large lesion on the back of her head that required several stitches, but other than that, just some swelling and a few superficial scratches on her face.  The swelling decreases every day and with the breathing tube removed a couple of days ago, she is looking more like the girl we know and love.

Elizabeth is about to be taken for another MRI scan. We need to be in prayer for this exam that her brain is healing and be encouraged that Elizabeth is going to continue to wake up at anytime.

PRAISE. "Thank you Lord for giving us Elizabeth 24 years ago today. Thank you for the life that she lives and the glory her life has brought you."

PRAY. "Lord please heal Elizabeth's mind.  Please allow her to wake up on your time and that she would wake up with the same personality, memory, and brain function that she had before this accident."

PRAY. "Father we pray for the MRI that Elizabeth is about to undergo.  We pray that it shows that her brain is healing and that we would be encouraged that she should wake at any moment."

PRAY. "We lift up the Parsley family to you today. How hard this day must be for them to watch their sweet girl lie unconscious in her hospital bed.  Lord we pray that they would be encouraged today and wrapped in your love."

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
Romans 8:28


  1. I'm praying too that a year from now when Elizabeth celebrates her 25th birthday that it will seem hard to imagine that she was in the hospital for this one. Thank you for keeping us updated and helping us know how to pray, Heather.

  2. Praying extra hard for Elizabeth today on her special day! God has answered so many prayers already, and I know He will continue to heal her.

  3. Praying for healing today on Elizabeth's birthday, and for strength and encouraging MRI news for her family.

  4. Happy Birthday Sweet Elizabeth!!!

    Love and prayers to you all,

    Prayers to you and your family!

  6. Happy Birthday our sweet, beautiful Aunt Lizzie! We love you very much and cannot wait to wrap our arms around you and hold you safe and close to our hearts. You are in our thoughts from the moment we wake until we say our prayers before bedtime (Teegin has a special prayer she says for you, Mimi, Paw Paw, Aunt Rae Rae, Uncle B and of course . . . Bailey, Bella & Acey). We are so proud of you Elizabeth - there is nothing you cannot do and because of this, we will patiently wait for your precious body to heal so we can once again swing in the tire swing and skip rocks across the lake!!
    We love and miss you terribly, Aimie, Billy & Teegin

  7. Happy Birthday Liz! We lift you up in prayer continuously. You are on our minds and in our hearts. We love you Bill, Chelle, and Rach.
    We love and miss you all! Bart, Rae, Will, Brett and Brady

  8. Many Blessings on this your birthday, May the Lord pour love and joy and peace.
