Please pray for Elizabeth. Pray that she would be encouraged and motivated. She has made wonderful progress, but she is still in need of healing. At times it is hard that her life is completely different today than it was just a few months ago.

Please keep the entire Parsley family in your prayers. They are going through some valleys at this time! In addition to Elizabeth's accident, a close family friend has become ill and Bill and Michelle are caring for him at their home. Rachel has also been sick and needs our prayers for healing. Elizabeth has therapy every day and it can be exhausting. Mentally she can become discouraged and physically drained.

Our God is faithful! If you are friends with Elizabeth on facebook, you probably know of the way that she continues to encourage people by constantly posting her favorite Bible verses. 2 months ago we did not know the function that Elizabeth would have at this point... my heart rejoices every time I see her post! Please give thanks to God for all He has and is going to continue to do in the life of Elizabeth.

Please lift Becca in your prayers today as well. The wounds on her leg are having some trouble healing and she is still on a vac and infection is still a concern. Pray that these wounds would heal completely!

PRAISE. For God's grace and faithfulness.
PRAISE. For the life of Elizabeth. For the way her life has impacted others.
PRAY. Pray for Elizabeth. Pray for her complete healing, her encouragement, a positive attitude and hope for the future.
PRAY. Pray for the wounds on Becca's leg to heal and that she wouldn't have any other issues with infection.

The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
Psalm 126:3

  2. Elizabeth and family-I am still your praying neighbor :) You do not know me, but I am here and if you need me please let me know how I can help you..for now I will continue to pray everytime I see your house, when I open and close my blinds and when God leads.

  3. Dear E, my sister in Christ, I am praying for you daily, my hopes are high for you to find contentment, peace, and fulfillment during this trying season, please be encouraged every day is a successful day, there may be different levels or degrees of success on each day. One step at a time dear one, one day at a time. Even though this season is different, God is working thru you, He is working with you, let your heart be filled with song. Prayers.

  4. Proverbs 16:3
    Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.
    Dear E, I know there must be difficult days, I am so very sorry for this struggle, for this unexpected detour in your life. I do believe your heart belongs to Our Creator and Our Savior, but we are human we can get frustrated with our circumstances especially when it is a result of not our actions but someone elses. I know your mind is made up to love and serve Our God, but every therapy day-commit your works to Him, and only He can give you peace of mind during this storm, and it may not come instantly, being patient is so very hard some times, please do not get discouraged dear one, press on honey just press on daily. I am praying for your full recovery emotionally, mentally, pshycologically, medically, physically, and all of our spirtual lives to be strengthened. I pray these trying issues will be resolved and dissolved from your life. Jan in MO

  5. Psalm 55:16-17
    As for me, I WILL CALL UPON THE LORD (who is worthy to be praised) AND THE LORD SHALL SAVE ME. Evening and morning and at noon will I pray...for E, for Elizabeth, for Liz ..what ever name you prefer, I will be praying for YOU, Liz Beth! vs 22 Cast thy burden (and your worries) UPON the Lord, and HE shall Sustain thee:
    Dear One, I can only imagine that you would prefer not to just sustain, or endure but to Overcome, that is all of our prayers for you, but if today is another day of sustaining, know and never forget, He is sustaining you thus far. Just KEEP walking in the light, as He IS the light...1 John 1:7 I rejoice Dear E that you live your life as one that loves Our Lord and are not ashamed, that is a gift! This is the race you are in right now and I pray you will Champion OVER it!! And Soon. Love and Prayers. Jan in MO:)

  6. Dear E, Hope you have had a happy, enjoyable and restful weekend and again felt like gathering with fellow Christians to study God's word and sing His praises, where your heart, mind and body can be renewed for the coming week.

    Phil 4:8 Finally, brethen, whatsoever things are True, whatsoever things are Honest, whatsoever things are Just, whatsoever things are Pure, whatsoever things are Lovely, whatsoever things are of Good Report; if there be any Virtue, and if there be any Praise, Think on THESE things.

    My prayer is for you to be filled up with Encouragement, Contentment, Satisfaction, Peace, Joy, Happiness, Good Cheer, No fears, No tears No bitterness. What a Big rejoicing Day it will be-all over many states, when you have accomplished and mastered all your therapy exercises and am once again living your normal life!!! Prayers are with You. Much Love. Jan in MO
