3/26 11:15 p.m. (Letter from Michelle to all)

There is no way to explain the peace I feel. From the world's perspective this is all a horror. But I feel like singing so much of the time. Only from the vantage point of eternity do I know that this is merely a moment. And so I know that God has charge. Still he encourages us to bring our requests straight to his "throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need" Hebrews 4:16.  This week has given me a glimpse of the church, the body of believers united in spirit, formidable in prayer as we claim God's promises for healing this Michael of mine.

THANK YOU for your persistence in prayer which Rev. 5:8, 8:4 compares to incense. I know God is enjoying the smell his people are cooking up. He is a sweet God and every day I am reminded that his grace is sufficient for me. Each and every one of you is his tool. Love has become tangible in wagonfuls of cereals and snacks, endless meals, flowers, gifts, cards, verses, notes (and love wraps me in a special quilt). The verses and hymns you share feed me even more than the yummy treats delivered. I struggle to think of any unmet need when flooded with requests to help.

 God is at work. Undeniably in Mike. Obviously surrounding me. And hopefully in each of you as you suffer and rejoice with us as the indispensable, invaluable body of Christ! Each name signed reminds me of a memory and lifetime of blessing. I will never be able to thank you all for the abundance. But know that you deliver grace, laughter, joy and gratitude with each word. You point me back to the Savior even when I am tired or covered in my daughter's vomit.

And don't forget he is called the Savior for a reason. I wait in eager expectation for God to deliver him home to us to dance with McKaela, to supervise Eli's tummy time, and (God forbid I admit I could ever miss it) to harass me back into my Pilates schedule.

Love, peace and hope,

Michelle z
