so, no one loving us so well will ever get the full credit they deserve here on earth.  but my rescuers of the week are Jim and Janet who are both associated with the Illinois Comprehensive Health Insurance Program.  this program is a better fit for mike’s coverage than the medicaid will be and jim politely pursued an answer from me on how our insurance plans were looking.  he has spurred me on to action that i approach a bit too lazily and he has connected me with Janet who is trying to help me do anything possible to extricate myself from the medicaid situation that hospitals and social workers seem a bit too eager to push everyone into and get mike qualified for this ICHIP program which works more like the COBRA plan we have been used to.  conveniently this all should have been done, oh, maybe yesterday or last week.  now i could get frustrated or sad that i don’t have better timing but honestly, i figure if God can place the stars, dig the Grand Canyon and rise from the dead, then he can be the master of my timing, good or bad.  and besides, my rescuer Jim is taking care of the worry for me and guaranteeing that we do all possible from a human standpoint to get mike the best coverage.  so financially, we are in God’s hands and i don’t really worry and that seems to be working out ok so far.  but what do i know?  if things get bad, i will certainly be open—after all, who am i to say that’s not a reason he continues to keep so many faithfully reading our updates?  he does continue to provide heroes at every turn.  whenever i even get an urge to worry, God grabs that from me and lets me know he’ll handle that for me, too.  thanks as always for care and prayer!  he is risen indeed, michelle

    Happy Easter! I’m so glad that Jim was persistent in contacting and assisting you with insurance help (I’m assuming the “Jim” you referred to is Jim Meyer from our church, as he mentioned his contact with you on Sunday. He is so knowledgeable and helpful!) Your faithfulness and insight continue to affect and encourage so many people– you wouldn’t believe how many people ask about you daily and continue to cover you in prayer. Much love, Ben, Joy, and Lucy

    A cry of pain woke me very early this morning. Thinking it might be Mike, I began to pray and think about the suffering Mike is enduring, and of your suffering and then of Christ’s suffering and the example that he has left for us to follow in His steps. Your response of unwavering faith and praise and worship of our God is an amazing testimony of God’s power and purposes. Lives are being changed – including mine. Thank you for sharing how God is working.
    I will be praying this verse for you and Mike today
    Isaiah 40:31 But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint.

    Dear Michelle and Mike.. Easter Blessings to all of you! Coming home from church this AM and celebrating our Risen Christ! You all come into my thoughts, as you do very often, but today I just had to stop what I was doing and pray and pray for you all. You are an amazing family and inspiration to US. Thank YOU for blessing us with your faith and love. God’s Grace is infinite as shown through the Zegarski’s. We pray for your continued strength and for Mikes upcoming surgery.

    Christ is Risen Indeed!!!

    It is Easter and hope springs eternal…Our only hope comes through Him….You, dear Michelle, are His angel of mercy on earth to Mike and the best witness EVER to enduring faith in a trial….Thank you for always keeping us updated so we can continue to pray and walk figuratively alongside of you.

    I thank you for your honesty, too….You are a saint in my eyes.

    Hey Michelle,
    I got your card in the mail just the other day. How kind of you to take the time to send that. Just today I was listening to the recording of the benefit concert and am still inspired by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit that night. Wishing you a wonderful week. It was a great pleasure to meet you personally and we continue to lift you and yours up to Hiim in prayer.

    Love and prayers,
