Today’s Tender Mercy

26 May 2011

    This morning when Tyler woke up, after an almost perfect night, we both were discussing that it had been almost sixteen hours since he had thrown up.  I was so happy that he finally was able to keep some food down.  He matter-of-factly told me that he had been texting with Bishop Dutton yesterday and told him that he hadn’t been able to keep anything down.  Our sweet bishop told him that he would pray right then for Tyler to be able to stop throwing up.  Coincidence?  We all know better.  I had no idea that those two have been texting each other.  Tyler knew all along that the prayers of our sweet bishop would work. 

   What a lesson today for me to be more specific in my prayers.  So far, I have been pretty general about my prayers for Tyler to be healed from this cancer.  I know Heavenly Father is listening, but I also realize now more than ever that Heavenly Father stands ready to answer even the smallest of requests.  Our family will now pray for specifics all along the journey – being so grateful for His hand in our lives all along the way. 

   I cannot express enough thanks for the love and kindnesses shown to our family the past two weeks.  Thank you will never be enough.  We will forever be changed by this journey and have no doubt that our Heavenly Father is with us every step of the way.  Please know how much we love you all!
