Sweet Kisses....Gentle Kisses

Many years ago Kristy and I agreed the first one to leave the beginning of each day would go find the other and kiss them goodbye. When we returned the one who came in last at the end of the day would find the other and give them a kiss. We have done this for years.

Kristy read that men who received kisses before leaving for work each day lived longer, were healthier and made more money. I thought all of these were worthy reasons to join her in this practice.

Last night I was away for a few moments, I cleaned up, showered and returned to stay the night with her. When I came in the first kiss was sweet...throughout the night when the nurses came in for medications, we briefly kissed--sweet and gently. They were more precious than words can express.

Today there will be another MRI with decisions to follow. Kristy has a cloud of peace over her and is resting in a chair of strength.

All who have sent comments have comforted and encouraged our hearts. Please keep praying for her...for us.

Her husband,

You can rest in that, Milt. We'll continue to pray until Kristy is healed, and then we'll pray some more. It's amazing how the prayers of God's children can help with that cloud of peace. They empower the angels to fight in the Heavenlies.

The battle rages. Jesus IS the victor. It's done and is written. Amen and amen.

Love and cyber hugs to both of you. Give Kristy a holy kiss on her cheek for me.

With God, NOTHING is impossible. And that mean NOTHING. There are so many stories of bad reports turned around through the power of prayer. Psalm 91 states: "With long life I will satisfy you and show you my salvation." I choose to believe God's report. It may be different than the doctor's, but it is a more sure Word!

No matter what, as Christians, we ALWAYS win. Stepping from this life into the next is a victory, but I am praying that Kristy will finish her race. There is still so much more for her to do.

God bless you Milton. So many people are still lifting up you and Kristy with prayer. You are so blessed!

My husband and I (who have been happily married for 30 years) read these posts together every day. When either you or Kristy writes that your readers should pour out love on their spouses every chance they get, we take it seriously. The story of the Godly affection you and Kristy have for each other is touching lives everywhere. Thank you for sharing with us. Many, many prayers continue to be offered for you and your family.

Pastor and Kristy:

I believe God, His word says "Call unto me and I will answer." At this moment His phone line must be very busy receiving all the calls on your behalf. I know that Jesus is holding Kristy's life in His wonderful and miracles hands. I believe in miracles. Love you with all our hearts; Carlos, Rosabel, Carlos Jr. and Isabel Santiago

Dear Pastor Milton and Kristy,
I am reminded so many times about how God healed my mom from an INCURABLE disease called multiple sclerosis and how God healed me from encephalomyelitis. I know that He is still in the miracle business and we are all believing that He has the power to heal you and His will is health for you.
As I am writing this, I am thinking about some of the funny times we have shared and wanted to bring those to your memory so you can maybe laugh or at least smile. My first memory was right before you were going camping and I gave your husband some advice about electric fences. I don't think he knew what to think about me and I don't think he was expecting that from "sweet little ann". :-)
My second memory was a game of scrabble with you, chelsea and me where you had no choices other than adding "fireworks" to "date" already on the board. Chelsea and I couldn't believe that "sweet little Kristy" would write such a thing!! tee-hee!
My third and most recent memory was when you all were remodeling the dining room area (i think) in your new home. You told me that a wall was going to come down so I asked if I could use a hammer on the wall and have some fun. You all just let me go with it. I can see you now hammering on the devil's head and showing him that he is under your feet!!! Whose report will you believe?? WE SHALL BELIEVE THE REPORT OF THE LORD!!!!
We are praying and believing with you all and know that God is still in control no matter what comes your way!
We love you dearly!
Howard and Ann

Hello Kristy and Milton,
Know that today you are loved; not only by God, but also by many many people whose lives you have touched. We are believing God with you for a miracle. God still works miracles!

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Milton, Thank you for inspiring us each day being Kristy's conduit to the rest of us. All, when I know your heart is aching. It's okay to ache and still trust God for what He knows is best.
I went through my best friend's bout with ovarian cancer four years ago and still cherish the last week of her life when she ministered to me more than I could ever minister to her. I beleive that the day before He took her home, God lifted the curtain on heaven for a peek at where she would soon go. She beamed and looked me in the eye saying, "Today. It's wonderful." She never told me what she was talking about but I know. It didn't happen that day, but the next. It is my fervant prayer that God will heal our dear Kristy, but we know if He doesn't she's going to a far better place than here.

I only met Kristy once in person when she came to ACFW's first conference in Kansas City. I remember sitting on a sofa in the hotel lobby and chatting. I thought she looked so perfect. Immacuately groomed, not a hair out of place, make-up just so. But, what I've learned in the years since then through emails and her blog is that she is a hoot and I am so glad I've had the honor of knowing that side of her. May the Lord be with you all as you face this storm with Him.
