CAN YOU FLY A KITE?


Milton, here for Kristy:

Kristy had another good day. She was up in our family room again and has enjoyed being where the action is.

Last night when she was ready to go to the bedroom, she asked, "Ya'll aren't going to party now are you?" She didn't want to miss anything.

By the way, that was a great kiss!

See that string hanging off that picture? It looks like a kite flying on the wall. Actually it is a Kristy creation. She sewed a cover for the cord hanging down from the light for the painting. What else can this woman do? Only God knows.


She is experiencing more confusion and works hard at staying alert and involved. It is very difficult for her and for us.

Yet, God is good.

Dear Pastor Milton & family,

How great to see Kristy sitting up, joining in the family activities...And still giving her beloved "great kisses."

The cover Kristy sewed for the cord is just lovely. She really is filled with God's creativity and talent. I'm wondering if the Lord will put Kristy in charge of interior decorating heavenly mansions. Because if Kristy gets to heaven before me, I want my name on her client list.

We continue to pray that the Lord's peace, joy, and love fill your home and hearts to overflowing. "Joy the world can't give and the world can't take away."

Our love & prayers always,
Nancy & family

Hey "George & Gracie", it's Friday but Sunday is a'comin!

Thank God for another day. He is faithful to do what He says He will do.

"And His name through faith in His name hath made this man strong..." Acts 3:16

I pray you have a great day and that the Glory of the Lord will rise up within you.

Keep smiling! The Joy of the Lord is your ticket!

Milton & Kristy, I am still praying for God's healing touch. I am an AWSA sister to Kristy, although we have never met or talked, not even in email. When I read her story last Sunday I was filled with such a great longing to pray for her healing. It just so happens my first book was based on the incredible miracles God STILL gives us today. As I pray for Kristy, a visual of the cneturian asking Jesus to heal his servenat comes to mind. That was great faith (unlike anyone around), I am believing that way for her. Some day, I will share how God found me, saved me and transformed my life like ONLY HE COULD! Since that fateful day in June of 1999 I have lived my life and practiced by faith believing that God does show up in the final hour to bless us with miracles. In my heart, I am believing that He will answer the prayer to heal Kristy and leave her here with you and with us a while longer. What is a dozen years to the Lord? Not but a grain of sand, He is a generous and loving God and I am BELIVING for you that He will let her stay a little while longer. I pray I can meet Kristy some day in person. She has inspired me so greatly through her faith during this valley that I can't put into words how much I feel a connection with her. Please, tell kristy a sister in TN thinks and prays for her all day, each day, beliving we'll get to meet on earth soon. My love to you from the Great Smoky mountains of east TN.

Just when I need Him, Jesus is near,
Just when I falter, just when I fear;
Ready to help me, ready to cheer,
Just when I need Him most.

Just when I need Him most,
Just when I need Him most,
Jesus is near to comfort and cheer,
Just when I need Him most.

Just when I need Him, He is my all,
Answering when upon Him I call;
Tenderly watching lest I should fall,
Just when I need Him most.

Just when I need Him most,
Just when I need Him most,
Jesus is near to comfort and cheer,
Just when I need Him most.

Just when I need Him, Jesus is strong,
Bearing my burdens all the day long;
For all my sorrow giving a song,
Just when I need Him most.

Just when I need Him most,
Just when I need Him most,
Jesus is near to comfort and cheer,
Just when I need Him most.

Just when I need Him, He is my all,
Answering when upon Him I call;
Tenderly watching lest I should fall,
Just when I need Him most.

Just when I need Him most,
Just when I need Him most,
Jesus is near to comfort and cheer,
Just when I need Him most.

Praying fervently for your family!

I have enjoyed staying a "part"of your lives -- even though I mostly lurk and don't comment. I have been praying for you as you walk this bumpy journey. Yes, God is good. I love how you keep reminding all of us, and especially Kristy, of this marvelous truth.

Ooooh, I loved your harmony around Kristy's bedside as you sang "Calvary". The
C-H-R-I-S-T-I-A-N! song was the best, though! Yes, I could see Kristy's lips move during the song. She is a fighter from the word go! Love her wonderful spirit!

Hugs and continued blessings on your lives!

Hi Uncle Milton & Aunt Kristy (and Jennifer, Julie and all the grands!),

Just want to let you know that we are still praying and loving you across the miles. We know our Heavenly Father is walking alongside you on this rough road, and we pray for His continued peace to surround you each day.
Thanks for keeping the blog so well-updated. We check it often - and shed lots of tears - and appreciate knowing how to pray.
our love and God's blessings,
Kevin & Robin McGee & family

Just had to share that I babysat my six year old granddaughter last week, and I lost the keys. I began to look and Hailey reminded me, "GaGa, have you prayed and asked God to show you where those keys are?" She learned that from me, because I'm always praying to find things . . . oh, those senior moments . . . too bad I had them when I was younger too! Ha! Anyway, we prayed together that we would find the keys and I literally found in less then a a couple of seconds. Hailey looked at me with those big blue-green eyes and said, "Wow! GaGa, can you teach me how to get God to pay attention to me and my prayers that fast?" What followed was a wonderful mini-teaching on prayer. I know how much Kristy loves her grandkids so just wanted to share this! Love and Blessings!
Susan Wales - who's still praying for a miracle for Kristy Dykes!
