Cherubs on Their Way:
Cherub Ruben A, due 2/24 - a prayer request from his grandma: "Asking for prayer for peace as my daughter Tanya is 37 1/2 weeks, had their surgical meeting yesterday with the doctor - hard news with the added heart problems and all the pulmonary hypertension, were told that needs to be way under control for the CDH surgery to even be performed. The waiting and unknown is so hard. She and my son in law are trying to keep their sights set on Christ knowing that little Ruben is in His hands. The room is already for little cherub Ruben for that one day when he will come home. I have set up a prayer chain with family and friends for the first 24 hours of his life since they have said that is a very crucial time. Thank you for being here and for all the prayers. For Tanya even to see little Ruben's name on the list of cherubs is comforting. We are praying for all the families and cherubs."
Cherub Noah A., due 5/30
Cherub Ian H., due 4/26

"Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe." -Gail Devers
"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." -Howard Thurman
"We're so busy watching out for what's ahead of us that we don't take time to enjoy where we are." -Calvin & Hobbes quote
"Life is so generous a giver, but we, judging its gifts by their covering, cast them away as ugly, or heavy, or hard. Remove the covering, and you will find beneath it, a living splendor, woven of love, by wisdom, with power. Welcome it, grasp it, and you touch the angel’s hand that brings it to you. Everything we call a trial, a sorrow, or a duty, believe me, that angel’s hand is there, and the wonder of an overshadowing presence. Our joys too; be not content with them as joys. They, too, conceal diviner gifts." -Fra Giovanni Giocondo
