September 17 8:40PM

Dear friends,
I'm so thankful for each and every one of you, you just have no idea.  You are such a blessing to me.  When I feel like I have nothing left in me to pray I know that you are praying for me and that the Holy Spirit is groaning in the presence of the Father for us.  Thank you so much David Stover for sharing your story with us it means sooo much to us & we look forward to meeting you.  We have been praying for Micah that He would see Jesus in the storms going on within him.  I know that God is speaking to him, God was not surprised by any of this and He is going to use it to glorify His name.  Micah is resting peacefully right now the most peaceful that he has been since we been here.  He and I had a good time this evening praising the Lord together.  Our eyes connected several times and he has been responding to me.  It takes everything within him to respond as he still has a feeding tube in his throat but he has really exercised his vocal chords tonight!  
As far as the tooth goes, we will have to wait and see tomorrow.  He either knocked out two or he coughed up the one in his throat.  We have one, he did have an x-ray done, but the professionals haven't seen it yet.  It seems like there may still be one in the throat, but we won't know for sure til tomorrow some time.  I'm praying that the other one, if still there will pass also (one way or the other) so that he doesn't have to have anything else put down his throat or have to be sedated again.  We sooo want to see our boy again!  To see his great dimply smile, we miss that so much.  God is good and when the time is right, we once again will see that smile.  

A big thank you to the FCS kids who sent Micah all those great cards!  I read them all to him today I did tell him though that I was not quite sure how I felt about him getting so many cards from girls!!  

We are doing well despite missing our boy.  God has been good to us all along the way.  When we need someone he always provides for our needs and when we need encouragement he sends that too.  You truly have no idea what  a source of encouragement you have been to us.  We love you all dearly even those of you we do not know.  Keep praising the Father for He is good all the time and everything He does is good.

  3. This morning shortly after I was at work, I sat down at a computer to do some work and someone had not logged off.....I glanced down and saw the words "Micah Varughese"!! ....not wanting to pry, but shocked to see this at work, I couldn't help but inquire of why this person had an email with his name on it. The reply was that it came from a sunday school class prayer list! My co-worker did not know that I knew Micah!

    Literally, prayer warriers are everywhere!

    Peace and Glory,

  4. Of all the trials we go thru in life, perhaps the worst by far is anything involving our children. As a Christian, I've oftentimes wondered how I would handle something as tramatic as you are going through. My prayer would be that I handle it with the faith that you both have. What wonderful, Christian parents Micah has. As I ponder what to write tonite, I'm only coming up with the song

    "Lord, I lift Your name on high;
    Lord, I love to sing Your praises;
    I'm so glad You're in my life;
    I'm so glad You came to save us.
    You came from heaven to earth to show the way,
    From the earth to the cross my debt to pay
    From the cross to the grave, from the grave to the sky
    Lord I lift Your name on high!"

    I wanted some great encouraging words, but this song keeps coming at me. Why? To encourage you to keep praising Him even in this? To remind us to be thankful that He is in our lives? To remind us that He is there to show the way? Or, maybe to remind us of all God's Son went through and He came out victorious? Yes...I think all of the above, but most of all to KNOW that Micah is bearing his own cross right now, but he will be VICTORIOUS! Praise God and thank you Lord for the victory to come.

    Love you guys


  5. just wanted to let you know Bethany prayers for Micah every night and most meal times. She says, "God heal Micah. Heal all his boo boos everywhere, Amen" Stay strong. His strength is perfected in our weakness, and His glory comes shining through in our darkest hour.

  6. It's midnight, and I just had to tell you, you have been on my mine the biggest part of the day, praying for you.We are neighbors and I have been to your home a couple of times and it's great to have nice neighbors like you. I do enjoy seeing the children and hearing them when they are outside playing and working in the yard.
