Just wanted to share this blog post by a family who epitomizes true courage and trust in our Lord and Savior.  They have 4 little daughters, and their two youngest were diagnosed with the same rare form of Mitochondrial Disease.  Though they look like they’re doing so well physically, Addison and Audrina may not have much time left on this earth because of the nature of the disease.

This is what the parents wrote this morning:
Emotions are running high, and I would be lying if I told you my family did not feel very strongly about the candidate we voted for in this presidential election. We had some unique considerations because of the girls health problems, and reflected those in the research we did on the issues.

I’m not here to tell you who we voted for, or whether we are happy or sad at the outcome. I want to remind you all, during this tumultuous time in our nation – a time when we are almost unanimously divided – that the election is not the ultimate factor in our futures. Just as our doctors do not have the final say on our kids prognosis, our president does not have the final say on our country’s path.

We are rejoicing tonight – that our Lord and Savior has a plan for His people. The voice of reason in my head is that the next 4 years are most importantly governed by God. Your president may not have your best interest in mind, but God does. He knows the issues that are important to your family. He will provide a way for your life. Do not be caught up in the election.

Would your president lay down his life for YOU alone?

2 Chronicles 7:14
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

All our love and prayers for our country to be healed.
Adam & Kim

Please keep this precious family in your prayers.

You might be thinking, Why are you sharing this, Kerissa?  Well, every day, stories like these remind me that life is so fragile.  I’m reminded of this in my own life, also.  The headaches remind me, the leg weakness, the CRPS pain, my subluxating shoulder, etc.  In Adam and Kim’s words, I’m just so thankful that the election (as well as things like disease) is not the ultimate factor in our futures.  I’m thankful that all things are most importantly governed by God.  And I’m so thankful for Jesus Christ who laid down His life for all of us to conquer sin and death!  The earth is not my home.  Heaven is. 🙂  And I can’t wait for the time when I will one day be able to meet this amazing family there!
