Coolest Thing Ever!



I could not wait to tell everyone this awesome thing that happened yesterday. After seeing beautiful little Cynthia for the first time at the hospital two days ago, I put in a call to my nephew in LA. He is currently taking acting classes and trying to get into tv, print, or movies. Knowing that Matt has had the opportunity to meet a lot of the sweet girls and boys on Disney Channel, I wanted to see if there was any way he could get an autograph for Cynthia from someone he knows. I would never want to impose, but I felt there was such an urgency with this child and I knew it would lift her spirits. I called my sister and she relayed the message to Matt. He was brought to tears and immediately made a few calls. I wasn't sure what he would come up with, but anything would be a nice gesture. Well, let's just say Matt came through big time! Yesterday afternoon while lying in her hospital bed, Cynthia got a call from Aly and AJ. For those of you who do not have cable or children between the ages of 5 and 16, you may not know who they are. They are singers, songwriters, musicians, and actresses that are constantly seen on the Disney Channel. They not only called Cynthia, they got out their guitars and sang a song for her. And here is the best part, they prayed with her over the phone. These are Christian girls! I think I am going to go buy their Christmas Album right now. I went to see Cynthia last night at the hospital and to say that she had a huge smile on her face about her call would be a big understatement. Her 19 yr.old sister was there to stay the night with her, and said that Cynthia is usually so shy and never talks to strangers, but she was talking her heart out to Aly and AJ. How cool is that? I didn't even know this little girl 3 days ago and now she is in my prayers and thoughts constantly. Our church family is bringing them meals, visiting daily, and praying like crazy. Cynthia has captured our hearts. Cynthia also has a twin sister, a 19 yr. old sister, a 9 yr. old sibling and a 7 yr. old sibling (not sure if boys or girls). Thanks to each and everyone of you who have prayed and continue to pray. Skip, my hubby, said that I should never go to Africa if I get this attached to one sick child. I would probably never leave. Lastly, I want to just praise God for all He is doing in this family and all those involved in helping her.

That is just great to hear. How awesome!
I have a friend a work who is going through a hard time and I and gave her a religous card today with some encouarging words and it almost brought her to tears. So I know the feeling when God puts it in your heart to pray for someone. And I have felt that with this girl at work to pray for her. I have only know her a couple of months.
Thanks for sharing what you have done for this little girl. It really is great what you were able to do for her.

It is so amazing what God will do when we respond in obedience to those little "urges" we get. Bless you for your tender, obedient heart. All of you are in our prayers as you bless and are blessed.

This just makes my heart want to burst! I, of course, have no idea who AJ an Ali are, but I am going to take from this that they are cool. =)

Continuing to pray for Cynthia.

Oh, Susie, that just brings so much joy to my heart. God put you in her life for a reason and she is so blessed to have someone go above and beyond to bless her, as you have done. She will forever have been touched by your sweet kind heart. Your nephew is pretty sweet too.

That's the coolest phone call she'll be getting for awhile. I suppose my equivalent at that age would have been a phone call from Fonzie/Richie or Donnie/Marie Osmond. If Skip ever has a hip revision, have Matt get Simon Le Bon to call him.
