Answer to Prayer for Alyssa

On Wednesday, I posted a prayer for all 3 of my sister-in-laws, especially Alyssa, who had to go to the hospital yesterday for a blood transfusion of 2 units of blood.

I believe that we should always remember to post the answers that God gives us!

Answer to our prayer:
Alyssa is doing well today. She feels so much better. She slept all night for the first time in a long time, and woke up rested for the first time in a long time.
She has been exhausted all school year, always felt cold and out of breath. She thought she was just exhausted from being a 1st grade teacher, pastor's wife, and mom to a busy daughter who was a senior in high school and a son who was in the 8th grade and he was having a difficult year. The whole family had a difficullt year the year before. They live in Shawnee and drive to Okc. for church, and Danny drives there every day, including a lot of Saturdays, where he is pastor. That would be enough to exhaust anyone.

God was watching out for Alyssa when she scheduled her regular exam for this past week. If she had gone to Falls Creek, without a blood transfusion, being Anemic and her thyroid not working could have caused her to get very sick there.

I am so glad that she is feeling better!


  1. Hi Sandy,
    As I was reading your profile I couldn't believe all that we had in common. I was brought up in a Christian home and got saved at 6. My husband and I also got married at 19! Weird...huh? Anyway thanks for signing up to follow along on my blog. It was nice to "meet" you.
