Dearest friends and loved ones...I had a bit of energy today and wanted so much to expend it on all of you. Please know that I continue to be sustained by your love, prayers, support and your generous giving...your hearts of love and concern are all treasures to me and my family. My prayer for you today is that regardless whether you are riding high on the wings of blessing right now or find yourself in a deep dark valley that you would know that everywhere you are the love of God your creator is with
you. He tells us,..."whoever seeks me with all their heart will find me..." Sometimes we are so weak we can't seem to find the strength to even seek after Him, it is in these times He seeks after us. He will leave the whole flock He tends to go after His lost little lamb. His love for you is un-ending finding it's full expression in the offering of His Son's life for yours. His gift to you of life everlasting, His provision to those who place their trust and hope in Him. It is my prayer for us all today that we would hold very lightly to those things temporary and passing, to the cares, the set backs, the ups-and downs of life's circumstances and that we would all hold on tightly to those things that are eternal. Forgiveness, love expressed when we consider our friend, our spouse, our child as more precious, more valuable then ourselves, our own needs. As we do this God meets our needs in a deep profound and supernaturally way. Don't manipulate, use, or ill think of anyone, do good to all, be bright lites in a world filled with incomprehensible darkness and pain. We must at times allow our protective bubbles to be burst now and then to know the deep treasures found only in a place of great need and the touch of the love of God. Again, no matter where you are, His love is there. Give your heart to the lover of your soul and He will empower your life today in marvelous ways and victories felt to just always be slightly out of your reach will be yours and when you face the end of self your hope will swell from the knowledge of the great gift of eternal life, the ultimate weapon against death and fear...we can rest our heads in the hands of the author and giver of life who freely gives new life now and forever for all who call on His name. I face the hope of more life here on earth as we wait for bone marrow tests May 12 and an answer on the 13th...regardless God has prepared my heart to live for Him with razor-like crispness and re-newed focus should He choose, but also to die a warrior for Him, leaving nothing on the table but being being thoroughly used up for His good and perfect will. May the God of all life bless your life today, encourage, even re-create you, give you power to overcome, victories, a sense of great value and worth...for you posses the ability to reflect His divine glory. Go for it! My love for you can not be expressed in I pray God's Spirit presses this love into your hearts for me.

On behalf of myself and my family...inexpressible gratitude for all the blessings you have poured out.

In my deepest sense of love

Wow Kit! What a powerful message to us all. I felt I was reading an epistle of Paul as he exorts the saints to a closer walk with Jesus and an appreciation for the life He has given to us. I so glad your stronger today and I am praying daily for your complete healing. God has used your situation powerfully to minister in so many ways to the body of Messiah and to draw unbelievers into a relationship with our God. I love you and I love Jesus for what He is doing through your life.

ALOHA KIT Just finished reading your message and it felt like you were still giving the word to your flock, feeding us for the upcomming week. It would be typical of you to remember us now and always. Your past few words have been so powerful! You and family are so deeply in our prayers. I would also tell you we were married on the 13th it has always been a good number, over 32 years of many good things happening on that day. You can be sure we will be praying waiting to hear word.

Thank you for your powerful words Kit, both in your blog and in the auidio message that you sent to all of us at Hope Chapel. It was so great to hear your voice again. When your message was played this morning at service, I can't tell you how moving it was for all of us. We miss you and love you so much. We will continue to pray with all of our hearts for you Kit, and for your beloved family. You are still ministering to us, even from your hospital bed. I am so glad that you feel the love of your congregation, and we feel yours too. Thank you so much. You are such an inspiration to us and we are forever changed. God bless you!

Dearest Lauers,
Hello to you all!
Kit thanks so much for your love and care, ever guiding and pointing the way to Jesus. Your words today ministered to me and I'm grateful to you for being so faithful to share. It was also good to hear your voice on the recording played at Friday night service...we miss you! We continue to pray for you all. I had a mental image the other day of the Lord enveloping your family in His love and care the way we wrap ourselves up in a cuddly blanket...
Love and big hugs to you.
Randy & Julie O.

hey kit,

It's your nephew. Just wanted you to know I'm thinking of you always, praying for you constantly, hoping you are comforted in any way you can be, and sending the love of myself and everyone around me. We all miss you so much. My mom's coming back this week with my sister. I'm so glad she got to be with you for a while. My prayer for you today is for strength and comfort. I hope you feel them. I love you.
