Life is Fragile!

Good morning sweet ladies, 

This pic was taken on July 3rd love it. Little "fufu" girl in newborn clothes.

I am writing this in the afternoon on Thursday
Ellianna is now dancing with her Jesus! Her momma just texted and said that "she is now well and safe in the arms of Jesus".

Mark said, "Thank you for your prayers. Sadly GOD took his tiniest angel today. She went peacefully in our arms. I love you Ellianna.

What a blessed little girl she was to have such precious parents. 
One blessings is that she is not hurting anymore. Her last days were very painful. Please continue to pray as they have to learn to live without her. They have poured into her life for the last 4 months 24/7.  
Thank you so much ladies for praying today. Trusting and know that our Lord knows the end of this story! May His name be lifted up as this precious family heals. He is so close to the brokenhearted. 

Mark and Hannah are needing prayer, for their sweet little one, Ellianna. Yesterday she had to have emergency surgery. Complications with the shunt. 

13 hour ago,
"Ellianna had to go back in for emergency surgery last night. There was something wrong with her shunt. It is not good". 
Seven hours Hannah said, Out of surgery and having more complications...will be headed back to the OR shortly

Three hours ago,
"Back from surgery again. Things look better, but we have some big hurdles to cross".

1 hour ago,
"If you have any rally left in you, please be on your knees...that Ellianna would stay with us on this side of eternity...or we would have the strength to watch her go".

Micah her sister said it well,
"God is our refuge and strenght, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fea, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea."
Psalm 46: 1-2

I want to get this post up fast this morning. Thank you ladies for praying. Hannah and Mark are exhausted. They have been running this race for 4 a roller coaster must be very scary for them this morning. I just felt that coming to all you precious prayer warriors we could cover their family. If you have a prayer.....leave it in the comment. They will read.

We just got this picture precious picture from Mark, Ellianna's daddy of Ellianna. She is so tiny.

 He said that she is fighting for her life. Thank you ladies who have already come this morning with your prayers on this families behalf. I texted Hannah and told her you were all praying. She was overwhelmed with thankfulness. I will keep you all posted.

Blessings, Linda

  2. Please God, be with Ellianna this day and all her days. Guide the hands that care for her. Be with her family as they wait for positive results.

  3. Please Lord, blow a breath of strength and determination into this little girl. Help her battle all her physical challenges and grow stronger by the hour. Help her family stand tall and faithfully through all these battles. Although they have never met us, let Ellianna, Micah, Mark, and Hannah feel the graces of prayers and love and well wishes surrounding them sent by so many.

  4. Dear sweet ladies, I just came in from doing farm chores.........thank you, thank you, thank you~~~~~~ for coming along side this precious family. As I read each prayer, I prayed along with. Made my heart swell with gratefulness, to be a part of the body of Christ.
    You are such precious ladies!!!!!!!!!!
    Hugs, Linda

  5. Good morning Ladies. This is Hannah's sister and Ellie's Auntie, Micah. Thank you so much for all your sweet thoughts and prayers. We are praying to the One True God who is soverign and worthy of praise! I don't know what His plan is for our Precious Ellianna, but I know that His plan is best. I simply want to hold her and protect her from pain, but I know I can't do that--only His hands are capable. As hard as it is, we must choose to release her to His mighty hands. Whether He takes her to heaven and teaches her to dance there or allows us to watch her learn to spin and sway in the arms of her Savior here on earth, I know that He is holding her and each one of us. Thank you again for joining our family on this journey. We appreciate you!

  6. "For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And THAT my soul KNOWS very well. My frame was not hidden from you, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest, parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!" Psalm 139:13-17

    May the Lord Grant you strength to endure that which He has laid before you...May your walk and witness be a testimony to all those around you...And may Ellianna's life speak of the Tender Mercies and Grace of our Great God, Lord and Savior Jesus Christ...We will be before our Lords throne in payer on behalf of your precious family...
    Gods Peace and Comfort to you this day..
    In Christ

  8. Dear Jesus, we do not always know your will or ways, but we can not help but plead for the life of this little one, Ellianna. Our hearts would hang on to her; her parents long to see her growing up healthy and strong with a love for You. Please touch Ellianna with Your healing hand and restore life into her little body. Give the doctors Your wisdom that they might be used of You to minister to her physical needs, but only in such a way as it may bring You glory and they recognize You as the One who healed.

    If it pleases You to bring her to Your side at such a tender age, be merciful, O Lord, and give her parents courage, faith, trust, strength, and Your grace to release her into Your arms while praising Your Most Holy name and with a thankful heart. Give them a special peace, knowing that either way, she is safe in Your care at all times.

    Praise be to the Lord Most High who loved us so much that He gave His only Son and knows the heartache of these parents!

  31. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the king of kings and Lord of Lords, we speak healing into this child right now. God we ask that your mighty hand would move upon this family and that Your healing power would flow from heaven. We come against the enemy who has come to steal, to kill and to destroy, and who has NO POWER over one that belongs to You. We cover this entire family in your precious blood. The blood that saves and the blood that heals. We pray that Your Holy Spirit would comfort and encourage. We ask above all else that Your will would be accomplished. And we will praise you, no matter what we see. For we trust You. In Jesus holy, holy name. Amen.

  32. Ellianna died about a half hour ago. I wrote on my post if you want to read. My heart is so sad for their precious family. I know that our Father will comfort and meet their every need. I am so thankful they know Him well. Thank you so much for all these precious prayers. They were heard and God will use them for his purposes. We can trust him for sure!

We know she is safe in Your arms, comforted, healed and free from the pain the earthly body had gone through. Her parents, who are still here Father God continue to need You, even more so now than ever before. Guide them, smooth out the crooked places and the rough patches these days ahead..amen amen amen

  44. Just letting you know that today Hannah and Mark will be picking up Jacob. Jacob was at camp while Ellianna died. He is 9, very young and this could be a real tough thing for him to deal with. They are asking for prayer that he would be protected from the enemy as they tell him. He has had some difficulties in understanding life situations. I you could again pray for them today in this, it would be so appreciated.
    Thank you again from our family and Hannah and Mark for all your sweet prayers and faithfulness to a family you don't even know. Your kindness has NOT gone unnoticed! ONe word for you all PRECIOUS! I know I use that word, but it is only when my heart is so full of gratitude!

  45. Linda I am sad for the family but I happy knowing the Lord is holding this sweet angel in His loving arms. I have never stopped praying since I first heard about Ellianna. Life is cruel but God is good. I pray for the family today and will continue to pray. Thank you for sharing this little darling baby's short journey with us. Anne
