Tomorrow is Izzy's fifth birthday! I can't believe it! You can read my birthday poem here.

We tried out a new church tonight. It was interesting. It was warm and I did get a good feeling there. We'll see. If you get a chance please pray for us to find a place to be... and to know it when we find it.

One interesting thing happened while at the new church tonight. We were sitting down and there was a bad wreck right outside the church. There is a big grassy area in front of the church and a helicopter flew in to take the girl hurt to the hospital. The police came to this church and asked the preacher to come and pray. He prayed over this girl who was not breathing, he said she did start breathing while they were praying and the paramedics took over. The whole church stopped and joined hands to pray for her. It was a spine chilling event. I pray that girl is okay... and wonder if I know her.

That story about the girl was amazing. I hope she is ok! Yay for Izzy's Birthday!

Happy, Happy Birthday Izzy Bear!

I love her poem and the photo is so good on her blog.

Boy, I hated to read about the wreck. I pray she is okay.

Loved reading your answers.

Enjoy the birthday!

Kat (ps...thanks again for the award...I passed it on tonight)

Wow. That's a scary thing to happen right where you are. I held a man's head off the ground to keep him from drowning in his own blood, after his motorcyle was run over by a semi on the highway. It was over two years ago and I don't think one day has gone by that his face has not come into my mind. He died on the way to the hospital and I had a really hard time dealing with that. don't know why I told you that. :)

I hope you find a good church home soon. I know how hard it is to be looking.

Susanne said...

Happy Birthday to Izzy!

Praying you're lead to the church where God wants you to be. That is quite the thing. Incredible that the police would come in and request prayer. That blows my mind.

Nancy Face said...

It was fun reading your answers! Thanks for the tag! ;)

what a sweet birthday poem for Izzy! :)

What an experience that must have been at the church...there is great power in sincere prayer. I hope she will be all right.

Karen said...

Happy Birthday for Izzy tomorrow! That is very interesting, what happened at the Church. Will pray about it for you. When I read what happened, I had a sense of excitement, not sure if it was a Karen thing or a God thing. Will check it out :-)

Penless Thoughts said...

No "accident" that the accident occured in front of the church where prayers would be!!!!! Let us know the end of the story if you can.

Happy Birthday to your sweet Izzy!!

I posted about finding a new church early when I began blogging in February because we had just had the unpleasant chore of finding a new church in December. I'll look up the link and come back and post it.

We are SOO happy with where God has chosen to place us!!! I know He has the perfect place for you and you will KNOW.

Penless Thoughts said...

P.S. Here is the link
It was title Finding The Right Church and was actually January 22nd that I posted it. This really confirmed our decision and I trust it will be a help in yours. Let me know.

Let us know if you find out how the girl is...awesome that the church body all prayed for her.
Happy birthday Izzy!

I love lime green! And wish I was good at dancing because it can be such fun & good exercise.

Haley said...

Wow, what a powerful prayer for the girl in the wreck. I pray she is ok.

I liked your meme :-)

Happy Birthday to Izzy!

Denise said...

Your answers are great!! Thanks for playin along!!! Glad to here of the great experience at church, I will definately be praying for that sweet little girl!

Dena said...

Okay - I am sad you cried! I hope you are better and you just had a moment - I will pray for you to find a church you love and can call home and what a neat story about the girl - God is so awesome!


annb said...

Where did you go to church last night? I am praying that your family will be able to find a church home where you feel that God has led you. That's so great that the whole church prayed together for the girl. I personally believe that's what should happen when someone is hurt, ill or having difficulties. I remember when I was much younger a guy from a family I worshipped with had a bad accident and was very critical. He acquired a brain injury from the accident and many of the congregation met at the church building that night to pray - for hours - for him. He did survive!
It was such a powerful and humbling event! I truly was blessed by the prayer service!

What a beautiful, touching poem!

Lauren@Baseballs&Bows said...

Happy Birthday to Izzy! I hope she has a wonderful day. So sad about the little girl, but how wonderful that everyone stopped to pray.

Jenileigh said...

Oh Annie, How awesome it is that the police came and got your pastor and asked him to pray! How awesome that she started breathing! God is so great! I will be praying for her too, keep us updated if you hear anything. Blessings today!

DJ Hartman said...

Happy Birthday to Izzy, Happy Birthday to Izzy, Happy Birthday Sweet Izzy... Happy Birthday to You!

May you be blessed today and always Ms. Izzy!

Hope you get to smile a lot today..


Loving Annie said...

You'll know it is the right Church when you feel God when the Pastor speaks....

Sarah said...

Happy birthday to Izzy, what a beautiful little girl!
Looking for a church is difficult, and I will be praying that God will lead you to the one He has marked for you. And wow - that poor girl. May God be with her and with her family.

Ribbon Rock Star said...

WOW...That gave me goosebumps. I pray the girl is ok also.

Happy Bday Izzy!!!! Have a great day.

Good luck on the new church too. I believe we will be searching for a new church home when we move.


Jill@Who Could Ask for Anything More said...

Wow- that is an amazing story about the little girl. I will be keeping you in my prayers as you look for a new church home. We went through the same thing a couple years ago.

ohamanda said...

Happy Birthday, Izzy!

oooh, I got chills just reading the story about the girl & the pastor praying!

Corrie said...

Happy B-day Sweet Izzy!!!

My word, Annie! What an experience about the accident in front of the church! Wow! I pray she is alright.

We knew our little one was far sighted because she would cross her eyes when she was trying to look at something up close. I hope the glasses will really help her out!

You have been on my mind a lot lately. Hope everything is well!

janne said...

Happy birthday, Izzy! I'm praying for you!

HomeSchool Mommy said...

Hey, did you hear that she died? I guess they had her stabilized last night, but she didn't make it. SOOOO sad! She was so young. I guess she was headed to a pool party the chuch youth group was having. Anyway, I figured you knew, but just in case...

Carrie! :o) said...

Cute meme, Annie. Thanks for the tag. Mine's up.

Coach J said...

Well, homeschool mommy answered my question. But what a priviledge to be included in the prayer circle!
I will be praying that you guys find the church body that God wants you involved with.
And, I enjoyed reading your meme.

Michelle said...

thanks for the tag! I just did this one at the end of June though :)
