Removing the machines

The last visitors have just come back to the waiting room from saying good-bye to Janie Beth. Joey and Michelle are back with their precious little girl. At this time, the staff is removing all machines. This most definitely will be very difficult. Please pray!

    Tanya Bentley

  7. Praying for Janie Beth, you and your family. I read and responsed to a prayer request on Rapture Ready Prayer forum and clicked on the link included. I live in Huntsville, AL as well.

    I know your hearts must be breaking, but from reading your posts, I know your faith in our Father will sustain you. Janie Beth will be resting in the arms of our wonderful savior Jesus soon and you will all be reunited soon.



  8. "I am Jesus' little lamb
    Ever glad at heart I am
    For my Shepherd gently guides me
    Knows my needs and well provides me
    Loves me every day the same
    Even calls me by my name!

    Who so happy as I am,
    Even now the Shepherd's lamb?
    And when my short life is ended
    By His angel hosts attended
    He shall fold me to His breast
    There within His arms to rest."
    (Christian Worship, Hymn 432)

    Amen. (Janeen from the Fishbowl)

  9. Belonging to the communion of saints means being connected with all people transformed by the Spirit of Jesus. This connection is deep and intimate. Those who have lived as brothers and sisters of Jesus continue to live within us, even though they have died, just as Jesus continues to live within us, even though he has died.

    We live our lives in memory of Jesus, the saints, and especially sweet little Janie Beth and this memory is a real presence. Jesus and his saints are part of our most intimate and spiritual knowledge of God. They inspire us, guide us, encourage us, and give us hope. They are the source of our constant transformation. Yes, we carry them in our bodies and thus keep them alive for all with whom we live and work. I know she will be with us always, only in a different way. To be known through our hearts and spirits.
    Love you and praying for the pain to ease,
    Heart of Wisdom

  10. Michelle, keeping you all close in prayer. Janie Beth is beautiful, as are all of your children. God is near to all of you, and we are adding our prayers and sending our love, along with everyone else. Lee and Marybeth, NH (PW website.)

  11. Michelle, continuing to pray for you and Sweet Janie Beth. God always has her in his hands, here or in Heaven with Him.

  12. Sending many thoughts, prayers and hugs your way.

  13. A friend of Marybeth's. A dear friend of mine just lost her 15 year old daughter on Christmas to Juibert's disease. This was brought up and it seemed so fitting. I believe it also fits you all.

    from Away in a Manger . . . Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
    Close by me forever, and love me, I pray.
    Bless all the dear children in thy tender care,
    And take us to heaven, to live with Thee there."

    Prayers for all of you!
    Kristy B

  14. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Sending many hugs to you all.
