If you are reading this, please stop & take a moment to pray for Karlie Gill. Karlie is 3-years-old and fighting for her life at Children's Hospital in Birmingham. Karlie's mom, Kacey, & her aunt, Krissi & I went to college together and were in the same sorority & pledge class. This is such a sweet & precious family and my heart is breaking for them. A little over a week ago, Karlie was taken to the hospital in Montgomery for dehydration, diarrhea & vomiting. She was then airlifted to Children's due to kidney failure. Doctors determined that she is fighting two parasites, which has caused a condition called HUS. They have faced many challenges since the diagnoses like blood pressure issues, fever, infection, CT scans, etc... It brings tears to my eyes to think of a little child going through something that is causing them so much pain. Please pray for Karlie's healing and for the doctors & nurses who work with her. Please also pray for Karlie's family. I can't imagine what Kacey & Jason are going through and how hard it must be for Kacey not to hold her baby girl and take that pain away. Keep in your prayers Karlie's 6-year-old sister Kaylee who is back in Montgomery. I imagine that she is scared, confused & misses her mom, dad & sister. And lastly, please pray for their extended family, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. They are a very close family. Kacey's sister Krissi is keeping everyone updated while holding down the home front in Montgomery. I've been amazed at Krissi's strength. And through it all, they are using this trying time in their life as a witnessing tool, declaring their faith and trust in God. Please pray for sweet little Karlie.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
