A tender mercy from our Heavenly Father we want to share

We all experience blessings and tender mercies from the Lord each day. These last few weeks our family has felt many and our hearts are full from all of your prayers and faith in our behalf. The Lord has truly kept his promise when he tells us that he will lighten our load, whenever it seems too heavy for us to carry, he picks us up and brings us through. We have probably had the hardest week of our families lives this week. It is a great blessing to be here at Craig Hospital but we are very homesick for all of you, and our emotions are being tested, along with our strength. Cord says "It is flat out tough"!
The other night we were reading the scriptures around Josh's bed. We were passing the scriptures from person to person and it came Josh's turn to read we were in Enos. Enos was praying unto the Lord to preserve the record of their people. The Lord told Enos, "Whatsoever thing ye shall ask in faith, believing that ye shall receive in the name of Christ, ye shall receive it. And I had faith, and I did cry unto God that he would preserve the records and he covenanted with me that he would bring them forth unto the Lamanites in his own due time".
We are so grateful that we are able to pray unto the Lord asking in faith, believing that He knows who we are and our needs and will meet them, in His own due time. As a family we find great strength in the phrase "In His own due time".
Josh says to everyone that asks "what they can do" and he says "read your scriptures daily and continue to pray". We are all so grateful for your faithfulness and feel of the blessings daily that it is bringing to our family. Much love from, Cord, Lisa, Josh, Jacob, Justin, Marne' & Colton
