Global "Heart" Warming

While scientist argue in front of the media about global warming and politicians select their best climate change strategies to earn another 4 year free ride on the tax payers pocketbook, one type of global warming has certainly occurred; a global heart-warming. E-mails and Facebook messages have rolled in from around the globe. Adults, children, and couples of all ages are cheering for Emma. Hits on the blog and the charity she inspired (www.emmashugs.com) have sky rocketed. Emma is loved around the entire Earth.

The stories of new found hope, restored marriages, improved relationships with children and faith in God have one at a time begun to smudge out the face of Death. It is replaced with a picture of love and peace and that is what life is truly about. The toothpaste tube analogy this morning may have thrown some for a loop, but I have long said life on Earth is so temporary that the ever giving toothpaste tube is the closest thing we understand to eternity.

We are thankful for the crowds that are packing the sidelines of Emma's race. She is hosting the ultimate charity run and she is running off of the crowds enthusiasm. How awesome it is that she has a global fan base who will explode in excitement as she crosses the finish line, one that truly understands her accomplishments. She will hear the cheers and smile.

We are humbled that God entrusted us with such a world-moving being as Emma. We are thankful He has used her as such a mighty tool. We are challenged to bring her honor and Him glory, for each are worthy.

Little Em is tired. Her heart rate ranged from 130-200 today. Her color is better than yesterday and she is resting peacefully. Friends continue to bless our home. Our cup runneth over.

  2. I wish I could have know Emma, even just met her once. I only know that she has touched my life in a profound way. She has brought about prayer for me, something I haven't done much of since I lost my son.


    She is special, that one. she is truly special. I hope you both know how much you are loved and prayed for.

  4. I pray that you and your family will find peace in all the hurt and misunderstanding. I haven't prayed much since I lost my mother at age 12. Now that I am 29 and have my own daughter, and have read about Emmas journey, I will pray. I wish I would have been able to meet this little angel who has forever changed my life. She is so lucky to have such a wonderful family...that is why she is holding on so long...God bless you all!

  8. I am praying for your family and have been touched by the amazing life of your Emma. It is such a blessing that a life is measured not by length but by breadth, not by the number of days but by the number touched by those days. Emma's life is one of incomparable strength, dignity, and grace. She lived, and she will win the race on her own terms. I am honored to have shared a small part of this journey even without ever officially meeting her.

  15. Found your blog yesterday. Was able to pray for her, for you as I was up in the middle of the night with my speical one. What a beautiful testimony you guys are of His loving kindness in the midst of a storm. The evidence of giving Him the glory through all of life is so evident here. The fruit of that is written all throughout the comments here! Clearly, you guys are not alone. Pray that brings great comfort today and in the days and months to come.

  17. Christy & Kelvin, I was thinking and praying for you again this morning and the words to John Waller's song came to my mind and heart as I thought about your faithful journey these last so difficult months. You have done just what these lyrics express in your love and care for sweet Emma and the road it has taken you on. Because of your dedication to your Lord and Savior, you and Emma are touching more lives than you could ever imagine! For reasons none of us understand, God chose Emma and your family for such a painful, heart-wrenching mission, but YOU ALL have been faithful beyond measure, and have chosen to have Jesus as your guide, enduring your suffering as He did on the cross! How just and complete will your reward be when you no longer have to wait, but will safely be on the glorious streets of heaven and safely in His loving arms!
    I'm waiting
    I'm waiting on You, Lord
    And I am hopeful
    I'm waiting on You, Lord
    Though it is painful
    But patiently, I will wait

    I will move ahead, bold and confident
    Takeing every step in obedience
    While I'm waiting
    I will serve You
    While I'm waiting
    I will worship
    While I'm waiting
    I will not faint
    I'll be running the race
    Even while I wait

    I'm waiting
    I'm waiting on You, Lord
    And I am peaceful
    I'm waiting on You, Lord
    Though it's not easy
    But faithfully, I will wait
    Yes, I will wait
    I will serve You while I'm waiting
    I will worship while I'm waiting
    I will serve You while I'm waiting
    I will worship while I'm waiting
    I will serve you while I'm waiting
    I will worship while I'm waiting on You, Lord
    love to you, jeanine adams
