2:00 Update

This is Angie’s friend, Jessica. I will be updating this blog on behalf of Angie in the days ahead. You each have become so important to her. Thank you for your prayers, kind words and interest in Audrey’s story. None of it is taken for granted.

Angie and Todd will be arriving to the hospital today around 2 pm central time. Her c-section is scheduled for 4 pm. Please be praying for these next hours of preparation – for Angie, Todd and her family, as well as for the medical staff that will be caring for Angie and Audrey.

Angie’s friend and Audrey’s namesake, Audra, spoke with Angie this morning and said that Angie is doing very well, all things considered. She was very calm and peaceful. Todd shared a similar report with me about an hour ago.

I will do my best to update again soon. Thank you again for your prayers.

Peace,
Jessica

    Angie,

    you have been on my mind all day. I’ll keep praying until God stops reminding me of you and Todd and your prescious children.

    May God open the floodgates of peace and strength as you go through the days ahead

    Thank you so much for the update. I am on pins and needles for her – wondering what is happening and what is to come. She has written her story so beautifully and honestly that I am sure I speak for more than just myself – I can feel it with her. She is such a sweet soul and beautiful person – I know the Lord has something special going on behind the scenes. I just wish we could see it :)

    Love to all from WV,

    Prayers from Texas for everyone involved in today’s happenings. I prayed that the Smith’s would encounter peace and calmness as this afternoon approaches and unfolds in only His way. I thank Jesus for this family and how generous and genuine they have been to share this chapter of their life. I will never be the same as I have drawn strength from their story. God is in control and we don not see it at this moment but there is and will be glory to be shown in the days ahead. Thank you for living out your faith for all of us to gleam from each day.

    I’m praying like crazy… I wish they didn’t have to go through this… but I know that God will do so much through this tragedy that will just blow their minds. It’s so awful to go through these things… but I know first-hand the beauty that God can make arise from the ashes. It’s hard… VERY hard… but God is still beautiful nonetheless thoughout it all and afterward.

    Though my family has never met yours, we want you to know we are in prayer for your family. Our hearts grieve with you, and we pray that if it is not Gods will to heal Audry on this earth, that He will hold you ever so close…and that Glory WILL be brought to HIM through this…and that you will be able to see that. Three years ago, doctors said our sweet little girl would never live. I gave her over to Jesus, and prayed. The Lord saw fit to leave her here. May the Lord hold you…please know we are praying..

    You don’t know me… I am one of Daeon’s oldest childhood friends… I just read your blog. I don’t know the whole story, but know that you and your family are being covered in prayer. Where the rest of us are utterly helpless, He is able. It is in His hands… Your daughter will be safe and protected…

    Thanks Jessica for providing all of us these updates. I have been in prayer most of the day, for several people, but I cannot shake the Smith family from floating to the top of my list repeatedly. I cannot imagine what they are facing and yet we know our God is faithful through good times and bad. Praying that God’s will be done and that He will be glorified in all of this.

    Blessings to all, comfort to the entire Smith family.

    Wow…the fact that there is a new comment on here almost every time I click “refresh” tells me that the Holy Spirit is burdening so many hearts to pray for your family! I remember Pastor Scott’s sermon about the Holy Spirit “groaning” for us to the Father when we don’t know how to pray. I am clinging to that promise as I lift you up today, trusting that my feeble prayers are being multiplied and “translated” to the Father, so that He hears His perfect will being asked of Him. *Romans 8:26…In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. 27And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will. *

    Much, much love to you.

  • StrawberryParfait

    Praying…for peace…for God’s will…for His comfort….just for Him to be with you and wrap you and your child in His love.

    My mom has always told me sometimes God needs special moms for His special missions in this life. She wasn’t sure when my sister and I were born if my sister would live. God chose to loan her to use for 24 yrs before He took her home to heal her there. I know you may not have that much, but the pain and truth are the same…God loves you and her…and He is the Lord over all things and will heal her here or there.

    I pray that if it is God’s will to keep your little girl with Him, that He will send His comforter to help you and your family though this season.

    It’s hard to stand on shifting sand
    It’s hard to shine in the shadows of the night
    You can’t be free if you don’t reach for help
    You cant love if you dont love yourself

    There is HOPE when my faith runs out
    Cause I’m in better hands now

    It’s like the sun is shining when the rain is pouring down
    It’s like my soul is flying though my feet are on the ground
    So take this heart of mine there’s no doubt
    I’m in better hands now

    I am strong all because of You
    I stand in awe of every mountain that You move
    Oh I am changed, yesterday is gone
    I am SAFE from this moment on

    There’s NO fear when the night comes ’round
    I’m in better hands now

    It’s like the sun is shining when the rain is pouring down
    It’s like my soul is flying though my feet are on the ground
    So take this heart of mine there’s no doubt
    I’m in better hands now

    It’s like the sun is shining when the rain is pouring down
    It’s like my soul is flying though my feet are on the ground
    Its like the world is silent though I know it isnt true
    IT’S LIKE THE BREATH OF JESUS IS RIGHT HERE IN THIS ROOM

    So take this heart of mine there’s no doubt
    I’m in better hands now
    I’m in better hands now

  • Kalyn

There is nothing I can say to make it better, or go away- but just know that there are very many people who read your blog- and are changed for the better becuase you have chosen to share your story.

    Thank you, Jessica for updating Angie’s prayer team. We are also lifting you and your little one up as you write the updates. I live in NC and we are on eastern time. I didn’t even think about a time difference, but the Holy Spirit knew. He laid Angie on my heart SOOOO intensely about the time she was checking into the hospital.

    i found your blog through a friend, rachel h.
    i lost my daughter 4 months ago and it has been the hardest, darkest and most painful part of my walk with the Lord and time in my life. i haven’t always treated this loss with grace and replaced it with much anger and bitterness in the beginning as i struggled to figure out why we lost our daughter, why i felt so abandoned by my God as a believer who should always feel His presence. reading your words, your story, your journey- listening to your heart and your infectious spirit and peace that seems to abound from every sentence; i am touched. i am blessed. i am so changed by your words, hearing your story and i admire your resilience and Joy that you CHOOSE to follow in. what an example, what a witness…to so many, but especially to this grieving mom who has taken your sweet audrey’s story as a balm to my spirit and an encouragement to my own story of my sydney. praying for you sweet stranger. and for your family, and your girls, all four of them

    I don’t know what else to say other than I’m praying for each of you and the doctors and nurses who will be part of this day that you will remember forever. Y’all have been on my mind and in my prayers since early this morning, I will continute to bring you before the Father. For peace, for love, for joy, for grace, for mercy, for presence.

  • Brittany

    May the peace that surpasses all understanding be with you, Todd and your family during this time. I have been thinking about you and Audrey constantly since I was directed to your blog a few weeks ago. I pray for you constantly. There are no words any of us can provide to heal the pain you are enduring. Our Great Physician provides those words, and it is completely evident that He has been whispering them to you from the beginning of this journey.

    As the time comes so soon for Audrey’s delivery, I just find myself praying, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy.” I’m getting ready to drive in Chicago-area rush hour traffic, but I will be praying all the way.

    you have filled my thoughts all day, psalm 23 has been reeling through my head all day, today is my daughters 23rd birthday, i thought of that easter sunday 23 years ago and how delicate her birth was…i have been praying for a miracle, His mercy; dear Lord, let there be peace and love, grace and mercy….

  • Marva

    I happened upon this blog as a result of reading “Nitty.Gritty,” and I realized as I was reading that it was 5pm EST, the scheduled time for Audrey’s arrival. Coincidence? I don’t think so. I believe God laid your names on my heart. I pray for God’s love and peace to surround you and your family. Heaven will surely be rejoicing over the arrival of a precious angel.

    I am praying so much for you and your family. Lord, please be with the Smith family today and in the weeks to come. May you find peace and comfort. Audrey has truly been an inspiration to me.

    God has poured out his love into our hearts.
