Answered Prayer

Hello all you prayer warriors...KEEP IT UP!!!

First Nicholas: they did the bone scan this morning and it was completely clear. They said that tumors in the lungs are very, very rare as a primary site in children, so they think that perhaps the lesions they saw might not be tumors, but maybe some kind of pneumonia or infection. They are going to do two weeks of big gun antibiotics and then re-do the lung scan to see if the lesions have cleared. THIS is what we will pray for!!! That would be the perfect answer! Boldly approach the throne and claim the promises on behalf of Nicholas. Believe that he will be restored to perfect health in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ!

I heard from Doug Hayes. Information on Ashley has been sketchy, but he said that she is in Texas now, which is good news and that she is no longer in a coma. She is responding somewhat, she is not fully conscious and has not been able to talk yet, but she is trying to drink water and even reaching for the tv remote. Keep praying for her recovery to be quick and complete! Doug also said that there was misinformation earlier. Her father died in the car crash, but her uncle did not. He didn't mention an aunt. Please keep your prayers coming for Ashley, her family, and all her friends here in Walla Walla.

And may the blessings you request for others in His name, be multiplied and returned to you. Love, Shell


  1. Praise God are the only words that come to me right now. Prayer is so wonderful. Michelle thank you for the update.

  2. Michelle, thank you. I looked for you at the reception to see if you had any word. Was a very nice evening. What wonderful news. Could not ask for anything more. Will keep praying things work out in the next two weeks. God Bless You Michelle.

  3. What wonderful news! There is much joy here in Texas for you folks in Walla Walla. Just praying that those antibiotics do the job for Nicholas and this will all be just a bad memory soon...

    And that the news for Ashley and her family continues to be better as well.

    PS - How is Zach's shin? Still doing OK? Don't forget to let us know about all of you, too....

  4. To God be the Glory!!! that Ashley and nicholas are in his hands and that our heavenly father does answer prayers....will continue to pray for these beautiful children...

  5. Hoping that the good news for Nicholas and Ashley is continuing...and things are also good in the Meyer household. Prayers from your very hot (at least in temperature!) So. Cal friends, Kara & Butch

    p.s. Thank you so much for including Butch's site in your list of friends - prayers for Butch from Team Meyer are so very appreciated!

August Blog Challenge - Day 7

What is your dream job and why?

I have my dream job.  I really do.

I work at Walla Walla Community College.  It's the best community college in the nation according to the Aspen Institute.

And it is. It really is.

I went to a private university.  A pretty snobby, pretentious one. I thought the community college would somehow be "less" than a university.

I was so wrong.

This place is filled with dynamic, passionate, intelligent people.  And these people care so much about the students they serve. I am continually awed by the caliber of learning and the depth of compassion I see every day.

And I get to be a part of it.

The work I do is hard. But I have a partner.  Daryl.  He's my sanity.  He keeps me grounded.  He's brilliant and insightful and he fills my work days with unconditional love.  We support each other. We talk and connect every day, sustaining each other in ways that go far beyond the surface.  We grow together as people and as therapists.  We fight b…


So I had my first Walla Walla goodbyes.
The first was my eye doctor, Dr. Poffenroth.
He's taken care of my eyes for 25 years.
He's more than just an eye doctor.  He's a caring person and a friend.
As I left my last appointment, he handed me a card with a referral to a friend of his who practices in Port Angeles.
I looked at the card.
And realized...I won't see him again.

I've been living in a bit of denial.
I know.  Big surprise.

With all the excitement and chaos of moving,
And all the stress of living in limbo,
I somehow missed that I'd be leaving some things
some people

I know I'll be back often.
To see my kids and the new grandbaby,
friends and family.
This fact allowed me to forget...
there are some I won't see.

Even though we promise to keep in touch,
Life has a way of getting busy.
Good intentions and all that.

I  have written many times about Walla Walla.
It's a magical place.
Safe, nurturing.
I never thought I'd leave.

People ask…


I got a tattoo.  Christine actually wrote on my facebook post, "You??"
Yeah.  Me.

I've been thinking about it for six years.
I finally decided that if after six years, I still wanted it, maybe it was time.

The writing is Dave and Doug's.
Taken from notes they wrote me.
They always signed their notes the same way.

I thought I was doing it in memory of them.
To mark the way they are always on my heart.
To have a visible reminder.
A permanent keepsake,
always with me.

And while it is that.
It is also more.

I didn't realize it,
until afterwards.

It's a marker.
A closing of a chapter.
Closure, if you will.

I don't know how to explain it.
The minute it was finished,
I knew.
I knew something inside me was different.

and to a lesser extent,
have been part of my every thought
every day
for over 10 years.

Daryl saw the Dali Lama this summer.
One thing he learned:
Interrogate your truth.

I've been thinking about that a lot.

Interrogate implies a…
