Another Give Away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you’ve followed Nick’s journey for long enough, you know how significant the “thumbs up” has become to our family!!

From pictures we began taking of friends and family after Nick’s successful surgery in August 2006 to the thumbs up cloud my mom saw shortly thereafter……………..all the way to the ultrasound of one of my friend’s daughter’s baby…………..we have had thumbs up signs all along Nick’s journey. You can look back through blog posts to find these pictures.


Well, you can imagine how we felt the first day in India when Tim received change that included this rupee coin!!!

Later we discovered that this coin was just issued in 2008, and NOONE we met had ever seen it before we arrived!!!!

We truly felt that God was giving us His “thumbs up” on our entire trip’s purpose and that Nick was putting in his “two cents worth” (the value of this particular coin!) from Heaven. Leave it to Nick to somehow influence the Indian government’s choice for a coin decoration.

I would love to share this little message from God with you, so I thought it would be fun to do a little give away! I will draw 7 names from the comments left on this particular blog entry this Saturday night at 11 p.m.

So just leave a little post that includes your email address, so I can contact you for your mailing address, and your name will be added to the drawing!!!

I love you all so much!!

PS Karen, I mailed your book today!!! And Christine……I missed you at church Sunday. Zoie’s Mom is getting her book Wednesday.

  1. It still amazes me how personal our God is and how He can and will move Heaven and earth to speak to us!

    I love your blog and am always encouraged in my walk when I visit here… so glad you are feeling better!

    Blessings!

  2. In response to the coin…all I can think to say is “WOW”….God’s blessing on your faithfulness to be available to Him is always leaving me speechless! Its wonderful.

    I have really enjoyed your photos and the stories from your trip. Can’t wait to see all God is going to do as a result of the trip.

    In the first picture of the previous post (He meets our needs)…who is the boy behind Olivia – with the t-shirt on??

  3. Jennifer,

    The boy in the t-shirt behind Erich and Olivia is our son, Evan.

    Tim is trailing in the back…..red plaid shirt, looking down.

    Todd must be ahead of them with me.:)

    Love you,
    Tammy

  4. Sweet Tammy… I love you dear friend and I love how God continually shows you His GREAT love for you and your family. You are deeply, deeply loved.

    Many more blessings and grace be unto you.

    Love,
    Bonnelle

  5. Your blog is amazing! It’s like a part of my study now. You lift and encourage me. Glad you’re better-missed you.

  6. TAMMY,
    WHEN I READ ABOUT THE COIN THE FIRST TIME YOU POSTED ABOUT IT I WAS AMAZED. I COULDN’T BELIEVE THE PICTURE ON IT. IT HAD TO BE A GOD MOMENT WITH NICK HELPING EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. SO GLAD YOU’RE FEELING BETTER.

  7. Tammy, thank you for sharing Nick with us the past years, I know he’s in Heaven looking down on us. I’m glad you’re feeling better and home safe. Love you, Lexie (lmadon@yahoo.com)

  8. Tammy, this was just AMAZING!!!

    But why should we be surprised?

    God was all over the trip and Nick’s life continues to impact so many.

    Here’s a thumbs up to you all and I’m praising God for another thumbs up from the Lord♥

  9. Thank you Lord for Your loving care of my precious friend. Please send Your strength, peace and love to sustain her. Bless and multiply her efforts to glorify and praise You. Amen.

  10. I really love how God speaks to us through everything, even a coin! When I saw the post about it, and then the picture, I just laughed– God does have a sense of humor, and more importantly, He cares so much for us to send us ‘thumbs up’ just when we most need them! Tammy, I just love your blog. I have been following Nick’s journey and yours since July 28 (I know because that’s the bookmark that brings me here) I am so encouraged through your walk of faith each and every time I come here. I would just love to win a coin, but whom ever it goes to, I think it’s just an amazing story!!

  11. Tammy,

    Never have I been as moved as I have been today. I am so thankful that God sent us your way today and allowed us to be just a small part of the great big ministry that you and Tim are working so hard at for the Lord. I hope that as my girl scouts and I continue to work with this powerful organization that we can grow stronger each and everyday in His Word and in the strength that he gives to you and your family to express your love for Him and your beloved children that He has already gathered home. May God truly bless you each and every day.
