It's a Wrap....Good Night

Every day is a celebration.  The Heroes Ball was the first of many celebrations. #TeamBolton had so much fun.  It was a incredible evening with an amazing group of people coming together to raise awareness and funding for Connor's Heroes.  It's hard to put into words want Connor's Heroes has meant to us over the last two years.  The calls, visits, love, support, events, programs and opportunities to create memories and enjoy 'fun' moments as a family have been priceless. Connor's Heroes is an organization that understands how illness alters the life of the entire family, coupled with the challenges and struggles that accompany balancing life and treatment. I want to do my part to ensure they are able to continue touching and reaching the lives of families touched by cancer and life threatening illness.  Be sure to visit www.connorsheroes.org to see how you or your organization may be able to support the vision and mission.

Red was sort of our family themed color of choice.  I chose red because it was a statement of conquering the issue of 'blood'.  Mireya choose to wear white, which was very fitting. The little girl with the 'issue of blood', washed, cleansed and walking in victory....nothing but the blood of Jesus. It took faith and determination for the woman with the issue of blood to receive her healing. She said 'if I can just touch the hem of his garment, I will be made whole'.  This has been our stance and prayer for over two years, that Mireya would be made whole, that her health would be restored without issue.  We're thankful and grateful that through it all...the good, the bad and the questionable that God has carried and seen us through. We had no control, but our faith told us to hold on and trust God. Don't stop believing.....hold on to the promise.  Mireya has three months left in her active treatment and she is doing tremendously.  

What can wash away my sin?

Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

  • Refrain:
    Oh! precious is the flow
    That makes me white as snow;
    No other fount I know,
    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
