"I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain,
'Move from here to there' and it will move."
May God give you the strength to keep your faith and move a mountain.

Please be with the Kaat family during this difficult time, I pray today for peace and healing. Please keep this family strong and help them to lean on you now more than ever. Please Lord, heal Jaymun and take this awful cancer from his dear little body. Lord only you are powerful enough to work miracles, I ask that you please watch over Jaymun and please make him well again.
Thank you Lord for your many blessings and for your sacrifice that we may be free.

Dear Dave & Jennifer & Cute Kaat Kids,
Please know that we are thinking of each & every single one of you.
(And THAT is a whole lotta thoughts on a daily basis, especially with SEVEN of you! haha)
We pray that God watches over Jaymun & brings him comfort during this trying time.
We also pray that God grants each of you, Dave & Jennifer, with strength & endurance, to weather this storm.
We know that little Jaymun is getting the best care from the wonderful doctors and nurses at Children's.
How blessed he also is to have such a loving family surrounding him with hugs & kisses!
We love you all!

P.S. Jennifer, Koley was saying 'Jenn-if-fur' after I got off the phone with you today. (smile)

Dear David, Jennifer and family,
Ruth let us know about your set-back this week. My heart goes out to you and your family.
Praying that the Lord, who is in control of all things,
will uphold you again through this trial and surround you with His peace and love.
Also, praying that the chemo will be effective and Jaymun will tolerate the treatments.
A beautiful hymn came to my mind this morning and I wanted to pass it along:
Day by Day
Day by day and with each passing moment,
Stength I find to meet my trials here;
Trusting in my Father's wise bestowment,
I've no cause for worry or for fear.
He whose heart is kind beyond all measure
Gives unto each day what He deems best;
Lovingly, its part of pain and pleasure,
Mingling toil with peace and rest.
Ev'ry day the Lord Himself is near me
With a special mercy for each hour;
All my cares He fain would bear, and cheer me,
He whose name is Counsellor and Pow'r.
The protection of His child and treasure
Is a charge that on Himself He laid;
'As your days, your strength shall be in measure,'
This the pledge to me He made.
Help me then in ev'ry tribulation
So to trust Thy promises, O Lord,
That I lose not faith's sweet consolation
Offered me within Thy holy Word.
Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,
E'er to take as from the father's hand,
One by one, the days, the moments fleeting,
Till I reach the promised land.
Praying that the Lord will uphold you day by day!

You don't know me but your Daddy's cousin, Ruth,
just became my new sister-in-law and she told me about you so I wanted to say hi.
You sure are a brave little boy and you have a family that loves you a whole lot.
And there are a lot of people talking to Jesus about you, including me.
Your new friend, Robin.
David & Jennifer,
Ruth (Sytsma) Helms is my new sister-in-law and she was sharing one of your journal entries as
a tribute to the love of a mother and a testimony of God's sustaining grace.
There should have been a tissue warning on that email!
My heart goes out to you as you face this trial again with Jaymun's health.
Please know that we will continually keep your family in our prayers.

I know I have been begging for an update, as Jaymun has been on my
heart, but I am saddened to hear he hasn't been feeling well. I will be
keeping him in my prayers!! Please continue to keep us posted on this
sweet little man.

Hello Kaat Family,
You may not remember me, but this is Jessie RN and I took care of Jaymun while he was in the PICU back in late 2006 when I worked the night shift.
I shared quite a few cups of coffee with Dave while he stayed so faithfully by Jaymun's side every night.
I just wanted to let you know that I still think about you all very frequently and I am saddened to hear about Jaymun's devestating setback.
Jaymun and your entire Kaat family will remain in my thoughts and prayers!
Keep the faith and know that you are prayed for very often!! :)
Love, Jessie PICU RN

LOVED your December 16th journal entry, Dave! haha
Not sure that Jennifer WILL, but...
Oh well. (smile)
Jaymun is getting to be such a big boy! I can't believe all of the hair he has now.
You all have come such a long way from where you were one year ago.
Many blessings to each & every one of you, Kaat Family.
Love, The Ress Family - Todd, Jenny, Asha, Ryder & Kole
