Safe in the Arms of God

We just had a very sad conversation with Jenn's Docs. Jenni's condition continues to deteriorate. They are out of treatment options. Factor VII given through the lungs was ruled out because the doctors believe it would cause a very painful passing and not help at all.

Therefore, tonight when all of the family can be gathered, we will discontinue the extraordinary means that we have been using to keep Jenni going.

Jenni did not want to be on the vent for long, and she would not want to be on the machine if there were no hope of recovery. We are honoring her wishes.

Thank you for all of your love and prayers. The outpouring of support has been more than I can really comprehend. It has carried us through these difficult days. May God bless you.

Grace and Peace
Layne

She is a wonderful person and will be truly missed. may God be with you all

I am so sorry. I know that this is not the way anyone wanted God to answer our prayers. It is difficult now, and will be even more difficult in the days to come, to remember that He has a plan and a purpose. We don't understand it, we don't always like it, but we have to have faith that He knows what He is doing and that He doesn't make mistakes. The work that He has done through Jenni and her family has made an incredible impact on people all over the world, and I for one will NEVER forget the impact it has made on me. It has inspired me as a Christian, it has touched me as a spouse, and has also shown me the importance of being a compassionate and family-centered nurse. I know you keep telling all of us thank you....please know that we are also giving thanks. In Christ, Emily Dawkins

Words can not describe the sorrow I feel for Jenni and her loved ones watching her go through this. My prayers are with Jenni, her hsuband, her family and friends. Even though I have never had the pleasure of meeting Jenni, I know one day I will. I have been told of the type of sweet person, Jenni is and her strong faith through converstions with her mother-in-law, Debbie. So yes, I know I will one day meet Jenni. You are all in my prayers. God be with you all. Donna Conner

Paula Quick said...

May the grace of God carry you through your trials. May the Love of our Father lift your hearts and heal your hurt. Just remember that Jenni will be sitting at the right hand of the Father waiting in paradise for all of you to join her in celebration. Remember there is a multitude of family and friends that will be here for you, all of you, in this time of sadness.

This truly breaks my heart and with every tear I'm shedding you will remain in my heart and thoughts. After losing Chip and my Dad so close together, one of the few things that brought me comfort was that I never had to doubt that they knew I loved them. I never had to say I wish I had one more chance so I could tell them because it was the last thing I ever said to both of them. I hope you find some comfort there too because one thing that no one could ever doubt is your love for Jenni. Fighting so hard to help her and especially, being willing to let her go, shows how you care because you have to love her more than yourselves to do what she needs knowing how it will hurt. She is truly a fighter and if it's her time to leave this world I wish a peaceful passage for her and for you to know that she will be in the only place she could ever be more loved than by her family.

I've only been aware of your situation for a few days and I have prayed for a miracle....I cannot immagine the heartache and pain that you have experienced watching such a beautiful person suffer so much! I can't wrap my head around God's purpose for these things. I want you to know that there are people...strangers even...who are praying for you and still praying for a miracle. I know that God may choose to bring her home in just a few short hours and if he does I am praying for a peace and a comfort that only He can bring! My heart aches for you and your family! My God wrap you in his arms of love and allow you his grace, mercy, and peace as you walk through the coming days!

Anything we would say would never be enough for these few hours. We know you're with Jenni, as you should be, so for when you read this later, just know that we love you and our hearts are breaking for you, Jenni's family, and all of your family.

We will never understand in this life; we can only trust and know that He loves us ultimately.

Josh,
There really arent any words that can be said that can ease what you are going through right now and what you will continue to go through in time to come. Just know that you, jenni, and rest of your family are in my thoughts and prayers and will continue to be. Everything god does has a purpose and a reason and even though we sometimes think he's making a huge mistake deep down we know he doesnt make mistakes. Take comfort in knowing that Jenni is a wonderful person and regardless of how long she is with you, she lived a loved and happy life. And in the end that is all we can really ask for.

These are the words to a song by Caedmon's Call
"Hands of the Potter"
this is the song God brought to mind as i prayed for Jenni..
And as We remember the story of jenni's life, It will be a song so sweet..
For she is soon to be in the hands of the potter.
The hands that perfected her from the very beginning.
may God give you and your family peace as you make the hardest decision of your lives..With all the love in the world i hope that the words to this song bless you..





Lord if I'm the clay then I've been left out in the sun
Cracked and dry, like mud from the sty
Still clinging to the prodigal son

But I'm on my way back home
Yes I'm on my way back home

Into the hands
That made the wine from the water
Into the hands
The hands of the Potter

Lord if I'm the clay that let your living water flow
Soften up my edges Lord
So everyone will know

That I'm on my way back home
Yes I'm on my way back home

And Lord when you listen for the song of my life
Let it be, let it be, a song so sweet
Let it be, let it be, a song so sweet
Let it be, let it be, a song so sweet, let it be

Lord if I'm the clay then lay me down
On your spinning wheel
Shape me into something you can fill
With something real

And I'll be on my way back home
Yes I'm on my way back home


Jenni is on her way back home..
The same place that we will meet her again..
A place with no sicknesss, pain,or tears.
A place as perfect as Jenni was..
May God be with all of you as You see her off, and as you grieve.
He is in control and will nevre forsake you..
your sister in christ

Just wanted to let you know that you are all in our prayers. I wish I had words that could help you at this time. I do not, but HE does.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:4-13

Cherish and protect the love you have for one another, and know that your Father in Heaven loves you.

We love you

Words can never express the sorrow we all feel although I'm holding on for a miracle. I'm a blunder with words so I rely on others to say something great and one thing my husband said to our neighbors when they lost their son 2 years ago was "Did you ever stop and wonder if God just couldn't stand to be without him any longer that He had to bring him home" and a peace just fell over me. I wonder if this is true with Jenni and that He loves her so much. I find comfort in songs and this is a song that just fits, whatever the outcome know that God is faithful.

I Choose - Ivan Parker
Master may I be so honest, Could I admit the way I feel
I’m hurting it seems that You’ve forsaken and I wonder is Your love for me still real
Though my friends think I am happy unaffected by this trial they can’t see the pain I’m hiding just underneath my smile
Master I can’t live this way anymore so today I make my choice

I choose to believe that You are faithful and my heart is in Your hands and this mystery that I face today is part of a greater plan I choose not to be discouraged when the sun will not break through I have the choice of trusting You so Lord this is what I choose

I know this road will not be easy and I know I’ll have my weaker days and Satan will tell me I don’t mean it when I say I’ll trust God all the way but that really doesn’t matter I refuse to hear him out with my faith I’ll find the power to overcome all doubt Lord I’ve never felt so strong as when I’m resting in Your arms

My heart is in pieces for all of you. I could not imagine ever having to be where you are, and I'm so sorry that you are.

Know that the Lord will carry all of you through this time. He has a plan for everything, and something positive will shine through all the darkness. I know there will hard days ahead, so I will continue to lift you guys up.

Into Your hands, O Lord, I commend the soul of Your servant Jenni, and grant her rest in the place of Your rest, where all Your blessed Saints repose, and where the light of Your countenance shines forever. And I ask You also to grant that our present lives may be godly, sober, and blameless, that, we too may enter Your heavenly Kingdom with those we love but see no longer: for You are the Resurrection, and the Life, and the Repose of Your departed servants, O Christ our God, and unto thee we ascribe glory: to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

Be mindful, O Lord, of all those who have fallen asleep in the hope of resurrection unto life eternal, especially Jenni. Shelter her in a place of verdure, a place of repose, whence all sickness, sorrow and sighing have fled away, and where the sight of Your countenance rejoices all of Your Saints from all the ages. Grant Jenni Your heavenly Kingdom, and a portion in Your ineffable and eternal blessings, and the enjoyment of Your unending Life.

Father...You alone see all and know all. You alone have, and have always had, the ability to heal Jenni's infirmities. Father, You see the pain that the family is suffering and you alone can comfort them. Father, they have come to the end of themselves and have put Jenni completely into Your hands. You alone can change what the doctors and family are expecting...Your precious and Perfect Son gave his life so that this resurrection can be given to Jenni and all others who place their faith in Him. I pray that you would uphold Your Word Father! Comfort and give peace to the family but most of all bring TOTAL healing to Jenni! Lord, I pray this all in the MIGHTY, HOLY, and PERFECT name of Jesus Christ! Our only Lord and Savior, Redeemer, Strength, and Strong Tower!

I feel lead to tell you that there are no regrets. You have prayed long and hard about this decision, and it is the one God wants you to make. Trust in His divine guidance. Stand firm on your decision to be willing to let her go. It has got to be the most difficult choice you will ever make, but know that it's like the poem "Footprints in the Sand." When you look back on your life, and you only see one set of footprints, it was then that He carried you. He is carrying you right now, and this is what He wants for you and for Jenni. Don't panic, resist the urge to rescind your decision, just let go and let God. It will be so hard, but be determined that this is what you were Told to do by God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. No regrets. Amen, may peace be with you.

I am so sorry that you are all having to go through any of this. Although I did not know you Jenni, but you have touched me in ways that I can not even begin to describe. I pray peace over each and every family member right now. The Lord will guide you through all of your pain.

Josh, Jim, Judi, and the entire family:
I never thought I would have to open this website and read this post, but God has a reason for everything. I remember when Jenni went to Temple Christian and then transferred to Richmond Senior when I was a student there. She was so smart, graceful, and kind (to everyone). I am encouraged by the song "Well Done My Child" because it paints a beautiful picture of what is awaiting for each of God's children in Heaven. If it is truly God's will to call Jenni home, I am comforted by knowing her as a Christian, a true Christian who walked so closely with the Lord each day of her life. I know this is a comfort to all of those who loved Jenni. Know that each of you will hold a dear place in my heart and will continue to be in my prayers for many days, weeks, and months ahead. During such a difficult time for a family, I pray that you will be constantly reminded of the hard fight each of you put up for Jenni. Recall the wonderful memories you have to cherish of Jenni, and reach out for the Lord. He will comfort, guide, and shield you, not only tonight, but for the remainder of your grieving. God is our strength and refuge. May God heal your broken hearts and soothe your aching souls.

I love you all...

My heart breaks for you all. You have shown a courage that only God can supply. What an amazing example you have set for unbelievers. May the peace of God which transcends all understanding be with you during this time. I know the Lord will comfort you during this time and during the time to come. You all are in my prayers.
