Wow! What a privilege it is to be a guest blogger standing in for Ashlee, Kari and Malachi! I am Davy from boggsblogs. Our family Davy, Kelly and Odie Boggs has known Ashlee since she was a very young girl. She has always been a fine Christian lady but her true Christian character is shining even more brightly through the severe ups and downs, twists and turns and hills and curves that life has brought to her. We are so proud of her!
Ashlee text some pictures of the kids to me and Kelly Jo yesterday and they are absolutely gorgeous. We told her that she better post them soon or I would post them myself on our blog. I guess she took me seriously and asked me to post the pictures for her here since her computer is down. I consider it an honor to do as she has asked.
I only have six pictures of Kari and Malachi but I know that Ashlee's millions of regular readers are going to love them. Get ready to smile and cry at the same time. Below these pictures I will post little Kari's prayer during devotions the other night. When I read it I was blown away and took a while to have myself a good cry....
Here are the pictures.
Does that hurt your eyes with preciousness or what!?!
Now for the prayer that Kari prayed.....
Lord we thank you for this day and all you've done for us.
But tomorrow is a new day that I have never been in before Lord and I ask that u would help me and help me to keep fighting this old cancer dragon.
Help Caitlyn and Michael and all of our other cancer friends.
And help all of our regular friends and family Lord. Lord we ask you to help our blessings and our requests in Jesus name, Amen.
Whew! Praise God! I know that God has promised to hear the prayers of His people and I know that He keeps His Word....But I can not help but believe that prayers like that receive some special attention!
Keep right on praying, Kari! God hears you when you pray! There is no doubt about it.
Friends, let's continue to hold this beautiful family up in prayer. Life goes on for all of us and we have our own "dragons" to fight but I know that many of you hold this family very close to your hearts. Let's continue to make a special effort to be a blessing to Ashlee, Kari and Malachi. Keep praying, keep believing God, keep leaving comments, emailing, texting and calling with encouragement and kind words and consider helping financially as well. (This may end my career as a guest blogger before it even gets started, but I am too far away for Ashlee to shoot me right now.) There is no doubt in my mind that Ashlee could use every dollar that we could send her.
In fact, it would be incredible if you would forward this to friends, post the link in other blogs or spread it by word of mouth. I would love for readers right here to flood Ashlee with more than enough for her needs. Wouldn't that be awesome? What do you think?
I went back into the archives of this blog and found the following information from Sis. Karen Noe that tells how we can help...

Personal: Thanks Kari for allowing me to guest blog on your and Malachi's page. Our family loves you very much. We think you are very brave, courageous and beautiful. I can't wait to see you again and sit down and have some ice cream together! Keep your head up and keep singing!
Your BIG Buddy
