Dear Thomas

Dear Thomas,
"The LORD himself watches over you!
The LORD stands beside you as your protective shade.
The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night.
The LORD keeps you from all harm and watches over your life.
The LORD keeps watch over you as you come and go,
both now and forever. (Psalm 121:5-8 NLT)

Your father and I love you more than you will ever know.
Tomorrow is your due date...but instead of being born, you are heading into surgery for the fight of your life. If we could take this from you we would in an instant. We will be praying desperately for you the entire time, and so are more people than you would believe!
We can't wait to see you when it is over, and are looking forward to taking you home in a few weeks.
I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be!


  1. I am praying for you Dr. Behm, and your precious baby Thomas. You are a wonderful physician that my daughter has entrusted the care of her children. Your son is now in the care of the Almighty Healer, himself. May God Bless you all, today, and always.

  5. If you have a chance, check out Martina Mc Bride's new song "I'm gonna love you through this" While it is about a woman battling cnacer, she, like Thomas is gearing up for the fight of her life and her husband is telling her he's going to love her through it, just as you and TJ will love Thomas through his big fight!

  6. You have been in my prayers, especially this morning. I will continue in my prayers throughout the day. I pray that "God would grant Thomas,you, and his doctors, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthen with might by His Spirit in the inner man." Ephesians 3:16
    Dianna Phillips
