Faithful Friday - "Prayer Needed"

Here it is Friday again. I’m so sorry for being away an entire week!  



Just to fill you in……..everyone is doing remarkably well with the loss of my Grandma, including all of her children. I want to come back and share another time on another post more about the love of her family. And even though she will be missed…….it was still a joyous occasion for her family to gather together and see the love that surrounded her….what a legacy she left!

The reason I have been away and the reason for the title of this post today is to ask for prayers for our family, especially Jason and his sister, Holly. Their dad (my father-in-law) is in the hospital with kidney failure. He has multiple myeloma (a form of cancer) which he was diagnosed with the fall of 2009. We knew this day would come as this is a final part of the disease, but it is sadly near now. There will be difficult decisions that will have to be made.

All of this came right after my Grandma’s death. There were also seven other deaths of friends and friends’ family within a two week period, making these past two weeks emotional ones. This past week feels sort of hazy, but God is walking through it with us every step of the way. Jason’s dad is a Christian so there are no worries there, and that means a lot.

So today, I am just asking for prayers for our family for wisdom, peace, comfort, a sound mind, physical endurance, and God’s grace as we face the days to come and prayers especially for Jason's dad (I call him Pawpaw)!  Thank you so much!

Hope you all have a great weekend! I’ll try to be back as soon as I can to share more information about the changes to the living room.

If you would like to participate in Faithful Fridays, please leave Joy a comment here on her blog and let her know you are participating! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and I am always encouraged by your comments! God bless you all!
