Your prayers would be appreciated...they are needed badly! First off...we have had sickness in our house one person at a time...it is as if it lies in wait and then pounces...and knocks you down....HARD. It starts with a cough...a sore throat...sinus pressure...headache...you *think* you can use meds and treat it...but then it knocks you over and you literally use an entire box of tissues in one day. First Gayle, then Eli, then Asher, then Esther, then me...it may be starting with Isaac, but I *think* he is ok...Cory has been pounding oranges and seems to have escaped it...Please pray that he doesnt get it...that THEY dont get it.
Other requests are that a friend of ours caught his hand in a snow blower and quite possibly might have lost 2-3 fingers. He is in so much pain, and this family is going through quite a trial....which brings me to the next concern....their son has a growth in his brain in an inoperable spot and the situation is very scary! They prayed over him at church this past Sunday~ I am convinced that this family is under attack in a big way. So if you think about it...add them to your prayer list...and pray for their strength and support, and for encouragement, and healing, and for blessings in abundance!
Please pray for Cory if you think of it...he has much to accomplish in the next couple of days...he has been very tired...I was no help to him over the weekend due to being so sick! He has a workload ahead of him and needs to find some extra portion of strength...so that is what I am praying for! I am proud of him for working so hard, and it is at these times that I cant help him because they arent something I can do...like his school work and grading essays...etc...I feel helpless. ....but I will pray...and that *is* something...very powerful.
Just a quick note to say thank-you to all of you who love us and pray for us...challenge us...help us...follow up with us...you know who you are...and it means a great deal to us! I feel like such a sap today...but it really is true...the effort you make is evident of your love to us--thanks!
