I know that most of you already know about a couple of special prayer requests that are being sent out across our little corner of Blogville. I just want to try to spread the word that our prayers are needed now, more than ever, for our brave Amy.
My heart ached after reading Sherry's blog (Country Wings in Phoenix), and learning that her sister, Debbie's (There's An Angel on My Front Porch) daughter, Amy is now in critical condition. Please pray for Amy, Debbie, Amy's father, Sherry, and the rest of this precious family, as they walk this difficult journey.
I'd also like to request special prayers for our dear friend, Ann at Life at Ann's Place, as she faces a lengthy and difficult surgery on Tuesday.
I know that non-bloggers can't possibly understand the pain and the concern we feel for people we have never met. I have begun to think that the fact that we haven't met makes these fearful events even more difficult.
How I would love to be able to hug these wonderful people when I tell them that I am praying for them. I want to be able to look them in the eyes and tell them how special they are and to let them know how much I care. I feel that my attempt to convey those feelings through a typewritten comment on a blog does not come close to letting them know what they have come to mean to me. In situations like this, we usually feel helpless even if we are right beside the person who is walking a fearful path, but we can at least hold the friend and give them a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen to their fears.
Amy, Debbie, Sherry, and all of your family, know that we are praying and that we are hugging you and we hope that you can feel our love through our typewritten words..
Ann, know that we are praying for you as you go to Houston for your surgery, and know that our arms are wrapped around you in love, and we hope that you and your family can feel our love.
If you haven't met these sweet bloggers, please go meet them now, and let them know that a lot of people are thinking about them and praying for them. These are some of the sweetest bloggers I know, and both families need all of the love and prayers that I know you wonderful people can give them.
Amy , Debbie, Sherry, and their families at Country Wings in Phoenix
Ann and her family at Life at Ann's Place.
Thank you so very much. laurie
