One More Prayer Request

One of the reasons I love to blog so very much is because of all the dear friendships I have made over the past couple of years. So many wonderful people out there in the world! And my dear friend Kat is one on the top of my list. This lady is an angel and a riot and a dear friend to me even though I have never met her in person.

I was just informed that her husband had an aneurysm sometime last night. Not to mention that she has been feeling ill herself suffering from vertigo and "foggy headedness" this past two weeks. I will be praying for his recovery and strength for Kat and her daughters.

This week has been one full of sad and scary news at my house. These things put life into perspective right quick. I am so grateful for a loving Heavenly Father that helps and comforts us through difficult times during our stay on earth. I know there is a bigger picture than what we can see through our immediate eyes, and that brings me peace and comfort.

Jarom's Aunt Eja is still in her induced coma, but her surgeries have gone well thus far. We are thankful for power of prayer and the blessing of modern medicine. I also attended Mindy's son's funeral yesterday and was such a nice service. What a wonderful attitude she and her family have.

Go hug your loved ones a little tighter today, you never know what tomorrow might bring.

Lenes- This is a weird week. I just read on my Aunt Judy's blog Chicago Connection, that she suffered a stroke!! I am in shock.

Wow! So much going on. We'l keep them in our prayers, too.

BTW, you are great in primary! If it makes you feel any better, I never did get any of the songs memorized...I've always had to have the book!

Thanks for letting me come and sing with you today! :)

This really does seem to be a season where many things are going wrong...all the more reason to run to our heavenly Father though! May he give you and those you love the strength to stand firm in His peace.

You have a beautiful blog! ♥ Tori
