Praying For You....

Today's post is going to be short and too the point. I have a doctor's appointment today that I have been trying to get to for the past three weeks. Due to ice storms and ice/snow covered roads I have had to cancel twice. We are supposed to get some pretty bad storms come trough while we are gone today. According to the weather man we can expect winds up to 65 MPH. When you combine super wet soggy ground with those kinds of winds it can usually add up to uprooted trees and power outages. I thought just in case we come home to no electricity, I would do this post before leaving.

As I was out and about this morning doing some blog visiting I came across two prayer request that I wanted to share with you. My first stop was to visit with Juli at "Barefoot Gypsy" . Juli's post provided me with a link to visit at "Ellouise' Story". It is here that I read of Ellouise' husband Jim dealing with bladder cancer that returned. Ellouise is asking that we remember her Jim in our prayers and to please leave a comment so she can print them out and paste them to post cards to brighten Jim's stay in the hospital following the surgery he will be going through.

My next prayer request concerns all of the people whose lives have been devastated and lost due to the tornado that cut a path through Oklahoma and Texas. I have a feeling that before it is over, more lives will be torn apart due to the destruction of this approaching storm that will be coming our way today.

I received a prayer request from my friend Jackie, concerning her friend Patty in Houston, Texas. Patty's son, Marty has been missing since December 29th. Someone else has his cell phone and they are unable to locate his car. Please keep them both in your prayers.

My dear friend Nanna, (Jo waves to Nanna) recently e-mailed a link to me that took me to a wonderful site called "Soldier's Angels". If you have ever thought, " I wish I could do more for our troops" then this is the site you need to visit. Thank you Nanna for sending this link to me.

With that said, I will leave you with my prayers that God will hold each and every one of you in the palm of His hand and keep you safe and out of harm's way.

I've left a message for Jim. Hope all goes well for them.
I can't imagine what Patty is going through. I pray that she finds her son soon.
Mother Nature is sure testing folks this last few years. Lets hope that these devastating tornados stop for a while. It's such a shame.
...and the fires in Australia...., and the 8 new lives that have been born into such controversy.
We need to hope that there are reasons we don't understand for all of this. I think the answer is somewhere inside each of us.., and letting people know that they are not alone.You do this and I thank you for it.
You be careful driving around out there.


Thank you for your prayers for Jim and I join mine with yours for the others you mentioned.Ellouise
