calling all prayer warriors...

If you are friends with me on facebook you know that yesterday I was incredibly sad. J and I are leaders of a small group at our church and a couple in our group was pregnant with their second baby a boy. She went into pre-term labor at 21 weeks and this sweet little boy was unable to survive. As a small group we have prayed for this baby and even his gender. It is so hard to swallow why this would happen. Please pray for this young family.

I also found out yesterday that a good friend of mine, who is only 29 years old and has two little boys 4yrs old and 18 months old has cancer. They are hopeful to be able to remove it all on Tuesday. Please pray for her, the doctors, and her family as they go through this uncertain time.

It is in times like this that I really look to God for comfort and peace. I know that he is completely in control and has had his hand in each of these situations. It is just so hard to understand. Thank you for the prayers they are very much needed.

I am one of those who prayed for this family! How ironic. I found your blog on Joyful Journey and decided to check it out. Your blog looks faboo!! I love it!

I know times like these are hard to understand, but even in these horrible times, God has a more significant plan than we can see or even fathom.
