Happy Life

I agree with this saying, but one thing is missing.  Jesus.

Knowing Jesus is the only way to a happy life.  The other sentiments are nice, but they aren't eternal.  Jesus is eternal.

Hebrews 12:1-2 says:  "Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."

So on this cold snowy January, look to Jesus.  He wants to be your EVERYTHING.  Trust Him.

Continue to Pray

My friend's husband was taken off of life support this morning.

My friend is a widow at 49 years old.

He leaves behind 4 children, and 4 grandchildren.

He was 56 years old.

I am heartbroken for my friend.

Please pray.

Serious Prayers Needed

Early last week the husband of a friend of mine went to urgent care.  He was sick with a bad cold, and was given antibiotics, steroids and cough medicine.  My friend came down with a cold over Christmas, and her husband was no better, so they both went to urgent care last Friday.

When the doctor examined her husband, his oxygen levels were found to be very low and he was transported to the hospital by ambulance.  Once at the hospital, they diagnosed him with pneumonia in both lungs and admitted him to the hospital.

Folks, it has gone downhill from there. 

He was transferred to ICU on Sunday in critical condition. 

On Tuesday they discussed transferring him to another hospital but his condition was too critical and they did not believe he would survive the transport.

Yesterday they found a small hole in one of his lungs and while trying to insert a chest tube his blood pressure dropped dangerously low.  They had to vent him, and sedate him.

He is now on a ventilator and they have inserted two chest tubes.  This afternoon he developed a fever of 105 degrees.

This man needs your prayers.  He needs prayers for healing.  I do not know if he is a Christian

Please, right now, take a few minutes and pray for this man.  He is 56 years old, and is the father of two daughters and two sons.  Pray for his family as well.  They need comfort and peace that only Jesus can give.
