Prayers Needed - UPDATE

The young woman that I asked prayer for was taken off life support last night.

Please lift her family in prayer.  I cannot imagine the anguish this family is going through.

I am praying for God to use this tragedy for His glory.

I have prayed for each of you this morning . . . for everyone who reads my blog.

I am asking for God to protect you and your family. 

For Him to put a hunger in your heart for a closer relationship with Him.

And I am asking Him to bless you, in Jesus name.

Prayers Needed

Yesterday there was a car accident just outside our small town.  I"ll spare you the details, but the accident was very serious.  A 20 year old woman is in the hospital.  The doctors have said that she is "brain dead" and have given her family no hope. 

She is 12 weeks pregnant.  Her baby is alive and doing well.  

Friends this family needs a miracle.  And this tiny twelve week old baby needs a miracle.

Today I ask for your prayers.  The Word of God promises us that the prayer of the righteous availeth much.  If you belong to Jesus you are righteous.  Not because of anything you have done, but because of what He did on the cross.  Your prayers move the Hand of God.

So pray as if this was your daughter, your sister, your friend.  Pray, and believe that God is still God.  Because He is.

Mr. & Mrs.

On Saturday our daughter got married.

After weeks of rain and clouds, and more rain and clouds, the sun shone brightly on Saturday afternoon.  It was an absolutely gorgeous day.  Could not have been more perfect.

Here is a picture of our beautiful daughter and son-in-law.

Thank you all so much for your prayers.  They were felt, and very much appreciated!

In TWO Days

In May I shared THIS post about my son getting married.  It was three days before the wedding, and I shared my thoughts with you.   
 Today, is just TWO days before my daughter gets married. Two more days until she walks down the aisle and gives her heart to a young man and they will begin their lives together as husband and wife.  Saturday, July 4th at 2:00 p.m.!!!

I remember the day she was born.  Her first steps.  Her first day of kindergarten.  Watching her grow up has been my honor.  Being a mother to my son and my daughter, has been the best part of my life.   I cherish each and every memory.

So today, I'm asking for your prayers again.   Below were my prayer requests for my son and daughter-in-law for their wedding.  I am copying that prayer request and asking for those same prayers for my daughter, Alex and future son-in-law, Cole (yes they are both named Cole!!).

Would you pray for God to pour out His Holy Spirit upon them as they begin their life together as husband and wife.

I ask for God to protect them as they are traveling on their honeymoon and bring them back home safely.

I ask God to bless them as they experience the good days and bad that come with marriage and work and life, and to help them keep their eyes on Him in every situation.

I ask for God to surround them with people who will strengthen them and encourage them, both in their marriage and in their walk with God.
And while I'm asking for prayers, I would ask you to pray for their move to California.  Since military orders have changed we don't have time to make a trip to California to make any living arrangements, so they will have to handle things over the telephone and finalize things when they get out there.  Please pray for everything to go smoothly, and for God to put them where HE wants them.  I know that God is in this.
Thank you all so very very much!! 
Pictures next week!!!
