Lately it seems there are lots of people I care about going through trials. I know that many of my readers believe the power of prayer, and will pray when I request it. Things are really mounting up with certain folks I care about, and I'm enlisting the help of all you prayer warriors out there.
1. Cliff's cousin Edna often sends me cute and funny e-mails. I share some of them in this journal; had it not been for the Internet, I'd never have gotten to know and love her as I do. Today her husband had a severe stroke.
2. One of the people in my town that I sincerely love, one of the funniest ladies you'll ever meet... my source, if I need to know the scoop on the latest local gossip.... her husband has a cancer issue. He's the same age as my son (40), and he's so full of life (and other things we won't mention) that I can't imagine anything bad happening to him. I know he'll be fine, but I enlist your prayers and positive energy for him.
3. This may not seem important enough to group it with the ones above, but a good message-board buddy, Hollie, accidentally let her pet bird (some exotic variety... I know nothing about pet birds) escape. She's so upset over this, I can feel her pain. And I remember how I felt when my Mandy died.
I know you people well enough to believe you'll join with me in this. And when the time comes, I'll do the same for you; I already have, in times past.
