Today is Ray's birthday. He was born on the 6th day of the 6th month. He left on the 3rd day of the 3rd month. ...
Another dear friend is taking her turn in a hospital waiting room, waiting, praying, crying, praying more. Her husband,whom she married nearly 50 years ago when she was just 18, had a massive heart attack the other night. He was alive when he got to the hospital, but nobody was saying whether or not there was any brain activity. He was still in hospital this morning. That's good. Or maybe not so good, depending on what else is going on in his body and brain.
Pray for Alene and her family. Pray for Jerry.
The phone rang while I was writing this. A friend received an email from me this morning that started out, "It's a crappy day...." What a welcome treat that phone call was!
Reach out to a friend. Hug someone you love. Give thanks for at least one gift in your life today. Pray without ceasing.
