A Prayer Request From A Friend

You know,
one of the neat things
about blogging that 
I never thought of 
BEFORE 
I started blogging
is that it would be
a place for prayer..
and prayer requests..

My dear friend, Jettie,
is one of the reasons 
I started blogging.
She blogs for books and 
does book reviews with
a bit of her life thrown
in between book reviews.

Here is her lastest post.
I asked for a picture
but she didn't have one
of  Charlie.

Please pray for a 
full recovery for this
young man
(well, young to me)

Last Wednesday, our nephew, Charlie , fell through the roof of a commercial building, where they were repairing the roof.  He hit multiple steel beams on his way down, and landed on concrete on his face.  He is in a drug induced coma in ICU and has many broken bones, and will require facial surgery when they can do it.  He is only 42.  He is the son of hubby's youngest brother. He will have a long recovery, and I am asking that any that will, to put him on prayer list at their church.
Thank You
Jettie

Thank you so much
for your prayers.
Jettie and I
both appreciate it.
Have a blessed,
safe and healthy Tuesday.

That is one of the things I love too about blogging; it makes the world a smaller place and it is always such a privilege to lift others before the Throne. Lifting him up today.

That is very sad, Diana. I will hold positive thoughts that something good will come of this awful tragedy. So young too.

I feel these parents pain, seriously I do. Our youngest boy fell 4 storys whilst working on a job site four years ago and is still stuggling to get his life back on track. The whole family was affected by this awful incident. I will send my prayers for all involved ten fold. Thank you Diana you are a very special soul always reaching out. Cheers SpecialK XoXo
