Prayers For My Friend Laurie's Husband Please

I know a lot of my followers
also follow
Laurie's blog

Laurie, as many of you know,
has had a lot of trauma in
her life in the past few
years.....a head injury 
caused by someone
that left her with
permanent brain damage
and limited sight.
In spite of all that,
she has a positive attitude
and still paints and blogs.

However,
This last bit of news from her
is devastating and I offered
to put out a call for prayer
for her hubby, Garry.
I am linking back to the post
about him here...but his
condition has worsened since
that post.

Please, please, please
take a moment to 
lift his name up in prayer...
asking for a successful surgery
and a calm spirit for Laurie.
She is scared and
beside herself with
anxiety.

Thank you so much.
I know it will bring her
some peace.

If you have a moment
pop by her blog and 
let her know we are
all supporting her.
Thank  you guys- 
you're the best!

Edited to add this email
from Laurie:
Garry had another episode last night, pulse went crazy blood pressure 210 over 110, we went to emerge and they kept him, not sure whats going to happen, things are unstable, you are so kind , he is the tough guy act ALL the time, a call for prayers would be much appreciated, thank you so much.I believe in the power of prayer and I must admit I just was so exhausted today that I just asked the Lord to take over because I have all my trust in him.

I hardly ever check my Facebook wall. Maybe once or twice a week if I think about it. I looked today and saw the call for prayers for Laurie and her husband. I am so grateful I saw the messages so I can send prayers her way. Thanks for posting about this too. I wasn't aware because I am so bad about keeping up with my comments. My heart is in my feet.

Oh no, on my way and lots of prayers.

Diana
I consider Laurie one of my favorite blogging pals too.
I'll definitely be praying fr her hubby and her.
Thanks for keeping us updated.

Connie said...

Hi Diana, you are a true friend indeed and I think that it is wonderful that you would open up your heart and bring Laurie forward for prayer. She is also one of my blogging friends and my heart goes out. Of course I will put her and her husband in my prayers. This is another reason why blogging has become so important and excellent . . . the exchange of love, prayer, and encouragement. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Also in regard to your thoughtful comment left on my blog:
I am overjoyed that my bedroom re-do is so popular. I had a lot of fun doing it, but it was a lot of work and the older I get the longer it takes to re-coop afterwards. You know, by the time I was finished with the room, I was behind on the laundry, and cleaning. By the time I got all that caught up I was dead to the world. I have this strong willpower that keeps me going until I get everything completed, but my body is getting older that my will power. It's hard to make the changes that are necessary as we age. Slowing down has never been in my vocabulary . . . but my Steve is trying to put it there, LOL. Have a wonderful week, Connie :)
