A PRAYER REQUEST FOR A STAY-AT-HOME MOM

I love it when people I know
ask me to post a 
PRAYER REQUEST!

I have been following this sweet lady
and her family for quite a while.
She is just one of the sweetest people
I know!
This is JILL from
Isn't she pretty?

I took this picture off her sidebar 
so it is not MY photography skills, 
this time, folks!

Her blog is warm & welcoming
and full of family life.

Jill is having some pretty extensive 
abdominal surgery
tomorrow-Monday.
She is a woman of faith
 but
even those of us that are full of faith
have times when we are scared---
when all those horror stories 
we have heard about surgeries gone wrong
assault us.

Please pray for a successful surgery 
and please pray for 
PEACE OF MIND
for Jill.

To add to her anxiety,
her oldest daughter has been having
a lot of health issues and they 
cannot nail down what is wrong.

AND
her husband has an injury that is going 
to require surgery in the near future.
That is a LOT going on in one family, folks.


Isn't it true that when
IT RAINS IT POURS?

Please SHOWER THEM with
PRAYERS.
If you are not a PRAY-er,
please send up good thoughts 
and  well wishes.

They do have one 
GREAT BRIGHT SPOT
their sweet red-headed daughter,
KATHLEEN.
She fills their hearts with joy.
Thank all of you that
are such faithful and wonderful
followers.
My blog would be nothing 
without all of you.
YOU are part of my BLESSINGS
and I have come to know 
and love many of you
on a more personal level!

I will be back with the results
of the 
in a day or so.

Still time to pick a place!

Praying for the family! That is a lot going on but God is faithful. Yes, we all have times when we are afraid but God has promised never to leave or forsake those that put their trust in Him.

You are such a kind-hearted person for putting out prayer requests for your friends and family. I will say a prayer for Jill and her family. Heartbreaking when you hear how some families have so much going on at once.

Praying for this precious family. All of this is scary in itself, let alone all at one time. You are such an awesome prayer warrior. Thanks for all you do.

God is in the healing business.....fret not, God's got it!

Debby said...

Oh she does need prayers.

Michele said...

Her entire family is in my prayers today and in the next few days. Do let us know all went well, as this is in our Merciful God's hands!

Her daughter has the best hair - oh I so love that color. ♥♥♥ And she has the sweetest smile. And it looks like she is about to make a delicious treat, so she is EXTRA special!!

Please pray for one of our church's religious ed (for elementary aged children) whose only child, a daughter was in a horrible auto accident and died yesterday. She was on the circular loop around the city- and her car just stopped working - and she couldn't get over in time and a semi hit the car and it rolled. So sad, just in her twenties. The entire Parish is heart-broken.

I started following Jill just as she and her family were moving to NC...not far from where I am. I didn't know about these health issues that are going on. Thank you for posting this prayer request, Diana....prayers are on the way!

Connie said...

Hi Diana, thanks for letting us know of this need for prayer. I am praying for Jill and her family . . . times like thee can bring fear into our hearts, but the Lord is in control. He not only loves us but He likes us, too . . . and I know that he will be right there in the surgery with her.
I like what Louise said, God's got it!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I'll keep her and her family in my prayers too. What a difference we can make...praying for each other. Sweet hugs, Diane

I am praying.

Kelly said...

I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers. Yes, when it rains it pours. That is Murphy's law I think. I don't like Murphy.

Diana, I will stop now and pray for Jill's surgery tomorrow, for God to give her doctor's wisdom and for her to feel a deep peace of mind. Thank you for passing along this to all of us.

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

Diana, I pray for Jill that God will Bless her and keep her strong for herself and her family. You are always so kind to spread the word and help those in need. Thank you for sharing Jill's story. I'm reminded to be more thankful for my situation when I see that others are also in need of prayer and understanding.

Bless you Angel.
Hugs,
Sissie

PS. I will be sending your package out soon.

Cynthia said...

I pray everything goes well. Life sure does test us all. I still can't comprehend why these things happen. It isn't right and always want an answer as to why good people seem to be dumped upon with so much

Hi Diana, I saw this post in my inbox and had to take a moment from vacation to leave my comment of love and prayers for Jill and her family. I have known Jill for sometime. She and her sweet family are truly precious. I am so sorry to read the challenges set before them at this moment but I know God will see them through it all. My prayers will be on going for Jill's surgery to go well and she recover quickly.
Thank you for posting this Diana. I know the thoughts and prayers from blogland will make a difference. xo

Oh, I know that fear of surgery so I extend my prayers to your sweet friend Jill and her family for what they are all going through. It is just as hard to sit in the waiting room during the surgery as having it! I hope someone near to her gives her some peace about it all and that she really knows her faith can see her through to the other side of it. You are so sweet to start this prayer chain for her! xoxo
