PRAYER UPDATES: Kristen & Baby--Leena's hubby, Jim--bj's hubby, Bill

I was going to do an update 
this coming weekend but decided to go ahead
and update you today.

Thank you for all your prayers
for Kristen & her unborn baby boy.
You can read about that here.

You will be happy to know that 
Kristen delivered a healthy baby boy 
by C-Section this morning.
Thank you for all your prayers.
Even the doctors were worried about them.
On  a sadder note,
I have an update on Leena's hubby, Jim.
The world of medicine has informed Leena
that there is nothing more they can do for Jim.
They are transferring him 
to some type of hospice care.
Please continue to keep him/Leena/family
in your prayers.

And, last but not least,
an update on
our dear bj's (Sweet Nothings) hubby, Bill.
He is home with hospice care.
Please keep them in your prayers as they 
walk the path they are on.

Thanks to all of you that have prayed
and sent well-wishes to them.
Thanks, too, to those of you that 
send your love and support.

If you are not a pray-er, please send
healing thoughts and love their way.

I will keep you posted as I hear more.
Have a wonderful Wednesday.

I plan to be back blogging full time in the next week or so.
Love to all of you- Diana

Diana, I am so thankful for the good news of Kristen and her new baby boy. I feel sad for Jim and Bill. I did not know much about Jim, I prayed that he could get help. BJ's sweet Bill...I have seen and read about him on BJ's blog. It's heart breaking. I will pray for the families of these two men. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Praying for them all. Prayer does work and miracles do happen. We are all immortal until Gods work in us is done. Its all in his time and hands.
Bless everyone reaching out to help these loved ones and keep praying!!!!

I'm so glad that momma and baby are going to be okay.

I don't even have words adequate enough about the others. I'm praying for Leena and Jim. And BJ, my dear friend & Bill... I've been praying constantly for them both.

God Bless them all and you too, Diana for all that you do.

The bitter with the sweet. I will continue praying for all of them. Sweet BJ has always been a favorite blogger friend of mine and I admire her strength. All of them are fighting tough battles . God Bless them. Thanks for the updates Diana.

Wonderful news about the new baby. So sad for BJ and Bill. Keeping them all in my prayers.

Dewena said...

As I read your post, Diana, I remembered back to 2001 when my sisters and I sat in our parents' living room while my niece announced that she was expecting her first baby. We cried tears of bittersweet joy because we knew my father would never see his new great-granddaughter.

Keeping these beautiful souls in my prayers,

Debby said...

So happy to hear the baby wasbornhealthyand assuming mom is okay.
So sad about the others. I will be praying.
I have several that their lives are in limbo from cancer. One is only 30.
I hate cancer.

Prayers for God's blessing on bj and Bill, Leena and Jim as they deal with the day to day of these difficult struggles. May they sense God's loving presence. Praise God for the news of Kristen and her new little son. What a joy. What a blessing! Thank you Diana, for updating us. xo

Connie said...

Very happy to hear the news about the baby, but also very sad . . . for our dear blogging sisters and their husbands. They are in my prayers. Thanks for sending news our way, even if it was hard to do.

Thank you for updating is so hard to hear of these people going through all these hardships...praying God's will for them...

Cecilia Bramhall said...

I am so glad to hear Kristin and her baby are doing well. What a blessing.
But it's sad to hear both Jim and Bill have hit the end of the medical road. I know the families are sad beyond words. I know it's tough to hear that. Hospice is a blessing in those types of things though. Lifting them in prayer.

Vee said...

Thank you for the good news. I like to think that those dear folks who have received these tough words have the time to say goodbye and to share their love and to make everything right with their Heavenly Father. I love Mr. and Mrs. Sweet to pieces though I've never met either one. Their lives just shine. Praying for Jim and his family as well. Peace and comfort for all and and complete.

Billie Jo said...

Thank you for sharing, my friend.
It seems like the cycle of life, right?
A new life beginning...and two dear lives nearing their end.
I will pray for all.

Celestina Marie said...

Thank you Diana for the updates. My prayers continue for all. I will email you tomorrow. I'm off to dreamland!! xo

Chatty Crone said...

I am thrilled about the baby - congrats to them! I am sad for the two men in hospice. I know it is a good program and that I hope the men have an easier time to go home. God is waiting! sandie

Linda said...

I have been praying for Kristin and her baby so I was thrilled to read this update!
Hospice is a blessing. For some reason Louis Dean's first beloved wife made him promise NO HOSPICE!
He kept his promise and had to suffer through that horrible time all alone. I'm grateful these men and their families are getting some help and comfort.

Sylvia said...

Sweet precious boy, thankful to God for answered prayers. Prayers for Jim and Mr.Sweet - Bill, going up!

Richella Parham said...

You are just the best. Thank you for keeping us informed. Thank God for the health of that sweet baby!

I know the news of the husbands with cancer strikes very close to home for you. Bless you for passing along the news to us. Lord, have mercy.

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

What a miracle the baby was born healthy and mom is okay too! They certainly had their challenges. It appears their prayers were answered! I'm so sad to know B.J.'s husband is at this stage. I just read about Leena's husband on your newer post. Prayers for all of them. May God comfort them through these tough times.

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Our God is so good and this is one precious baby!
Sending comforting thoughts and prayers to all who walk the path of sickness and the unknown.
