PLEASE PRAY FOR CONNIE'S HUSBAND, STEVE...AND FOR CONNIE.

Many of you know Connie from her blog
CRAFTY HOME COTTAGE

Connie and I are not only blogging friends.
We keep in touch because
we both have husbands
that deal with health issues.
Not only does it have an effect
on the patient,
it also takes its toll on the caregiver.

Steve is in need of prayer.
He is a very private person,
so it is hard to be open about
how ill he is.
Cancer has ravaged his body
and, at this point,
hospice has been called in.


Above he is shown with Connie
in happier times.
He is the love of Connie's life,
her soul mate, her courage,
her love and her life.

Please pray for Steve & for Connie.
There is a hard path ahead of them.
It is a path none of us wants to walk.
The days and nights will be long,
but still, too short.

If you don't pray, please send
good wishes and thoughts their way.
Connie will be happy to know that
she has people here standing beside her,
sending her love.

As always, thank you all so much
and I will keep you filled in as/when
I know more.
