God, please heal this family.
That has been my prayer for the past two weeks it seems; every night I go to Him in prayer begging to make Pat well, heal John's stomach bug...and mine...and Granny Meg's...and Nana's.
Even though our ailments have been pretty minor, it is easy to get overwhelmed with what is going on and feel like I can not take it.
Then Friday Ashley and I just happened to be watching a special called Stand up to Cancer. The show was filled with stories of real people, told mostly by celebrities. It was sweet and sad and put a lot into perspective.
Lord, thank you for our health. Lord, what would I do if my child were terminally ill? God, please be with the man on the show who lost his 4 year old son.
