ONE REQUEST


I do value the friendships I have made with so many dear, sweet souls through this blog. God has pointed me in the direction of some friends that feel as close to me as if we sat down face to face and talked daily. So, I will freely ask you for a favor.

There are several things that cause me to be a little anxious about this trip. Moving...packing...school...health, etc. But those will be what they will be. I am sure the builder has all the info he needs, and if not he has our number. Got my meds all filled, and I'm expecting to have the strength I need to enjoy this trip. But, Alex is the thing that concerns me most. I am blessed to have Mom and Pop to look after him. Also, Adam and Suzanne, and Ian. And Joy and Tommy. They will take care of whatever he needs, and I trust them to do that. Would you pray with me please, that he will have some good days while we are gone? Pray that his pain will lessen. It has been at an all time high lately. Pray that he will rest at night, and that he keeps on his strict med schedule. Nothing could make me enjoy this trip anymore than to know that he is doing well at home.

I thank you in advance, because I know you are praying friends! I will talk to you soon....Aloha

Starting those prayers now...I can picture the Holy Spirit attending to his every need. Holding him and rocking him in the middle of the night. The Shepherd with his wounded lamb, carrying him while attending to the needs physically, spiritually, and emotionally. May Alex feel the sweet arms of Jesus in your absence that will stand as an "Ebenezer" of a time so sweet as to feel the embrace of God.

Please know that Alex is on my daily prayer list. I pray for comfort and a release from pain during this time. I also pray for his wisdom and the wisdom of others to adhere to his medication schedule. We are all lifting these concerns up to the Lord; I know our prayers will be answered... and I'm sure I speak for others, too...we love you...we continue to pray for you & your family...and we want you to relax and have a wonderful time with your fabulous husband...you deserve it!

Alaho...and many blessings...
Teresa

I am praying that you and your husband are able to enjoy yourself and are able to come back rested and refreshed.
I pray that Alex gets relief from the pain and that he always feels God's presence during his trials.
I pray that God equips those around Alex while you are gone with the knowledge they need to best care for him in your absence.
Smiles and Hugs!

Wow, I'm really sorry I didn't see this in time to comment before you left. Yes, I will pray for Alex this week - and for you. Every time he comes to my mind I cry out to God to pour out His sweet mercy on Alex.
