I sent this out in email form, but I wanted to add this too my blog too. Above is a pic of me and my G-Ma, she pretty much rocks this hizzy and she is a passionate Chicago sports fan, which is fun. So I don’t do things like this often, but I really would love for you to help me out on this one. My grandma has been in the hospital for a day or so because she is having some “digestive issues” they were hoping it would pass, but it hasn’t passed. So they are first going in orthoscopically and then if they can’t fix it that way they have to go in for real. Please pray for her and the physicians. My mother who is a health care professional has left work and is currently driving down (my aunt is also going as well) to Warsaw, IN to be with my grandfather while my grandmother is in surgery, and then will be there for post-op. Our family has been very spoiled when it comes to the health of my grandparents (Bob and Louise). They are in tremendous shape for their age. So needless to say, this is a new thing for all of us. Please pray that God would show up in the process and she would come out fine, but more than anything pray that God would use this for bigger things with my family. I’m praying 2 Corinthians 1:3-7 for my grandma, grandfather and family:
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 5 For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too. 6 If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; and if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which you experience when you patiently endure the same sufferings that we suffer. 7 Our hope for you is unshaken, for we know that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in our comfort.
Please pray that my whole family sees Jesus in the midst of this and that they would cling to Him. Please also pray I can talk with her and pray for her before she goes under. Thank you for being you and being involved in my life! Thanks for the prayers too! Please let me know how I can be praying for you….
