 PERSONALLY I HAVE SOME NEEDS THAT ARE OVERWHELMING ME.  BUT MORE THAN THAT, I KNOW PERSONAL FRIENDS THAT HAVE LIFE OR DEATH situations.  I have a very close friend that is in the scariest situation of her life regarding a grandchild and there are no easy or cheap answers. 

    In just the last month, I have
had a good friend diagnosed with MS, a friend that fell off a 10 foot ladder and has already had three surgeries.  I know a family I thought was a ROCK, calling it quits. 

My precious Jack and Parker are moving to another city because of a job transfer. My heart is broken into a million pieces. 

My husband has had some health issues.  A dear friends beloved Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer last week. 

My son had to put his 16 year old dog put to sleep yesterday and that hurts. 

A preacher I had great respect for did what a lot of preachers do. I have a close friend that has a problem that is going to cost 1000'a in legal bills to keep her grandchild safe. 

Precious little Ashley is in bad shape.....
Crew from my other blog, that so many of you have fallen in love with  has been sick again and ANY sick is  serious with him.   

I have a dear friend with major kidney problems...Her kidneys are functioning at 35%. 
I have a relationship problem with a close family member that on the surface looks impossible and it is someone I though cared about me.  That is just my little circle.

I have a feeling you could write a list just like this. 

I don't do the Linky thing well but in your you comments please leave any prayer requests......I promise to pray.  Life is hard.  

and ending with

I AM BACK TO BLOGGING....I HAVE MISSED EACH OF YOU SO VERY MUICH...Would you believe we leave Saturday for Christmas Market in Dallas........Where has this year gone?

As I read, I prayed. Some days overwhelm me....I too have a friend with a seemingly impossible situation with her grandchild. I would love for you and your readers to pray for God's blessings on them.

The quote about never TRULY understanding something until it happens to you........unfortunately, it's true. I am there with the grandbabies moving. NOTHING much has broken my heart more....praying, because I understand...and I wish I didn't.

Teresa, As soon as I am done writing my comment I am getting down on my knees for everyone you listed. My tears are flowing and it seems to be that kind of a day in the blog world for me. So many requests for prayer. My heart is really feeling the pain of your Jack and Parker moving away. They are your heart, they are what keeps you breathing each day. Please know that I care. ((HUGS))

Hey, sweet lady! Looks like you're already getting revved up for the coming holidays. I just can't wait for Christmastime, I love it so much!

Teresa, I have missed you so very much. I have just been too sick to write over the last year or so and things don't seem to be getting any better. However, the Lord really put you on my heart today and now I see why. I will most definitely be praying for all your prayer concerns.

I totally know how it feels to be separated from your precious grandchildren. I haven't seen my two grandsons in quite some time, close to 2 years. In fact, due to some long, difficult circumstances, I don't think they even know who I am. *sniff, sniff* That, coupled with this terrible illness that keeps getting worse, just makes me so sad and depressed. Some days, I just don't how I can go on. However, I manage to pull myself together and remember that these things are only temporary in the grand scheme of things. I have to trust that our great big God has a wonderful plan for my life...I just can't see it all right now. That's what keeps me going day by day!

In addition to my progressive illness, I'd like everyone to pray for my cousin, Jon, who has just been diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer. He is in his mid 50's and has a wonderful wife, two grown children and several grandchildren. The cancer is too large to operate on at this time (the doc said it was about the size of a peanut butter jar!) Therefore, they are going to start chemo and radiation to see if they are able to shrink it enough to do the operation.

My last request is for a friend who is also an elder at our church. He just started having headaches recently and when he went in for an evaluation, he learned that he has Stage IV Brain Cancer. He is in his early 40's and is married with two teenage daughters. Needless to say, this is a very scary time for them.

I would really appreciate everyone lifting these wonderful, Godly people up in prayer...and I will do the same for the rest of you.

Thanks so much! Hope to be back soon to visit more!

Take care of you and keep looking up!

P.S. I found you on Pinterest and can't wait to look at all of your boards! Look for me, I'm on there, too!
