A couple of prayer requests...

It has been a really crazy weekend and I have a few prayer requests for those of you who pray for us so faithfully.

1. Please pray for our friends Ginger and Greg, they just welcomed their amazing son Fionn into the world on Friday night. He has had a few struggles as he was born a couple of weeks early. You can read their story and leave them comments at www.thepittsburghhites.blogspot.com I know they would covet your prayers for their little boy.

2. Please pray for Luke, we took him to an UrgiCare center today because the rash seemed to be getting worse and we still have not gotten a call back from his doctor (which is incredibly frustrating.) They seem to think he has Scarlet Fever. I cannot say that I agree, but I guess I am not a doctor. I have dealt with Scarlet Fever before and this seems nothing like it to me but I am going to take him to his doctor tomorrow to confirm before deciding what to do next. He has NO other symptoms other than a rash. The rash is just on his trunk area. Not on his face or extremities. I kind of thought it might be the fact that we switched laundry soaps so I am rewashing all of his clothes as we speak...(Just what I wanted to do :-)) Please pray that Ben doesn't come down with any of this!

3. Please pray as I meet this week with someone to try and figure out our finances and as I return to work. We know God will take care of our every need. Please just pray that we make wise decisions.

4. Please pray for my dad who hurt his back at work. He works on a road crew. An injured back prevents him from working and he cannot afford that. He is very down in the dumps and could really use your prayers.

5. Please also pray for me as I am dealing with an incredibly awful sinus infection or something. I have been in bed most of the weekend. If I am not better by morning I will be heading to the doctor also.


Thank you all for continuing to lift us up on this unpredictable journey. Sometimes it seems so tough to juggle all of the typical life stuff as well as the grief. I am feeling very easily overwhelmed lately and just knowing that others are praying for my heart and loving us from afar really does make a difference. May God bless you all!

Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. Your boys are all beautiful too. I know I am often a lurker (and follow many of the blogs on your link list), but I really wish you the best in your moving forward with life. I never know what to say in situations like yours' and others' who seem to have such large trials. Only know that I think of you (a complete stranger) often and hope you are healing and finding the joy this life can offer. You seem like a great mom and wife and are so strong considering all you've been through. Continue to hang on and know that our Heavenly Father loves you and wants you to find joy. Best of luck with the rash, we've had scarlet fever before too, (if that is indeed what it is). Not fun stuff no matter what, but so go the joys of motherhood, eh?
