I'm postponing our study for today because we need to join two of our Christian sisters in prayer. I will post excerpts for you here.
Belinda is a treasured follower who blogs at The Seam Rippers. Here is her email to me:
I wanted you to know why I haven't been active on the Bible study. My son-in-law is in ICU with what they believe is Sepsis and he is critical. I can't really even think straight right now. I know you don't worry about holding us accountable, but I didn't want you to wonder what was going on. We are having to keep our 4yo grandson around the clock so my daughter can stay with her husband. He is on a respirator and they are keeping him sedated. It's a scary time for us and I'd appreciate it so much if you would pray for strength and healing.Please join me in lifting up these folks in prayer, and asking God to guide the doctors, as well.
The second urgent request is for Tonya, who began this study blog years ago. Her blog that outlines the situation with her husband's illness is here. Here is her latest:
I shut the shop down the other day because I cannot seem to get the shipping accurate.Please pray for these ladies, their loved ones, families, and doctors. Ask our Father to bless them with recovery, and for the opportunity to witness to those around them to the reality of God's love and peace.
But tonight I decided that I am leaving it closed for a bit. With my husband declining as he is, I am just getting further and further behind and taking longer and longer to get the orders out. He just spent a crazy couple of weeks in the hospital, I will blog about it on the other blog this weekend when I have more time. Oh and the store! yes I opened it, but not like I would have liked. Lots of closed days because of the dear hubster.
More later, this was just a fast hey to let you know I am not gone forever...I just am gone for a short hiatis to tend to him.
God bless you both, Belinda and Tonya.
