Prayers for a Dear Friend

Lisa just called to let me know that a dear friend needs us to pray. Jeannie and her husband own Area127, a homeschool curriculum store based out of Northern California.
I do not have all the details but I will tell you that her husband has had several strokes and things are looking very serious.
Jeannie has posted in my comments section quite often as she has been praying for our family. I just saw her and her husband at the local homeschool convention.
When I told Goose his response was "I bought him a Starbucks this past weekend!" My response was "Yes, just like we hugged dad good-bye and then he never came home again.". Life changes in the blink of an eye.
We all say that life is like a vapor or a "flower quickly fading" but we rarely give creedance to this thought until it hits our home or someone close to us. Hopefully this blog has encouraged many of you to live life to its fullest and not waste time with things that do not matter.
We have no idea what tomorrow brings....or the next moment. The person you bought a coffee for today could be in the hospital tomorrow.
So, if you would, please pray for miraculous healing and peace for the family as they walk according to God's will.

Thanks Heather. They are a sweet family. We will be praying. Also want you to know that I don't always know what to say but I am always thinking about you and praying for you sister.

I cannot believe it has been 6 months since Eric went home. It is beautiful to see God's strength through you. Keep looking up!

Love and prayers,
~Rebecca

I will be praying. Your words are so true. We all need to cherish each other a little more each day. Because one day, they won't be here to cherish anymore. Or we won't be here to do the cherishing. So true that this life is like a vapor...
