Requesting Prayer...

Today... I'm simply asking for your prayers. We all have special people in our lives that struggle with health concerns. Sometimes the diagnosis comes unexpectedly and other times we might anticipate it - but nevertheless, it is overwhelming for that person affected as well as their families.

I'm all about trying to share uplifting stories here. But I've learned through this venture that there are mighty prayer warriors out there - so I'm asking for you to do just that - pray.

Please pray for these very special people in our lives, our dear friends and family- who have all been given sad news this week.

The Gift of Faith Having a Place in Your Life

As a knot appears unexpectedly in a thread, so disappointment blocks the smoothness of life. If a few deft strokes can untangle the skein, life continues evenly. But if it cannot be corrected, then it must be quietly woven into the design. Thus, the finished piece can still be beautiful - even though not as perfect as planned.

For any weaving that needs to be done, God sends the threads. - Italian proverb

May your day be blessed and remember where there is good health - there is great wealth.

Blessings, Cathy

I'll be praying for your friends and family!

One of my pastors once shared with me that our lives our like tapestries.
We see the underside ~ full of knots and tangles ~ but God sees the beautiful design of the tapestry.
We just have to trust Him to complete His work.

I love your "anonymous" quote - thanks for sharing it!

Marie's pastor's tapestry "words of wisdom" are just beautiful, and so true. We had a pastor once that quite often used the phrase "Instead of worrying, we ought to pray." I have tried to put that into practice. At first you have to make a conscious effort, then praying becomes second nature.
I will certainly remember your friends and family in my prayers.
