SUNDAY PRAYER TIME TOGETHER
Today is the Day that the Lord Has Made!
It is a cold, rainy, blustery day here in North Alabama. My House is very quiet on this early Sunday morning.
I'm thinking of those of you who have prayed for Baby Max this past week. Good News, Patricia sends us the following PRAISE!
1)Baby Max Update:
"48 hours after Max' open heart surgery and he is doing well. He still has a long road ahead so if it is not too much to still request prayers, I would like to do so.
Is James and your daughter coming home this week? I have been keeping them in my daily (sometimes several times daily) prayers, too."

2) Jannette reports an exhausting week with her ailing mother and asks that we pray for strength. We love you Jannette
3) JAMES UPDATE:
James and his mother have ONE MORE WEEK of Therapy Boot Camp! Whoo Hoo! James has made astounding progress and here is a picture of him pushing a grocery cart. This is a HUGE accomplishment so let me hear CLAPPING!!

4) How many of you have faced a storm this week? Or perhaps are anticipating a storm to pass your way?
My God is an Awesome God and can meet your every need.
Also, I noticed something yesterday that may or may not have anything to do with Prayer Request Sunday but over the past 2 weeks, I've lost 5 followers. Just like that...and it made me wonder if somehow Prayer Request Sunday had offended someone? I don't plan to stop Prayer Request Sunday because I don't blog for popularity. I do, however, want to be sensitive to those who have chosen to take the time to read my blog. I am human after all so when I look at that "number" it makes me sit up and take notice. It also makes
me painfully aware of a need most of us have and that is the need to be liked. I admit it...I want you to like me. I don't however, want to be someone I'm not just to make people "like" me. After all, we are a bit past High School, aren't we?
The people who count the most are my family. Am I doing everything I need to be doing to meet the needs of my family. My role has changed over the years as have the needs of my growing family. Grandchildren are now my primary focus although my adult children still seem to "need" their Mama. I've retired the "yellow hairbrush" that meted out correction from time to time. No more "grounding" or taking away the car keys. Now, I spend much more time in PRAYER for my family because prayer is my main source of guidance these days. Prayer SHOULD have been my main source all the time but time, age, and wisdom have taught me that sage advice.
So...I will continue Prayer Request Sundays until I feel led to do otherwise. If you have any comments on my thoughts I'd love to hear them. Continue to send me your prayer needs and I will covenant with you to pray.
