I need you to pray for LINDA

I know I have asked for a lot of prayer this week, but I need some more! My boss who is just a WONDERFUL person isn't doing very well. She has lupus. She is in the hospital with pneumonia and congestive heart failure. This women means the world to me.

My mother passed away 5 years ago from cancer. Fran and I took care of her. It broke our hearts. Instead of taking care of her to get her well we were preparing her for heaven. We took care of her in my home. I was with her when she took her last breath. If you would have asked me 6 months before that if I could step in and do that I would of told you NO! I have learned from all of the losses we have had to endure (my dad, brother, nephew, best friend and others) that there is an inner strength in all of us. I believe it is God holding our hands and perhaps even carrying us in our time of need. Anyway, after my mom died I just wanted to crawl in bed and shut out the world. The only reason I did get out of bed was for my son for he was only 8 at the time. My whole life had changed. Life would never be the same. Then about a year later I got this job. My boss Linda is my kindered spirit. I have told her many times that I think God brought us together. I was in a deep black hole and this women brought me out of it. It was like I came to life again. She reminds me so much of my mom because she is the kindest, sweetest and most giving person I have ever met.

I beg of you to please, get on your knees and pray for my sweet friend. Please, if you can will you please ask others to pray for her too? Add her to your prayer chain at church, tell your friends, your family or add it to your blog. bj over at sweet nothings has made something for your sidebar if you would like to add it I would really appreciate it. I need THE POWER OF PRAYER. Thanks You SO MUCH!

Morning you two....so many people are hurting and needing prayer these days...but God will move for them...I agree with you in prayer even now as I type that according to His word I ask that God touch & heal..may He breath on every cell and fiber of their being from the crown of their heads to the soles of the feet...let recreative miracles take place and let new strength & faith begin this very minute & with each passing hour let them be made whole..in Jesus name we pray Father and we give you all the honor & glory...we know not what to do in these troubled times Lord but our eyes are upon you & we thank you for your love & mercy in our lives....

My sister and I also lost our mother two years ago to cancer...she and I were the ones who cared for her in those last months. One of the hardest things I've ever done is to watch my mother leave me...

II will certainly pray for your dear and cherished friend! God bless her and both of you girls!

I just prayed for her...God is good and He will provide the strength we need...as you stated so well in your post.

Thanks for stopping by...it's a priviledge to lift up a sister in prayer. My cousin has Lupus, she has lots of tough days...thought I had it at one point.

bj said...

Oh, dear darling girl...thank you so much for sending the sign.
I am in bed with my lap top and a very upset stomach...have had it and a headache since the weekend so am sure it is a virus. I have your money ready to send but no stamps and as soon as I can go to the post office, I will have it in the mail...most likely, tomorrow (Friday).
