Prayer Request, Please

I just wanted to ask for your prayers...my husband's grandfather just passed away earlier today...we'll be travelling up north to be with family for the next week. This is the 3rd grandparent we've lost between us in 11 months! So, if you would, we sure could use your prayers for the family and for safety in travel. We know Grandpa was a believer, and we're thankful for his long, good life, and the wonderful Christian example he set for the family.

Thanks, and I'll be back to visit with you all next week!

Hi there Stacey, It's never easy to lose those that we love. Especially because we'll be the one's without them. It's tough to lose as much as you have in the last 11 months. As they say, when it rains, it poors. I'll be praying for you and your hubby. On the bright side, how cool is it that you both had grandparents that long? Lots of prayers to you. Take care.

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Thinking about you and your family. You will most definitely be in my prayers. We had a year like yours in 2003, with three deaths in the family. It's so hard to say good-bye. But so glad for the knowledge that we will all be together again one day.
Take good care,
M.L.
