Hello again my friends.
In the middle of the fanfare over GOYB, I'm sadly reminded that our lives do indeed go on. It's fun to sing Sexy boots yeah hey hey, but then reality comes knocking. That being said, I'm requesting your thoughts and whathaveyou for two things.
Firstly, a cousin of mine is going through a rough time on account of her husband who's husband is now in the terminal stages of brain cancer. The doctors had done an operation to remove a tumor but now something's come back. The couple have three kids all around 7 yrs old. I'm not really close to this cousin but I'm human enough to know that she really needs grace for this period, and whatever transpires.
Secondly, a man in my church is going through a bit of a rut on account of some complications with his eyesight. He's essentially lost sight in both of his eyes and has many liver problems as well. His family just moved from overseas and thus, his disability prevents him from earning income for the family. Due to this, the family's experiencing some financial obstacles as well. Additionally, one of his sons has essentially turned into a bit of a cynic, very estranged from his family and his church community and such. As much as I'm requesting prayer for the man, I'm requesting prayer for the son as well; I hope he'll be able to find his way, realizing the value of community at such times as this. Whatever he's looking for, I hope he finds it.
Oh no be strong,
