Special request

I just received some bad news. Both a grandchild and a friend of Sylvia's (one my closest blogging friends) just passed away. Out of respect to Sylv, her friend, and the family I won't go into too many details. But I ask you to keep them all in your prayers.

Sylv, do stay encouraged. Always be mindful that God is an endless source of strength; even when things are the most painful and the most difficult. Remember Psalms 46.

Sylvia: if you're reading this, my prayers are with you as well.

Megan said...

Sylvia, may God's light shine on your and yours during this dark and difficult time. My prayers are extended to you as well.

Cynthia said...

I express the same sympathies as the room. Sylvia, I'm sorry for your loss. I pray that God's strength will help you to sustain during this difficult time.

Kenya said...

Sylvia, I hope this isn't ackward seeing as though I don't know you. But I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I pray that you will emerge from this through God's healing touch. Be well.

i'm just getting over here, and i really appreciate you and thank you Andre for the special prayer request, and i likewise appreciate and thank each one of you for your prayers and kind inspiring words.

i don't mind sharing: my 3-month old grandson died on May 6th of SIDS, and Pat, who had been my friend for 21 yrs was diagnosed with leukemia in january. she was in the latter stages at that point, and the drs had only given her 3-6 months to live, but we were really holding out in faith and hope. she fought a good fight, and her course was finished. please continue to keep those families in prayer.

thanks again for your support here.
