A Very Special Prayer Request

I received an e-mail from my cousin, Ms. Stephanie, requesting prayer for a co-worker of hers. This precious lady lost her eight-year old son, Joseph, due to complications from e-coli. He also has a twin brother, Jesse, who is grieving the loss of his brother and best friend. I am including the link to the article so that you can read the story for yourself.
This truly makes all my little petty problems seem so trivial, and makes me feel even worse for complaining. I cannot even begin to imagine what this family is going thru.
Please, please keep this family in your prayers.
This might seem like a strange verse of scripture to use during this time....but, for those of you who have experienced death of a loved know why I chose it....God can do ANYTHING....and He can turn our grief and pain into joy....and comfort us like no other!!!
Jeremiah 31:13b (NLT)
I will turn their mourning into joy. I will comfort them and exchange their sorrow for rejoicing.
In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!


  1. His family and friends will be in my prayers

  2. Only me again - I saw your question about installing the backgrounds. I thought I'd respond here as well incase you can't find the post on my blog.

    Maybe I need to edit that post to explain it better so thanks for pointing that out.

    To answer your questions - just replace the text which reads YOUR IMAGE URL HERE with the image link. Make sure you don't delete the quote marks though as your code must be enclosed in them.

    You need to use the Photobucket link which starts with http://www.....

    Does that help?

  3. All their prayers are with us as well. You may want to try We submitted a prayer request for our mom who was very sick. The Church of the Holy Sepulcher is a very important place for all of us. The LORD is with us and you. God bless.
