I've been out of the Blogosphere for a little over a month now. It all began with the birth of my youngest grandgirl, Belle. She is a beauty. But she is deeply in need of prayer.
I mentioned a couple weeks ago that she had been hospitalized for tests. The doctors felt as though they had her on a path of healing with medication and a different formula. She is not responding as well as they had hoped and more testing will be done on the 2nd. At her one month visit yesterday, a couple other issues were discovered...none all too serious, but they do exist and must be addressed.
I'm asking for continued prayer for not only Belle, but for her parents as well. Not to mention her two big sisters. This young family is in a tough place right now. It's difficult enough to have a 3 year old and 2 year old in the house with a newborn, but add medical issues on top makes it all the more challenging. It is a blessing to see the strength J & K pull from prayer. I know they are beyond exhaustion, both physical and emotional.
It's funny to listen to people gripe, in the course of a day... oh the woes of so many, who truly are not suffering at all. Oh my, a Weeping Cherry tree died in their yard or they have some scale on a Rhodo or we did not install their Leylands within 2 weeks and they are furious...screaming like a Banshee. Get a grip. Deal. Your life is damn good. Give thanks. I look at these people and chuckle under my breath. I'd like for them to hold my grandgirl, this tiny little person who is unable to keep food in her body.
Let's all try a little harder to keep life in perspective. What do we have to complain about? What are our hardships? To those of you I know live with genuine troubles, I will remain your prayer warrior. For the rest who have difficulty with the slightest bit of adversity...D-E-A-L!
