Regardless

Just a short post for a prayer request. A friend in cardigans is ill and needs as many prayers as we can send her way.

Julie was taken to the hospital yesterday with what was orginally thought to be a stroke. Instead it was seizures but they don't have any idea what is causing them, so for now she's sedated and in ICU. Fortunately, the unfortunate up side(if you can call it that), is that upon running tests, they also found a small tumor at the base of her brain. That's not causing the seizures and will be operated on later. Please keep Julie, Dave and their families in your prayers.

I know that there are people who read this blog, pretending you don't. I also know of those people, many have personal agendas against many others.

.....regardless of those agendas, spats, hates, or just plain dislikes, a person in need, is just that, a person. Put yourself in the same situation. What would you prefer? Someone, anyone, anywhere, offering up a simple prayer in your name, for healing and that God's will be done, or rejecting a prayer because you feel too good for that person to be concerned for your well being.
Rejecting a simple offer without a need for something in return. Selfless giving of an unknown person for you.....

...regardless, know that someone is praying for you each and ever day, if you like it or not.

I will post updates as they get forwarded to me and say a simple pray tonight just because you can.

Later gators....

Oh no. Poor Julie...does she have someone to help with the dogs so that Dave can focus on her?
