My Prayer for you

May God give you courage
May He keep you strong
May His Presence fill you
When pain steals your song
May His whisper within you
Be your power and might
And gently sustain you
When you cannot fight
May His goodness and mercy
Guide you through the vale
And comfort you always
For His love will not fail

I'm off to visit my sister-in-law who has had many years of hospital visits
and suffering due to an accident where her body was severely broken after
being hit by a drunk driver. She is one of the most beautiful people I am blessed to know.
In spite of daily reasons not to, still she has forgiven him and lives with joy.

If you read this, and if you feel led to, would you pray a special prayer for Karen and her family?
God bless~

  5. Megan, We really appreciate that. they are narrowing it down to a few things now, but still have not definitely diagnosed the reason for her pain.

    She is a trooper, by the grace of God! so is her family.
