I was going to post about a few things I did today that related to giving. I decided that today, they weren't important enough to mention.
Today the most important gift I have given is prayer. Prayer for 2 friends, that are in very different, but very heartbreaking situations.
A friend of mine from high school was told by her husband this week that their marriage is over. They have been married over 20 years and have 3 kids. She is heartbroken, the kids are a wreck. My heart just breaks for this family. I am familiar with divorce and know personally that the effects are far-reaching. Please say a prayer for my friend and her family.
Another friend of mine was admitted into the hospital in the middle of the night last night- she is 23 weeks pregnant. The baby stopped growing about 3 weeks ago- and short of a miracle will not survive. My friend's health is failing- her kidneys are shutting down, and there are other issues. The story is not mine to tell and I hesitate to share many details. I will say that it is a very grave situation. Please say a prayer for their family as the next few days will be very difficult for them. Say a prayer for her health, and for their broken hearts.
