Prayer is a tricky subject, for some of us we pray regularly and for others we pray when in crisis. I used to be a crisis prayer but I’m moving towards being more regular with it. There is so much in life to be thankful for and I don’t want to always be the person that prays because something is wrong. As a kid growing up we ate dinner at the table together and always said prayer. There was no tv to distract us, we were a family and we talked about our day. This is a tradition David and I are working to create in our own family. I’m learning to go beyond the typical prayers I learned as a child and to speak from my heart. This past week has been hard, my prayers have solely been focused on my sister in law and praying for her to recover and be well again. I know that I might not always be eloquent in my prayers but my heart is behind my words. I’m currently out of the office until further notice as I flew to Charleston, SC to be with my family to support her. We are anxiously waiting for David to get here so we can be here together as a family and lend our strength and support to her. As soon as I heard how sick she was I called friends and family and asked for them to pray for her. The outpouring of good will and prayer from friends is overwhelming and I believe that those caring prayers willl keep us all moving forward.
I’ll keep this short but please keep sending those prayers and good thoughts, they are greatly appreciated. Thank you!
