discipline and training of oneself, usually for improvement

Please pray that I would have this, in healthy balance, in reality, and in all parts of my life.

Prayer and Survival

I know I am blessed. I survived the week of sisterhood, loving the end of the day when I would be at home alone, able to sleep in peace.

Prayer abounds for so many, but these are on my list: Judy--she keeps herself really, really, really busy--and I still don't think she's taken time to grieve. Daniel, LeeAnn, Damascus, and baby D--for continued trust and hope in the Lord's provision. My friend Ever--just left home for the first time and did it with gumption (!)--that she also trusts that the Lord provide what He knows she needs. For the families of the missing in Minneapolis after the bridge collapse--the waiting is the worst. For Erika, Jeremy, Sara, Jason, and any others I may have forgotten--that their time serving the Lord in the far corners of the world is fruitful. For David in the hospital down in San Antonio--that he continues to heal and his family & friends continue to bravely believe that this too, is the Lord's plan & timing for him.

Amen & amen.
