Time off and Prayer Requests!

Feeling like I need to take a break for a little bit from blogging! I am taking a much needed rest this weekend (hopefully) to TC for my sister! Looking forward to relaxing and not having a schedule! Life is coming down hard right now, and I feel I just need to chill and spend more time in the Word!

Before I go a few prayer requests if you don't mind:

Pray for Jeremiah (again) - he got in trouble today in school. It always seems like we have issues close to school being out, I don't know, just pray for him and wisdom for Steve and I.

I also just saw in the Obituaries that the daughter of a girl I went to school with passed away this weekend! She is the cousin of a good friend so I called her to find out what happened! This dear sweet child was 23 and a mother of 2. Because of choices she made she did not feel able to deal with life, so she took hers! My heart is breaking for her, that she got so bad, and didn't feel the comfort of the Saviour who loves her, that she thought it just wasn't worth living! Pray for her mom and dad, siblings and all relatives involved! Pray for all our young people who don't feel life is worth living!

Lastly pray for clarity for me! I hope to be back after TC, we'll see! (Sorry Judy!)
Psalm 143
A psalm of David.
1 O LORD, hear my prayer,
listen to my cry for mercy;
in your faithfulness and righteousness
come to my relief.
2 Do not bring your servant into judgment,
for no one living is righteous before you.
3 The enemy pursues me,
he crushes me to the ground;
he makes me dwell in darkness
like those long dead.
4 So my spirit grows faint within me;
my heart within me is dismayed.
5 I remember the days of long ago;
I meditate on all your works
and consider what your hands have done.
6 I spread out my hands to you;
my soul thirsts for you like a parched land.
Selah
7 Answer me quickly, O LORD;
my spirit fails.
Do not hide your face from me
or I will be like those who go down to the pit.
8 Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.
9 Rescue me from my enemies, O LORD,
for I hide myself in you.
10 Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God;
may your good Spirit
lead me on level ground.
11 For your name's sake, O LORD, preserve my life;
in your righteousness,
bring me out of trouble.
12 In your unfailing love, silence my enemies;
destroy all my foes,
for I am your servant.

So sorry about your friend's family going through that heartache. And those precious little ones who lost their mama.

Don't be discouraged over Jeremiah. Just hold on. Summer's a coming. And remember how great camp went.

Hope you have a relaxing and rejuvenating time with your sister!

I'm sorry about Jeremiah... Pray, pray ,,, pray... from now until...forever...
