1. My son Jim and his wife and 3 kids lost their beautiful golden retriever Lizzy Lou today. She had Cancer. Jim and Breanne have 3 kids, age 7 to 14, and this is devastating. Lizzy Lou was special and sweet. I loved her a lot. She was always excited to see her "grandma Nancy". I've been crying much of the day. Some may not understand. But pets are family members. 2. Please pray for Ariel to have a sound mind, for his finances, success on his new job at ComCast, for his Salvation, for relationships with others. Also pray about his smoking Marijuana. It is legal in our state (Oregon) but it makes him very moody. Also, I worry it is a gateway drug to worse things. Ariel is a likable young man (26) but analyzes everything we say, always quick to argue with use. Are we being "racial" etc. He is black. 3. Please pray for our friend Nancy Bruinier, a woman in her 60s. I met 8 years ago in a Seniors 50 and older bible study group. She has always had lots of health issues but the last 6 months she has been bombarded with so much she is literally on her death bed. Please pray for complete and total healing from the Heavenly Father. 4. Please pray for our health, finances, marriage relationship and relationships with others. Husband and I need fruits of the spirit and to watch our tongue; to only say kind, nurturing words. To be Christ-like. We want to please God, to be like Him. But we are in the flesh.
