prayers for a family in need of prayers!

Do you ever just go from blog to blog and find yourself fully engrossed in someone else's life that you've never met? Well, happens to me fairly frequently. Yesterday, or the day before, I came across (actually, I'd like to say that God led me to) a blog from a young couple from NC.

In a nutshell, here's what they are facing:
Nate (husband) and wife (Tricia) just had their first child (Gwyneth) at just 24 weeks of gestation. Tricia has Cystic Fibrosis and as a result her lungs are in bad shape and she is in need of a double lung transplant. The drs did a c-section last week to relieve her body of Gwyneth.... who by the grace of God is surviving. Tricia didn't do too well during the surgery (which was actually to put her on a vent but resulted in an emergency c-section) and continues to be under sedation. Please pray for this family; both Tricia and Gwyneth's physical health and Nate as he juggles two precious people both in fragile states.

Thanks guys... I know they would appreciate it! Here's his blog: http://cfhusband.blogspot.com/

I just started reading his blog last night, amazing how God works through all of us.

I know what you mean about ending up on a friend of a friend of a friend's blog (that's how I ended up here =). You are right - God may put these blogs in our pathway - anytime we find something on our hearts and minds, we should pray big time!

Oh, and I loved Mark of the Lion series by Rivers. Great stories and neat Christian fiction (and I don't read much of this genre). Just a suggestion!

What a small world! My mom's best friend is great friends with this family. Wow, it is so neat how God works! What a story, I cannot believe how much this family has been through over the past several weeks alone.
