Prayer Updates, and a Bible Challenge- Cloak & Dagger





Good Evening to All!

UPDATES AND A BIG THANK YOU!

First, before I get started on my actual post, I want to thank those of you who stop by and check out the "Prayer Line" section of my blog and add some of the names to your prayer lists. I have added some updates. This has been a hard two weeks, as there have been several deaths. I can logically understand when an elderly person passes away,even though it doesn't make their passing any easier, but I tell myself that they have been blessed with a long life. Middle aged people and babies, I have a hard time. I know that God knows what He is doing when not intervening and that He knows what lies down the road of life for each of us, so it never "shakes my faith", but it is still a "hard pill to swallow". Whether it's "life lessons" for us, or to keep a baby or young adult from having to go through a life time of suffering or heartache, or any other reason, and though we KNOW that God is LOVE, it is still hard to accept. Even though I know that we are supposed to "rejoice in the spirit" that our friends and loved ones have made it to their reward and are with Our LORD, it is hard for our human hearts and minds to grasp this feeling. Jude, a young baby had a systemic infection with cardiac involvement and passed shortly after being careflighted to Dallas Children's Hospital. Brother David Hennigan who has been on the Prayer Line ever since I started blogging, passed last week. (That one was especially hard for me because he was my Pastor's close uncle, almost like a dad to him) so it was extremely hard to see how strong my Pastor was trying to be while preaching this morning. A good friend of mine from church, Bill (Bernice) McCurdy passed away a few days ago. My faith is strong. I know that they are all with the LORD now and have no pain or worries. Anyway, thank you for your prayers. I hope that you will continue to pray for their families during this time of sorrow.
