What’s Inspiring You This Week?
Here’s What’s Inspiring Me…
Inspiration From God’s Word – Lessons In Faith
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
The evidence of things not seen.

A Humble Prayer Request – From My Family To Yours
Several weeks ago, my sister-in-law was rushed to the hospital
Where she began a fight for her life.
She didn’t know it at the time though.
Shortly upon entering the ICU ward,
She went into a coma, which lasted for more than a week.
The doctors had a lot of theories about what might be happening
But no real answers to the nature or cause of her condition.
The outlook was grim.
They told us to brace for the worst.
At that time, words I heard during my quiet time gently came to mind:
Prayer can accomplish what people cannot.
And so, I asked those closest to me to pray.
They did and a miracle occurred.
To the doctors amazement – she survived –
Though at great cost.
Because of clotting, she lost her arm in the process.
This week, we received more bad news.
The new doctor on her case told us she may never walk again.
He also wants her transferred from the safe confines of the hospital
(Where her previous doctors said she needed to stay long-term)
To a long-term rehab facility which we have great concerns about.
In moments like these, our faith is tested.
In moments like these, we must ask ourselves:
Do we truly walk by faith or by sight?
And so, dear friends, I implore you –
If you are among my faith-filled friends in this community:
Please pray for my sister-in-law’s safety and continued healing.
Please pray that she is able to walk and care for herself again.
Please pray for wisdom on her doctor’s part in treating her.
Please pray that we are able to place her in a safe facility when the time comes.
Thank you for your support!

We’d also like to say good-bye and celebrate the life of our
Dear friend Judy Haughton-James, who has gone to heaven to
Be reunited with her beloved twin sister Janine.
