Asking for prayer for my neighbor...

This is not my usual kind of post...

I am fortunate to have a wonderful neighbor, who has been a blessing to my household for the 19 years we have lived here.

We watched her kids grow up and get married, we took care of each others horses and critters when one of us went on vacation.

 My neighbor "L", has been a leader in the County 4-H program, and had her own farm full of various critters, including goats and horses.

For the last year or so she has been fighting an agressive cancer. She has a love of antiques, her living room is a testimony to that!  She is also a quilter, who has been making quilts as her therapy during this time.

For me, other then by being as good a neighbor as I can, I feel so helpless... other then to pray for her and her family.

Since I believe in prayer and a loving God who answers prayer, I ask for you to join me in prayer for L.

I have been told the prognosis is not good...but until God takes her home, I pray for a miraculous healing.

And if he chooses to take her home, I pray he takes away the pain of the cancer at this time, and comforts her, and her family.

She is a wife, a mother and a grandmother,  and a good friend and neighbor...

I appreciate your prayers joining with mine for L.

Hugs,

Jan

Jan,
I will surely say a prayer for your neighbor. I just lost my cousin last week, and she was living with her illness for a long time. Thinking of you today,
