Today I prayed...

by Durer

For my younger sister, who is recovering from back surgery. It's a long and difficult recovery, and now her beloved dog is also having medical problems. She has four children in the house, aging 8-18, which is both a lot of help and a lot of work.

I prayed for her swift recovery, respite from pain, and maintaining her sense of humor and patience. God has already given her a tremendous amount of strength. I prayed for her family, that they continue to have patience and willingness to help when she needs it. I prayed for her dog's good health and that they find the cause of his troubles, as well as a quick solution.


  1. How awful that she has to deal with the dog's illness on top of everything else! I imagine her kids are very attached to their pup. Although maybe it's, ultimately,a good thing to get all the stressors out of the way at once. Once her family weathers this storm, may they have smooth sailing!

    1. I knew you'd understand, Gal. It's a lot all at once, but they'll make it through okay. Thanks!
