Faithful Fridays ~ Prayers

Hi everyone!  It's Friday--you know what that means!  :)  Before I start today's post, though, I wanted to give a shout-out to anyone out there who likes the movie War Horse.  :)  We rented it last night and watched it...and of course, I fell asleep during it, so I'm going to watch it again today, Lord Willin'!  :)  I didn't realize until yesterday that Tom Hiddleston (AKA Loki) played a part in that movie!  Not to be a spoiler, but...I didn't like the way his character ended.  :(  If you guys have seen the movie, you know what I'm talking about.  :)

Anyway, on with today's post!

I started Faithful Fridays so that Christians could have one designated day (although, of course, we shouldn't have to keep it to one day) a week to share something from their Faith--a prayer request, answered prayer, Bible verse, song, poem, or just something God's laid on your heart. Just grab the button above (which unfortunately doesn't link to my blog automatically, you'll have to put the link), make your post, then leave a comment letting me know you participated! I'm trying to figure out how to get a link-up on here. Until then, I will have the links to other blogs that participate in Faithful Fridays here on my posts.

My mama participates on her blog, Country Girl at Home...

Ms. Patty participates on her blog, Blessings Beyond...

Ms. Retha participates on her blog, Retha's Rambles...

and Rachel participates on her blog, Stand Out Don't Fit In.


Here I am again, guys, asking for prayers.  Grandma O, my great-grandmother, passed away back in March.  Remember that?  Well, just Wednesday we found out that her son, Junior, and daughter-in-law, Betty, (thus my great uncle and great aunt) were killed in a car accident in Kentucky on their way home to Indiana.  We were shocked.  In fact, my great aunt Brenda (one of the 9 kids Grandma O had) had to be taken to the ER...she had been having some problems with her health recently and I think when she got the news she had a sort of panic attack.  She's okay now, thank the Lord.  The O family is a big family.  One O child died at birth, but that still left 8, and they all had several kids, so that made about 20+ grandchildren.  There are probably over a hundred great-grandchildren (my generation), not to mention a few great-great-grandchildren.  We're a big, close family, and we're all going to take it hard.  We're still kind of in disbelief.  It was so sudden.  It forces you to stop and think about how life can end, literally, in the blink of an eye.

Have a great day, friends!
God bless you!
Joy :)

We do have the assurance that we will see Uncle Junior and Aunt Betty again. But it is going to be hard. Seeing them on Monday and knowing they left this earth on Wednesday is just unreal. I know God's peace will be sufficient to get us all through.

Thanks for starting and always doing Faithful Fridays! I love you! 10!
