A Kind Word is a Blessing Indeed

It’s been one of those weeks that could’ve made my hair stand straight on end.

You may have seen on the DTA Facebook page that I had not one, but two prayer requests.

The first was for my mother in law, Grammy Jane. While on a cruise with Pop Gunn she developed a serious condition which resulted in her being transfered by ambulance to a hospital ICU in Cartagena, Columbia. 

They had no access to email and their phones did not work out of country. It was a stressful situation to say the least.

Not a day later I received word that my lovely Auntie Beth was also in the hospital and it was very serious. I had been planning an upcoming visit to celebrate her 90th birthday but now everything has been placed on hold.

I cannot even begin to express how wrapped in love I felt when the good thoughts and prayers began rolling in. Your encouraging words were truly a balm to my soul.

I am happy to report that my mother in law is on the mend and should be able to return home to Florida later this week. #prayerworks

We are still praying for my Auntie Beth.

My friends I shall never forget your kind words, they were and are SO appreciated.

1-kind word

May your day be filled kind words. They mean so much.

Our hearts hurt when those we love hurt. May God's goodness and kindness surround you all and be evident in the words and actions of others.

It really does help in so many ways when we know we are loved and prayed for. Keep us posted. :)

I'm sorry I wasn't aware of your family's situations as they happened, Laura, but you sure have them lifted in my thoughts and prayers now. How scary it would be to be in a foreign country and need medical attention!

What a wonderful answer to prayer that your mother-in-law is on the mend. I will continue to pray for you aunt. God Bless.

I just posted about my hubby's paternal grandmother who has battled PSP for a few years. She has been getting worse, and was in hospital for the last two weeks. her goal is to be at her granddaughters wedding this year, so we've been praying hard.

I'll add Grammy Jane and Auntie Beth to my prayers too.

Send Auntie and your MIL a pretty Valentine! I know seeing them via computer screen makes me feel better!
