Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

A Visit at the Hospital

I wrote about Catherine and her girls here.  Today, was Francesca's surgery. It was a big one. So the girls and I , and our friend's daughter Marion packed up and went to sit with Catherine while Francesca has surgery. I remember when Tim had surgery. I sat alone for 9 plus hours during the surgery. I hate to think of somebody sitting alone. :(
THIS TIME..... I remembered the camera. :)
 Anna and her friend Marion studied fossils.
 Sarah and Alli had fun on the paint spots.
 Erika enjoyed crocheting.
 They all wound up resting on this couch.
And this is Catherine and me, resting on a giant caterpillar.
I really enjoyed meeting Catherine and talking about her wonderful family. :)  Pray for Francesca as she will be in ICU for now, and for Victoria's surgery tomorrow.

I'm so grateful you were there for her! I don't know either of you IRL, but I can just tell you are both the sweetest women. :)

Wow, I would recognize that hospital anywhere. I am so glad you went to sit ith them. I sat out that window past the big caterpillar and ate lunch a couple times. It's a nice area. I am so, so, so glad you went to sit with them.

Wow, you never cease to amaze me! What an angel you have been to Catherine. My prayers are with her and her girls!

I'm no angel. You know me too well! LOL But I remember sitting alone for surgeries, and have sat alone when the girls have had surgery and it is just no fun. Add to that being in another state where there is NOBODY you know, and that would be so hard.
I just wanted to be a blessing to Catherine... She was a HUGE blessing to me. :) She is really a fun person and I wish we lived closer!

You Are Still Holy
