** Due to the increasing severity of MY ILLNESS, it has become impossible for me to continue to post on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as much as I desperately long to, I am also unable to visit each of your blogs often or reciprocate all the loving, supportive comments many of you continue to leave - even though at times it may appear as though you've arrived at some long ago, forsaken blog! With that said, I really want you to know that I miss every single one of you and that I really am still here! I'm just too sick and too weak most days to be able to sit up long enough to create a brand new post...or even read one. However, I absolutely do receive AND read every new encouraging word you leave (and, often, the old ones, again and again!) and I cherish them now more than ever! I truly appreciate your love, support, and, most importantly, your precious time spent on your knees in prayer for my family and me. It ALL means the world to me and I am truly blessed to have friends like you!
~Hugs and Sister Love, Teresa

FYI: All comments come to my email, which I can easily read on my phone. I also enjoy Facebook on my phone because I can catch up on A LOT in a very short time there. Soooo, if you're on Facebook, come 'friend' me there! {{HUGS}} **

I know I said I wasn't going to post again until after the first of the year but I have a very urgent prayer request I'd like to bring before all my prayer warriors.

My cousin, Tommy, who is in his early 50s, has been sick for about a week. At first, the doctor thought he might have had a sinus infection. However, he never responded to the antibiotics and only continued to worsen. On Christmas Eve, he was hospitalized after being diagnosed with the H1N1 (Swine) Flu. Since that time, his condition has continued to deteriorate and now he also has bilateral pneumonia. Today, he was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit and was placed on a ventilator to help with his breathing. He is in very critical condition.

Please pray for Tommy as he battles this very insidious illness. Please ask the Lord to give him all the strength and comfort he will need to make it through. I'd also like to ask that you pray for my Aunt Dorothy, Tommy's mom, who has lost her husband (cancer), her older son (automobile accident) and her daughter-in-law (cancer) - all within the last 2 years. Please ask the Lord to give her, and the rest of the family, all the strength, grace and comfort needed to make it through the coming days. AND, that special PEACE that passeth all understanding.

Thank you so much for your continued love and support.

Our father in heaven, we pray for Your will to be done. Not ours, but Yours.

We pray for the strength and faith in Tommy and his mother and the rest of the family members and that they continue to put their trust and faith in You. Amen.
