My Sister
« on: June 17, 2014, 09:05:33 PM »
Hey... so my sister is set to deliver (C-Section) her fourth child on Thursday. Nothing dangerous is foreseen, but then it is a surgical procedure so you never know, plus either way there will be recovery and adjustments afterwards, besides other normal stressful stuff. If you have a moment please say a prayer for her for the delivery and the period after the delivery, that it may be safe and joyful. Her name is Tricia, and the baby is to be named Lily.

Awwww....

May God grant Tricia a safe delivery of her little bundle of joy, Lily, and grant both of them and their loved ones much energy and health.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
