Life is so Fragile

I don't know about you, but lately I see so much pain and suffering around me. It seems like the devil is working overtime, and it's really bringing me down. It just seems like so many are dealing with such difficult trials, illnesses, death, and sadness. I don't like seeing so many hurting, and I wish that I could take away their pain.

One thing that I CAN do is pray. And, I've been doing lots of this lately.

And, yesterday Gavin decided to join me in prayer!

My little man is such a light to me in this world! I don't know what I'd do without his sweet smile and the innocence that he brings to my life each day!

Know that I pray for so many of you daily, and I hope that you are all given a light that gets you through your days as well!

Life is fragile.....remember to handle it with Prayer!

"Let my prayer come before You; incline Your ear to my cry." Psalm 88:2

I've been feeling the same way lately. We keep hearing about families with children who are sick and suffering. And I guess the only thing we can do (which really is a big thing) is pray!

Thanks for sharing the cute pics of Gavin--seeing his cuteness always helps!

It seems like it was a tough year. I share in your prayers for others too. Very sweet & thoughtful post:)

Love seeing Gavin's sweet, smiley face! A light, he is!!

I hate it! I just saw through my RR group that a young DS boy just passed away. He was totally healthy, then all of the sudden got a disease, and 3 months later was gone! So scary!
Any word on your Make a wish? I need to call my guy today, he was supposed to call me, and he hasn't yet. We were thinking of going that last week in April, when its spring break and my boys have 3 days off school. Let me know when good times are for you. We need to meet!!

Remember that the devil is on a leash, and limited in his powers. In the end, the Lamb wins! That image keeps me goin'....

I've read the back of the book and I know that we win!....(What a blessing!).....but it's still difficult to see so many people struggling!

So true! I have a little glass cross handing on my fridge that Luke's dad got Marie for her baptism. Life is fragile, handle with prayer.

So true! And a wonderful reminder :)

So true - life is fragile and sometimes we take it for granted. Thank you for the reminder and for sharing pics of sweet Gavin.

I keep you in my prayers too. I take comfort in knowing that we get prayed for too.

Thanks so much for updating all of the time. I really miss hearing from the families that I follow, and pray anyway.

God bless you and your family!

So sweet your little man and his hands together in prayer,precious.Zoey's most favorite place to be ... church.If we drive by church and don't pull in .... oh boy,one mad girl!

Life is so fragile indeed.Our reminders often come on the heels of others tragedies.The key is to remembering the fragility daily and living our lives as such.

Your love and support and prayers are such a blessing to us here in California.Thank you for them.
