The Sick One, Worry, And The Verse Of The Week

We've had a full week here at the Wonderful household and this verse has been on my mind, in my heart and my prayers:
Philippians 4:6 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."
The Lord has been so good to me and calmed anxiety I've been feeling in one area this week; however, we still have a lot of things in the air and are waiting, waiting, waiting for His timing.
And my Maeve is sick.
Here's the sweet sick one.
Seeing her suffer has weighed very heavily on my heart these last few days.
And although I think she's improving she is still not feeling like her perky self.

(Staying hydrated)

I've also had some dear friends and dear family on my mind who having wrestled with many past obstacles and are just this week enjoying the most amazing blessings--Praise the Lord!! And those who are struggling publicly (B and J) and those are are struggling privately (the Lord knows!) and I'm so thankful that God is bigger than me and strong enough to carry everyone's burden. I think the doxology is in order, because really, after you've made your requests known there isn't anything for us but to praise Him!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

Praise Him all creatures here below!
Praise Him above ye Heavenly Hosts!

Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost!

Your girls are beautiful! By the way, is this Michelle A. from FHS? If it is, I was a couple years behind you, in your brothers grade. If not, sorry! Either way, your girls are still beautiful!
