Praying for my friend!

When I began blogging several years ago...I faithfully participated in Joanne, The Simple Wife's, meme Memory Monday.  As anyone who's made blogging friends will tell does not feel like you have never actually met the person in real life.  I have exchanged LONG e-mails with her.  I was even privileged to read and promote one of her books, Misplacing God

So, it shocked me to my toes to hear she had suffered a massive stroke on Tuesday.  Being a writer and involved in many large ministries over the doesn't really surprise me to see the outpouring of prayers on her blog and twitter...but it intimidated me from saying anything here...cuz who wants to appear to be jumping on a bandwagon.  But, then I thought...that's stupid...she IS my friend...and she needs, here I am sharing my heavy heart's request with ya'll.

Please pray that she'll open her eyes today.  That she will awake!  Please pray for her very tired husband and her two sweet girls!

I don't remember ever seeing her blog, but it was so weird to scroll through normal everyday posts and then see news of a stroke. We truly never know what a day may bring forth. Thanks for letting us know -- I will pray for her.

So sad. I hope she makes it through this hard time.
