Good News and Bad News

The good news:  My mom is back in town!

The bad news:  Her parents' poor health prompted her early return.  :(

I hate to divulge too much of my grandparents' health history, but I would like to ask for prayers for healing and peace for all involved.  My uncles (and my mom) have been doing a remarkable job of coordinating care and rotating visits between my Nana in the hospital, my Grandpa in hospice, and my Aunt, who has Down Syndrome and is unable to stay alone in my grandparent's house. 

Dear Jesus, 
Divine Physician and Healer of the Sick, 
we turn to You in this time of illness.
O dearest Comforter of the Troubled, 
alleviate our worry and sorrow with Your gentle love,
and grant us the grace and strength to accept this burden.
Dear God, we place our worries in Your hands. 
We ask that You restore Your servant to health again.
Above all, grant us the grace to acknowledge Your holy will 
and know that whatsoever You do,
You do for the love of us.


My grandparents around the time of my sixth birthday.  I love the joy that lights their faces.
