Prayers and a Circle Journal

Prayers are needed by some of my dear blogging friends. First of all, Carolyn at Talk to Grams needs prayers for Nancy. She had a dentist appointment today and the news wasn't good. Please keep Nancy in your prayers and Carolyn as well. Please drop by and give Carolyn a word of cheer.

Sharon at Sit With Me Awhile is in need of prayer for her and her family. A beloved family member just went home to be with his Lord and he will be sorely missed. Now she and her family are going to have to move. Please visit Sharon for a word of condolence.

Deena at Can I Be Pretty in Pink also needs prayer. Deena is fighting a battle with breast cancer and though she is doing well, she needs words of prayer and words of encouragement.

I'm sure there are many others who need prayers as well. If anyone would like to be put on my prayer list, please leave a comment or go to my blog profile and email me.

Have you ever heard of a Circle Journal? My dear friend Mama Bear over at Bears in Exile is wanting to start one and it sounds like it would be a lot of fun.

A Circle Journal is when a group of Internet friends commit to journal for two weeks, adding stickers, photos and a little about their daily lives. When they have completed their journaling, they send it on to the next person on the list. When everyone has had a turn, the journal makes its rounds again so everyone can get to read what their friends wrote in the journal. I do hope that some of you will follow the link to Bears in Exile and sign up. It would be wonderful to get to know each other a little better.

Please take part in a random act of kindness today. A kind word or a smile can make a big difference in the life of a senior or someone who is hurting. Not only will it make a difference in their life, but it will make a difference in yours as well. There's nothing better than the thrill of knowing you have made someone's day a little brighter. ~Blessings, Mary~

  4. Mary,

    Prayers for all the people on your list. I have been gone a lot helping my dear friend, Eileen, who fell and besides being sore and bruised has a fractured wrist and arm. Tomorrow she will see the orthopedic surgeon, as she needs pins in her wrist.

    Goodness, you sure have a lot of snow! Late yesterday afternoon, when I got home, I planted 2 rows of leaf lettuce! The weather has turned gorgeous around here and I love to play in the dirt.

    Be careful out there and have a blessed day, Mary.



  5. Good Morning Mary,
    I will be keeping Grams, Deena, and the others in my prayers. I haven't been by yet to visit Grams, but I will make my way there shortly. I am late in posting and visiting this morning. I did do the Meme that you tagged me for. So when you have some time, be sure to drop by and read it. That Journal sounds like fun, but I don't know if I'm going to do it just yet. I am still thinking on it tho. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love & Hugs,
    Karen H.

  6. Mary,

    I will keep everyone in my thoughts and prayers. I hope Michelle is continuing to do well and I hope you are all better!


  7. Hi Mary,

    I love the looks of your post today. Such pretty graphics.

    I know Deena needs extra prayer right now as I think she is coming down with the flu. Her husband has it, and she told me she thinks she's getting it too. She hasn't posted since Monday, so I think she's even sicker.

  8. Hi Mary, I will keep all these people in my prayers. Will check out the journal thing. Love and Hugs, Pat

  9. Mary, Thanks so much for your concern for Nancy and posting about our need for prayer! Thanks for your E-mail and your words of encougement last night! You are a blessing to all of us out here in blog land!!! I will lift up the others in prayer, too. Love and Hugs Grams

  10. Mary, I will add everyone to my morning prayers.

    The Circle Journal sounds like fun. I am a bit computer illiterate and so will have to forgo the fun this time around.

    God Bless.

  11. 'afternoon Mary!!! I felt so saddened to read Carolyn's post...I do hope our prayers are heard. For the others...they will be included.

    I hear through the grapevine [my blog comments actually] that you're busy. Well....just keep on 'trucking'!!! Life gets in the way sometimes. And I know that you know that I know you don't have to feel obligated to drop by if you can't find time ---I totally understand. My thoughts and condolences are being sent via this comment to let you know I send you a gentle comforting hug!!

    Have a peaceful evening.

  12. Yes I will be praying for all of them, Thank you for your caring heart.
    love you,
