Balancing the Scales

Things have been going really well lately - considering what this week is I am thankful for all the good coming my and John's way. The only problem is there is so much going on in the lives of a few others that needs some prayer. When all of the "bad" was happening to us I felt like I was the only person in the world going through so many trials and tests and "upsetness". We are still not in the clear, but I am so very thankful that things are finally starting to look up for John and I! I could handle when the bad was happening to me, but I do not like what is happening to those around me. Here are just a few people, if you would, to add to your prayer list. These are just three that I found out today.

My Grandmother - she is taking a turn for the worst. She has Alzheimer's and the past week or so it has been very difficult on my parents. Just to mention a few things - putting her pants on as a shirt, denture cream in her is extremely sad to see a woman who was so independent to now fully rely upon others. Please pray for her as well as my parents who are her primary caregivers.

The next I cannot say the names, but a married couple that has been married for over 30 years. They are having stresses financially, with family, and a ton of other things. Please pray for them and their marriage as they struggle.

Lastly, one of my very best friends' significant other has found out she has cancer. We do not know the extent or too many details yet, but I will keep y'all updated after the MRI later this week. It is Ewing's sarcoma - which, I believe, is cancer of the bone and tissue. The cancer was found in her shoulder.
