Heart thread - 04/25/2009 - updated

Clara and Olivia were flown to Fresno even earlier: on Thursday. This is wonderful news for their parents and the family. May God richly bless the wonderful staff at Lucille Packard at Stanford.

I had some computer issues but we are in business now. Katie said she had the best shower she has had since the twins were born. It is so nice for Katie and Jeremy to be home and their daughters just a small car ride away. Jeremy made sure that Katie came home to a clean house
and Oscar was very happy to see her. You have our continued gratitude for all your prayers.
God continues to bless our family.
Quote of the Day:
Reunited and it feels so good.
Peaches and Herb

I talked to my friend Kathy today. She is home and mending nicely, though it is going to take a while and she is not the type to take it as slowly as she ought. So continued prayers for healing and for her to behave and not do too much too early.

Mad Priest just suffered a crushing blow and we are surrounding him and Mrs MP with love and prayers.

We continue to hold Lisa, and Barbara, and Roseann, and Kirstin, and JohnieB, and Bosco's family, and many others in our prayers.

O heavenly Father, who hast filled the world with beauty: Open our eyes to behold thy gracious hand in all thy works; that, rejoicing in thy whole creation, we may learn to serve thee with gladness; for the sake of him through whom all things were made, thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Jane R and ToujoursDan informed us that Saturday was World Malaria Day.
Did you know that malaria is the single biggest killer of children under the age of five on the African continent?

Dan also gives a link where we can donate $10 to buy a net to protect a child from this disease. I just used part of my tax refund to buy some. [Jane suggests this might be in Canadian dollars.] Prayer and action together!
O God, we remember before you those who live with disease as a constant companion, those who minister to them, and those who labor for prevention and cures. Sustain them all in your mercy and empower us to do what we can on their behalf. Amen.

Yes, the nets we buy as part of our MDGs are 12.00 and are treated with insecticide. ERD is a good place to send the money. And you can designate it for the nets.

Thanks for adding that information, Susan S.
