MIL and Family Could Use Prayers

Oh' my.  Not good news today.  Neil just called me from the Life Center where they transported Nadine late Monday afternoon.  His mother has pneumonia in her lower right lobe.  This can't be good.  I'm am praying for the Lords will, her comfort and Neils acceptance.  I'm at a loss for words.  I'm hurting at thinking the worst but also I hate seeing her life just deteriorate.  I'm so confused and fearful.  Please friends remember Neil and his mother in your prayers again.  I'll hope you'll also pray that I find the right words and do all that I can to lift her up to the Lord.  I'm almost scared to pray.  What if I'm giving up on her to soon.  What if I'm wrong in thinking her life is not that wonderful and that she's tired and that maybe it's time for her to rest.  Just everything I say in my head feels horrible.  Yet as much as I hated losing my parents at such a young age I never had to watch any suffering or any of this horrid Alzheimer disease. 

I don't even know how to close this post.  I'm sorry I keep posting prayer request and it seems that's all you hear.  I just don't have words to close.


  1. Not to worry, sweetpea. It IS in the Lord's hands and He'll do what is necessary. You are such a sweetheart to do all you do considering how hard it has been on you. You are truly a saint. I admire you beyond measure!

  2. Tracy dear, we went through this same thing with my hubb's dad. It's so hard to watch our loved ones hurting. I'll be praying for all of you.

  3. Praying for You Tracy ~ For Neil & Your MIL.... God Knows your Heart & he will help you with the words when they are needed.....
    I do Believe that sometimes when the end is near, Our Loved one almost need Our permission to Let Go & Let God ~ Sometimes they think they need to continue to be here even suffering, for Us~ I took care of My Dad at My Home & held his hand when I knew God was Calling Him, I just quietly told him I Loved him & to Go with the Angels ~ it was Really as Peaceful as that.... He had suffered for Months & I knew he was hanging on for Us.... God will do what is needed, Just continue to Prayer for Her Comfort ~ for Neils Comfort & Faith.... You are always in My Prayers

  4. I have prayed for your MIL and yourself, Tracy...trust God. His ways are always the best ways, and even though we stand before Him in times like this with no words to say, He can hear your heart. Trust that.
