I would appreciate your prayers for my younger sister. She is in the hospital fighting for the life of her 22-week old unborn baby - Sadie Grace. She is loosing amniotic fluid and at risk for infection. It is possible that the baby could be born any day, but the baby is not completely developed and will probably not make it if she is born this early.
Please pray that:
- this baby will make it to full term without further complications.
- God will give my sister and her husband His peace.
- God will comfort my two young nephews. They lost their father to suicide last October and are afraid that their unborn baby sister will die.

My sister has been released from the hospital and has been commanded to lay flat in bed for the next 4 months. While she was in the hospital, the Dr. told her that she had an option to abort the baby, because if it came that early there were be physical problems with the little one. That gave my sister the opportunity to state her pro-life view and her trust in God.It's so heartbreaking that women are given this option and out of fear chose abortion because the Dr. suggested it.
This week’s Bonus Question: What is the very first scripture you ever memorized? Or the one you first - remember - memorizing? And when was it?
Psalm 118:24 This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. (As a young girl, I sang this verse as a song. It was one of my favorites.)
