Please pray with me that God will make a way for us the buy groceries and to give our boys a good Christmas and Birthday. We used to have food stamps but that ended a few months ago and we're trying hard to make it in our own but I can't remember the last time I went and bought what I wanted from the grocery store. My kids never go hungry and I always find a way to make us a good dinner but beans, chili, taco soup is getting old. I know I'm complaining but I just need support. My husband is the only one working now and makes enough to pay our bills and we have about $150 left to provide for 6 people for 2 weeks and that's before groceries! I'm ashamed and embarrassed and never thought life would be like this. I get discouraged but I know God will always make a way.
Please pray for my family. We have been facing quite a bit of disappointment lately. I am trying to keep spirits up around my house, but some of my family members are starting to feel forgotten by God. Please ask God to give me the words to help my family see that God is holding us. Thank you.
Its that time of year again. Our Jennifer Campbell Angel Tree at Harp Elementary in Springdale is up. We have 140 angels in need this year. With the holiday season being so short and school getting out a week before Christmas, I had to turn people away this year. Time is so short. Off that tree we have 31 families in need of food, either now, both, or just at Christmas. Please pray that these needs are met. If you would like to help, please call the school at 479-750-8740.
You all have been praying for Darcie because she was diagnosed with Graves Disease with abnormal cells in her thyroid. She had her thyroid removed and the pathology report is not back yet because the preliminary report shows some form of cancer, and it is something that they have never seen before so the sample has been sent to Mayo Clinic for evaluation. Please keep praying that removing the thyroid removed the cancer and that all will be well. As always, Darcie and I appreciate you.
Many people know what it's like to lose a loved one, but few expect for it to happen so early in life. This last year, my best friend, who attended Liberty University, was shot and killed. I was shocked and I just stood there and wept. While we hadn't seen each other in awhile, we were like brothers and had always been there for each other through the highs and lows of life. First of all I would like to thank all the JBU students and faculty who surrounded me with prayers, hugs and words of encouragement. As I reflect over this last year, I want to provide hope to those who are grieving and tell them that it gets better and that I'm praying for you. This quote stood out to me and I hope that those who are going through grief right now will find hope from it, "Grief never ends... But it changes. It's a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith... It is the price of love." I also ask that you would pray for strength for my friends family and myself this week as they look back on his memory.
