Prayer Request

I would like to apologize for the lack of posts this week, but my family is in the midst of a major clean-up effort. We had a fire at our home on Tuesday morning. The major damage was to the laundry room - apparently our deep freezer shorted out. We lost everything in that room, but thankful there is no structural damage. We have smoke and water damage in the kitchen and living room, but this can all be cleaned up.

One of the hardest things has been losing our 3 cats - Frankie, Bella and Elinore. For those of you with pets, you can imagine how hard this has been, especially on our daughter. Thankfully, our dog, Rusty, appears to be uneffected, even though he was in the house with the cats.

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers over the next few days. God spared our home because we very well could have lost everything we own. Thankfully, we weren't home, so God also spared our lives - He is truly great.

May everything come together in such a blossoming way, for you and your family...all as to be seen through the molding of His Hands.

Bless you, sister.

You're in my prayers -- I understand how it is to lose a pet -- I can't imagine losing more than one at the same time. I'm glad all of your family is safe and that there wasn't as much damage as there could have been.

Bobbi...I am so sorry to hear about this. You and your family are in our prayers and I can't imagine how hard it is to not only go through the trauma of a fire but also losing pets as well. Like you said, luckily none of your family was harmed but losing the pets would still be so tough to deal with. Good luck with getting back on your feet and we will be thinging of you and your family.
