Praying for Tricia and Nate today and in the days to come....

Please pray!

One of our links on the left side bar is the blog written by Nate Lawrenson, "Confessions of a CF patient". He and his family need your prayers, and have for some time, but especially since an emergent situation unfolded last night and continues today...and in the days to come.

This family has been on our mind and in our hearts for the past three months. Not only has Nate's blog informed and continued to educate those inflicted with the disease of "Cystic Fibrosis", as a young man, he has poured out his heart to the world and captured so very many who are inspired by their story and honored to pray for them.

After one false alarm, Tricia got the call again. This was it! She was going to have her double lung transplant, the very thing that would save her life. She hasn't breathed on her own for three months now, after complications not only from the disease itself, but also since her pregnancy required an emergency delivery of her very premature baby girl. She has been reliant on a vent inserted into her lungs to keep them working.

Won't you please pray with us for Tricia and Nate, along with their families and the donor of the lungs? I'm off to keep the candle burning for them all, deeply affected by their tremendous love story and gift of hope offered to all those suffering from lung diseases, let alone their prolife stance with their sweet baby girl.

You can hop over the read what Elizabeth had to say today, and let us all resolve to remember both the recipient and the donor today.

Eternal rest, grant unto them, O Lord, and let the perpetual light shine upon them.
May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
