Please pray for my friend, J. Her husband was one of the Oklahomans killed in the helicopter traveling to Iraq last night. (I am not giving her name here as I have no way of knowing who sees this and I wouldn't want family to find out here...does that make sense? I can't imagine that happening, but just in case.) They are sweet members of my church and just about a week ago, she insisted on bringing lunch out to the kids and I and ministered to me greatly in our time of loss. I am just heartsick for her. I thought that maybe losing a spouse would be easier than losing a child. There is a sort of responsibility you feel for your children, but that was in the midst of grief...at least I had Patrick to turn to. He has been my rock. J has 3 little boys, 9, 6ish, and 22 months. Please bathe them in prayer!
