Please pray for 2 families who have suffered losses this week:
The first is one of my DH's co-worker's brother who was shot Saturday evening, they believe it was drug-related. Dad had just been granted full custody of his children b/c mom is involved in drugs, so now the sister (DH's co-worker) is going after full custody. They are in need of clothing and basics for the children, came with nothing but the clothes on their backs, ages around 3 and 4.
The 2nd is a set of little sisters ages 2 and 4. A co-worker of mine (a nurse) came upon a wreck this morning and the sheriff believes it happened sometime around midnight. They believe 20-something mom had been drinking and she was thrown from the vehicle and killed. The 2 babies, who knows how long they sat in the dark and cold before they were discovered. My co-worker sat with the little girls till they were taken to the hospital and then after coming to work decided to go be with them. Good thing b/c it was hours before family came and she was the only familiar face to these little ones.
Please pray for the very best outcome for all of these little babes. It seems tragic, but maybe God's way of rearranging their little lives to ensure the very best care and upbringing and maybe even drawing these families closer together this Christmas. Please also pray for my dear co-worker for peace and comfort for her, she is just totally shaken up over these little ones and she has been a little down-trodden lately anyway. Just praying God will lift her spirits.
