CALLING ON ALL PRAYER WARRIORS.....

 I need prayers on something that may sound trivial, But is BIG!!!....My brother was released from the hospital and is planning his son's funeral....He has requested that i sing the song i sang solo in church as a youth....He wants me to sing it with daddy....
The problem is I have been sick with a bad cold this week and little voice....Along with I only have one vocal cord that works since I had the cancer...The other vocal cord is paralyzed...PLEASE pray for my voice to clear and that the one vocal cord works long enough so i can do this for him...I HAVE to be able to do this!!!

He told me once that he sang this song to Little Rob at bedtime when he was growing up...I have to be able to do this for my brother!!..If I never sing again just let me LORD be able to sing this once...
p.s...I'm sorry that my blog isn't fun right now with primitive decorating and such, but my family's world is turned upside down right now...............................................

My prayers are with you Jen- I know you will do it just fine!

quiltsbycheri said...

even with no sound coming from your vocal chord your song will be heard through every heart....just know that creative words may not be what words you utter for a while and it's okay....i cleaned everyday for months following the passing of my stepson, knew i needed to keep moving but couldn't focus on much else....my first quilt design that i finally did was signed with casey's initals and is today, four years later my top selling pattern...i feel the emotions felt and casey are touching people's hearts....as your nephew robert will

This is no trivial prayer request! I believe our prayers will be answered and you will be able to sing for this.
And I think your blog is just what it should be right now - a place for support and prayers. Thinking of you and your family and keeping you close in prayer.

Jennifer @ Stitchin' Thyme said...

I definately will continue to pray for strength for your family

Patti said...

I am lifting up prayers for your song ~ that the heartfelt words will be heard by all and that God will help you through this. I continue to pray for your family and the other family involved. Your prayer request is certainly not trivial, but heartfelt and a blog isn't just for sharing the fun, but an opportunity for support.
Blessings & hugs, Patti

The Lord will give you the strength to do this task, and don't feel the need to apologize for not posting about prims! This is your life, and we all understand, life is ever changing.
God bless!

Lorna/Live Oak Primitive Peddler said...

Jenn, that is not a trivial request, God knows just how much this will mean to your brother and He will answer our prayers for you. I am so glad to hear your brother is out of the hospital and I will continue to pray for everyone.
No need to apologize, I am glad you shared and gave us the opportunity to do what we can...which is pray.
Blessings,
Lorna

The song will come from your heart and Little Rob will rejoice in heaven that his aunt sang his song. Wish we all could wrap our arms around you and your family to ease your burden.

Karen/My Colonial Home said...

Dear Jen,
There is no need to apologize to ANY OF US for your needs right now - that is one of the wonderful things about the friends we have through blogs and forums...we are sisters of the heart and when one hurts we all hurt for them.

I pray for you Jen and for your brother and his family.

May the Lord bless you with a strong voice for your sweet Nephew's funeral and thereafter.

I love you Jen!!!
Karen

Prayers are being sent up for you from here in NJ! I know the Lord will be with you as you sing this special tribute to your beautiful nephew.

bayrayschild said...

Jenn, I'll be praying for you as I know this means so much to you.
I bet your little angel wouldn't care if your voice was perfect or not. The sound of his aunts voice in any form would probably be a comfort to him.

God love and bless you all,
Audrey

I believe that God will be with you to help you sing this important song and I pray that Angels surround your family and hold you close and give you the strength that You all need to get through this unbearable time.
Sing like an Angel Jen.

Kattywhompus Primitives said...

I continue to pray for your family as well as others involved. Your request brought to mind a favorite lyric of mine...

"You be the psalm writer
And I will be Your psalm
You be the songwriter
And I will sing Your song"

Sing for your brother, your nephew and your Lord. Your song will be perfect.

Hugs,
Rhonda

peggy said...

Jenn, I know God will give you the strength to do this for your brother and nephew. Your spirit shows through so in this blog. I am so glad I found it, I don't just come for the beautiful pictures and crafts you do, but I feel like I have a friend in Georgia. I know you would be there idf anyone asked a prayer request for their loved ones. Thank you for being able to lean on people in your time of need. I wish I had had known about sites like this when I needed one. Know that you and your entire will remain on my prayer list for a long while. Blessings

Praying for you! You don't need to apologize for what you post or don't post on your blog! Your family is more important than that. :)

adsgram said...

YOU are not your blog, and as much as we all love to see and read about your home and prims...WE are not the ones you need to concern yourself with at this time. Please do not apologize to us! We are, however, concerned FOR you and your family. I lost a nephew (16yo) to a gunshot myself many years ago. I am amazed you are functioning at all!

Please just take care of you...I will add my prayers that you may sing your song and God Bless you all!

A Primitive Homestead said...

Many have come together to pray. Where two or more gather & agree. The Lord will hear & answer. We believe with you He will. Our Heavenly Father will not expect perfection from you nor will your brother. They know your heart & know you to are hurting. They can fill your love. Your song must be a comfort to your brother & just hearing you sing may be just what he needs at this time to get through this day. Praying for you & your family.
