Prayers for Heather

One day, while I was randomnly clicking on other "mother of twins" sites, I ran across Heather's site, It's Twinsanity!

Heather is the mother of not one, but two sets of IDENTICAL twins. Somewhere on her site she tells the odds of that occurring.

She also has two other children-six total.

Heather is also an army wife. Her husband was recently deployed into Iraq and will be there for the next year. (Her youngest boys are just 16 months old!)

She is having a tough time. She is in a new house and has some support, but really needs more. Turns out her husband's job is not what they initially thought it would be, and she is consumed with worry. Their communication is sparse.

The kids have been sick since Christmas and Heather is not getting any sleep.

I don't even know her, yet my heart aches for her today. The only thing I can think of to do is to request prayers on her behalf. Would you take a moment and offer up a prayer for Heather and her family? Please pray:

- That her kids would get and stay well!
- For the safety of her husband, Jason.
- That she would find a supportive church ASAP.
- For peace of mind in this tremendously difficult time.

If you do this, I promise that for the next year I WILL NOT WHINE about my own husband's traveling schedule. Unless it's a Monday.

"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV)

I read Heathers Blog and I worry about her too. This is a great thing to ask and all my prayers and healthy happy thoughts will be directed to Heather and her family to get through this stressful and exhausting time.
