Yet another reason to pray.
I just got off the phone with my mother, who had a grand ol' time giggling at me hollerin' at my "sick" kids who don't seem so sick right now. In the course of the conversation, she shared a story of a family in her Sunday school class (yes, another one). They just had their third child recently and he was born with Down Syndrome. As if that isn't enough to deal with, he came out oxygen deprived and very very very blue. After more than a week, he is beginning to look less like a smurf and more like a human. The baby's mom is in Dallas at the hospital with little Jacob, Dad (out of sick days, etc as a teacher) is at home with their other children and struggles with not being there with his sick baby. On top of being seperated and stressed, Dad has bronchitis. They need all the prayers they can get. Please pray for this family. They have a long, long road ahead of them. Follow their story, the link is on the right. This is truly Jacob's battle, but it will be God's victory.
