Hello All,

If you all wouldn't mind saying some prayers for me as my wife told me that she offered to watch her step-sisters son instead of having him continue to go to daycare. It's her step-sister by way of a common law marriage. Her son has Systic Fibrosis and isn't doing well at daycare (e.g. not gaining the weight her needs to). Her doctors told her that if he loses another 4 lbs that they'll put him on a feeding tube. The father isn't around and therefore she's the only one bringing in any type of income. She said no to my wife for a number of reasons, and I told my wife that I wished she had discussed this with me first. So I need prayers to have the Lord help all of us in this situation. Mostly for Erin and Jack as I can't even begin to imagine the stress she's under. I also need prayers that the Lord will soften my heart about this. My first thoughts were certainly not what I would've expected to them to be. I should be clamoring at the chance to help her and her little boy. I'm not angry by any means, just taken off gaurd I suppose.
Thank you my brothers and sisters in Christ.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and always and unto ages of ages. Amen.

Lord of the Powers be with us, for in times of distress we have no other help but You.
Lord of the Powers, have mercy on Aaron and his family.
