A Special Lady

There are times in each of our lives that rain falls, hard times come and it helps to reach out to our friends and to our God for a little support. This is the place to express those needs, concerns and situations so others in the AAPK family can keep you in their prayers.

A Special Lady

Post by dlr110 » Tue Jan 14, 2020 1:09 pm

One of the reasons we moved up here to Ponder Country was to take care of my Mother in Law. Not many guys get to say it, but she has been a very special lady to me for the almost 50 years I've known her. She has been a strong lady through many trials, losing two husbands and a son, but never publicly putting her pain on display.

Now she has been fighting lung cancer in her right lung for 3 years now. She seldom slows down and publicly you would never know anything was wrong with her. She still attends church, gets her hair done every Thursday from her granddaughter and helps when she can at our small public library. She is up every morning at 5:30 and in bed by 10:00. She has never asked for pity, special favors or to be treated any different than she has ever been.

Her last MRI shows that cancer may have spread to other areas, so today she is having a biopsy to confirm it. She had her 87th birthday this past October and wants to make it to at least 90. All of her older brothers and sisters have made it well into their 90's and I believe 1 will have his 100th birthday this year.

Everyone's spirits are a little low right now, so I'm coming to a special group of prayer warriors and asking for your prayers again. My wonderful Mother in Law's name is Vera.

Vera sounds like a wonderful person to know and be around. I felt the same way about MiL, and miss her quite a bit.

I will certainly say a prayer for her and the rest of the family so that you guys will hopefully be able to enjoy her company for years to come.

I am sorry to hear that David.
I will add Vera to my prayer list and pray for her.
Good bless you all and don't be down, Vera obviously knows Psalms 3:3, "He is my glory, and the lifter of my head."
Such a godly woman blesses many generations!

Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit, I pray You will bless Vera with the power of Your healing and her family and friends with the comfort of Your peace. She has asked that she would live until 90. Jesus, You said You came to give life and to give it more abundantly. I pray You will grant Vera with that promise of abundant life and allow her to live for many years beyond 90. All these things, Lord, for Your glory. In Jesus's name. Amen.
Take care and God bless,
