Day 11

My nephew Ben is recovering slowly from the skiing accident which happened eleven days ago. He went through a really bad patch over the weekend when his lungs were infected due to a nick that happened during a procedure to place a feeding tube when he first got to the hospital. Now he is awake, breathing on his own and talking to his parents.
There is a Facebook group Praying for Ben Smith that has 613 members already of friends of Ben's and friends of ours and friends of friends all pledged to help by praying for him. This just shows the power of prayer to uphold Ben and his family in their time of need. Ben has a long road of recovery ahead of him, but with that much prayer support backing him up, he has what he needs to get stronger every day.
Thanks to all of my friends who have pledged their prayer support for my sister Jeanne and her family as they live through this precarious time.

Lord have Mercy, Lord have Mercy, Lord have Mercy.

And, I agree with you on Facebook, I also do not abstain during Lent.
