Please be praying for my sister

****UPDATE**** I talked to my Mother this afternoon, and Hollye has been admitted to the state hospital in Big Spring, she will be there for at least a week for an evaluation, and then go from there. My brother-in-law is staying in Big Spring also. No job, no money, living on credit cards. My mother has their two cats for the time being. Mother spoke to Hollye earlier today, and Holly insisted that mother come to my house because Rusty had fallen and I needed her help. I have not talked to Hollye in about a week or so. Mother is very stressed and is not good for her 78 year old body.

Ok, before I start on the prayer request for my sister, I need to give you a little background. Thursday afternoon, I started having some pain in my left shoulder. I went to the Dr. on Friday, and ended up in the ER. There was a small glich in my EKG. Ended up not only in the ER, but admitted to the hospital and having the thing done where they go in through the groin and look at your heart. Heart is wonderful fine, the the glich in my EKG is normal for me. So I am trying to get ahold of my Mother so that she will not have a cow. This is where my sister comes in. Hollye and her husband live in Kerrville about 2 hours from here. Currently they are both unemployed and struggling to make ends meet. My mom went down for a visit, and while she was there, Hollye had a complete meltdown. Would not come out of the bathroom, afraid meltdown. I just spoke to my Mother, and she said that Hollye is in the ER, in and out since Saturday, and that the meds they have tried make it worse instead of betther. They have found one med that is working with no side effects so far. Please be praying for my Mom, Hollye, and her husband John. They know God but have given up on him. Hollye also has a drinking problem, and if she is drinking and taking any kinds of meds..well you know what can happen.

Oh I am home and fine and getting back on track. Note to self for future reference. Do not let husband pack for hospital for you, or let children assist. Ended up with four pairs of panties, Bible, but no bible study, and no shampoo. Got to love'm for trying.

I am glad you are ok! I am praying for sister and your Mom! (I love the part about Rusty packing your bag for the hospital!)

awwwww, Yes I am praying for you and your family.. Sounds like you have been going through some tough times, I think sometimes when we have to go through these tests, that we go through makes us stronger & stronger, but they sure are not much fun.
God Bless you and your family, and know I am praying for you all.

Oh my Sallye I am happy to hear you are fine.

Lord I lift Sallye Sister Hollye up to you, her husand and mother. Lord bring them peace. Help them to see that we all go through dark valleys that are to bring us closer to you. Lord I ask you to bind Satan in this situation. I ask that you stop him from whispering in Hollye ear that there is no hope. I pray you use Sallye to show her through scripture that you are the only hope that lies within!

In Jesus name

Love you Siesta- See you at the Fie

Dear Salley,

You, your husband, your sister and her husband, your mother and your children are all in my prayers. You have had a difficult time lately and I'm sure there are times where you are discouraged. Please know that we are here for you. When you are sad or downtrodden, I hope the following verses lift your spirits:

Psalm 43: 3-5 - 3.Send forth your light and your truth, let them guide me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell.
4.Then will I go to the altar of God, to God, my joy and my delight. I will praise you with the harp, O God, my God.
5.Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
