If you could just take 10 seconds today to lift up someone in my family, I'd appreciate it. I know my cousin would appreciate your prayers for her son, Nate, who is in his 20s and is in intensive care for a mysterious illness. Please pray that his seizures stop and that no permanent damage remains and of course that he will be completely healed. Theirs is a family of faith, and I cannot tell you how inspiring it is to see them hang tough and hang onto Christ through this ordeal. Still, she is a mom who sat by her son's side in the hospital on his birthday while he lay there unconscious. Although Nate's family is strong, they experience hopeful moments followed immediately by heart-breaking moments, and they're exhausted. Moms, you don't love your kids any less once they're in their 20's, I can assure you. Thanks for asking God to heal Nate and take care of his family.
