A Call To Prayer

I'm calling all of you prayer warriors out there to prayer. The wife of one of our chaplains is gravely ill. Her husband, Chaplain Scott Jackson (southern Baptist I believe), deployed to Iraq on Monday. Tuesday Heather was taken to the hospital and is now in a coma. I understand it is a diabetic complication and she is very near death. They have an 11 year old boy and a 3 year old little girl. Heather is a light in this darkness. She is one of those women you can very clearly see Jesus in. We need her here. Her husband and children need her. I understand that her son is taking this very hard which of course is understandable. Scott is now at her side, but please my sisters, please pray. Storm the gates of Heaven with us for her full recovery. I'll keep you updated as I learn more. Thank you.

I hopped over here from my friend Tammy's site, but it seems, from looking around, that we have lots of mutual bloggie friends. Your blog looks familar, too... maybe you've left a comment on my blog? But anyway, from a Marine wife with a deployed husband, know that I'm praying for this family. I can't even imagine...

Oh my goodness! I must have come across your blog by God's hand only. I happened to link to you from another blog entry from a year ago. I then decided to check out your current page and couldn't believe what I saw. I was a friend of Heather's at Ft. Campbell! I am also an army wife and Heather adopted her daughter after seeing us adopt our son. I had lost touch with her after both of us moved. I knew that she always had issues with her diabetes. I will be praying for her. Could you email me privately at cimsha@aol.com if you have contact info?

Blessings,
Shannon
