Jarrett

6 Feb

I mentioned in a post a few months ago that the place where my dad had worked for nearly all of my life had decided to ‘close up shop’ due to the present economic conditions. This change was difficult for our family, not so much financially, but in that many of the people he worked with were like family to us and the place itself held so many memories. Over the last little while, the Lord has been faithful (as He ALWAYS is!), providing a new place of employment and teaching us that no matter what changes come, He will continue to be constant.

Out of all the people that worked at the dealership, the ladies that worked in the office are especially dear to us. Over the years, I can remember wanting to make my way to their office whenever we would visit Dad at work.

This morning, Daddy got a call from one of the ladies named Linda. Linda’s desk was at the back of the office so she was the first one we would talk to when we snuck in the Employees Only door to make our frequent visits. Through knowing Linda, we also are privileged to know her grandson, Jarrett. I think Jarrett is about 17  now and in his senior year of high school. Over the years, he has dealt with heart problems, but has always had such a joyful spirit.

 Linda called to inform us of complications he is dealing with today and to request that I post a prayer request for him. He was admitted to John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore after going to Upper Chesapeake and needing more treatment.

I ask that you would lift Jarrett, Linda and their family up the Lord today. I don’t know all of the details or what his condition entails, but the Lord does. As we have seen over and over again, He, our Faithful Creator, knows His creation better than any of us and has the ability to bring complete healing.

Thank you in advance for praying for these sweet friends. I will keep you updated.

“The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.”

Psalms 34:15
