Pray for This Family

Hello faithful blog readers. I have some disturbing news today, and any of you who pray, please say a prayer for this sweet little baby girl. My friend Bonnie, who I have mentioned, oh, forty or fifty thousand times on here (!) went through an awful experience last night. Her baby girl, Diamond, was attacked by a ferret. Diamond will be fine, thank God, but has 19 bites on her face and scratches on her body. The doctors don't think there will be scarring, and Bonnie says that she looks a lot better today than she did last night. I just wish I could be with them right now!!

They spent the night in the ER and are being released today. The worst part of all of this is that Bonnie and Diamond are not at home, but on a road trip with friends (who must be absolutely mortified, as it is their pet ferret), and Bonnie's husband Caleb is here at home and has to be feeling so powerless to help them right now.

It was a life-altering experience for Bonnie, and I haven't talked to her in depth about it as she had very few minutes left on her cell phone, but I just wanted to ask everyone to lift their little family up in prayer, both for Diamond's well-being, and also for the emotional well-being of some of my best friends on this earth. Prayer is powerful!

Thanks, people!

OH MY! I am catching up on my blog reading and can't believe my eyes. I can't imagine the horror of that experience. Oh, Bon and Diamond, thank you God, that you are okay. WE LOVE YOU!!!!
