URGENT PRAYER REQUEST

I just popped over to Tiany's blog before heading off to bed. I was so dismayed to read the following post. Please, please lift this family up in prayer!

URGENT PRAYER REQUEST!!!
Posted in Prayer Requests
Marsha of Our Homeschool Happenings is missing her 3 year old little boy right now and they are actively searching for him. They live near a wooded area and a pond. Please please pray that they find him. She too has little boys as do I and my heart stopped when I found out her sweet boy was missing. I felt like I would be sick. I can not imagine what our poor Marsha must be feeling as well as her family.Please pray that they find him safe and well!!!

UPDATE- Divers have ruled out the pond and are searching with Dogs now on land.

UPDATE: It is with a heavy and terribly broken heart I share with you that the divers pulled Marsha's sweet boy "Christian" from the pond behind their home. To write that out is more then I can bare! It hurts to think of the pain Marsha and her family are going through right now.Please lift Marsha her husband David, their two boys and their families in prayer. Keep them in your prayers in the coming days and weeks.

Oh Pam, how very sorry I am to hear of this here. No words can express the heartbreak of this....only tears and more tears and prayers to somehow make it through what seems like an insurmountable tragedy....

I just came over to welcome you to Gatherings. Please come back and visit again. I enjoyed reading over your blog, too. I see you have Florida Baptist College listed, we have students from there in our church quite often.

I am so sorry to hear of this mother's tragedy. I will pray for them. So, so sad.

My heart is heavy with sadness over this as I images of my sons when they were little popped into my head, and I couldn't help thinking, what if it was one of mine.

My prayers shall certainly be with that poor family, that God give them the strength to face the days to come.

The Boss wandered off when he was 3. We're so thankful the dogs went with him and kept watch. There are ponds on adjoining properties (though not on ours) that he could have wandered into. Reading about little Christian just makes me so thankful for what we were spared.

God be with that family.
