Tugging on my Heart Strings

This morning I went to church with my parents. My cousins grandma (and aunts MIL) passed away early yesterday morning so my mom was looking through the friendship pad to write out a prayer request slip for them [which I would really appreciate if all of you would say a little prayer for their family as well :)]. When we write our prayer requests at our church we are supposed to place them in the offering plate but there was a prayer request from April still with the prayer request slips that had not yet been filled out.

Apparently, a little boy (I'm assuming) wrote a prayer request for his Aunt Tracey and didn't know you were supposed to put them in the offering plate. How sweet is that? He wanted her to have a happy new life. I am assuming (again) that nobody knew he wrote this or they would have informed him that it needed to be put in  the offering plate and because it seems he was a little confused on what to check. It broke my heart and warmed it at the same time when I saw this. I felt bad for him that it never got prayers or put in the church bulletin but at the same time it made me so happy that even as a child, he knew what prayer was and cared enough about his aunt to request it. You better believe that when it was time for silent prayer, I definitely said a prayer for Victor and his Aunt Tracey. 

Please, say a prayer for my Aunt, Uncle, cousins & family who lost someone dear to them this weekend, and if you could say a little prayer for Aunt Tracey, I know Victor would appreciate it :)

Happy Sunday Blog Friends!
