Tapped.

Put a fork in me, I'm done.

I can't even begin to tell you how done.

I'm not sure where to begin. I could go back and try to let you know what's been going on the last few weeks, months. Or I could just start from here.

For now, I'm going forward. I'll try to post some softball pictures and that sort of thing in the next day or two, but for now, I've got to press forward.

And forward is coming to you with two HUGE prayer requests.

Chris Seidman, the preacher at our dear church in Dallas, needs you to help storm the gates of Heaven with prayer on behalf of his son, Skyler. Skyler has meningitis and is a very, very sick little boy. You can follow Chris on Twitter with the "handle" (All I know is CB-speak.) of ChrisSeidman. Please, please be praying for this precious family.

And now, what is heavy on my heart.... this is one of those times where you struggle with the "blog or not to blog" question. But believing in prayer the way I do -- and believing in the blanket of prayer available through your extended family and friends, I would be remiss if I didn't share with you.

Our Mimi has been having troubles for at least 18 months now. Those of you who know her know that she's been in a lot of pain for many years because of her back. But for a long while she's been having some other problems as well. I'm not going to go into the full-out details, but please know that effects of this are quite serious and that she needs your prayers. She's seeing a neurologist today. Please pray that he will recognize how big an issue this is and that he will do everything in his power to help find a way through this. Please pray for all of us as we work our way through it as well.

Having lost my Mom way too soon, Mimi is the only grandmother our girls have. We need her to get well.

Thanks.

Hey D'Lyn,
I'm in prayer for Chris and his son Skyler. You and I both know God can heal Skyler, and I'm petitioning our Father for that.

I am also praying for Mimi and the doctors surrounding her, along with your family. You're all very dear to me and I pray God gives each of you strength, peace and healing through this.
