Plots and Subplots (and a request for prayer)

My intention today was to post about how subplots can pop up in the middle of a story, providing interesting diversity… much like the sword fern in the midst of this patch of cranesbill.

Instead, my thoughts are with a much loved family member who is in hospital awaiting emergency major surgery. The pink cranesbill blossoms remind me of her blog which is also very pink: Noni Grace: Random Thoughts and Reminiscing.

Rather than give you a post on writing today, I would be most grateful if you would take time to whisper a little prayer for her.


 “Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:6-7

  1. What a sweet face your aunt has! Praying for wisdom for the medical staff – and skill. For peace of mind, restfulness as she waits and steady, sure healing as she recovers. Blessings, Carol.

  2. Father, God,
    We place Noni Grace in your loving arms. Be with her in a very real way this day. Grant skill and expertise to her caretakers that the outcome of today’s events may be successful.

    Wrap your arms around Carol and comfort her with your presence and with the knowledge that nothing surprises you. You are there before us and have made provision for any circumstance.

    We thank you that you are the same, yesterday, today, and forever. In Jesus’ most precious name we pray. Amen.

  3. Thanks for your prayers and kind words today. Noni is in “a holding pattern” as they wait for blood thinners to clear out of her system. Surgery is scheduled for Tuesday.

    1. Loving Father, I pray for your grace and healing for Noni Grace. Please guide the hands of the doctors as they perform the surgery in order that all will go well. I pray, Lord, that the surgery site will heal quickly and there will be no complications and that the procedure accomplishes that for which it is intended. I pray too, Lord, for peace for all the family members as they lean on you during this time. In Jesus Name, Amen.

I'd love to hear from you!
