Please Pray for My Sister

I just got off the phone with my mom and my little sister. My little sister and her family came home tonight to find that their home had been broken into. While they are still evaluating what has been taken, it is obvious that all of their big ticket items are gone. I feel horrible for them and so helpless at the same time. No matter how old she gets, I still feel very protective over my sister. While she was putting on a strong front, I could hear in her voice that she was devastated. On my 10th birthday, our home was broken into. Luckily, my grandfather stopped by before the man was able to take anything more than my father's wedding ring and some small things that fit in his pocket. But I remember the feeling. It's an indescribable feeling of being violated. I hate that my sister and her family are having to feel that way tonight. I'm thankful that stuff can be replaced and no one was physically harmed. I don't do this often, but I tonight I am asking that you please say a prayer for my sister and her family. Pray that they can somehow feel safe in their own home again. Thank you so much!


  1. So sorry to hear about that. I will be keeping your sister in my thoughts. Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest. I wish you and your family better days.

  2. How awful! You're right, things can be replaced, but it's difficult to replace a feeling of security.

    I hope everything turns out well.

  3. Praying for your sister and her family, Cole. That is hard. Our Oklahoma house was broken into while we were away visiting family. They even took leftover cake out of the fridge! I was so upset. I was pregnant with Isaac and had spent a night in the hospital over our visit for low amniotic fluid, so I was feeling incredibly vulnerable.

    I don't know if your sister was out of town when this happened or just out, but you can have the police patrol while you're away. They drive by twice a day and once a day walk around the home. It gave me peace of mind for the rest of the time we were stationed there.

  4. Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers!


Comments?! Yes, please! I'll return the love.
