  1. I have a joy. It is so heartwarming to see this community come together in a crisis whether it be by making medical masks or feeding people via our food pantries and porch deliveries or just reaching out to the lonely. God is alive in us.

  2. I am blessed to have a job in which I am considered an essential employee in a state group home. That’s a joy, but also a concern. If a resident gets infected, then we will likely have to care for them during quarantine and we do not have sufficient personal protection equipment. I am worried. Pray for me. Brian Murphy

    1. Thank you for serving our community in this way. Is there something specifically that you need as far as PPE that could be made at home such as medical masks?

  3. We pray for all of the health professionals, as well as the pharmacists. Then let’s also pray for all of the people who are deemed essential such as our postal workers, the grocery store workers, our pastor, truck drivers, church workers in the after school program, Tricia, group home employees, and many, many more.

  8. My joy: Coming home from the store yesterday and seeing eggs in the windows! Totally made me happy and made me want to drive around and find more!
    My concern: Although we try hard to protect ourselves at the grocery store with wipes and masks and hand sanitizer, I didn’t see a lot of the workers at Walmart taking the same precautions for THEMSELVES, the store was sanitizing carts and directing us, but the workers weren’t wearing masks or gloves. Please pray for them.

  11. Please pray for not only those suffering from this terrible virus who are alone in a hospital not allowed to have visitors but also their family who cannot be with their loved ones who are sick at this time. Please pray for those who know their loved one is dying but cannot be there physically with them. And pray for those healthcare workers who are there with them at these times and try to not only take care of them medically but emotionally and spiritually during this time.

  18. I have a joy to share, Logann had joined our family when my son Michael married her mother Krystal when she was a couple years old. She has since graduated with a MBA from Binghamton University (last May) and now works for Eastern Michigan University. On Fathers Day, she gave paper work to my son asking if he would adopt her, as he has always been there for her. Michael was honored to do so, and I am proud to say she is offically my Granddaughter, even though in my and our families heart she aways has been.

    1. I had Logann when she was in K-2 and am so happy to hear of her success. Micheal always came with Krystal to teacher conferences, open houses, plays, etc and I am thrilled for all of them to be “official”!!
