Today is Our Day...

Wanted to give a quick shout out to my cousin Todd, wife Holly and their son Hunter on this day!

For the past few years, shortly after the year turns new, we receive a letter or postcard in the mail from Holly and Hunter. It's usually a sweet little note, but one with a huge message. It tells us what day they have set aside to pray especially for our family and encourages us to send special requests to them so they can lift up our concerns! Today, March 29th, is our day.

Every day of the year they pray together throughout the day for a different person or family that is special to them in some way! What a terrific committment! I imagine how much fun this tradition must be for them...and a fabulous way to share the power of prayer, rememberance of others, and some cherished quality time together.

And while we only see Todd, Hollly and Hunter every few years, it makes them feel closer knowing that at the least this one time each year, we are in their thoughts! And who can't use a few prayers lifted up on their behalf!!!
