Boston My Heart and Prayers are with you!!

April 17, 2013

Marathon Monday, it is a big deal in my family, my daughter Sarah (Runfargirl) has run it with my daughter-in-law, Danielle (Endurancegal).  We have made the trip down, stood on the sidewalk at the finish line…

I watched on TV the Elite women and men cross the finish line and then headed off to do some errands.  Danielle’s brother Will was running this year, her whole family would be there to watch.

Standing in line at the grocery store my phone rang, my daughter who lives on the west coast calling.  Mom did you hear the news?  No I am in the grocery store, she told me of the blasts and then said Chris and Danielle are ok they are leaving town.  Quickly getting home and turning on the TV I saw the panic and chaos.  My prayers began in earnest!  There are no words to describe the feeling in the pit of your stomach, the emotion, the panic.  I remember so well 9-11, it felt like that all over again.

I did not realize until later how close Chris, Danielle and family were…they were in the bleachers across the street from the first blast.  Praying for them constantly as they process this whole thing, as we all process this.

We knew many people who were either running, helping, spectating, all safe, many who live in Boston helping runners and others in the confusion.  Some offering homes, beds, food and hugs.  Boston is a city of strong people…it will recover.

Please pray for those who were injured, some very gravely.  Pray for those families who lost loved ones. Pray for those who witnessed it and responded.  Pray for Boston.

“Here my cry, O God,  listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint.  Lead me to the rock that is higher that I, for you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy.”  Psalm 61:1-3


In His Grace,


Praying for Boston!
