Today I am taking a meal to some friends of ours. They are a couple we know from Church and the man, who is just in his late 20's, is very, very ill with Meningitis. Needless to say, meals have been set up so they don't have to worry about eating. (Well...I guess more his wife and family, because he won't be eating regular food for a while I suppose.) Anyway, his wife is about 6 months preggers with their first child. So, please pray for his full recovery and their family in this time of need.
Since I'm taking lunch, which I've never done before when taking meals to people, I decided to do sandwiches and potato salad. To be honest, I couldn't think of anything, so I called my mom for brainstorming and she came up with this! Great idea huh? So, I just made 10 little chicken salad sandwiches and the eggs are boiling (and about done!) for the egg salad sandwiches. I made the potato salad last night and stuck it in one of those foil pans. (Then they don't have to worry about what to do with the dish I sent it in, and they don't have to return it to me!) I'm also individually wrapping the sandwiches to make it easier.
Anyway, meningitis is always pretty serious, but I guess this strain is one of the worst. There are already three cases in the county where I live, and one 29 year old died on Monday from it. (According to the paper.) Such a sobering thought, that young people can die from something like this, with all the modern medicine around. I guess it just goes to show that we are in fact not God and cannot control things. What we can do is pray though. So I ask for your prayers for this family, and the other one with meningitis too. Thank you.
