This was just emailed to me:
Please pray for Laurie who is very close to delivering her first. Her due date is this week. She's 80% effaced, with no dilation.
Oh, the joys of the unknown...I remember going into labor with my first. I had my holy water, picture of Our Lady, rosary, crucifix, (yes my birthing room looked like a chapel), and Lamaze breathing cards, I figured it would be a breeze...HA! What a joke. You never can explain real labor.
Lord, please bless this sweet girl and have the labor go quick and easy!!!
THY WILL BE DONE!!! +JMJ+
