Yowzas. It happens though. Hopefully she won't pass away and will be okay...

I have never heard anything like that before....but I guess it can happen.

Ummmm, OOPS is right!

Evey said...

OOPS is an understatement. Yikes!

Hey, Matt just told me about that. More than a little humerous....unfortunately she passed away THIS morning. There's nothing like jumping the gun:).

That IS a BIG oops! How embarrassing!
Poor lady is still breathing; give her a break!

That is an embarrassing and big OOPS! It also illustrates something I learned in my 20 years as a Pastor: that is to doublecheck Prayer requests. Unfortunately, a request often changes as it travels from person to person. We must pray for and support each other. We also need to be sure we share requests accurately.
From someone who has been there; in the middle of similiar OOPS situations, that is.
May God strengthen your Pastor as he works with this family!
