I woke up to FB statuses and emails I can't ignore and since we have proven to be a powerfully positive group of people, I am going to ask you all to send out healing vibes, good thoughts, prayers, white light, and/or whatever YOU use to keep yourself afloat. There's a lot going on in this crazy, mixed-up, glorious, beautiful world and I need to share three stories this morning.
We need ALL PRAYER WARRIORS! Just left ER with our 11 year old Jake. They did a cat scan and find what they believe is a brain tumor at the base of his skull. We go to Riley for an MRI and testing at 10 am. Please pray. God knows how much we can handle and I am a little tired. Praying this is just another situation where we will see the faithfulness of God.
If you have been following along on this blog, you know Amy has had massive medical issues. You know Jeff lost his job. You know this has been beyond a ride for them. You also know the strength Amy and Jeff and the kids have.
Money won't help make the medical tests easier, but it will make their day to day living easier. Once again I am appealing to you to consider contributing to the fundraiser I created. Click HERE to do so.
My friend, Jen Pellingra
In March of this year, at age 35, Jen was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Like so many, Jen has no health insurance.
Jen has to have her thyroid removed as well as deal with a myriad of other issues that happens when one gets this ill.
A marvelous fundraising page has been set up for her, HERE. Read her story, watch the short video and if you can share, please consider giving to her equally worthy self.
My friend Robin's best friends daughter
Praying tonight for my best friend's daughter who was hit by a hit and run driver today while walking home from work. She's 6 months pregnant. So far they've been able to slow contractions. Praying this continues and she will deliver full term. Leaving it in God's tender care. Thankful for a relational, attentive, loving God.
Enjoy this Friday.
THIS song, is for all of us.
How sweet it is to love someone how right it is to care
