Good news today!! My doc was really positive and encouraging. Now that I'm a little over a year out from sarcoma removal surgery, my chances of a local recurrence or distant metastasis are drastically reduced!!! Yippyyyyy!!!!! A good day. A really good day!
But there are others having hard days. Really hard days. Like Julie, who is 33-year-old mommy of three kids ages 7, 4 and 10 months and collapsed Sunday while on a walk from a heart attack. She hasn't regained consciousness yet. Will you join me in praying for her?
And my friend, Kathryn, who will face cancer surgery May 9, the Monday after Mother's Day. They day after she celebrates being mommy to her two boys and celebrates her own mother who is now deceased from complications caused by cancer treatment, she will look her own cancer diagnosis in the face. Will you join me in praying that is the last time she ever sees it? Will you join me in praying cancer would not rob her family of any more life?
When I went through my own diagnosis of cancer, it was only a matter of hours before a prayer wall was erected on Facebook and my own family was lifted 24 hours a day. It was awesome. And overwhelming. And humbling.
My prayer quickly went from Heal me, God, I want to live to Heal me, God, they need to experience Your goodness. God answered! Because He answered and healed me, I am able to not only pay back what I received but I intend to pray back what I received. Will you join me in praying it forward here each Friday where you are invited to share a prayer request on your own blog and link up here.
I hope each of you will join me in helping others find Christ in their crises.
