Life has been tough lately. I can hardly find time to shower, much less update the blog. The last couple times I’ve tried there seems to be nothing of much value to share. I’m not a good pretender and it isn’t easy to talk about interiors and pretty things when your heart is hurting.
On Wednesday, I went to a memorial service for a friend who lost her daughter. There are not words to express the feelings in my heart. Brittany and Joe are amazing people. They have faith and strength unlike anything I have seen. I know God will continue to give them the strength to rejoice in the time they had with their precious baby and perservere through the mourning process. If you want to pray for my friends I know they would appreciate it.
Do you have a sister? I do. So does my sister-in-law Leah. Her sister is Misty… here she is below with her family @ Disney World.
Misty is 32 years old with 3 precious daughters. This summer she was diagnosed with Colorectal cancer. And just a couple of weeks ago she found out that the cancer has spread to her lungs and lymph nodes. She is now battling Stage 4 Colorectal Cancer. Misty candidly shares her journey in her blog HERE. Want to know how you can help? There are all sorts of opportunities: check out the Fight For Misty website HERE. Please keep Misty in your prayers.
The holidays are here. This is a season of hope. And earlier this week I almost decided to not put up a Christmas tree. Bah humbug, right? I haven’t been feeling very festive and just didn’t to mess with it. But yesterday I was reminded that God is good, even in the hard times. I know that even in these hardships He has great things in store for my friends.
I put up the Christmas tree yesterday. I’m glad I did. I even strung colored lights up in our kitchen. It looks like something straight out of my college dorm room, but I kinda like it. Sloane does too!
Thanks for praying for my friends!
