In the midst of that joy, however, my heart was heavy and my prayers focused. We have some friends from the days when we lived in E. Texas whose two year old daughter was diagnosed with brain cancer last month. I just can’t imagine the new reality they are in. You can keep up with Phoebe and updates on her condition here.
Then some my friends of mine from high school youth group days (you might recognize BlissfulE from the comments section), their parents were hit by a car while walking. Their mom came away with a broken pelvis and has now been released from the hospital. Their dad is in stable but critical condition after immediate brain surgery. You can read his updates here.
I don’t mean to be so heavy after being away, but I’ve had such a range of emotions this past week. From joy to sorrow to praying and believing for miracles. I hope you will rejoice with me as well as send your thoughts and prayers to these two families. After all, isn’t that the beauty of blogging? That we can celebrate each other’s joys and lift each other up when we need it?
