Sad News

Before I even begin with this story please know that God is amazing and has his hands in all things. I had mentioned that Emm's sweet ex boyfriend is still a dear friend to us and that we had even met his new girlfriend (sweet girl). They even stopped by this past Sunday. We had been praying about this lump on her neck and yesterday was biopsy day. I hugged her Sunday evening and told her not to worry. Ashley is 19 1/2, just finished her medical asst program, started her internship yesterday and has this amazing new boyfriend. Life is good. Last night I got the call from Cory's mom that just was like a punch in the gut...Tina it's Cancer!! That's all this sweet women could get out. She will call me today with more details but in the mean time could you all be in prayer for this sweet young woman and Cory. Remember Cory is a two time cancer survivor and this family has been down this road. If a word of scripture comes to you please share it with me.
Again, God has a plan.

I immediately thought of Psams 34:17-18

Is anyone crying for help? God is listening, ready to rescue you. If your heart is broken, you'll find God right there; if you're kicked in the gut, he'll help you catch your breath.

Praying for everyone involved in this ...

Jeremiah 29:11 - God knows the plans he has for you. Plans to give us hope and a future.

How fortunate that she has Cory in her life right now. He knows everything she is feeling and he can help her along the way. He knows what it feels like to be scared ... he knows what it feels like to have hope ... he knows what it feels like to say "I am a cancer survivor". He knows and he will be a blessing to her in the days ahead.

I am so sorry. That is tough to take. Remember I was saying Sunday service was on joy and it isn't always easy to have joy? Here is the song that was awesome at the end of the service. Delirious "Trading my Sorrow" Love it! Maybe it will help a little.
