Please pray!

To all my praying friends and family, please pray for my dear friend Beth. She was diagnosed with a glioblastoma about two and a half years ago. Every day since then has been a blessing from God for her, her husband, and their four BEAUTIFUL little girls, one of whom I had the privilege of teaching. They are in Kindergarten, 1st, 4th, and 5th grades, and being back at my old school has allowed me to see them all often.

Beth's health despite the tumor has been uncharacteristic for her diagnosis but is no real surprise to her. Her faith in God is so deep and evident. She even told me a couple months back that she wouldn't change anything. She accepts the situation she's in and uses it to glorify God.

This last week, her scan showed the tumor had grown about a cm in a three-week span, as opposed to the typical mm or so. Please keep her, her family, and her doctors in your prayers as they plan the next course of action. Pray for a miracle, and for strength and peace for each family member through their storm. Thanks!

Full of joy, the sense of humor is intact! Hat says, "No Hair Day."

The girls at the school talent show last year - so sweet!

Yes, I'll pray. I have a friend in a similare situation...please pray, too.

On a different note, I've been catching up on your blog. You have always been "A diamond in the rough", but you shine more now than ever. You always stood out, not in a "Hey, I'm fun..look at me" way, but in a "the light of Christ shines in my life" way. I'm blessed to have been an observer these past 12-13 years. How long has it been, anyway?
