As Christmas is now just a couple of days away, and we go into our own little worlds with our families, friends, and traditions, my heart is aching.
Sour and I are being overwhelmingly blessed with this ability to carry and birth this sweet little boy. And then given the huge responsibility of raising him. I don't know how we deserve it.
But this year as I am selfishly missing my family, hating that I am missing Christmas morning with my niece and nephew and then breakfast at my Nanny's house, God has stepped in and put a burden on my heart.
I know of 2 families that need an overwhelming amount of prayers this season and on.
My old roommate's dad has just been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer that has already spread to his stomach, adrenal gland, and several spots on his brain. They are starting radiation today following with chemo. So this Christmas as they try to enjoy it with their sweet new baby girl, they are disparately praying for healing and a miracle. My friend has already lost her mom and she is not prepared or willing to lose another parent.
Another friend's 2 year old daughter has just under gone surgery to remove a brain tumor on Friday. They found it after normal 2 year old accident and now dealing with healing their baby girl. They will be spending their Christmas in the hospital as she recovers from surgery. They should have biopsy results within the week and then go from there for a treatment plan.
So I ask you as you go about your celebrations that one you are aware of all the blessings that you have, and two that you remember these families and many more. I ask that you pray for healing above all but that God's will be done. Pray for Peace, that they may know without a doubt that God has not forsaken them, that nothing that is happening is a surprise to Him.
