Please pray...


For those of you who may be visiting my Blog and somehow haven't heard... our super friends Crystal and Scott are having a very challenging week. Their daughter Emily, 9, has been diagnosed with Papillary Thyroid Cancer. This apparently is a "good" cancer to have. However, it is unimaginably terrifying to hear your baby has cancer. Please keep them all in your prayers. Emily will have to have her thyroid out in the next couple weeks. She is one of the bravest girls I know. They are in the process of finding a endocronoligist (I have NO idea how to spell that!) and getting ready for the surgery. Pray for peace and courage for the whole family and that they would find a good doctor. And obviously pray that Emily will get well! Also pray for Emily's brother Frank,8. I'm sure this is a strange time for him. Kim may be annoyed with me posting this...but...she told me that when we were little and I had my eye surgery she remembers wishing she too could have surgery because it was hard for her to see me getting all this special attention. When your that young it's hard to understand these things! So please remember the whole Kunze family in your prayers. They are like family to Mark, Kim, Malachy and I and we love them all so much (even little Madison who may someday marry my little Malachy) !! You can visit Crystal or Scotts blog for more details or to give them some much appreciated encouragement!

Wow (I say that a lot now) but wow! Thank you my super dear friend Steph. We are overwhelmed with e-mails, blog posts, comments on my forum, and phone calls. This is just SO AWESOME! GOD IS SO AWESOME! You know those pills I had to take? Well I haven't needed one in two days. I think because of all of the love, support, and encouragement that we are getting from all over the world. I just feel lifted up and I feel peace, PEACE!!! I will sing HIS praise forever NO MATTER what life brings.

Thanks again dear sweet friend.
