Thankful and Prayers Requested for Gina

MY POST FROM Threads of Fler :
This Sabbath Morning I am thankful.
I just finished reading Sarah Young's"Jesus Calling" devotion for the day.

I do not have to figure everything out for my life. I have a Heavenly Father who does that for me. If I stand still and rest in His peace, He will lead the way.
In lieu of the fall season upon us, I decided it was time to craft a new plate for display.
I decided on a design, our monogram for our last name, and simply the word "thankful".

I think it is really easy to focus on ourselves and the things we wish we could change or would like to happen in our lives but for some reason they are out of reach. 

Yesterday, I learned of Tim's childhood friend's wife receiving devastating news. For over a year she has been fighting breast cancer. She was diagnosed mid-pregnancy with her third child. She delivered her child early when it was safe to do so and baby is doing fine. They have three children 5 and under. She had a bilateral radical mastectomy and immediately began chemo and her treatment plan.

Yesterday she shared the doctors have found the cancer has now spread to several hotspots on her lungs. She plans to have them biopsied to see if her course needs to change, but is faced with losing her life WAY too soon. She is planning on making video diaries for her children and husband. I simply CANNOT imagine what she and her family is going through. Life does not make sense sometimes.

Thankfully, God can make sense of it all. If not today, there will come a day where there will be NO MORE tears and we'll see Jesus face-to-face.
Please join our home in praying for Gina.
