Some folks need your prayers

My friend Jim is asking for prayers for his brother, Wayne. Wayne was just diagnosed with prostate cancer a few days ago. Wayne has left for a 2-week mission trip to the Ukraine and is supposed to have surgery when he returns. Please pray for him and his entire family.

If you're a mommyblogger, you may already know about Heather. Heather is a web/blog designer and homeschool mom of 3. She has already been through more than most of us... giving birth to a child who had a heart transplant at the age of 5 months, and who has been diagnosed with autism. Heather just found out that she has a glioma, a brain tumor, which may or may not be operable. There are many unknowns; she is awaiting an appointment at the Mayo Clinic in 2 weeks. Take time to back up and read about the progression of this story from the beginning.... you will be touched, amazed, convicted of those times your faith has faltered. On the 18th, there is going to be a love offering taken up to help Heather and her husband cover expenses. You'll be able to contribute by visiting BooMama's blog and clicking on a "Donate Now" link she'll have. That pretty "For Heather" graphic at the right will take you there now, but the donation link at BooMama's won't be there till the 18th.

Hi Karen! Thanks for stopping by. I enjoyed visiting your blog. I may be stopping back by soon for some homeschooling questions. :) I just started this year and am still getting the hang of it.

Have a great weekend!
Love, Michelle

Heather's story breaks my heart.
Her courage is amazing.

I read last week in Anne Lamott's book Traveling Mercies,

"Courage is fear that has said it's prayers."

God bless Heather.
