Our God is Greater....

I've been struggling to figure out how to put into words what's happening in our lives as I write this. Just a week ago I was consumed with thoughts of a floundering Stampin' Up! business, a broken relationship with a relative and the tragic images coming out of Japan. Then, all of the sudden things were put into perspective as we got word that my best friend has stage 3 Breast Cancer. Cancer? Really? I spent the rest of the week kind of walking around in a daze. Did I dream this? Is there a chance that the diagnosis was wrong? How do I face the possibility that I might lose her?

While I don't claim to know all of the answers, I do know this for sure. Tammy is a believer and will spend eternity at the feet of Jesus no matter when that time comes. If you are of the praying persuasion, I would be grateful for any prayers that you might offer up on her behalf. And if it seems as if I'm hit or miss around here, it's because I've committed myself to being there for her every step of the way.

Go and hug your loved ones.....tell them how much they mean to you and rest in the arms of a loving God that knows everything.

I'll leave you with this.....
