No Words

Sorry I haven't been posting for a while. I just have other things on my mind and blogging is way down on my priority list right now.

Many of you know about my 17 year-old niece, Hannah, who has been battling brain cancer for almost a year. She's been admitted to Children's in Little Rock again today but tomorrow they are planning to move her into hospice care. We know that without miraculous intervention her time with us is short. I don't have adequate words to describe my sorrow and grief. For now I'll just ask you to pray for wisdom for her parents, Brad and Jill, as they make decisions tomorrow about Hannah's care. And please pray for the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, to guard the hearts and minds of all of Hannah's family in Christ Jesus. Above all, pray for Hannah's comfort and that she won't be in pain.

But in the midst of it all, we celebrate that no matter what happens, Hannah's future is secure in Jesus.


That's Hannah on the right and her younger sister, Bethany, on the left.

I'll be keeping your sweet niece in my prayers. Having been on her side before, I can say it's a scary place to be, but it's so comforting to know who's in control. She's probably experiencing a peace beyond words right now, one that can only come from our Heavenly Father. Keep us updated!
