Not so Wordless Wednesday

Tuesday was a tough day for me...Not me personally but I have so many family and friends in need of miracles and prayer power...My day started off with a very sad story about one of my cousin's friends who is the same age as my J. The young man whom his friends called "Whisper" because he had an Esophagus problem and spoke only in a whisper. The coaches announced to the football team Monday night that they needed to prepare to go to the funeral of their teammate...I guess unbeknownst to the team and friends Whisper had found out in June that he had Lung Cancer...And he was in the hospital's PEDS ICU, so many went to visit him and it was very hard. Tuesday evening 11 minutes before my cousin and friends made it to the hospital Whisper passed away. This is just tearing my heart apart, this boy was my son's age! The only thing I wanted to do all day was find my son and hug him!! And when I did it felt great!! He of course was wondering what the heck was going on!! He of course understood after I told him...

I also have a friend who is waiting in limbo to find out if he is dying from cancer...He is a very good man and he has children that he takes great care of, and I pray that his cancer is not the terminal one.. It will be 1 of 3 types and the worst being a full diagnosis of a terminal cancer with short time to live..

Then I find out tonight that my SIL's granny has had a stroke Tuesday. I do not have the details but it doesn't sound really good from what small bits I have figured out..

So many prayers needed...So please join me and put these families in your prayers...

This picture was taken Monday evening when my Cousin was at the hospital with his friend Whisper...Amazing the rays of light...And no I didn't know anything at that point

  3. Those are some big trials. So sorry to hear about that young boy. That's really unbelievable that he had LUNG cancer at such a young age. I've never heard of that. My honey's dad died from lung cancer 1 1/2 ago. He never smoked. It was the hardest time of our lives. Sending some prayers your way Michelle.

    BTW your new background is lovely. Nice change:)
