~HOW GREAT THOU ART..~

Dear blogging friends,
I won't be posting for awhile.  At this time I am not certain when I will return. 

I have alternated between praying and crying, usually both much of today. My precious daughter has had devasting news about her health and our family is in shock.  This is my eldest daughter Sandra.
I cannot think of anything but her right now.  I cannot concentrate on everyday things for more than a couple of minutes.
Please...please..pray for her.  Please hold her for a few moments in God's healing light.
I pray to God that He carry her and her little family and all of us on the frightening journey we have ahead of us.
My love to all of you and my wish is that you have a glorious Easter.
Mona


Sandy at age 2 years

Every mother's greatest nightmare is that harm will come to her child, no matter what the form of that harm or the age of that child. Dear friend, I am sending you caring thoughts and warm hugs to help you through a most difficult experience. Take strength from the many of us you care about you and are with you in spirit! Medicine is finding wonderful cures and treatments and giving hope where there was none before. All the very best to you and especially to your daughter. Hugs from Mel!

Hi All,

This is Kristy, Sandy's daughter.

Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers. Though I do want to say that the news is not as devastating as it sounds. We have caught this very early and the doctors are extremely optimistic as is my mother. We are making plans and moving forward with what needs to be done. Laughter and lightness are aplenty in our house despite what is going on. We are ready for the next phase.

Prayers are always appreciated, so thank you again.

Kristy

Debbi said...

wow Mona, there are a lot of your blogger friends praying for your daughter for sure. Sometimes we wonder why these things happen even when we have very strong faith. God has a plan for each and every one of us, and tho we may not understand how or why, we must trust him and keep our faith strong knowing that we all shine in his glory. My prayer for you is that he will give you strength to endure.
