Heart Break

Yesterday I heard on the news about the 4 Police Officers that were killed here in Washington. We have some dear friends that have family members who are Police officers, and I know that they are worried and heart broken today. Our prayers and thoughts go out to them. Then I also heard yesterday that a dear friend of mine has lung cancer. She had already battled and beaten cancer a few years ago and now she is battling it again. My heart goes out to her family and her. I am telling you, these are tough things that are going on in the world and in our lives today. I hope all of us will be grateful for what we have and keep a prayer in our hearts for those around us who are suffering. I pray that we will all have the faith that we will need to sustain us during these times and a give us a peace that the world can't offer.

So tonight I would like to leave you with a couple of thoughts and a poem. Good night dear friends!


What Cancer Cannot Do

Cancer is so limited
It cannot cripple love
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot corrode faith
It cannot destroy peace
It cannot kill friendship
It cannot suppress memories
It cannot silence courage
It cannot invade the soul
It cannot steal eternal life
It cannot conquer the spirit.

"No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear. " ~ C.S. Lewis

"To live in hearts we leave behind
Is not to die."
