Hi Everyone! It's been a while since I've been on JM. I've missed you all.

I guess I'll just jump in with a prayer request. One of Rick's nieces was diagnosed recently with end stage brain cancer. It can't be treated so we are just doing everything we can to make her last few months with us as joyful and comfortable as possible.

She is a beautiful young woman and her faith is strong. She doesn't fear death. But this is still very hard on all of us and we could use your prayers.

Also, I'm sure the tragedy in CT hasn't escaped anyone's thoughts or prayers these last few days. But I just wanted to ask that we all keep the entire community of Newtown in our prayers for as long as we can remember to. A friend of mine is a teacher in that school district (not the same school).

Between dealing with all that and all the usual craziness that the holiday season brings around here, I have had no free time to be on JM. I've really missed it. Hoping to have some time this week to get caught up with everyone. Praying for many blessings for you all!

Hi Anna! I noticed you hadn't been on lately and was wondering how everything was going with you. So sorry to hear about Rick's niece - how tragic! Glad that she has faith though and knows where she's going. That's at least some comfort in the time of all this. I'll be praying for her and all her family.

I've though of the shooting multiple times. It just hit a big empty pit in my stomach. Your friend must have been really shook up over all this! I couldn't image knowing someone that worked in that school district. DH works for a school district and we were talking about it and he said if he was at a school (he goes to every school site in the district daily) and heard gun shots that he'd go and try and run towards where they are in order to try and stop more tragic from happening. That just makes me stop and think more.

Everytime I think about the tragedy in CT I cry. I can't imagine what the families are going through. You're friend in the district must be devestated. My heart aches for everyone. I will keep all of those people in my prayers.

I'll also be praying for Rick's niece and all of their family. She sounds like a wonderful young lady. She has a strong faith and is a very strong person. I'm really sorry to hear about what she is going through and that you all have to go through this.

Glad to hear from you Anna. Merry Christmas!
Trisha--proud stay at home mommy and wife.

So sorry to hear this... Lord touch her and her family
~ Ginger

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb...I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made...My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together...Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16
