Prayer


I come to you,my blogging friends,requesting prayer.It was just 7 months ago that I said good-bye to my dear husband,and now his youngest sister,age 63,is battling the same cancer he had,pancreatic cancer.
Please pray for this lady,her husband and her adult son.
The pain is very raw at this time.
Actually Jake's whole family is reeling from this news,as we all have not finished grieving the loss of one so dear.
I thank-you in advance for your prayers and caring.

Ruth, there is a young husband and father in our area who has survived pancreatic cancer for a couple of years now. I follow his progress on his CaringBridge page: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/danharhigh. He just posted a link to a short video that Mattress Firm has made about pancreatic cancer and featuring this man. Here's the link to the video: http://www.poptent.net/media/40047

I just thought you might be interested in his story.

Michelle said...

So very sorry to hear such awful news. Praying for you and his family. What a frightening time for his sister...may she know that there's power in prayer where two or more are gathered (and there are many here).

This is a beautiful picture, Ruth. Such detail and gorgeous dof. Thanks for sharing your camera/lens info with me. It was a big factor in my decision.

Rick said...

That is very sad news, Ruth. You, Jake's sister and your entire family will be in the prayers of many as you deal with this. May He who brings peace that passes all understanding keep you enfolded in his arms. May He also provide healing.

This past weekend we remembered my father-in-law who passed into glory 7 years ago - he too fought pancreatic cancer, for 2 years.

You are in our prayers. I am so sorry to learn this news.

Very sad news...

Been thinking of you and your family - and praying and praying.
Big hugs...

What a beautiful and delicate flower! I love how you captured the color along with excellent DOF & composition. Just a great shot.

Becky said...

Ruth, I am very sorry to hear this news. You all will stick together and see Jake's sister through this. I'll be praying for all of you. Take care.

So sorry to hear that, Ruth. I did not know that you lost your husband such a very short time ago. I lost a friend to this same cancer and it was so hard to watch. Keeping you and your family in my prayers. (Love the photo too)

stardust said...

I came across this post and got attentive to the praying sky-blue flower as I posted about it on my blog. I’m sorry to hear about your loss of loved husband. My 90-year-old mother recalls 20 years ago that the first year was the most hard for her remembering every passage of seasons they had shared. Your husband will be with you protecting and guiding. Let me pray for your sister-in-law and believe that she’ll be all right again. Keeping my fingers crossed.

It is really sad news, Ruth! I will keep you and the family in my thoughts and prayers.

warriormom said...

Praying for each of you that you will all feel immeasurably God's peace and comfort, resting in His steadfast hand. So hard to understand why...but grateful for knowing WHO. ((hugs))

forgetmenot said...

Ruth, I'm so sorry--sometimes life just keeps giving us challenges. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Your photo was so lovely--it brings a sense of peace, even when there seems to be none. Take care. Hugs, Mickie :)

Anita Johnson said...

Oh, Ruth, we will add this to our prayers.

EG CameraGirl said...

This is incredibly bad news, Ruth! I pray that your family finds peace amidst all of this chaos.

Unknown said...

A very beautiful flower you have selected for a Prayer.

God Bless

Valerie said...

Ruth - so sorry to just be getting this news now - please know I am praying for Jake's sister, praying for her family, and praying for you. May God strengthen you all as you walk this road.

Monica H said...

Oh bless your heart and hers too. It's never too late for prayer and I will certainly send one up for her tonight.
