Prayers for a family...

I generally keep my blog pretty silly. I enjoy laughing – and I want to share that with other people.

But today I want to share something that has been heavy on my heart for several weeks.

Blogs are funny things because they can pull you into someone’s life – without you ever knowing that person. That happened to me with Joel and Jess McClenahan. I’ve never met them – but I came across their blog several weeks ago – and they have been on my mind and in my heart ever since.

They lost their 10 month old daughter to cancer. Her name was Cora. Her battle was fierce – and very fast. She passed away three weeks after the doctors discovered the disease.

She died in early February.

Today is her birthday.

Please pray for this couple. They have an unimaginable faith in unimaginable circumstances.

I’ve been so touched by this family’s journey – in so many ways. Here is the link to their blog.

Please keep them in your prayers.

She was a beautiful little girl. A terrible loss. Seems it was a good thing you came across their blog. I know there will be little comfort at this time, but I hope and pray it comes soon for them. I really can't imagine what they're going through.

I know what you mean....I was a total mess when I read their blog a couple weeks ago.

I've been reading their blog, and although I always end up crying, I am also always inspired by their incredible faith that God is taking care of both them and their little angel. It helps me to put things in perspective when I start to complain about Kaleb's endless energy and our sleepless nights. Thanks for posting this :)
