Early Christmas for Noah

Recently, I came across a post on Facebook about a little boy who has been battling cancer for years. It is so sad to think about a child having to deal with such an illness and my heart goes out to the parents as well. I can't even imagine my child having cancer or losing a child to cancer. So when I came across the story of a little boy named Noah from Michigan who probably won't make it for Christmas, it touched my heart.

He is really sick, but I still hold out hope for a miracle. I pray that this isn't God's will and that his will is to heal. My little girls asked me if God will heal him. How difficult to explain that it may be this little boys time to go to heaven.

Because of his health, his parents decided to celebrate Christmas early. My hope is that you will join my family and thousands of others around the nation in sending a Christmas card to Noah. My daughters made handmade Christmas cards with words of encouragement and attached their photos.

If you'd like to send a Christmas card, please try to do so as soon as possible, because his time may be short.

Before I Dream...

Recently, I found this beautiful book, Before I Dream Bedtime Bible Story Book by Karyn Henley, in a thrift store. What a find! The girls have enjoyed hearing God's word each evening, written as stories at their level. Each evening, they ask for a new story even before I begin reading.
