My heart rejoices with Amy who is now in the presence of her Savior but grieves for the family and friends she left behind. I know Amy only through her blog which I have read for the past several months. I have been challenged and encouraged by her steadfast faith and love for the Lord despite trials that most of us can't imagine. Amy battled cancer for the past 14 months; she fought hard. Please keep her husband and 21 month old son in your prayers.
I am so excited for Jeff and Abbey as they welcome their son into their family. They are also blog friends (we've never met in person) but I came across their blog when they were just beginning the adoption process. Their adorable son is from Taiwan. Congrats Lands - we are so happy for you and so thrilled that another beautiful child has found a forever family! God bless all three of you!
And finally, I remember clearly this day 6 years ago. I was at work when the planes hit the World Trade Center. What a terrifying day! Please take time to say thank you to those serving our country, to remember those who have given their lives for our freedom, and to say a prayer for the families that lost loved ones so unexpectedly on 9/11.
