Nora's Circle of Grace
2/10/2016 Latest post:
Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.
Our mother Nora received a diagnosis of Stage IV lung cancer with metastasis to the lymph nodes, bones and liver on January 28th. She has already started her courageous fight and we have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from our family and friends.
Mom has tremendous courage and an amazing attitude about this trial we are about to journey through. She wanted me to share the words that have encouraged her heart from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young:
It is not an easy road, but it is delightful and privileged way: a treasure hunt. I am the Treasure, and the Glory of My Presence glistens and shimmers along the way. Hardships are part of the journey too. I mete them out ever so carefully, in just the right dosage, with a tenderness you can hardly imagine. Do not recoil from afflictions, since they are among My most favored gifts. Trust Me and do not be afraid, for I am your Strength and Song.
Please join us in keeping mom lifted in prayer. Her first chemotherapy treatment is Thursday, February 11th. My sisters and I will keep this page current as best as we can.
So thankful for this surrounding of friends and family that the Lord has provided to help carry us through this time. Thank you all in advance for your continued prayers and support.
