Terminal Cancer

I can’t sleep. I’m having flashbacks of my trip to MD Anderson from last year. I just went back and read the blogs I wrote then (1/9/12) and can’t believe how upbeat I sounded compared to how I felt. The Lord really carried me through that awful time. I have thought a lot about it lately because, as I mentioned, my friend Alison went there … Continue reading Terminal Cancer

And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 That is Yaacov’s favorite “Christmas” verse. At Christmas, we celebrate the greatest gift God could give–His only son. He gave it freely to us, without even asking, despite … Continue reading Jennifer Litton!
