Came to you off of Country Girl Kate's site..... will pray. My 4 y/o is becoming quite the prayer warrior (pretty cool to watch) and we'll put you in our prayer jar. May God continue to be with you!


Dear Sarah;
Today I'm grateful to join you here, and to stand with YOU.

Please know that folks you never met, really do care and feel with you in your present struggle.

Words can be vile things when we spread them too thick, so I will just send you my sincere healing intentions with Warm Aloha from Waikiki.

I WILL be back here to see what you are up to-

oh Sarah I am so sorry to read this! I wish you Godspeed as you start this new phase of treatment.




God holds you tenderly in his hands - ya gotta believe it even though life hands you crappy news. We (you & I) don't know one another, yet I sense a connection. Breast Cancer has loomed large in my immediate family. First, my Mom, now, my 53 year old sister who last week learned of her recurrence. Thank you for sharing your journey; your strength is enviable. Will be keeping you & your beautiful family in my prayers.

Sarah: I am praying and thinking of you often. I have a group of prayer warriors I am going to ask to pray for you and your family. Their prayer has done amazing things for so many faced with serious illness. I wish I lived closer and could physically help you with whatever you might need. Know so many care about you.
Psalm 103:1-4
Praise the LORD, O my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.

Praise the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-

who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,

who redeems your life from destruction,
who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies.


Dear Sarah,
First of all, you and my daughter share the same's beautiful and means princess! I came across your story from Kate over at Chronicles of a Country broke my heart to hear how life has delt you an unfair hand and then I came here and saw your beautiful gift of photography as well and find myself asking why does this happen to good people? Of course I'll never get an answer to that, but I hope and pray that you will get an answer of hope, a miracle...a new chance. We'll probably never meet, but please know that I'm thinking of you here in my home in Norway and praying for strong and be positive...
Warm hugs from Amy at Eventyrhus
