Grant

I promised in an email that I sent out to my prayer warrior friends that I'd post Grant updates here. I'm not really in the know, but what I do know is that he was officially diagnosed with ALL Leukemia. Today starts his treatment with a port, which has a high success rate with few complications. Please pray for his mom & dad (Amy...and I don't know his dad's name, we've never met). Also, his grandma is Susan. Amy & Susan both work for the PRC.

The PRC is also under more attack, as we've heard just a bit ago that two men with close relatives who work for the PRC have lost their jobs.

The last few days have been full of bad news: a church split with much pain, adultery, marital strife, the tragic death of a local special needs child, a drunk driver hit a friend's mother, children of our good friends were just given a scary diagnosis, toxic work environments with no escape in sight, Grant's diagnosis...

I really wanted to share something wise about how to handle life when it gets this hard. None of these things are happening to our family, just all around us...yet I've been tense in my shoulders and head since Monday. All I know is that we need to keep our lives simple so we can stop our own agendas and help where we're needed, don't just offer to help but jump in, and have some pain reliever on hand!

Ugh. Times like these are hard. Hang in there, and may God continue to watch over you and your family and bless you so you can bless those around you.
