She may be forty-two years old and have three young children, but she will always be my baby sister. After all, I can remember seeing her in the hospital when she was born and holding her when she came home. I wish I would have taken the time to hold her while we were growing up, but with three older brothers she probably just got picked on a lot. Now she is on the other side of the world in Australia, and I can’t hold her no matter how much I desire.
Two weeks ago Margaret was driving and became confused about where she was and the basic meaning of things like traffic lights. A few hours later, while her husband was driving her to the hospital, she had a seizure. Tests revealed a mass on her brain, and surgery confirmed our worst fears: an advanced stage of glioma brain cancer. She will begin radiation treatment within two weeks, but this cancer is very difficult to stop.
Would you please join me in prayer. I haven’t been able to think of anything else since receiving the news. We need a miracle! If you pray, would you be so kind as to send my sister a note letting her know you are praying. There is no need to write more than a single line, but I know she would be blessed by knowing you are praying and where you are from. It’s probably best that I don’t give out her email address but if you reply to this message I will forward the note to her.
There are many things in life which are difficult to understand; this one will take some time to process. Thanks for walking with me on this journey of faith. Give someone a hug today, and thanks for taking the time to pray for my baby sister.
Have a Christ Centered Day!
