Sweet Shot Tuesday

Relay

 

There could be no sweeter shot for me, then to see my son, Jordan, as he took his “Survivors Lap” this past Saturday at the 2010 Relay for Life!  He is a brain tumor survivor. He was dx at the age of 16. 

It’s been a long journey that I never dreamed we would take, but one that has changed our lives for the better. 

Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.

(I Thes 5:18)

Join us today over at My Life With My 3 Boybarians for more sweet shots!

LOVE the photo! Thank you, Lord!
Praying right now!
Isaiah 30:18-19 And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him. For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.

What a sweet shot that is! I loved having Jordan there, and we all loved cheering for him as he made that Survivor's Lap!

We love you, Jordan!

This is incredible!

Do you read Donna Boucher's blog? I think she would love to see this photo; it would encourage her. Her sister just died last month from a brain tumor and she and her family walked in support of her family.
