This sweet little girl, Lucy, needs your prayers today. I have been following her mom's blog (which I stole this picture from) for over a year. You see in February 2011 sweet Lucy was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer. Her mother has documented the family's triumphs and struggles, and people from across the world have been praying for this sweet child.
Yesterday they received some devastating news that Lucy's time here on Earth is limited. Soon she will be in the arms of Jesus.
When I read that this morning I cried like a baby. I cried for this baby. I cried for all the babies who have ever and will ever walk this road. I cried for all the mommas who have stood where Lucy's mom is standing now. I cried because nothing we can say or do will take away the pain this family is enduring. Then I cried to our Heavenly Father, because He is the only one big enough for all these tears.
Please join me today in crying out to HIM on behalf of Erik, Kate, Ella, Lucy and Jack. May the peace of God fall upon them today.
