My heart is very heavy today.
One of my dearest friends found out this week that she has invasive metastatic breast cancer that has spread to several areas in her body, some of which are potentially life threatening.
This woman just graduated her youngest of four children from their home school. Her husband, an elder in our church, loves her, as do her children, her grandchild, and many others. She has another grandbaby due any time now.
She has been a friend of mine for many years. We have served our church side by side, raised our children together, taught and attended Bible studies together, held each other accountable, and encouraged each other through a large part of our adult lives.
