Hope Sugar Cookie | Prayer Request

I have had a hard time gathering my thoughts around the news that I am about to share, but I know I must to ask you to please pray. Writing it out makes it seem all the more real, and frankly it is something that I very badly do not want to believe is true. Last week I got a phone call,  it was my oldest sister, Jolene, on the other line and she asked if it was a good time. She said that she had bad news and asked if I was able to talk.

On our phone call I discovered that my sister has been diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer. I didn’t know what to say, I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t want to believe it. This couldn’t be happening to her.

I think as a family we are all still in shock, but we know that we need to stick together, be present and positive throughout every step. There are a lot of unknowns, but what we do know is that she is not going to fight this battle alone. I also know that we have a God that is good and a God that heals. When you think of her, please pray.

Some prayers that have been on my heart:

• The ability to be positive. Asking God to show peace and surround Jolene with positive people and positive thoughts. Our minds can easily wander, we can hear negative things, I ask that there is no dwelling on the negative but through each step recognizing the positive.

• Appointments to be schedule. This past week and a bit has been a lot of waiting, we pray that appointments will line up and that the people that are on the other end of the appointments are pleasant and helpful for each following step.

• Complete Healing. The type of cancer that was found is not easily treatable. I believe fully that our God heals and I pray for a complete healing over Jolene.

If any of you have positive words or prayers that you would like to directly share with my sister, please email them to me [creativewifeandjoyfulworker@gmail.com] and I would gladly pass them on to her. We appreciate your prayers and support at this time. Thank you.

  • I’ve worn these shoes everyday since surgery, three cheers for not having to bend over to put shoes and socks on. James calls them my “grandma shoes” I call them “awesome”.

  • Evelyn got the honours of putting the star on the tree today, she got it on her first try. 🌟
  • Six years ago James proposed to me after spending the night together at @vandusengarden Festival of Lights. I can't even believe that six years has gone by since we were sipping Apple Cider and walking the pathways with two year old Ezra by our sides. Now, six years later we enjoyed a night at #vandusenfol again, just with a couple more kids by our side. We bundled up, enjoyed mini donuts and hot chocolate, met up with friends and enjoyed multiple rides on the carousel. It's events like this that make the holidays magical and memorable for kids and adults. Swipe right to see images from our night out last week. #ad

  • Home from the hospital and feeling good (a bit loopy) but overall good. Surgery went well, and I’m home to recover. Thankful for all the messages and prayers today, and for my family for all their support.
