Please Pray for My Blogging Friend Kerrie and Her Husband, Bill
I don't often do this, but after reading Kerrie's update on her husband Bill's website at Caring Bridge .org http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/billmarquart, I thought today it was time to start.
You see..Kerrie's husband Bill has cancer. You can read more about his journey and hers on her profile at Two Happy.
Bill is an amazing artist (paints and carves) and is an avid fishermen. He's also a much adored and beloved husband. And he's a very brave man.
Kerrie has been helping him through the ordeal of fighting cancer for several years now. Today was a rough day for them both. I know how that feels to some degree..though it was my father not my husband.
How my heart aches for her and for Bill. He's fighting so valiantly..and she is hurting with the pain of knowing her hubby is hurting.
It's a very lonely journey...and overwhelming sometimes to try to care for someone you love in that position. I wrote about some of my journey with Dad at the very beginning of this blog.
Two Happy, and this time, I'd like to ask all of you to pray for her and Bill.
If you have a minute, will you join me in asking for the Lord's grace, strength, joy and peace for them.
Please touch them both in a special way right now. Send your ministering angels to comfort Kerrie and lift her up so she can keep going. Fill her heart with peace that passes all understanding. Help her to know that you have not abandoned her but are right there watching over them both. (I know she knows that..but sometimes it can feel that way.)
Bring comfort and relief to Bill from the pain and exhaustion. Strengthen his body... calm the rash...hold him close.
In Christ's name we pray... Amen.
We love you Kerrie..and are praying for you and Bill.
