Please Pray!

I have a special post today.  We found out over the weekend that our grandmother has been diagnosed with cancer and is going in for surgery in a week.  If you are the praying type I'd ask that you include her in your prayers.  Her name is Dorothy and she can use all the prayers she can get.  She is a strong and courageous woman and always carries her head high and she will through this too.  She worked two and sometimes three jobs as she raised her 5 children, one of which was handicapped.  She lost her husband, our grandfather, several years back.  She still gets out and walks everyday, does aerobics and volunteers for anything she can get her hands on.  She's headstrong and proud and we love her!  Because of her I have my husband and family today. 

I've made this card to send to her in hopes that it brightens up her day and reminds her how much she is loved.  The inside reads "In the ever-changing circumstances of life, there is a faithful never changing God in control."
