Spiritual Sundays

I have shared my L♥VE of this Blogging Community and ALL the blessings myself and my family have received from soo many of you! Last May when my Dad was first diagnosed with lung cancer, my friend Edie, made him a prayer button and this was just the beginning of my heart bonding with so many of you as well as it speaking the depths of my Dads heart. The thing was ~ I never even asked Edie to do this! She just did it ~ because well, she's loving that way and shares her gift with so many and glorifies the Lord by doing this.

Galatians 6:2 tells us:

Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.

I experienced this Scripture through so many of you all! Walking along side of me, praying for Dad, sending notes of encouragement to him along with your prayers! We all rejoiced when Daddy shared of his acceptance of Jesus and we all knew he would be in Eternity face to face with his Savior if the day came ~ it did. Thank you all, you shared in mine and my Dads burdens! You obeyed the law of Christ!!

Well, now I am going to introduce you all to someone else and share their prayer button with you. I shared a little bit of Johns story in a previous post. John Buck is a Husband, Father, Son and dear friend to many, just to name a few! He was diagnosed in December with Stage 3 Head/neck cancer. He began treatment at MD Anderson and finished his final round of treatment on Friday February 12. When treatment is completed at MD Anderson you get to "ring a bell" Well, John's wife Jenny made a video of this final treatment and just before John rang the bell, they passed out a picture to others and he also held it up to the camera. This picture is of MY DAD! I shared in the post mentioned above that my brother asked my Dad in the days just before he died to be with John, to help him through this cancer battle. John and Jenny have clearly seen the evidence that Dad is fulfilling that request! My brother is in the process of doing a fund raiser for the Buck Family. To say this video touched me is an UNDERSTATEMENT.....This video is a gift.....a precious gift.

**NOTE: I am sorry I had initially set this to private but it is changed now and everyone should be able to view apologies! Sunday @ 1:40 p.m.

I chose to share this post on Spiritual Sunday because I know so many come and visit, because this is a blog in which we are able to share the burdens of others! Thank you all sooo much for adding John and his family to your prayer list. Thank you for praying for a complete healing for John! Here is Johns prayer button and code if you all would like to add it to your blogs

Pray for John

Next Sunday is the Fund Raiser for his family! I simply CANNOT WAIT to see what God has in store!

It doesn't allow us to view the video and says we must be a friend to accept the video. I can only imagine just how priceless this is because I know how much you went through with your father.

One can only imagine how much love went into this and I continue to pray that God pours out His grace and love for this family. They are so deserving of a miracle!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat


Loren, I will pray for John and his family. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. Wish I could watch the video. It says it is private.


I will be praying!! I'm so glad you are spreading the request--I really believe that God can use the "blog land" very powerfully for His kingdom when we all unite to pray for the needs of others!

He & Me + 3

I will pray for John. Loren the video came up private so i was not able to view it. :(


Loren, I could not get the video to work but I can just imagine how this must have thrilled your heart and touched your spirit. I will check back tomorrow to see if I can get it to work. I will definitely keep this man in prayer. There is just soo many who need our prayers, and as Christians you are soo right, our privilege to lift one another up. Have a wonderful Sunday. Hugs, Debbie


I am praying for this dear one, and his family sis. I love you, putting his button on my blog.


it wouldn't let me watch the video but I'm going to add the prayer button to my site. Sarah

Praying for your friend. My husband has been fighting Colon Cancer since 2005, so I know all too well what the patient goes through and the stress that causes for loved ones. Have a blessed Spiritual Sunday!


Well, it's probably because I'm not too sharp, but I can't get the video to play. I'll come back later and try again.

WOW! That was amazing to watch! Thanks for sharing this special moment with us all!


Thank you, Loren, for sharing this with us. I already went over to my blog and put the button on the sidebar. I added the extension on the url so it comes just to this post. I know how proud you were of your Dad and the video is great. Clif came in while I was watching it and said he couldn't see it. Then we saw where you had fixed it.
Love and blessings,


Wow, what a neat video! Thanks for sharing his story.

What a touching, inspiring video. I just started crying when they handed out your dad's picture. Praying for John right now...


Sassy Granny ...

To think that God holds every single prayer - past, present & future - in a bowl in front of Him (Rev 5) is yet more reason to storm heaven on behalf each other. What a blessing you are to John; and to us (aka me).



I am lifting everyone up in prayer. God bless.


I am in tears of joy after watching this beautiful video! Thanks for sharing and prayers for this strong family!!


I'm glad I came back. This was a very touching video. Thank you for sharing this.


I am so glad it is working now... it was precious! Oh my goodness... I am cryin' like a baby! What a beautiful video. Your dad is right there with him!
Love & Blessings,

I bet it is a wonderful video! I have people I love that are fighting cancer as well. I will be praying for John as well. ~


I don't easily cry sister Loren but this video brought tears to my eyes. Remembering my own father who died from colon cancer and bro. Doug, your precious father. And many others who are struck with this awful disease. I pray for the Lord's healing to come down on bro. John and may His peace, strength and comfort shower on him and his family.
Life is indeed precious and to be able to pray for one another, to me, that is an act of love, especially if you're lifting up someone that is not related to you. But it pleases the One Who desires for us to love others. In spiritual reality, we all belong to His family. God bless.


WOW! I could not see the video very well because of all the tears in my eyes. I will be praying for John and his family. I safe the button so I will add it to my blog.
God Bless,

Oh Loren, I was overwhelmed as I watched this with flowing tears. The hope in him was evident!! I will be lifting him up in prayer today. Thanks for sharing this.


Hi Loren,
My husband is a friend of John's. My husband was trying to view this video and couldn't get it to work. He asked me to try and I can't get it to work either. It it indicating that the "movie is not loaded". We both have flashplayer10 and haven't had any luck. Any advice?
We would also like to thank you and your husband for the tremendous support you've provided to the Buck family!


Very, very touching!! I love that place and those people who give their lives in work to be hope and healing to so many! I will continue to pray for John Buck's day at a time.

Can't wait until it's my turn to ring that bell!!
