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!
