This is my sister & brother in law. Angela & Jason Mecham. They have 4 young kids. She has cancer for a 2nd time. It is in her brain. What I do know is there are 2 spots, one smaller than a baby marshmallow & the other about three times that. I don't really know a lot about what is going on, I will update that when I can talk more to the family. We just found out a couple days ago. We are doing a fast for any one that follows this on Sunday, she has surgery on Thursday. I will have an update about exactly what this battle is & what will be happening. Since Grandma passing & reading so many blogs on people with cancer it really lifts me up & I think it helps those that struggle to know they aren't the only ones out there. I HATE Cancer. It sucks & it hurts. Ang is a fighter just like anyone else who battles this monster. We love ya Ang!! #prayersforang These next few quotes were inspiring to me so I thought I'd share & inspire to! "I strongly suspect that if we saw all the difference even the tiniest of our prayers make,and all the people those little prayers were destined to affect, and all the consequences of those prayers down through the centuries, we would be so paralyzed with awe at the power of prayer that we would be unable to get up off our knees for the rest of our lives." ~Peter Kreeft,Professor of Philosophy, Boston College "In the hectic, pressure-filled schedules you face,I . . . know how easy it is to let prayer slip. Some of you hit the snooze button on your alarm clocks,thinking you can eke out just another minute or two of sleep,then jerk awake realizing that you are going to be late for school or work. On such mornings,prayer gets pushed aside,perhaps with a feeble promise to yourself that you will do better tomorrow. Put the alarm clock where you can't reach it from bed; that will solve this problem. Sometimes you return home late at night,exhausted and eager to collapse into bed. You may go through the motions of prayer in a perfunctory and superficial manner,but that is not the kind of prayer that helps us conquer Satan. "I know many of you live in apartments where you have four or five roommates. The television or stereo may be on day and night. People talk loudly enough that even in your bedroom you can hear them clearly. There is laughter,noise, interruptions. In such circumstances it is a challenge to find a time and a place where you can be alone with your Heavenly Father. The Savior spoke of entering our closets to pray (see Matthew 6:6),suggesting the importance of privacy and quiet when we talk with God. For most of you, your closets will not allow this to happen,so you need to find a time and place where you can be alone with the Lord and pour out your heart to Him,that you might add strength and power to your spiritual lives." M. Russell Ballard, "Be Strong in the Lord, and in the Power of His Might" (CES fireside for young adults, March 3, 2002), 2–3 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding". “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths". (Proverbs 3:5-6)
