Prayers for Sarah

Some things are just weighing heavily on my mind lately, especially after reading a blog that I’ve been visiting for several years.

Sarah at Spruce Hill is a courageous woman who has been fighting breast cancer for some time now. Her latest scan shows that it has entered her brain.

She has always been such an upbeat and personable woman who loves her family, her animals, and her life on Spruce Hill.

And her talent as a photographer ain’t too shabby either.

Maybe if we all just stopped what we were doing for a moment and said one prayer for Sarah today, it would make a difference.

That was me that deleted the comment. I was trying to close them for this post but got confused.

I'd rather you visited Sarah today. God knows she could use the love.

I read her blog too & I am so sad. Prayers being said.

I will head to her blog and say a prayer. And what a dear friend she has in you to put out the request! Prayer does make a difference. Not always in the ways we are expecting but it always does. But sometimes it is in the way we expect! And I'll say a prayer for you, too, her friend who cares enough to pray and seek out more prayer.....

I'm at a loss for words,but, a prayer for Sarah is not asking too much.

Hilary said...

I have also been thinking of her all evening. It is just so unfair. I will be praying for her. She is such a beautiful person.

Heading over to Spruce Hill right now to say "Hello, Sarah;
strangers you never met

Just heart breaking. I'll head over. I love her pictures. Interesting, as I typed in your site, I was hoping you posted today. I was really hoping for some up lifting photos. Instead we are called to lift up.

I was there last night and my heart was breaking. Sometimes life is horribly unfair. Other woman really need to rally around Sarah right now. What her family must be going through, I cannot image.

Prayers for Sarah from Connecticut...

I have always loved Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

I pray there will come a day soon when all the sickness, tears, pain that we experience in life will be gone and there will be nothing but peace and wonderful health. When the lord comes, it will be like that. I pray for Sarah and her family for the lord to lift their spirits and keep them strong in their faith.

Sarah said...

Too many of these things are happening to my friends this year. I will keep your friend, Sarah in my thoughts and prayers.

Kate, thanks so much for sharing Sarah's story on your blog. She's my sister-in-law and I know she truly appreciates all the support she is receiving. I have been a follower of your blog for a while now too. I saw a few comments on Sprucehill that came via your blog and just wanted to thank you for doing this. Many words of inspiration are a big help right now.
