Go Relay!!



This link will take you to the site, then find Little Brother or my name. SORRY I HAD THE WRONG ONE LAST TIME!!! I am not computer savvy...

Ok, this may be cheesy, but I am so close to my goal of raising $1,000 by this coming Saturday!!
(Tonight at this very moment, I am at $720!!!!!!!)

This Saturday, July 18th, I am walking for the Relay for Life sponsored by the American Cancer Society. My team's name is Little Brother, in honor of my brother, who took his last breath here on earth, on June 19th, 2009..I am praying I can walk 45 laps, one for each year of Steve's life.

In the picture above, he had just given me the shirt I am wearing. Last summer. At our family reunion. He had completed a Relay in his area. I can still feel him standing beside me....I was so touched he got me a shirt just like his. My God is a healing balm for me-- but right now, it feels like a balm being applied to a open wound..it hurts!!!!

Part of my pain is being so far away from my sister n law and my nephews. So I guess in a weird way, this walk has pushed me back into the thick of things. I will be remembering many, many things as I walk. I will be praying too, for the boys, and Amy and my Mom.

Thank you so much to all of you incredible people who have given, money you could've used for something else...I am very, very blessed and humbled mightily..

More details of my life later...it has been a tough week.

He is faithful,

Not cheesy at all!!! Just 100% love! I tried the link and it asks for a username and password. I tried entering your name for those and it didn't work. Is it too late to give a pledge?

Prayin' for ya, dear one!!

Following you along, even though I haven't taken time to tell you so. Prayinging that you are feeling strong physically, and that you are ready for your big walk tomorrow. My heart aches knowing that your heart aches for your purple shirted little brother. May each step you take in Steve's memory bring healing to your broken heart, and may the Lord bless you every step of the way with strength, and with His perfect peace.

Love you friend,
