We're praying for you and your family as you walk this road. May you feel God's peace and the love of those around you.

There are no words today, but prayers and tears and the hope that comes in Christ. In my mind I see Jesus with his arms open wide and Loren nestled there. I pray that those same arms of love wrap tightly around all of you in these hours and days. All of my love to you and prayers for peace and comfort, for all of you.

It is Tuesday evening, around 9:10pm. It is raining, the sky is dark, and I see a glimpse of the bright sun on the very green tree across the street from our place on Noble. Then I look on our side of the street up to the sky, and there is a beautiful, brilliant rainbow. I run in, get my kids out of bed (since they're still both awake!), and we run into the rain to see the rainbow together. Ben says, "That is so beautiful." And I say to both of them, "Maybe Loren is seeing God...maybe God is welcoming Loren home."
May peace be with your whole family at this time.

I'm Bert & Adeline's sister, and I want to say how impressed I am by your faith and courage as you go through this. God is surely honoured and delighted by how you are doing on this journey. You are a great example to all of us.

My friends and I are praying for you regularly, wishing you quality of life for the full number of your days as ordained by God alone, and much courage, love and comfort. You are indeed surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses who are cheering you on to the finish line! Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, Loren and family.

Better than a Hallelujah (Amy Grant)

God loves a lullaby
In a mothers tears in the dead of night
Better than a Hallelujah sometimes.
God loves the drunkards cry,
The soldiers plea not to let him die
Better than a Hallelujah sometimes.

We pour out our miseries
God just hears a melody
Beautiful the mess we are
The honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a Hallelujah.

The woman holding on for life,
The dying man giving up the fight
Are better than a Hallelujah sometimes
The tears of shame for what's been done,
The silence when the words won't come
Are better than a Hallelujah sometimes.

We pour out our miseries
God just hears a melody
Beautiful the mess we are
The honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a Hallelujah

I love you, my friends.
I wish I could do more.

St. Patrick's Breastplate
Don't know the author

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through the belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness
Of the Creator of Creation.

I arise today
Through the strength of Christ's birth with his baptism,
Through the strength of his crucifixion with his burial,
Through the strength of his resurrection with his ascension,
Through the strength of his descent for the judgment of Doom.

I arise today
Through the strength of the love of Cherubim,
In obedience of angels,
In the service of archangels,
In hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
In prayers of patriarchs,
In predictions of prophets,
In preaching of apostles,
In faith of confessors,
In innocence of holy virgins,
In deeds of righteous men.

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven:
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock.

I arise today
Through God's strength to pilot me:
God's might to uphold me,
God's wisdom to guide me,
God's eye to look before me,
God's ear to hear me,
God's word to speak for me,
God's hand to guard me,
God's way to lie before me,
God's shield to protect me,
God's host to save me
From snares of devils,
From temptations of vices,
From everyone who shall wish me ill,
Afar and anear,
Alone and in multitude.

I summon today all these powers between me and those evils,
Against every cruel merciless power that may oppress my body and soul,
Against incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagandom
Against false laws of heretics,
Against the craft of idolatry,
Against spells of witches and smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man's body and soul.

Christ to shield me today
Against poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
So that there may come to me abundance of reward.
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness,
Of the Creator of Creation.

My dad had pancreatic cancer. What really impressed me as he struggled through was how he never complained. Not even on his death bed. I can grumble when having a cold. LOL But that is one thing that I take with me and want to learn from. Another thing that my dads death taught me is to tell people how much you love them and to say wonderful things about them and to them. Another thing my dad had been given a book to read called "When Your Doctor Has Bad News" by Al B. Weir M.D. It really encouraged him. So much so he read the book twice the only book my dad had ever read more then once was the bible. So I know this book had a major impact on him. May the Lord give you the strength to make it through what ever road He has laid out for you.

My heart is sorely heavy for you today. I wish there were some way to stop time, stop the illness, create a new and different reality. I wish there were more than watching and praying that we could do. I wish this burden had never befallen you. I am sorry for your pain, sorry for the fear, sorry for all the wounded darkness that this broken world holds.

May Father cup your face between his hands;
may the warmth of his breath
ease the chill
chase the shadows
comfort the longing limbs.

May Peace attend you,
May Trust hold tight your hand.
May Comfort find its way to your bed.

I am glad that you have been able to enjoy some traveling in the last few weeks, and that by all accounts, Brynlee's wedding went off without a hitch! Enjoy the good times. I know that some days having hope must be hard. Those are the times that we as friends will help to lift your arms up in the battle (remember Old Testament story?). I'm glad to hear that your faith does not falter - know that God walks with you He will never leave you or forsake you. We walked the Relay for Life for Cancer on Friday night, and we bought a luminary for you Loren, it said "fighting the fight!" and we know you will win. Take care. Love and prayers.
