STRONGER THAN I LOOK
I don't remember when I started following Sarah Brewer's blog, StrongerthanIlook.com.
What I do remember is the ache I felt in my heart for Sarah and her young son Ben for all he was going through. He was sick. He was very sick. The following is from Sarah's blog.
Ben, was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, Stage IV, at the age of 2 1/2, my world fell apart. Unfortunately, I had to keep my exterior from deteriorating because not only did I have a very sick little boy to care for but I had a brand new baby, Madeline, who was born six weeks after Ben’s initial diagnosis.
Reading through her posts, Sarah has brought me to tears. However, she has also made me laugh.
Please go to this blog, follow her posts and let her know you are praying for them too.
You are probably thinking why?
Today, I read the post she wrote. "Ben is cancer free."
After reading a few weeks ago about how this little guy threw up the dye used for the MRI and it had to be rescheduled, I can only say, Thank you Lord for answered prayers. Ben has been in my prayer journal for weeks. I have prayed everyday for complete healing. God heard our prayers. And for now, Ben is healed.
I've prayed that Ben would dress up in a costume or carve a pumpkin.
I hope Sarah lets us know if that happens.
God Bless you Sarah for being the kind of Mother you are. One who cares so deeply for your son and your daughter. And just for the record, I believe you are Stronger than you Look.
