Definitely will keep your daughter and her husband in my prayers. Life can be so cruel sometimes, but God is good all the time.

Oh Becky. This is one of those times where you have to ask yourself WHAT was God thinking when he gave your daughter and son-in-law THIS to handle!?!? There are just no good answers. Instead, I will say that this is when faith steps in and pushes you all along while you are in auto-drive. Have been there on too many occassions. It's amazing how we rise to the occassion when our backs are to the wall. And I have no doubt that your daughe and son-in-law will show strength beyond anything anyone ever imagined. Have faith. But in the meantime...I will definetely keep your whole family in my thoughts and prayers. Blessings to you all.

It's my first visit to your blog. I'm so sorry about your sad news.

Kathy said...

Oh, my gosh, Becky. My heart and prayers are with you.

Wayne said...

Wow Becky, I'm so sorry to hear this. We'll all be praying for them both.

That is horrible news. I have already prayed and I will continue praying for them and you.

Not long after I joined the Navy and got married, my wife was diagnosed with cancer. We were both in our early 20s and it was incredibly scary. Thankfully she was cured.

Philippians 4:6-7
"6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
