What a week it's been....
1) My grandfather, Havey Koehn, passed away on Monday (see earlier post).
2) Marc's uncle, Ted Friesen, passed away the same day.
3) A man whom Marc and I don't feel should be running this country was inaugurated into office on Tuesday -- and then reinaugurated on Wednesday :) On Friday, this new President of our's signed an executive order to allow federal funding to go towards abortions abroad. It makes me sick to my stomach that our tax dollars are going towards abortions.
4) Our good friends from church, Joel and Jess, have a little girl named Cora (10 months old) who was diagnosed with cancer. This started on Thursday. By Friday afternoon, she was in surgery.
Here's a photo of little Miss Cora....PLEASE PRAY for her and her family.
The good news....
**I never knew where my grandfather was spiritually. According to his obituary, he did confess his faith in Jesus Christ on February 5, 1938. That means I'll see him again in heaven someday.
**Marc's Uncle Ted had been suffering for quite some time. His suffering is over, and he is now enjoying heaven.
**Even though we don't think we have a qualified person as President of the USA, we are thankful that we live in a country where we do get to vote for our leaders. We don't live under a dictator. We also know that Mr. Obama does have an extremely difficult job. We will definitely be praying for him as our leader.
**Little Miss Cora came out of surgery safely. Chemo will begin on Monday. We're thankful that we have a healthcare system that allows for "things" to move this quickly. I'm sure her cancer is fast growing. The sooner the chemo gets inside her little body, the sooner the cancer can hopefully go away.
Please pray with us for all of these things.
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. I Thessalonians 5:16-17
Joyful and a little silly
