Another Prayer Request

Hi all -- looking over my blog history, there have been many times I've come to you all with prayer requests, and tonight is no different. I'm so thankful there are so many prayer warriors out there!

My cousin Angela in California is a wife and mother to four children. She's a year younger than me, and she just found out she has cancer of the eye. She and her husband Glen are on their way to San Francisco for an emergency surgery. With permission to share with you all, here is the information her father sent:

"Angela had a small growth an her eye under the pupil for a long time when I say small, small like a small muster seed or a grain of sand probably over a year or so. It never caused any pain or discomfort or vision problems, it has been growing since then but mostly towards the inside
where it was not seen. When she went to her eye doctor for a check up immediately the doctor picked up her phone and made an appointment with specialist in SanFrancisco, for further observation. She has what is known to be Ocular cancer, all that means cancer to the eye.
With more examinations that she had yesterday, it appears that the cancer is local only to the eye. We will know more after the surgery; that is, if it is not in our God’s will to heal her before that."

I cannot imagine what is going on in Angela's head right now, but I know that she is a child of God and is relying on Him for comfort and healing. Please pray that God's will be done and for strength, comfort, and peace for Glen, Ang, and their family.

Praying for Angela and for you. Jesus is the Great Physician, who can heal diseases. I hope you both find comfort in the fact that the one who created you is the one who heals. Love you!

Thanks! We were singing "Praise Him, Praise Him" today at home, and I asked the kids, "What is God?" (correct answer this time SHOULD have been "love") -- Susanna said, "A doctor!"

We're also praying for Ang! We had a friend w/two little boys go through the same thing many years ago. He was a blessing to us all as he recognized and confessed God's love and care for him. I pray that Ang will be doing the same!
