Please Pray...

Tonight I am going to take a break from my streak of Christmas posts, because I just can't focus on anything but this family right now...

These are our friends, the Johnson's.  Andrew spent his days with them last year when I was working part time.  You may remember Andrew's precious little friend, Ava.  She is also a heart child who has had 3 open heart surgeries.  You can go back to this post to read more about Andrew and Ava's adventures.

Josiah (Ava's daddy) was diagnosed with sarcoma in the spring, and has just spent his last Christmas with his family.  They moved him to hospice the day after Christmas.

Please join me in praying for them.  I cannot begin to imagine what they are going through.  I know they would appreciate any support and encouragement.  Please leave them a message letting them know you are praying for them.  Thank you.

Oh Jen! I haven't visited their blog in quite some time. I am so sorry to hear that he has been moved to Hospice.

Praying for them during this time!

We are sending out prayers like crazy! We saw Ava and Jessica at the Heart Christmas Party... and I am pretty sure the Ava could not be ANY cuter! My heart goes out to all of them...

Jen-
I too have been having a hard time focusing on anything except praying for the Johnson family. My heart continues to break for them. I know that they are a very strong family, roots planted firmly in God's soil, but it seems that it is almost too much for one family to bear. Thank-you for posting this and know that I am sending up many, many prayers for them.

Love,
Chris Reinhard
