Girls Write Out
Friday, November 02, 2012
Girls, would you please pray for our beloved Diann this weekend? She's not doing well physically, and last I heard she was very ill in the emergency department, asking for prayer. I've seen her struggle, not only with lymphoma, which has returned after several years, but also with this latest ovarian cancer that has been aggressive and ugly beyond belief. Diann has turned everything over to Jesus and she's growing spiritually in a way that not only reveals her faith more dynamically, but also supports my faith and that of many others. If you hadn't already seen it, she began a blog in which she shares passages from the Bible and her own words of wisdom that are powerful and beautiful, just like she is.

So pray for Diann as you've never prayed before. As Jan Karon writes in many of her novels, pray the prayer that God always answers--that His will be done. We want her here with us. She has children and grandchildren, a loving husband and many, many loving friends, and she lifts us up and shares her grace with us. We feel we need her here. But we don't want her suffering like this. Let God reign.

Praying for Diann... and her family and friends, too! I fall back on that quote from Jan many times! So true!

I will continue praying.
I know we don't know each other, Diann, but I enjoy your stories so much, and my heart goes out to you. You girls all have such a great ministry, and I admire how you're always there for each other.
Keep being strong!

I'm so sorry to hear that Diann is suffering. Praying for God's grace and mercy upon her. It is so hard to see our loved ones suffer, praying for you as well. ♥

Bless you, girls, for your wonderful prayers. Yes, do also pray for Colleen, because Di is like a sister to her--actually, we GWO girls are like family when we get together. But if Di can start feeling better and whip these monsters attacking her, that will help us all so much.
