Celebrating Together

This week, I am starting a new series on of my favorite topics, friendship. Each week, for the next several weeks, I will highlight a different group of friends in the hope that we can be both inspired and encouraged. These relationships are one vehicle God uses to reveal Himself in our good times and our struggles. I hope you enjoy meeting these lovely ladies (and gentlemen). This week, we meet Kathy and Lisa. Please read all the way to the end for a special prayer request.

We stayed a little after our normal mother's bible study at Marist School on a day that feels like just yesterday. She seemed like she was carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders and sharing her worries might lift some of her concern. Patiently, we listened to her concerns. After telling us about the tests and the waiting, we sat dumbstruck (which is saying a lot as we often talked over each other). How could it be that another member of our community was facing the possibility of an ALS diagnosis? The waiting was hard, but the confirmation of the diagnosis was even more difficult.
