In Genesis, Eve is called "the mother of all living. " I believe that means every woman is a mother, because every woman brings life to the world in some way. We encourage. We feed bellies and hearts. We nurture hopes. We create beauty. We birth dreams. And yes, some of us also have physical children. But that's not the only way to bring life into this world — it's one of many.
Last week I sat in a dark auditorium and watched my daughter and four of her friends perform a one act play that she had written. I always cry when any of my kids performs, whether it’s singing in the choir, acting in a play, or chasing a ball in sports. I just can’t keep the tears at bay when I watch my kids doing their thing. But this day the tears streaking down my face were from more than just pride, my heart was breaking. The play is titled “Not for the Perfect” and it’s the story of a picture perfect family that was anything but. It's the story of parents and kids who were trapped in a cycle of abuse, addiction, and abandonment. It was a hard story to watch. Harder still knowing that my daughter and her friends used stories from their own real lives as inspiration for the play.

A couple of weeks ago, we found a lump on our 2-yr old son. Last week, the doctors scheduled him for surgery to have it removed and that most likely it was not a solid mass because of its rapid growth. The surgeon removed it on Monday and informed us that it was a solid mass and it was being sent to pathology to see if it was cancerous. It immediately crushed us, but God started working on our faith immediately through scripture, family, friends, and KLRC. The same songs that we've been listening to for years had a brand new meaning. Every song felt hand selected specifically for us. We had hundreds of people praying for our son, and we just got news that the pathology report showed no cancer and it was an infection. The surgeon said that he's never seen that before and that some things can't be explained. We can explain it.

I have been looking for a new job for a while now. I am asking for prayers to help me find the right job with enough pay that my family can pay off our debts and be able to buy a house. I have a steady job now but it won't be her for too much longer.

Please pray for me and my family. I am looking for restoration of my marriage. We have been divorced since thanksgiving and I believe God still wants us together. We encourage small boys whom we love dearly. I desperately need prayers to sustain me as I wait, and to bring us back together. She needs prayers as well for health reasons. Thank you for all your prayers.
