4 days to go

The countdown continues for Mom as she goes into the hospital every day. Only four more days and then we're hoping for a little break. Mom is very tired and discouraged by the length of the therapy. She found out this week that of all the treatments, hers is the longest at 6-7 months. She is able to keep up her positive attitude, Mom said "with all the good news we've been receiving (treatable leukemia, the 'normal' kind instead of the 'bad', etc.) there had to be something that wasn't positive." Please pray that Mom would be encouraged and have the strength she needs as she goes through this treatment. We walk in the promise that God will never bring us a trail that He will not also give us the strength to stand up under it. And we are grateful that you are walking with us. Thank you for your prayers, your notes of encouragement and the delicious meals that have been coming.



  1. Had a lovely visit today between your sleeps. You are a blessing to me. I love you Lorna Rande and I will be there for you as much or as little as you need me to be.

  2. Happy Mother's Day Lorna, you were a mom to your sisters when you should have just been a little girl. You were a mom to those you met along the way... in Bible School... neighbours... young women at church... and you are a mom to your beautiful girls and many more.
    May the Lord raise you up in His time to be stronger than ever... with even more authority and answers to your prayers! May the glory of the Lord shine upon your head for you have met Him by the cleft in the Rock. And may you be carried through these valleys on angels' wings. Much love, ingrid
