Our Zoom Zoom


There are times in life that everything stops - time passes but life remains still.

We had some difficult news this past week. News that someone so close to our hearts has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. She is a women of strength, beauty, and laughter - she has an amazing way of bringing life to a room, smiles to ones face, and love to so many. Christine "Zoom" is not only Jared's godmother, but she is a friend, an aunt, a cousin, a daughter, and an "adopted" Grandma to our family. I'm writing this blog today in order to surround her with prayer. She means so much to so many and I know this is a time that our God is greater than this disease. I've seen miracles. I've seen healing. I've seen the way prayer can impact a situation. Please pray that as Zoom enters this long journey, that she is surrounded with care, wisdom, and most of love.

We love you Zoom! Let's beat this!

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand ~ Isaiah 41:10

Oh Sam- I am so sorry to hear that.
I will lift her up in prayer, and ask for strength for her and your family to get through this time.
A cure will come one day.
Until then-
we hope, we pray, and we continue to live.
God Bless,
Megs

Oh Sam! My heart is heavy as I read about Zoom! I have many fond memories of her from Jared's graduation to your wedding - she does have a ywonderful way about her. We will definitely surround her with prayer and also pray for Jared as he hears such difficult news being so far away. Our thoughts are with all of you and hope that she beats this. Please continue to keep us informed as Zoom goes through journey.

Love,
Alison
