Special Request

I’m not prone to linking out or asking you to pray specifically, but, well, I find this of special importance. I’ve mentioned a few times in my blog a girl by the name of Stephanie Vasofsky. I don’t know her. I don’t actually even know anyone who knows her. But I overheard a friend one night at bunko last spring mention a blog post she had read on another friends blog about a girl (Stephanie) … and so the search began to find out who she was and what her story entailed.  

I have read it nearly daily since I found it and I just feel like she and her family could really use some special prayers. She is 28. A wife and a mother of a sweet 2-year old named Zoe. A daughter, a sister, a friend, and from what I gather, she was also a teacher. She is every one of us, and I think that is why I am so captivated by her story. She has cervical cancer and is under Hospice care at home. From what I gather, she is in great need of physical comfort as she is in pain and is very uncomfortable in bed. You can click the link at right in my blogroll to see her Caring Bridge site for the latest update from her family. 

Girls, it’s almost a new year…don’t forget to go to your ‘girly doctor’ and get a checkup.
