An Added Blessing

I've talked about blessings that have come from this cancer before, but I wanted to share a special gift that God gave me this week.

Last week I entered a contest to meet Laura Story, the singer of the song "Blessings".  I entered the contest, yes because I was hoping to get the chance, but more because I wanted to share my story with others how God really does bless you through trials and tears.

On Monday, July 29, 2013, the radio station called me telling me that I had won!  I couldn't believe it!  So on Wednesday, July 31, 2013, I get to be with a small group of people who meet Laura Story and get to see her concert live.  What a chance God has given me!  I found out that there will be others there who are struggling with cancer right now.  I'm so thankful God has given me the chance to witness to them.  Please pray with me that God uses me in an amazing way that only He can.

And, if you want to watch this live, you can through this link:

I don't know if I will be on screen or not, but my daughter and I will be there.

To God be the  Glory!


  1. I know I've said this before, but holy moly you remind me so much of my mother. Her favorite songs were "My Life Flows On In Endless Song," "Give Me Jesus" and "Bow the Knee." Every day at 1p the local Christian radio station would start taking dedications and she would literally wait by the clock for it to be 1p so she could call in and request "Bow the Knee." A couple of times her song was played first. :) Have a great time at the concert!!

    1. Thanks, Janine. That makes me smile. I miss my mom, too. Someday we will get to see them again.
