When Your Heart Hurts

My bff, Christina, is in need of major prayers.

A couple of months ago, I shared that her husband had been diagnosed with a recurrence of melanoma.

He’s currently in the hospital…his second visit within the last couple of weeks.

Things are looking very grim, and Christina texted me this evening to tell me that they are trying to get him home so they can call in hospice.

My heart is hurting for her precious family.

Allen, her husband, and I have had numerous conversations over the phone.

He’s a man who loves his family dearly.

I wish I was closer to her so I could something more tangible than pray.

She and I spoke on the phone earlier, and I cannot tell you how my heart hurt to hear her cry.

I shed some tears of my own, let me tell you, and I’m crying as I write this.

It’s so difficult to watch those you care about suffer.

I want to give her a hug.

For now, this will have to do…

Please pray for them.

Thanks, friends.
