Our Joined Hands

We made the decision to be Artists, in spite of the many challenges, gladly.  We have lived, sacrificed in the name of art with few regrets.  But sickness doesn't respect art or artists.  This group is to help inform you of those of us who are facing very difficult days due to a major illness and provide an easy way for us to join hands to help them.  Our Joined Hands can make a difference.

Michael, I will be and am praying for you.  I sit here writing to you while my mother is having one her proton therapy treatments for brain cancer.  She has done great and I have seen in her life miracles.  I expect God will allow us to see miracles in your life as well.  Remember our "not expected moments" are never surprises to God.  Hold to His unchanging hand.  Much lov.

Praying for Michael daily, knowing that he's in God's loving hands. What a privilege to know him better through the BibleTelling training. Michael, you are a fantastic person!

No one stands alone, but when times are tough we feel alone.  That is when we need to share our story and in so doing, the burden is not too heavy to carry. 

Don  Leonard, the storyteller with a big heart,  left us last week.  He just suffered too much and held on to life for so long.  His stories will be missed, but most of all his devotion to people will continue through the stories he left implanted on our hearts.  The celebration of life will be next Jan. 12 in Ocala Florida.
