Definition of MIRACLE:
an extraordinary event manifesting divine
intervention in human affairs*
Skipper Scott and me sailing on the Columbia River last summer.
Do you believe in miracles? I do.
Many of you know that I received news two weeks ago today that my oldest friend from childhood, Scott, was diagnosed with colon cancer that has metastasized in his liver. Scott and I grew up across the street from each other and are like brother and sister. We met when we were 2 years old, the age of his youngest son, Zane.
In the two short - yet seemingly long - weeks since Scott's diagnosis I have experienced a roller coaster of emotions. But the one that is carrying me through is HOPE that there will be a miracle and Scott will be healed. Of course he is getting the best treatment possible for his type of cancer (at MD Anderson in Houston) but his family and friends are joining together and praying very specifically for:
a complete miraculous healing through divine intervention.
Regardless of your religious beliefs, I ask you to join us in praying for a miracle for Scott.
If you feel led, please read this beautiful prayer that a parishioner at our church wrote for Scott:
