Programming Break

Cari and I were in the same graduate program at the U, and we started blogging around the same time. I've had her on my blogroll forever, and I know a lot of people who read this blog also read hers.

For the last 14 months, Cari has battled an aggressive type of breast cancer that, in August of this year, metastasized to her brain. Now in October, the cancer is also in her spine.

I'm not particularly devout in my Christian faith, but Cari is in hers. When she asked for prayers for her and her family, I dusted off my old rosary beads and started offering those familiar and comforting prayers to the heavens.

Now Cari's situation is more serious than ever, and I think it would be good to get her some more prayers. I feel sort of sheepish asking this, but if you're at all inclined, if you prayed when you were little but haven't for awhile, if you're not sure it will work, if you just have thirty seconds - would you pray for Cari, her husband Melvin, and their three adorable kids?

You can read more about her here.

Okay, thanks.

I think my ideas about how prayer work may differ from Cari's, but it does seem as though having lots of people offering their own kind of support is a positive effort. So count me in!

I don't know how to correct the last comment other than to instruct readers to add an "s" to "work." I should have used the preview option! How could an English teacher not know that?

I am SO far behind in checking blogs. So excuse this late THANK YOU for asking for prayers for me and for breaking out the rosary!
