I Come To You With A Heavy Heart Asking For Prayer For Beth Marie

One of the bloggers I discovered early in my 
blogging life was 
Beth Marie
Her blog is 

I emailed Beth Marie quite often
outside of the confines of 
commenting on her blog.
In the past few weeks I have not had
any response to my emails to her
and I have been 
anxious and worried about her.
Yesterday her good friend, 
Carol, @ Rambling On
did an update on her health situation.
Beth Marie and I talked because
she was dealing with same type of cancer
that a friend of ours dealt with.
He has had recovery with some
permanent side effects.
However, it has not been a 
good journey for Beth.
She has fought the good fight with
radiation and chemo
and has suffered a lot of pain and anxiety.

At this point she is in hospice
and is looking towards
GOING HOME.

Please pray that her passage is a peaceful one.
Please pray that they are able to control her pain
and give her and her family 
peace and comfort.
I have shed tears for her 
just knowing her as a blogger-
I can't imagine what her family and
close friends are going through.

Please pray for a peaceful journey for her..
or- if you don't pray-
please send good wishes and kind thoughts.

Thank you!

I love you, Beth Marie, and I know
you won't read this but I think God
will let you know!

I will be gone today with
the grandgirls
so bear with me-
I will be back Sunday.

Thank you for sharing this. I have followed Beth for some time and have periodically left comments on her blog, wondering how she is. She has fought a hard battle and I know her family is hurting. I will be praying for God to be merciful to her. So thankful for all our blog friends and the friendships we share and the ability to pray for one another.

Thank you, Diana. My prayer is that Beth Marie will have a peaceful journey that ends in joy indescribable, and that her loved ones will be given grace to bear the loss. What a sweet friend you are to share this so that we can be praying.

NanaNor's said...

Diana, I can't say it any better than Cranberry Morning did. I know how hard it is to loose someone who you are close to. Beth Marie sounds like she is an incredible woman who has been a blessing to many. Carol's blog was so special as well. It doesn't matter what type of cancer Beth Marie had, just that she will be healed soon. The glory that awaits her and the joy! I'm sorry for all of you who have known her and loved her.
I hope your day today with your girlies will bring you laughter and smiles.
Thank you for sharing this need. Praying for all.

tammy j said...

oh diana.
your simple words "going home" say it all. and peace.
and yes. she is in my every prayer. xo

Kelly said...

this is so sad to read! i hate to hear of anyone that has come to the end of their journey with cancer in this fashion. she has fought a hard battle! i will keep her family in my prayers. Having a loved one in hospice care is not easy. But, at least the end won't be unexpected and they will have a chance to say their goodbyes. Not everyone gets that in life.

LV said...

That is why it is so important to enjoy each day we have. Tomorrow can be too late. Blessings to her and family during this difficult time.

Debbie said...

Prayed for Beth, and her family...and for you, too Diana.
Love to you, sweet girl.

I have loved her for quite awhile, too. I have prayed for recovery, but if not to be, for comfort, understanding, support...just for HIM to wrap her tightly in HIS arms and take her gently, when it's time.
We've lost a few bloggers along the way...all from cancer...I pray every day for a cure...

Kathy said...

I'll be praying for Beth Marie and her family and friends. So hard to lose someone, but what a glory for them when they see Jesus face to face.
