A BLOGGER ASKED ME TO PASS ALONG THIS NEWS AND ASK FOR PRAYERS-DEBBY RAY

I am sure that many of you
know and love
Debby Ray.
She has always been a
delightful blogger and an even more
DELIGHTFUL PERSON.

You might know her by her blog
As many of you know,
she has been struggling with some health issues.
In the midst of her health issues,
they sold their home,
bought a lot close to family,
moved into an RV and are
building a new home.

Debby Ray asked me to share this with you-
“I will be taking a break from blogging for a while and am not sure at this point when I will be able to return. I have no idea how to even begin to write a blog post and there are still so many unknowns ...all of the details are not really important at this time. I have been diagnosed with cancer of the liver bile duct... most of you know I have been fighting this for quite some time. Through the years we have brought our many prayer requests to each other and I have felt yours and have been so grateful for them.
So after 13 days in NC, it looks like I will be able to get out for Mother’s Day. I will be returning to TN the first of the week to get a treatment plan in action at Vanderbilt. Thank you for your prayers! I hope to post updates as often as I am able. Much love to all!”
Debby

Debby is such a dear heart-
please pray for her and all she is going through.
Life is uncertain enough during these times
without the added stress of worrying about
something besides CV-19.

Please leave a message here for her
and she will pop in to read them.

Thank you all so much!
As always, if you don't pray,
please wing healing thoughts and well-wishes
her way.

Have a wonderful upcoming weekend.
Stay Safe!

Debbie will be in my prayers and hope she is able to find a good treatment plan that works for her. Praying for a return to good health and happiness. So many had treatments delayed because if thus virus and hopefully now they can be continue.
