Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences; all events are blessings given to us to learn from.

About the music: The song that is playing is "Praise You In This Storm" by Casting Crowns.

As you listen to the words of this song, gaze at the photos of Liz and know that she breathes this message into her heart. Into her being.

The storm rages and still she hears the voice of one who heals, who loves beyond measure, who carries her when her strength fails.

Hope. Believe. Pray.
Be in the moment.
With Liz.

June 23 - From Joyce:

Liz has the most beautiful head. After Nancy (her hair technician) shaved her head tonight, it reminded me of the precious head I kissed the day she was born--so perfectly shaped with ears flat against her head. For some reason that seemed to be important to me back in those days--flat ears. And the pink birth mark at the back of her neck is still visible, just like her brother Mike's.

Liz's hair began to fall out last Sunday and by today it was coming out in clumps so Liz decided to go ahead and get it shaved. A rite of passage in a way. Several of us gathered for the event--her best friend Diane, daughter Jessica, sister-in-law Andrea, and me. We had lots of laughter, surprises and great joy as we witnessed Liz let go of her gorgeous hair and claim her new look.

Nancy applied some make up and brilliant red lips; I kissed the top of her shaved head. For now she is not planning to wear a wig and will apply lots of sun screen to her scalp. Tomorrow Liz has her second chemo treatment; this will bring her one step closer to surgery.

Liz told me to share a few photos with you of her transformation--before and after.

Take care,

Joyce Anne

May 28 - From Joyce:

I purchased some angel T-shirts from Chico's last week and we wore them on Memorial Day. Liz managed a first social outing to join us. On the left is Liz's dear friend, Kiersten. Next to her is her mother, Yvonne. Next to Liz on the right is her daughter, Jessica and then me.
Just wanted you to see how wonderful Liz looks.

 

August 12 - Prayer Shawl for Liz from Karen Getzinger:

This shawl is from all of us to Liz. I dedicated rows to everyone on these lists as I knit, like folks
are dedicating miles run for Liz. So it has truly been a group project, whether you knew it or not! It feels like I've spent time with each of you and I'm reminded what a great community this is. You've all touched this shawl through our online community just as if we'd been able to pass the shawl around and each touch it. In addition to the blessings of all of you, the shawl has collected lots of prayers and blessings for Liz from friends of mine as well as from perfect strangers who asked me about it. I really believe that when Liz wears this shawl, she will feel all of those blessings, love and support.



When I started knitting the first prayer shawl I made, I thought that in order for the positive energy to get in it, I had to have everything just so....peace and quiet, just the right music on, a special candle lit, but quickly realized that if I needed that, the shawl would never get done! So Liz' shawl lived with me for the last month or so, once I finally found just the right yarn. It is a silk/wool blend, very light and soft, yet it will provide warmth. And it is teal, the right awareness color. Its baskets multiplied on the shores of the Hood Canal at Girl Scout Mom and Me camp with my 7 year old, in parks, while visiting with friends, in Starbucks, during meetings, and even in line at Costco.

The Lyrics:
words by Mark Hall/music by Mark Hall and Bernie Herms

I was sure by now, God, You would have reached down
and wiped our tears away,
stepped in and saved the day.
But once again, I say amen
and it's still raining
as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain,
"I'm with you"
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away.

Chorus:
And I'll praise you in this storm
and I will lift my hands
for You are who You are
no matter where I am
and every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
and though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry to You
and raised me up again
my strength is almost gone how can I carry on
if I can't find You
and as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away

Chorus

I lift my eyes unto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth
I lift my eyes unto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth

Chorus
