He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
- Isaiah 40:29-31

The Face of an Angel

Heaven gained the face of a beautiful child yesterday. Henry Scheck earned his angel wings yesterday morning after a battle with Medulloblastoma . Our family had the honor of meeting Henry when both he and Joshua were receiving radiation this past summer. He loved to watch Curious George while he was awaiting his turn for radiation. Once he woke up from the anesthesia, his dad Bryan would have a pop tart ready to eat. Henry was a true hero and was loved by so many. I ask that you please keep his parents and his two sisters in your prayers as they learn to live life without their precious Henry.

Again, it shatters into a million pieces. I wonder how many times our hearts can do this and heal. I don't doubt God, I doubt me.
