The Out-Pouring of Love

Where do I even begin? I am amazed by the incredible people who have rallied around me and behind me just since Thursday. I have had an abundant amount of emails from best friends, old friends, new friends, people I have only met once or twice, and from people I only see from time to time. As many of you know Ryan, Charley, and I attend James River Assembly in Ozark, MO. We are both currently in a fitness class (boot camp) three times a week. On Friday, our classes took time to rally around both Ryan and I and just pray for us. Ryan had the opportunity to share with one of the pastor's our current situation. He quoted the scripture from James that I have posted on my blog. He also told Ryan that he couldn't help but feel that God was going to create a miracle. Last night we spent an evening with Hilary, Kevin, and Zach. Hilary gave me a pink beaded bracelet with a charm. One side says Promise and the other has a pink ribbon. Today I got an email from one of the most wonderful girls I have ever met, Kristen Feola. She had ridden in a 50 mile bike ride for the Breast Cancer Foundation and wore a pink ribbon in my honor. Another wonderful friend, Becca (my hair-stylist), is taking time out of her weekend to actually cut and color my hair this evening. My appointment was originally next Thursday, but because we don't know where we will be in this process, she is willing to sacrifice time with her family to make me look beautiful.....and she always does! Today, Ryan, Charley, and myself spent time in Branson shopping with my parents. It was nice to spend time as a family. Thank you God for an incredible amount of support!

I am walking/running (and by running I mean it will be at a pathetic, gasping for every last ounce of oxygen on the planet, God help me, slow trot type of run...HA HA) on July 4th in a 5K to benefit cancer programs at SE hospital in your honor! Now, the only thing I need you to do is to coordinate my running outfit!! I am thinking pink and glittery. :)

Love, Anne
