I want to thank ALL of you who have been praying and interceding on behalf of my wonderful Sister in law Aveena, who is battling, fighting, against a horrible cancer (then again which cancer is NOT horrible!).. called Ewings sarcoma. Thank you for your thoughts, your prayers, your love, not only for my Sister, but for my little bro, and their 4 little kiddies whose lives have all been greatly affected by this nasty disease.

Even though she's facing all of the chemotherapy (she's on triple dose Chemo), and subsequently all of the side effects that go hand in hand with it....and even though she's unable to be with her babies, (as she has to remain in Auckland, and the family are in Kaitaia), her faith is unwaivering....
she has her eyes on God and is so quick to praise him. She is so very very positive, and so steadfast in her belief that her God has this sorted... and that he knows best! Isn't that awesome!?
It's so much better facing tough situations like this with God...knowing he's there and has your back! It doesn't mean it makes it EASIER... just better. Knowing that so many of you, and other friends/family have been standing with our family in prayer during this tough time has been such a major help! It feels like the load is being shared!!
To Leonie and Kristy, thank you guys for the beautiful beanies! I will have to get a picture of Avee wearing them to post for you to see!! You guys are a blessing, and I pray that you'll be just as blessed by others!! x
