Small Heroes


This young boys story and his mothers strength have impacted my life. Andrew is the boys name, he was diagnosed with a very aggressive brain tumor August of 2009 he passed away December 15th of 2009.
If you check out his mothers blog you will find her strength there in her words. Her faith in God has inspired me. I don't know if I could handle the loss of my son as gracefully as she has. I have a little boy who is about to turn 1 1/2 and he is so precious to me that I can't imagine that pain. I know that God has a reason for the test he puts us through in life, but sometimes it is hard to find something to point to that seems good when everything feels hopeless. Keep this strong mother in your prayers.


 God, through whom strength is made perfect in weakness, I pray to you, give me the strength I need.
You have said, that to who have no might, you will increase strength. I am weak. Bless me with a measure of strength, as may be sufficient for me.
When I am tempted by evil, deliver me, by granting me the power to overcome it. When my daily work is too hard for me, give me the strength to be able to do it.
If my burden oppresses me beyond my bearing, lighten my load, that my strength may be equal to it.
You have helped many, I beg you to help me.
