Tonight as I tuned in to my local television station, I heard the story of 4 yr old Hannah Garman who lives in my town. She was diagnosed in late October with terminal cancer. Her mother also died of cancer two years ago so I can only imagine the deep grief and heart wrenching pain this family is experiencing at this time. When asked, this child's only Christmas wish is for Christmas cards, period. As I read her online journal (found here) I sat at my computer shaking my head in disbelief repeatedly asking God to heal this child. My thoughts drifted to my own children and I thanked the Lord for each of them. As you do the same, remember to let them know they are special and very much loved by you. Tuck them in and pray with them and over them. The blessing of a child is often forgotten in our day to day routines yet God is mindful of them constantly as He is with all of us. Before you buy one more Christmas present or wrap yet another gift please, please think of little Hannah. Consider sending this precious child a Christmas card. You can find her story and the address at this link. For every parent, step-parent, foster parent, relative, friend or neighbor who cares for a child, please pray for Hannah and this family. They need a miracle that God alone can provide.
