Happy Easter to All!
Let us all revel in the miracles of God.
Today, I'd like to tell you a love story about my friend, "K."
For K, March came roaring in like a lion.
K was just diagnosed with a rare, aggressive ovarian cancer, at age 19.
The stakes are high.
She is a stunning girl, a former student and recent graduate of mine. She had been my student for four years and is one of the most dynamic artists I have ever been privileged to have in my classroom. K is a gifted painter, a very hard worker, a dedicated artist, and an utterly good person.
Everyday, she inspired the younger students to work harder,
to challenge themselves as she challenged herself.
I know this, because they have told me.
She has been confronted with a beast of a disease.
She is truly a tender lamb
who knows the difference between right and wrong.
She is a young, courageous woman.
She has recently selflessly cut off her own hair to donate to others.
She wanted to do it on her own terms.
We are all asking God to be her lion right now.
To be her champion.
The battle is His.
Her tumor has been completely removed
and she begins further treatment next week.
K, I am praying for your full recovery.
You are in my heart daily.
I love you!
I have loved you since I met you as a freshman
and understood your creative hunger.
I love you more now for the person you have grown into and become
over the last five years.
Me & K (before she donated her hair).
May we all have courage and faith in life's trials.
Peace to you all, this week. Jesus has risen
and He taught us to trust!
