My updates for her blog must not have been refreshing. Apparently on 1/11/11 she had a stroke and her 12 year old daughter found her shaking on the floor. HEARTBREAKING! I don’t know Joanne at all, but my heart breaks… I feel like I do.
I even emailed her a few times back and forth when I was preparing for our wedding. She is the sweetest. Her husband is now updating her blog. They have struggled in marriage, parenting, moved, homeschooling, a lot… she is so real!
I wondered if you all, MY blog friends would join me in prayer? You can read the start of the story here: http://thesimplewife.typepad.com/the_simple_wife/2011/01/4000-hits-today-on-this-blogwe-are-blown-away-by-your-support.html
PLEASE PRAY FOR HER! I think of the song I posted yesterday – Joanne didn’t think that “this stuff” would happen to her, but I know God is going to use it for HIS glory in someway. Somehow. It also puts into perspective for me, the things that drive ME crazy vs. what her family is going through. WOW!
JESUS HEAL JOANNE!
