A Gentle Whisper

Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. 12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.
I Kings 19:11-12

Father -

The thought that you would cease to speak, shakes me. I have become wholly dependent on your whisper. I can barely remember how to navigate in silence.
Still - I find myself guilty of busyness and activity (wind, earthquake and fire) that surely clouds my ability to hear your voice. Help me prioritize stillness so that I may know you. I long to hear your whisper, as you pass by.

Walk for the Cure

It seems I can't get away from it. No matter where you go this month - pepto pink greets you in every store! Pink ribbons, banners, balloons, stationary, socks, t-shirts, bumper stickers, coke boxes, NFL football teams, and every product in America is declaring that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Following close on the heals of this 30 day effort is the Dallas area 3 Day Walk for the Cure.

I love the job that Susan G Komen has done in getting all of corporate America involved in the game. But the truth is, what Susan G Komen does best is mobilize the average American woman to action on behalf of herself and every woman she loves. It's the mass movement of Walking for a Cure that is transforming the hearts of the apathetic and giving hope to those who struggle with this deadly disease. Many are remembered. Many are encouraged. Many will be saved.

This year my niece Kelsey and her mom (my sister in law) Julie - are walking 60 miles in 3 days to declare they care! They care about Molly Greenwood (Our mom, grammy and 15 year cancer survivor). They care about me - recently diagnosed in 2009. And they care about every women who is or will soon face this obstacle head on.

I know you care too.

Will you join me in demonstrating our concern by helping Kelsey to raise her support for the walk? Simply click on the title of this post to go directly to her page and make your contribution. All funds must be raised by November 3rd! A tax receipt will be forwarded to you from the SGK Foundation and a great amount of appreciation and thanks will be coming from the Lang/Greenwood Support Team.

Together we can find a cure!
