We are the Maier family, and there are seven of us. Jay, Tara, Micalyn, Esther, Andrean, Jenna and Lewis. We have been faced with a challenge; Tara was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer on January 30, 2013. When we first heard the news we looked for comfort in scripture and opened the Bible randomly to Psalm 40. It reads:
I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in Him.
We knew then that as a result of our faith in God through this trial, that many could see and fear the Lord. This blog was the easiest way to share our struggles with you. We hope you are blessed by it.
