Thursday Thinking - "Instead of Fighting, Now We're Dancing"

I was so moved by this interview with Jenna Vancura on Minnesota Public Radio's "The Daily Circuit" program. It's tough to listen to, but so thoughtful and real that you should. Please do!

I admire and appreciate Jenna. Cancer is taking her body, but her honesty, courage, and grace outshine and overwhelm the disease. It's a wondrous and beautiful thing to see someone with a terminal illness living in a way that will outlive and outlast her illness. Join me in praying for Jenna, her husband, James, and her family through this difficult time. And pray for the loved ones in your life who are facing similar circumstances.
