Think Pink: Hope
The theme at I Heart Faces this week is Pink, in honor of breast cancer awareness. I have been lucky (blessed really) enough to remain untouched by this disease so far, as far as my family and friends. However, I have been brought to tears by several of the inspiring and touching entries this week.
That said, I wasn't going to enter a picture this week because I thought that I wanted the spotlight to stay on breast cancer through survivors, memories, fights, bras, and more. However, I happened upon this picture of Jayci and decided to go ahead and enter it because it represents so much hope to me. And that's really what this week is all about isn't it? Hope for a future, for a cure, for fighting and winning. And nothing says that more to me than the sweet innocence of my little Jayci. I pray that she will never have to face breast cancer in her own life or in those around her. But if she does, I pray she will face it with courage and even joy in knowing that she serves a God who is still good, even when things are hard.
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
